    Weekend Proto Fun 5/4/2012

    Well, lets see if we can make a go of this as a regular feature.

    I had hoped to upload a new photo, but my employer's proxy and trainboard's image uploader don't get along, so I'll start us off with something from the archives.
    Portland and Western's Harbor Turn Southbound (heading West SouthWest here) On old BN/SP&S tracks. She's moving about 10MPH heading for Banks Oregon where the power will swap ends of the train and take off on former SP tracks for Hillsboro and Beaverton where it will switch back to former BN/OE tracks and head for Tigard.
    This was April 10, 2010's train.

    I hope this one counts, too. It's from March 2011, and represents remains of a trestle that once sat just outside the town of Keasey, Oregon. It's just far enough off the road and that much in the brush that I am not sure we would have seen it in May when the plants would have been leafed out...

    Here's another trackside structure. As usual, I look at it from a model perspective. This could be an entire structure or just a partial relief. It is Tief's Wallboard and they make polymer exterior insulation and finishing systems (coatings). They have mostly boxcars but some tank cars, too. The siding is between Tief's and the silver building on the right. (The silver building is Rio Supply.) The old engine terminal is in the left background of this picture.



    In any case, it is probably better than a third week of The Lord's Kitchen restaurant.

    My friend Al Currier and I were out roaming on a sunny Fall day. En route to our spending an afternoon in southern British Columbia, thirty two years ago one of our stops was the BN yard at Sumas, Washington. This old F unit was starting to show her true colors:

    Doesn't need to be new. Doesn't even need to be yours as long as you have permission to post it.

    I love "out the window" shots.

    I just checked Buddy Burton's very nice Iowa Interstste photo. Anyone notice how nice the attached photos look these days? They're larger for sure.
