    Kurt, I always enjoy photos of that scene on your layout. Very realistic! Love the pawn shop too!

    Chessie, Great pics! I like the way you add life to your scenes with all the people and the details such as the remodeling on George's place.

    Ed, I wanna live there!


    For my contribution this time around here is a trio of KP&W switchers running light on the Ulster Ave. over pass.

    Thanks! I believe that was the "freight" scheme for the F3's, but most of the CNW F3's I find in pictures are in the "covered wagon" scheme. Here's a link to F3 4065, esentialy the same engine but with the last two digits switched around, and that B unit is an ALCO unit, just so ya know:rolleyes: Welcome to the CNWHS Photo Gallery! - Information

    P.S. Where did you get that CNW RS-36 from last week's photo fun thread? I want one!:mrgreen:
