Thanks for the complements guys as the info in this.  I’m glad you like the pic that’s why I took it for you guys to enjoy seeing something different.

Lee, I like the St. Louis scene you captured...I may have to attempt to duplicate it by putting an unused switch with wooden ties on an empty gondola car

Your UP rig is sharp...can't beat the UP color and graphics format...well maybe Santa Fe warbonnet could give UP a run Both are favorites of mine...thanks for posting...

Morning guys, what great photos! I have been off the computer for a few days as the kids and grandkids came to visit and my office is also the guest room. I find it to hard to write on the cell phone so that's why I haven't commented lately.

Lee D, wonderful picture of the switch! I also thought it was a joke when Menards put it out. but that shows how much I know! LOL

Patrick, as always entertaining photos! I always get a smile when I see your pictures!

Lee, I just love the BNSF photos! I really wish I lived closer to some tracks!

Well its Friday and I hope you all have a great weekend!

Patrick, I have to agree with Don, Great scene and what a wonderful back drop area with the mountains! It looks so real!

Larry, n9ice photos, they have one of those bridges in Seattle for Auto's not trains. But its still cool how they pivot in the center!

Paul, I am glad you were able to get a crew together to get the 5 year mothballed engines out and do what they can to get them ready for the big job ahead of them, I am thinking that when there done getting the ABBA F3's ready for the Super Chief you should give them a little paid vacation for going above and beyond normal work! LOL Looks Outstanding!

Lee, wonderful shots! Its nice to see BNSF and UP sharing the same rail!

I hope everyone had a great weekend!

Thank you Mike g., this bridge was totally repaired and repainted a couple of years ago, and it lights up on the weekends in different colors. Today, I had another reason to go down by the riverside and saw this big steamboat. “American Duchess”, who knows where from. Again, the bridge was in the swivel position. Made in 1939.

Ted, great scene! A hot babe can make everything look great!

Patrick, outstanding! Where I grew up there was a hotel that had a Cessna airplane on the roof! I don't know why it was 3-4 miles from the airport. But if you could get to the roof it was a cool photo to be in! LOL

Yes, that reminds me of a Cessna on the roof of an ice cream stand on top of the hill before the long descent to Tionesta, Pennsylvania on the Allegheny River.
