a Black & White Wednesday

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.

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

Just don't call me late for the dinner car.

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

When they were passing out brains, I thought they said trains and I asked for a slow one.

The 2020 that belonged to my Uncle Jim, that I grew up watching under my Grandparents Christmas tree, and it was the Keystone on the front of this locomotive that started my interest in the PRR, and my 671.

  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

You actually had time to play in the back yard??

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...

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.

So cool folks(addressing); keep sharing (continue)...or ... So(conclusive), cool folks(subject); keep sharing ...or So cool folks keep sharing (inspired result)  ???

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    

...and now I've got ♪♪"Conjuction Junction"♪♪ looping in my head if it's any consolation to being being set for a bad joke

From the archives (Ron M):

That is one of the coolest "around the tree" pictures I've ever seen.

Are you the ham at center stage?
