    [​IMG] Weekend Modeling Photo Challenge "Machinery/Equipment" *Easter Special* Ends Tuesday, April 6th.

    **Due to the Easter holiday this weekend, our usual deadline will be extended 1 day until Tuesday, April 6th!**


    Most of the time we focus on the rail-equipment of industrial/freight operation. This week, I'd like to see some of the other machinery and equipment in use on our railroads. How about some cranes, fork lifts, bulldozers, tractors, and any other type of machinery used to improve railroad operations! :D

    *Please read all rules as they may have changed from previous weeks*

    This will eventually be a waterfront crane, once the freight terminal is permanently placed on my layout. There, it will be used to transfer cargo between the freight depot, rail cars, and boats.

    Not me. I'm still trying to recover my nerves from the 7.2 quake only 120 miles from me. Cheers, Jim CCRR/Socalz44

    Yes, I herd about that. Well once your nerves are reestablished, I hope we'll see some heavy equipment from you. You know, gotta get the dozers and cranes out to clean up all that earthquake damage on the layout. ;)

    Did any trains fall off the track?
