time to superdetail that turbine cab...

PRR 6-8-6 cab

Hmmm . . . interesting (to a retired Road Foreman of Engines).  It looks like the engine was equipped with a variant of Number 24 air brake equipment, which I thought had only been applied to steam locomotives by Norfolk & Western.

Maybe I need to look at late Pennsy steam locomotives in more depth.

I would have never thought mrs grable liked trains.But she did visit my home state of n.c. during ww2.The nctm has a film showing a train with her on it.To see the men at fortbragg.Buy the time I came along into this world.I saw her in a tv ad.Looks like she running a lionel 2-6-4 steamer.


Took these a couple of days ago. Sadly, when I glued the crew figures into the cab of the locomotive, the ACC reacted to earlier fingerprints and left them on the windows as there was no good way to vent the cab at the time. I'm currently trying to figure out how to make that less obvious.

I really like your work, it looks like someone with a Speed Graphic popping shots in the 40s.

Thanks. On the speeding locomotives I like giving them that "lean" those old cameras tended to give. Even though they're sitting still, they show they're going somewhere.  Adding a little sepia tint helps to backdate further.
