Lee, your photography is very nice. Keeps us inspired with hints to do better ourselves.
Been AWOL from the forum awhile. Here's a few to try to make it up for lost time.
Geez, I am out of it. Was thinking today is Wednesday!
I thought it was too...that's what working midnight will do to you
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.
When I first looked at the picture, I thought the sign said, "Every Hour is Happy Hour."
would that be a PA PA?

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 took this picture in May 2014 at Spencer during the Streamliner Show. These guys could very well be some OGR forum members, However I've blurred their faces for privacy .

Speaking of old cameras, I don't think I've posted this one here before.

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.
