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

    Worked on dads layout today:thumb:. dad made up 15 trees, i made up(about a month ago)10 evergreens, so i took them and started the forest on top of the mountain in the corner of the layout. Dad made a REAL NICE brick walkway for the depot and installed it:thumb:. neither of us finished our projects, we have tons more foliage to put in, and dad wants to add two lamp posts to the walkway:).

    PICS BELOW:
    1- MY big steam Bad Boys on dads layout:D(Big Boy, 1 of 2 of my Challengers, and cab forward).
    2- this shot shows the walkway dad(rrol61) made and installed today:thumb:.

    4- my Big Boy rolling through the same area:thumb:.

    Chessie, very nice shots. I especially like the first one – great scene :thumb: .
    Tom, beautiful reefers :wave: .
    Josh, you’ve got a great collection of trucks. I wonder if there will be still some space left for trains on your layout :D .
    Deano, I concurwith Steve. That corner of your dad’s layout and the rocks löök awesome. Your new Cad Forward looks really strange – I LOVE IT :) .

    One more shot of my pawn shop and the hotel from me. I have to do some work on my layout to get some new scenes to take pictures of :oops:

    Naw, Kurt, speaking for myself, I can enjoy again and again looking at the pictures of what you've done so far. Not that I'm discouraging any other modeling...I think we'd all like to see that!

    :thumb: Deano, looking good!! Who's the manufacturer of the cab forward? Looks like an Intermountain unit.

    Steve, Kurt and Dick, THANK YOU guys:wave:, for the VERY KIND words:).

    Steve, scenery complements coming from YOU means a lot, THANKS!:D

    Kurt, i too, will NEVER get tired of pics off YOUR layout;).(so keep posting them:D)

    Dick, your right, the cab forward IS an Intermountain:thumb:. couple things about this engine;
    1- they recommend AT LEAST 24R curves to run it on...they are not kidding. unlike Atherans Challengers and Big Boys, Intermountains cab forward is made PROTOTYPICALLY, what i mean is, in real life the articulated engines first set(closest to the cab) of drivers were stationary, and the second set would swivel, Intermountains cab forward is set up like that, Atherans articulated engines are not, BOTH sets of drivers on them swivel, making them more forgivable on 22R curves. the cab forward runs good on dads layout except in two spots, as you go into the largest town on his layout, and as you leave it, the curves are just a little to sharp for this engine and it jumps the track:eek::(. not a big deal, in just over a year my son and i will be moving from my small apartment and i have plans for an "around the room" layout with 30-32R curves:thumb:.
    2- this engine is HEAVY and geared REAL LOW, i am guessing it will pull quite a few cars even though it doesn't have any rubber on its drivers. i spent about an hour on the CV's adjusting the speed curve to get maximum speed, though i got it to run faster, you sure wouldn't use this engine for "fast freight"tooth1.

    Considering the small amount of time i have spent with this engine:oops:(about 3hours total running time)i feel for $224.00 Intermountains DC "DCC READY" cab forward is an EXCELLENT ENGINE:thumb:. an engine such as this for that price is a FANTSTIC DEAL!:thumb: KEY NOTES: minimum radius 24R, it has STUPENDOUS DETAILING, and putting a regular OR sound decoder in it is VERY EASY:thumb:, it will take about 6mins, if it takes you longer, well,...thats your faulttooth1.

    announce1 KEEP THOSE PIC's COMING FOLKS!:D -Deano

    chessie4155, no need to make excuses for your figures' behaviour, maybe he is a train spotter too, or maybe he's just looking at that pretty girl down the street. :D :D :D
