    Here's the TH&B's GP7 number 73, at the Chatham Street roundhouse in Hamilton, Ontario. The photo was taken in the mid-'80s.

    Great Shots everyone!:thumb:

    I went over to PRRman's house the other day, and somehow we both ended up going through some boxes loaded with legos, old baby toys, etc. However, they also were loaded with RARE HOT WHEELS cars and various G1 transformers re-releases, plus a Powermaster Optimus Prime with a complete set of weapons(which is probably as rare as Lionel's Girl Train!)!:eek: PRRman gave me some of the loot, mostly beat up Transformers Armada Mini-cons, but he also gave me all the HOT WHEELS cars I wanted, including a color changer in very good condition, a Matchbox 1928 Ford van for Kellog Corn Puffs (which was aparently a family favorite, but was given to me so as to preserve it better), and best of all, these two!:

    These two are from the "Rail Rodder" mold and in schemes long since out of production:eek: Here's a pic of my newly started collection of these train-cars:mrgreen::
    [​IMG]
    (I already owned the Gray one in the back:mrgreen:)

    Now I'm looking for some of the other versions to add to my collection, so if any of you guys know where to look, please let me know:thumb:

    Not only consecutive numbers, but the trailing unit is unpatched! A rare sight in '78.

    Thanks Charlie! I enjoyed the fact that my model's number was consecutive with your proto units.

    An interchange move with the Kings Port & Western has a PC Geep pulling two KP&W box cars, one in the original blue with orange letters scheme and a second in the current orange with black letters and NY state map. The management was discouraged by the way the orange letters faded so quickly and decided on a snappier scheme with italicized letters that complimented the Penn Central's.

    I think I'm starting to figure out my digital camera. Here's a few close-up shots of the SW1200rs delivering some empty flats to the sawmill.

    Here's an Erie Lackawanna GP35 on a Buffalo-bound freight on the TH&B, about mid-way between Vinemount and Smithville.

    Ha! It was years later when I was looking at those pictures when I realised what I had missed in person. :eek::oops::p:-D:-D
    This is the only other view that I have - I'd guess it to be an RS-11, from you-know-who, although the only identification on it is a small CR above the air intakes on the long hood.

    Great pics this week folks.
    Looks like prototype pics is the "theme" this week.

    OK...
    Here's one that was taken in the late eighties, BD(before digital).
    Privately owned New York Central E8, taken at Essex's Rail Days.
    And yes, thats me leaned up on the pilot. Albeit a little thinner and a lot younger.

    That's an old MDC RS-3. I removed the Alco side frames and substituted EMD side frames from a scrapped Athearn F7. While not an exact fit they're very close. This way I can claim the unit was rebuilt in the yard shop using whatever was available. The rust is just Model Basics rust paint applied with a brush and smeared around with a finger. I would have liked to change the trucks out completely but the MDC trucks and Athearn trucks, while similar in many respects, are not compatible.
