First of all Shays can do a full twelve miles an hour @ full throttle.
Secondly, do you really want to go faster on my light rail? Over stub switches? on an 8.5% grade?
Bill,I'm playing with a new camera, working on the learning curve toward getting good miniature photos, I photographed some random stuff in the mountains.
The top photo is the big, as of yet un-named iron mine @ Gegokayoosa NC. on the narrow gauge.
The second photo shows two accurail sou rwy gons I just built. these will go back and fourth from the Southern staging to Montgomery furance, hauling pig iron, as soon as I can make the tabs.
The third photo is the woods crew @ Terrapin knob, posing on the stump of what was the largest tree in Gorre County Tn.
Next is a photo of Montgomery furnace.
last is a photo of the smoke stack @ the Southside Tannery in a trial position, I will need to build a powerhouse near by, and build a coal dump into that trestle underneath the hopper car.
Hey Tyler and BillBill,
Montgomery Furnace reminds me of a town in one of my video games that I have. It's called Red Dead Redemption and basically it's a open map game set in 1911-14 and you have to shoot all the bad guys with a vast array of weaponry. Of course there is a train on the map as cars are too new fangled for that time period, most of my movement is conducted by horseback. I did find a picture of the train that goes around the game and funny enough the railroad's name is the Pacific Union RR. I'm almost considering making a tribute train and having that be one of the railroads connecting with the WRRy. I also think it's interesting how everything about the train is pretty spot on except for the roller bearing trucks under every car EXCEPT the tender, which has arch bar leaf sprung trucks. Even the pilot truck on the 4-6-0 is a roller bearing truck.
Hey Tyler and Bill
Those images are pretty incredible computer graphics there Tyler...looks like a fun game.
Bill your images are pretty incredible too and your camera seems to be working very well.
