Based on a Fb group pic, here is my entry. Please post some of yours!

This pic showing most of the latest goodies on my layout. I spy with my little eye... a repro Ives switch tower, an original little green water tower, a new MTH water tower, and some MTH repro 200 series freight cars.

Well, I'm a day late (and maybe a dollar short) but here's a black and white from my layout...

I don't have any black and white photos to post right now, but I really like the idea.  I'll try to get some soon and participate.  Since so much of the great rail photography in the past wasn't in color, black and white photos of steam and vintage models seem to just look "right" in black and white.  I hope you'll keep posting on Wednesdays.

Logan, I took the picture on my iPhone and uploaded it to my computer. Both the phone on the computer have a filter on the edit program that can turn it to blk/wht

Anyone see any irony in a digital b&w photo, of a colorized sihloette, in a tin toy, of a guy with a Brownie?

  Just found out all my old photos in cloud storage at PB, One Drive and Drive are all gone. Nothing much before 16 remains unless I had used it around that time....i.e., I'm going to be severly limited on my expected contibutions here...layout is a mess. Old documents were fine except for saved Marx and Lionel achive info labeled as such. Looks like me & my hobby was the target again 

Oh well, hasn't ever stopped me for too long

Thanks to your help, Cary Tearose, I am able to post a black and white photo to the Black and White Wednesday thread.  This is a shot of my 1930's era IMG_0441 [2)Super Streets trolley layout.  As you can see, it's incomplete (gotta lot of paving to do), and wire to string. I use both 3-rail tinplate trolleys and (when the wire is up) 12-volt scale models.  The smaller flanges on the scale stuff work well on the Super Streets track.  Structures are a mix of  kits and scratch-built, including some I built from Frank Ellison's plans in the old Model Builder magazine.  It's small, but I have fun with it.

                                                                                                                                          Logan

First time to fire it up this year... and it's in September.  I'm beginning to think that if I am too busy to run the steamer, then I am probably just too busy...

I found a couple shots of my old American Flyer layout, which is now gone.  The street lights are a Christmas item bought on an after holiday sale for a couple of bucks.

Hi Chris - Love the idea of a tiered setup for under the tree!  Is the elevated track O or Standard Gauge?  And what are you using as supports for the elevated?

Thanks,

Andy

Any side views of this one and/or more info please?  It looks like something in MESG that I've not yet come across!

It is a McCoy Chief Cle Elum. Picture and text in this picture is from the McCoy's catalog from 1982-1983. Great looking and running engine!

Took an inventory of my 500 series cars, now up to 36.  Also a photo of my #9 trolley that can run off the third rail or off my live catenary. I need to add some people in it and a trailing red light. My parts list is growing for York !!

Here's some shots from 40 years ago of the Wyomissing PA Mall layout. We ran four trains on the two other loops. Two street cars in the area aside the Roundhouses. A coal train in the wiggly mountain loop next to the Power house. A commuter train around 921 Scenic Park. There was a non operating Lionel race set next to the commuter line. Plus an operating Lionel airplane flying about. It was up for the month of January 1977. By the way all the trains and accessories were original, no repaints.

The black and white doesn't matter much I guess as the spirit is there no matter how you read it. ...so much for the Puncuation Crusader
