    Smoke: Great Engines and I like the scenery! I love the look of that Southern engine. That is a GREAT paint scheme.
    TomPM: Nice shots! Your layout is great!

    We traveled up North and went to Lagoon, an amusement park in Northern Utah and I had to take pictures of their 24 gauge train.

    Finished my scratchbuild challenge project today (in the Contests Forum) and took it outside for some pics in the sunshine. This is HO scale, based on a prototype near me in western NY. There is some debate as to whether this was a coal distributor or a dried bean/grain facility.

    **TRULY FANTASTIC PICS so far folks!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    Sure, i go to Janesville to take pics of UP's yard, and down to Rochelle to get GREAT shots of BIG UP power:thumb: , but its REAL NICE to just be able to catch shots of MY FAVORITE ROAD right here in town:winki: . UP runs right through Beloit:mrgreen: (so does IC&E, but i don't model them so.......:toug: ), the problem is you never know when they are running so it kinda hard to get pics:frowns: .

    today dad and i was heading to 2 hobby shops in Rockford, as we headed down Shirland ave. here in Beloit we seen 5 UP MP15DC's!!!:eeki: luckily i had my camera:mrgreen: . on the way back from Rockford, as we went by Ericson's auto salvage in South Beloit i was able to catch these three Geeps!:eeki: sure is nice when the Road you model has a line that runs through your town:thumb: :mrgreen: .

    KEEP 'EM COMING FOLKS! :deano: -Deano

    Nothing new to post here, as everything I have is "junk shots" that I'm not gonna take the time to resize, too much work. But I've gotten allot further on projects.

    Great shots guys!
