    Weekend Photo Fun February 3, 2012

    Some passenger power and some freight power.

    Life Like E8 with a "Nose Job" to make it look better.


    My home made FTs that I had finished about six months prior to MT and IM both announcing that they were going to make them in N scale. Only the A unit is powered.

    A good sermon should be like a woman's skirt: short enough to rouse the interest, but long enough to cover the essentials.

    Great shots, all. Geep_fan, what scale is your layout?

    For me, slowing making progress, N scale Santa Fe U30CGs using Minitrix N scale shell, will go on Kato U30C / C30-7 mechanisms:

    All the shots are HO, but none of those are my layout. One is my local club, and the last 2 are Bob Foltz's Santa Fe New Mexico Division.

    Good stuff everyone, as usual. Here's my Rio Grande Challenger with a westbound freight crossing the Deer Creek Viaduct partway up Yuba Pass. The loco is an old Westside brass import and can haul anything you want to put behind it, even on this 2.2% grade. Even with a 36" radius on the bridge, the overhang is something else, LOL!

    Tom,

    We have a member that models D&RGW down at our club. Majority of his engines are older brass large steamers. Whenever we do track work, we always have him bring down equipment for the exact reason you mentioned. If the brass steamers make it through, anything will. We did have one case with a large 4-8-4 that make its own extension to a plaster tunnel portal when the cylinders swung out on a 42" radius curve.
