    This shot of the now defunct locomotive service area at West Mill was taken from a boat on the Hudson River.

    That's a shell I picked up at a flea market for 50 cents. It needs a lot of work.

    That would be one of their Canadian engines. Those Canadian 4-6-2s are favorites of anyone that owns one...very nice machines. They were designed and build well. I've ridden in the cab of that engine before.

I keep checking anxiously for comments and .... nothin'. :confused: What gives? ... you people all work for a living or something? :mrgreen::mrgreen: Okay, well I tweeked a few things here and there and found a couple of loose screws (you know who you are!), changed the oil and topped off the tanks. It's all set to go again. announce1LET'ER RIP!!!!!

    Great pic everyone! I have an excuse too: I spent the last few days installing a flourcent light fixture for the table, and got no modeling done. I'll try to post pics later.

    I was at the doctor's today too! Just a physical though. Hope all is well Jeffrey!


    I have to say I am liking the B&W since it suits the PC so well. Here are a couple of six axle U boats waiting for a train.

    I do too. I was being checked to determine whether or not I have prostate cancer. I hope I don't.
