    So it’s me to start this week off with a picture of my Baldwin picking up a reefer at the cold storage.

    Nice photos guys!

    Here's one of the F units that heads up trains on my early 1970's Penn Central layout.

    Here's one from me for this weekend's Photo Fun. It depicts a rural portion of the layout, showing Hudson Highlands #900, with a long freight drag in tow, approaching the bridge over the Black River.

I know, you folks are thinking "Deano, you eat, sleep, drink and breath Union Pacific, whats up with the WSOR pics?" :confused: Well, i have 2 favorite short lines, GBW and WSOR, so i decided to post some shots I TOOK a few weeks ago at WSOR's roundhouse(was the Milwaukee Roads roundhouse)in Janesville WI:up: . it was cloudy at times, so some of the pics are not that great(sorry):( . :mrgreen: -Deano

    More and more great pics! Dean, the KP&W unit is an SD9 purchased from the Pennsey before the PC merger. Here is a fuzzy pic. They did a quick paint over and didn't even bother covering the keystone herald. :)

    ThoseWisconsin Southern units have such an attractive look to them. I really like that "25 years of safety" scheme!

    Josh:wav:, NICE GP38-2!:up:

    Ralph:wav:, THANK YOU!, for posting a pic of that GREAT looking SD9, and giving the info on it:up: . though i REALLY LIKE your KP&W colors, i gotta tell you, i think i like the SD9 the best;) , it really has that used look to it, and it makes sense that they might not have painted the unit yet:up: .

    *********************************************************

    Went to dads today:mrgreen: , WOW:eeki: , I cant believe how much he has been doing on the layout over the last couple weeks:up: . all the pics below(except the last one) were areas done 100% by the "Chairman of the Board"...my dad:mrgreen: . in the shots showing the station platform dad made, thats MY Zephyr:mrgreen: (that engine runs as good as it looks too:up: ). The very last pic is of the campground area done by me;) . i took TONS more pics of the campground, but sadly only one came out good enough for me to post:( .

    GREAT PICS FOLKS!:up: KEEP 'EM COMING!:mrgreen: -Deano

    Josh,

    A while ago we had a photo contest that had a "real or model?" theme that left members trying to guess if the shot was a prototype pic or from a layout. Your internal shots of that mill would have us going, especially if you changed them to black and white! Great structure!

    Gotta say I'm liking this PC theme! Chessie4155, I am loving that cabin car!

    Mark, it’s amazing how many great shots you post every week. That bridge is awesome.
    Ralph, nice F unit. Looks like it has been working hard for a some years.
    CNJ999, your scenery is breathtaking.
    Deano, did that movie remind you of these WSOR pictures? Great shots. And I love the scenes on your dad’s layout. Honest Larry’s ..... sign1
    Josh, beautiful engine.
    Tom, it’s a pity that I cannot run RS-11s on my layout – great engines.
    Brakie, simple but beautiful paint scheme. I especially love the MP-15s.
    Josh, WOW,awesome kit bashing. I concur with Ralph. If the pics were in black and white, you could hardly tell if it was the real thing or not.

    I’ve been playing around a bit with my camera and this night shot is one of the results.
