    Ever heard the expression, "Stubborn as a Missouri mule?"

    (I know some of you have already seen this. I'm posting it as proof to myself that I need to get back to work on my layout and do something new.:rolleyes: :rolleyes: :D

    Neat scene! Of course you had to post the picture instead of just tell us about it since you're from the "Show me!" state afterall! :)

    Thanks, guys.

    To me, setting up these little scenes is almost as much fun as running the trains.;) (Kinda makes me feel like I'm Shamus :D :D ... then I pinch myself and say, "No way! There's only one Shamus and I ain't him!" :p :p :D :D :D

    Casey, that's a great scene and some pretty darn nice shootin' too. I can hear the dogs barking from here!

    I know what you mean about setting up little scenes. It's great to have these stories going on here and there. Makes the model come to life in my opinion (and no, Catt!, it's not a humble one!!:D)

    How about some more shots?

    cheers
    :D Val

    Very nice

    ...and even with out the engine poking in from the left, it would still have been really nice. Move the engine back and shoot again. I can sit for hours and detail mine too!!

    Yep, it's the CM&S' Shay #1 stopped in its tracks by old Hazel. This is a daily occurrance. All the engineer can do is climb out of the cab and wait for Elroy McGinty to get Hazel across the tracks with a load of apples for Johnson's Cider Mill. :eek: :rolleyes: :D :D Of course, between the fired-up Shay and the fired-up dogs, Hazel isn't too disposed to cooperate. :eek: :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

    You're right Casey, we visualise our layouts with scenes like that as we build but not many actually get around to creating those scenes. Your scene is a "natural", I love it.

    Apples. Apples for Johnson's Cider Mill. Ol' man McGinty tosses a sack of apples on Hazel every day at the same time just so he can reach the crossing a minute or two ahead of Shay #1 and force it to stop just out of spite. He's been mad at the railroad for nearly 30 years now. Can't remember why, but he knows he's still mad about something or other. But now those durned dogs are complicating things...:eek: :rolleyes: :D :D :D

    Thanks, everybody. Like I said, I have fun doing this kind of stuff. It's how us old retirees pass the time.;) :D

    Hi Casey, I thought 'ol Mule might have been overloaded but apples won't do that!:D

    I think me and Mr. McGinty have a lot of the same problems!!!LOL:D :D :D

    Casey,
    This one is like an old classic film...every time I see it, I notice something I didn't see the last time!
    It's a fantastic photo!
