    Very nice everyone! As a change of pace here's the RDC that represents most of the passenger service on my layout stopping at the Art Deco styled bridge station near Kingsport Steel. Steel workers park under the bridge.

    Here's an old photo of a former coal dealer's storage bins which have been converted into an elevator for grain storage. The hoisting mechanism has been moved to the "road" side of the building.

    Here is an old photo of the Schenley Distillery. I would guess taken shortly after the end of prohabition. Our locomotive shed is located just in front and slightly to the south of the grain silos. I think that a model of this complex will be one of my retirement projects. A hi resolution view of Schenley, Pa is on Google Earth. It is quite an interesting area to explorer via satelite.

    Neat picture Charlie, and that's one fancy roof that the photographer was standing on to take the picture.

    I think that he was probably in a dormer, but just a guess as that house is gone. The one in the foreground with the flat roof is still here and the brick house behind it is the one we rent to save driving home.

    I got some train room related stuff today! I finally got a door for my train room and a fan to try and keep it cool in there. Now I'll definately have to put some weight into my double-stack paper containers! It will also be nice to not have to stare at the car from my train room and also it will be great to not have to worry as much about the dust from the garage.

    Wayne, :worship: :worship: :worship: i REALLY liked your first pic:worship: , and i swear the horses and wagon are going to come to life and take off in the second one:eeki::mrgreen: , TRULY FANTASTIC!!!:worship:

    Josh, i hope you enjoy your AC6000 as much as i do mine:thumb: . did you get yours with QSI? i swear the horn in that engine is BAR NONE the best horn sound of my whole fleet!:winki::mrgreen:

    jesso, GLAD you got some stuff for your train room!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    nutbar, i NEVER TIRE of seeing #4100:winki: , thats one of my FAVORITE engines you have:thumb: . NICE PIC!!!!:thumb::thumb::thumb:

    ****************************************************
    SHEEW....OK, now its MY turn:119: , well, i wanted to have my UP FM H10-44 finished by this weekend:mrgreen: .....NOT going to happen:cry: . though i have made good progress:mrgreen: , i am so far from being able to finish it this weekend it ain't funny:frowns: . i finished decaling it, and installed the motor and trucks, sound decoder and light:thumb: (that was a HUGE TASK), but i still have to MAKE ALL the railings, add the front & rear step plates, make the extended stacks(UP had extended stacks on most of there FM's, don't know why?:confused: ), add the horn, window glass, couplers, coupler cut bars, antenna, hoses, rear door step, the builder plates, and repaint the gas & fuel tank for a better match:oops: , along with a multitude of other paint work.:cool:

    I started this project with JUST the Cary shell, NOTHING ELSE(see first pic:winki: ), and now i am this far(see second pic):mrgreen: . Folks, if it wasn't an FM, i wouldn't have gone through this much trouble to get a shell usable:winki: (FM's RULE!:thumb: ). I seriously doubt i will take on such a big project again:eeki: (...though i am kicking around the idea of making an SD20:119: ).

    KEEP 'EM COMING FOLKS!:thumb:

    More and more great pics! Tomkat13, I really like those close up shots of crews at work! That metal electrical shed is wonderfully weathered and I admire the scrap loads in the gon!
