    Nice looking pictures and some good-looking equipment, too. :thumb::thumb: I especially like the weathering on your boxcars in the 3rd from last shot. By the way, who makes the water tower in that picture?
    Nice work. ;):-D

    I do not know whose water tower it is, but the sharks are plastic Tyco shells on Athern F-7 drives. I Also have some old Mantua sharks (the metal ones from the 50's). Here's Some pics of them.
    :eek: something didn't post right, here's all the pics but they only load as links , and for some reason some of the pics loaded really , really small. I tried to fix it but no luck. :confused:

    Great photos everyone. :thumb:

    e-paw: those links don't have the .jpg (dot-jpg) on the end.

    I think the forum software auto-detects that and shows the jpg instead of printing the link.

    all of my pics are on a 20x30 diorama I built with the kids. The fore ground trees are models, the ones in the background are in my backyard.

    99% sure that is a Korber Models water tower (I have one, looks just like mine). Gorgeous module & equipment. i especially like photos taken outdoors in natural sunlight, goes a LOOOOOOOOOOOONG way towards added realism. Very nice, got any more?

    Heavy mikes and CNJ power on the ANNA main

    A derailment caused the CNJ to reroute some coal trains over the ANNA's Pocono line. Here's some pics.

    ANNA Heavy Mikado

    Here is one of four very heavy mikados assigned to the Bayonne roundhouse. These bruits can almost rip the rails off the ties. The Sailorsburgh heavy mountains are ANNAs only stronger eight wheel locomotives. They are needed their to pull heavy loads up the Blue Ridge Mountains steep grades.
    The second photo is of a ANNA mountain making a last appearance on the Bayonne turntable. This facility was demolished and is being replaced.

    e-paw :Arrival of another Baldwin built Heavy Mountain

    At the New Hope Pa. train show on 11-2-08, Charlie from the HO railroad equipment supplier "RAILSPEC" " Railroad Specilists "was able to transfer ownership of a new USRA heavy mountain to the ANNA railroad. This brings to three the number of heavy mountains on the ANNA property. This is a as built locomotive. Now the discission must be made by the ANNA at it's next meeting weather or not to upgrade to existing standards. Due to the demolission of the Bayonne roundhouse all upgrades will I hope be done at the Sailorsburg facility. This will be discussed at the next meeting with proper restitution being made. Will it be one case or two, Ale or Porter.
