    One of the best and most classy steam operation I've ever seen isn't far from you Candy. The operation at Essex Ct. is a great operation.

    Mantua's General ran (runs?) far better than Bachmann's. Granted Mantua's is HO, whereas Bachmann's is N. I've owned both.

    BTW Jim, that's an excellent diorama. I especially like the trackwork, very typical of the period, minimal if any ballast. Cinders may have been used on highly traveled lines, though usually loose dirt and hope for the best. New York Central's Harlem Division, a heavy commuter line, was using cinders as late as 1900.

    I've always liked the look of the early American class, especially a wood burner. We need more models of same.

    I was there for the first time last November I think. The Boston Railfan club chartered the P&W train from Worcester to Essex and I went along as an "attendant". I was impressed by the professionalism of the Essex group. Trust me, I'm not easily impressed.

    Is this station an original building? Or a "reproduction"?

    Head on.jpg #3 close up.jpg Profile.jpg Train 3, James West's train.jpg Candy: you said you'd like to see more wood burners...well, here's my version of the Sierra number 3. This is the TYCO ten wheeler, that I repainted to represent the Utah & Pleasant Valley Railway #3. It's called the James E. Talmage, and the two passenger cars are the WAYFARER and the WANDERER. Haven't decided on a name or number for the baggage combine...This is the train from The WILD, WILD WEST, with James West and Artemus Gordon.

    I was trying to go for the Russian Iron Blue. Then I painted the boiler-bands with Testors brass...I didn't take the wheels off to paint them, so they stayed Tyco red.
