No high grade collectors pieces here just a one of kind Sofue ATSF Mike and some hand built flats and military heavy artillery and one really great smoke unit. 

Good Picture, if you notice the first tank barrel is in travel lock. This helps the gun barrel from bouncing around and putting undue pressure on the barrel mechanism and screwing up a bore sight.

Spectacular work, Erik! I especially love the Shermans. While there's no chains that I can see, you have blocking done correctly on the treads and best of all, you appear to have stripped off the machine guns*. That's something almost no modeler does but would be done in real-life!

*I served in heavy-mech units in the Army, so of course I'd notice this.

I took this photo in Manassas, Virginia on 6/6/15 after my sons and I rode on the inaugural run of 611.

What a great day!

Pic taken from an open gondola coupled behind a B&O EM1 (their 2-8-8-4 articulated) on an excursion train Eastbound out of Pittsburgh c. 1957. Everyone wearing goggles to protect eyes from the steady rain of cinders from the exhaust. Uphill the whole way from Pittsburgh to Sand Patch Tunnel.

UP 844 (then 8444) on a Sherman Hill photo-runby. Excursion train out of Denver for the 1963 NRHS Convention. Dad took this pic. I was running an 8mm movie cam. The fireman was feeding extra fuel oil to make smoke and red flame kept exploding out from under the firebox.

2124 and 2100 double-heading a photo-runby during a Reading Ramble c. 1958. Somewhere near Tamaqua, Pa. I remember getting a cinder in my eye from the smoke. A nurse on-duty on the train washed it out.

Now, that's a passenger locomotive with some real acceleration -- 2 F-M's and an Alco.  I would have loved to have sat in the seat of that consist on the head end of the Cavalier.

D&RGW Royal Gorge paused at the bottom of the 1,100ft deep Royal Gorge c. 1963. One of my many favorite train rides.

The car in the foreground is the Dome. The train stopped for 10min here on every run.
