**My favorite Model train club layout is The New York Society of Model Railroad Engineers layout in Carlstadt New Jersey on Hoboken Road. I have two good friends that are members there. Louie and Bob. Louie is a long time HO modeler and Bob is the senior O scaler. Bob was the proprietor of the Millburn Hobby Shop which after many years had to close his doors as the hobby faded. A place I miss a lot. Louie like Bob I have known for many years and had the pleasure of working with him. They make every time I can get to there club a good day. I'll show you some photos.
Opps I may have put too large a photo in my last post. It is an area just past the roundhouse and engine maintenance shops. Here is another photo of this engine area. The station which is partly seen to the left in the first photo.
Another view of the locomotives just past the turn table.
* Another look at Frankford station. The local Historical group has a little fun dressing up in 1840's style to greet travelers as the board and disembark to trains. History tells that the N.J..R.R..& T.Co. was the first railroad to run tracks down Bayonnes east side and in Greenville placing tracks paralleling the Morris Canal to Newark Bay. I could not find out why they did it. This was all 20 years or more before the CRR of NJ opened their bridge between Elizabeth and Berger Point and provided rail service through the Bayonne Peninsula to Jersey City.
With my layout taken apart to give me space to build the 1840 Jersey City first terminal which is well documented here, I will post more photos of mu son steves layout.
* First a pair of his Camelbacks he Scratch-built.
These are decapod Camelbacks, that means they have 10 driving wheels. they have a 2-10-0 wheel arrangement.
