    I think we posted this on the wrong weeks thread. So we will do it again here. (Maybe the thread name should start with the date)

    This is in HO scale on the museum layout. It is still under construction. :cool:

    Manager's Specials - Who goes first?

    Both UP and NS Manager's Specials met at the Ballantyne station during the peak of the fall colors in North Carolina. They had stopped for the night allowing all the passengers to attend a elaborate dinner at the Ballantyne Country Club. Still wearing the Southern tuxedo black, the F7 A+B+A units were absolutely gleaming with fresh paint from the refurb shop and will soon be wearing the NS horse on the nose. UP chose to make an "excessive power" statement utilizing an SD90/43MAC to pull its 5-car passenger consist. The extra 50' box car carried golf carts, a few four wheeled ATV's, extra cookout grills, and lawn chairs for the passengers to use at senic stops along the mountains. (Note the catenary poles awaiting power lines for the new Acela service to North Carolina. The wire has been bought, the crews are ready, so soon the cat-lines will be up and running allowig Amtrak to bring back speed service to the Carolinas direct to Washington D.C.)

    Jesso, I love that trampoline sign1.
    Ralph, once again I admire your industrial scenes.:thumb:
    Wayne, beautiful engines.
    Spitfire, your downtown scene is awesome. I especially like the b/w photo.
    Deano, it’s really good that your layout have so many grade crossings – I love these shots.:wave:
    Tom, impressive pictures of that refinery
    Mark, if it was still possible I’d say your pictures are getting better and better – I love your last pic.
    Herc, every time I see your shots, I almost regret that I gave up n-scale a few years ago.

    Here are two pictures of the scene I am currently working on.
