    I can't believe it, I Won, I Won :)
    I'm feeling as giddy as a school boy on his first date.
    Hey Mike @MK I'm now officially part of the club :)

    A beautiful unit Rich, but promise you'll not add saguaro cacti to your scenery to suit. :LOL: :eek:

    No worries of that :) I envision the Southern Pacific Long Valley Branch as existing someplace off the Northwestern Pacific above the town of Willits, along the lines of the Fort Bragg Railroad.

    Those are some fine looking engines! I can't believe I missed out on the MT SW1500s.

    It's Summer 1974 and unknown to the LVB-1 crew working Snyder Box in Long Valley, the railroad they currently work for will not exist in 2 more years. But now for just the moment, lets enjoy the sights and sounds of this lonely EMD SW1500 in Reading paint going about it's duties in Long Valley.
