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.

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.

Brian, your pic looks to be 1939-1950-ish?  This one is early '60s from about the same spot! IIRC (vaguely) Dad took this pic from the Capitol coming into town in the early AM. This pic got me scratching my head over how we were at a different level from the coach yard below. Then I remembered:

Chicago was a large hub for passenger trains. Six stations. This pic taken of a page in a Santa Fe timetable.
