    Thanks, nkp174, the J-1's were the earlier versions of the NYC Hudsons.
    By the way, welcome to the Gauge.:wave: There are so many new members here lately that it's hard to keep track of who I've already welcomed.:rolleyes:

    Les, do you have any L-1s? I love those...especially in their as "new" colors. I'm also a big fan of the early 600s...not the later ones as much.

    doctorwayne, thank you for the welcome. I agree that the J-1s and J-3s looked good...whether in bathtub or dreyfuss shrouding too! I'm a nickel plate fan, so their's quite a bit of NYC influence prior to the Js.

    Thanks, Dean, but the 34 is the only brass steamer that I've got. It's an older PFM model of a Boston & Maine loco that barely ran when I got it. I installed a new can motor, altered a few details, and gave it a paint job based on the steamers of my favourite prototype, the TH&B.

    [​IMG]

    And just so she wasn't the only Mogul on the roster, sister 37, from IHC was added a little later. A few details were changed to impart a "family" resemblance, even though the IHC is a more modern loco.

    [​IMG]

    Big power on the Grand Valley is a quartet of Consolidations that are at least the equals of the Erie Northshore's Mikados, shown earlier.

    Here's the 25, passing the siloes at GERN, on a work train.
    [​IMG]

    Number 26 at the Lowbanks shops. She recently survived a three foot dive to the concrete floor.
    [​IMG]

    And the 27, the most-photographed of the four. The photographer caught her in Elfrida, not too far from the station.
    [​IMG]

    Oddly enough, no photos can be found of the 28. She was the second engine on a coal train when Number 26 took her plunge, and was left hanging over the precipice: only the weight of the train behind kept her from falling.
    There is a Number 29 in the works, and rumors are she'll be a bit different from her older sisters.

    I'm looking forward to it!
    Just a refresher...there were 6 L-1s...5 streamlined and 1 that never received the shroud. They were rebuilt from F-19 pacifics to pull a connection to the steam turbine powered Chessie. The 490 sits in Baltimore; it's the largest surviving hudson aside from the ATSF super hudson.

    The L-2s were the 300s. They were absolutely huge! The had the classic modern C&O look of the Kanahwas and Greenbriars. They were actually built before the L-1 rebuilts, but their was already an L-1 class on the roster, so they became L-2s.

    * Don't get to excited. I only have a 300 series that looks good. I have a Mantua 494 that is a typical Mantua nothing extra. I don't run much passenger stuff have tried to get into it but not my cup of tea. Love freights and looonnng coal drags. Give me a 70 car coal train behind an H8 or five GP-7s any day.

    Pics are scattered all around The Gauge and I don't have any new ones (at college and away from the layout for the last 2 months) so I won't repost them here. I am working on getting some stuff on Youtube though and I've got a camcorder videocassette here with some footage of a couple of my steamers which I'll post when I have 'em up.

    Here's what the Grovemont Rail Link (new and better name for the Grovemont Branch, since it's not really a branch but a very local through railroad) ran prior to the diesel era:

    1 IHC 2-8-0, ex-UP
    1 Bachmann 2-8-0, ex-GN, model now dead
    1 IHC 4-6-2, ex-C&NW
    1 IHC 2-6-0, ex-C&NW
    1 IHC 4-4-0, ex-UP
    1 IHC 0-4-0, ex-AT&SF
    1 Model Power 0-4-0, ex-Southern Ry

    These are "non-canon" engines but I have 'em anyway:
    Model Power "Mack Bulldog Express" 0-4-0
    dummy Central Pacific 4-4-0
    Another copy of the IHC UP 4-4-0, which was DOA so we had to order another one. I keep it in case any pieces ever get broken off the good one.
