    That was a few years ago when the N Scale convention was in Portland.

    If that Alaska engine is supposed to be going on NS, it's on the wrong side of the river. It's been sitting on a siding of the CSX mainline just outside the South Charleston yard all weekend. It's also currently serving as a US Rail lease unit. I got some pics of it myself, but haven't posted them yet.
