    You're running Clarabel backwards also! Clarabel is supposed to be facing AWAY from Thomas I think:D

    Here's a link to a Thomas related mishap which occurred on the club layout (to which I used to belong before I moved). Our club was and is friendly to all Sodor equipment.

    http://www.trainweb.org/ocmr/JamesDay/JamesDay.html

    I was there when this occurred and boy, it was a real smash up! BUT, it just goes to illustrate this loco (DCC added, btw) plus a whole host of other steamies all on the same line! So the kids are drawn to the layout by Thomas and end up chasing your custom detailed and painted 2-10-2 pulling a string of reefers...what's the worst that could happen, they become model railroaders someday? Sheesh!

    BTW...this was a real wreck, not posed. It really did happen this way.

    Nice pictures!

    Just before X-Mas we were driving on the freeway and came across three DM&IR SD40-3's hauling a large consist of coal hoppers,but unfortunantly I didn't have my camera with me.Besides,we were on the freeway and couldn't stop anyways.

    I do have a neat picture of Thomas also when he came to visit Duluth....
