    Wayne, thank you for all those pics, love em!

    Everyone else - great pics, lets see more!

    Chessie, what is that guy on the tower doing? It either doesn't look appropriate, or like he's using a jack hammer up there

    Thanks for the kind words Chad and viperman: it was an enjoyable day.

    I never even noticed that guy until you mentioned him. :oops: It's hard to tell if there's even a tool there, ;) but it's unlikely to be a jackhammer. Perhaps it's a floor polisher, or maybe he's just got his thumbs hooked into his belt loops. The nice looking loco doesn't appear to be equipped with a flasher, though. :rolleyes:

    I didn't even think of the thumbs in belt loops, but now that you say it...

    July, 1954 - Santa Fe Engine 1108 donated to Ardmore, OK

    To celebrate my first day as a member here, I would like to sahe some photos from my Grandfather's collection. While he was the Station Agent for the Santa Fe in Ardmore, OK - he found out that Engine 1108 was being retired. This Engine had been in service at Ardmore for may years before being sent somewhere else. He got the Santa Fe to donate the engine and cars to the city. Since the final location was several miles from the tracks, new track was put down, the train moved and the track also moved, a section at a time.

    These are some of the pictures made during the process:

    My guess is that there are probably no bathroom facilities in that structure and this guy's about to go for a distance record!

    Midland Gulf Railways #422. Maybe she'll run the line again someday, but not today.

    Hey, Chessie, I have a question about GM50. How did you get the gold color on the shell w/o shorting out the locomotive? I had the same problem with my hustler's original paint, then again, The hustler relies on chargin it's base, while typical locomotives don't...
