    Not sure about the loco, but I'd guess NYC was the original owner of both.

    There was a minor derailment at the west turnout to the #2 track today. Photos are now available. There were no injuries and property damage was negligible.

    First an overhead view from the eye in the sky.

    And now some photos from our man on the ground.

    Thanks Wayne. That derailment occured when I accidently tripped the turnout while leaning over the control panel. I was working on another part of the layout at the time.

    That's correct! There were only two orders for RS-32's, one from the NYC, and the other from the SP. Only 35 RS-32's were built, with the NYC getting 9 of them. The Rs-32's would survive into the Penn Central, and then Conrail before serving their last RR, the CNW. All 9 were scrapped by 1986 (except in my layout, 4242 would survive and now continues to serve Riverside:mrgreen:) As for the reefer, it was the first kit I ever built, but it seems to derail often for some reason, and so that's why it's on the sidings in most of my pics. I do not know the history of the actual prototype of the car, just that it was part of the NYC's 'Early Bird' service.

    The reporters didn't stick around for the cranes or the workmen shots? Sheesh... what's the media coming to when they just report and take off?

    Ahhh, what a mighty fine birthday! I didn't get much, a new book, "Intermodal Railroading" and a new Genesis SD70M, UP. I'm working on painting all the details from a DW UP SD70M detail pack, including a new plow. Got 3 fire engines in the mail, that I ordered over 2 months ago too.
