    I think I had a TYCO Midnight Special shark....but that was a LONG time ago. I got my first train set (electric) on Christmas 1972, a TYCO Long Hauler, GP20 (UP), several cars & Caboose. I also got a little 0-4-0 Santa Fe switcher with a slope back tender. Shag carpet is NOT good for Steam locos....

    JimJ, your "random" photos are beautiful. You do excellent modeling, besides having a fantastic eye for photo composition.

    Jim, I love your random fun shots. They harken back to a kinder, gentler era... even if life was harder, it was a lot simpler.

    Good stuff everyone, here is another contribution.

    Was at the club yesterday and took a few pictures while I was there of my PC SD45 and SD40 on a manifest.

    I'm liking these night scenes. Makes me want to add a few lights to my layout. I would need very dim yellow lights to simulate lanterns and kerosene lamps because electricity was scarce in the backwoods and hollers of Southeast Missouri 1915-1925.

    Some friends told me about their attitude toward Indian bikes so I made a sign. Thanks for noticing

    " Candy, love the sign for Indian owners...captures an era right there! "

    That was suggested by a friend. I made it on my computer

    Man sakes alive. Those clouds look real and so does the horizon. Outstanding!
