Larry, I sure am glad there are 2 chairs in your picture, cause it sure looks like too much for just one guy!

Mike, I really like your fueling platform, I also have one for my future layout and it really helps to see what others have done!

Guys 

That is the control panel for the old Clinchfield RR. Way back

I was showing some visiting friends the local museum last week so I thought it would be  nice to share some old old stuff. It's a nice little museum. I will continue one a day on the thread. The old box I posted last was a way they use to train guys (new employees) about the different signal meanings. Neat little homemade box.

How about a twofer today? Note the brace for the legs of the sawhorse. I was preparing the upper level of my layout, when the sawhorse collapsed. I wasn't even near it at the time it went. All of my fake snow ended up on the floor. I got so disgusted that I went to Walmart and bought some white cloth material and used that instead.

It's 6:30 a.m., and there's a lull in the activity at the Caprock, Texas, engine facility -- except in the locker room.  The night shift is washing up, while the day shift employees are changing into their work clothes.  The night crew left things in good shape.  The engines for the locals are ready, the yard engines have fuel, clean windows and plenty of ice in their water coolers, and all road engines have been serviced and made ready.  During the night, a three-unit FT A-B-B consist headed by the 175L arrived on the CTX, hours late because of a derailment in New Mexico.  The 175 was replaced by three GP7's, which increased the horsepower by 9%, from 4050 to 4500.  That doesn't sound like much, but the CTX will top every hill several MPH faster, and should arrive at Temple at least an hour earlier.  The 175 will go out on a westbound freight this afternoon.

Passenger F7 A-B-B 307L-A-B will trade out with a two-unit  PA1-PB1 Alco-GE consist on 2nd Number 3.  West of Clovis, it will be up hill half of the way to Barstow, and the extra 500 horsepower will keep 2nd No.3 closer behind 1st No.3.  2nd 3 has the chair cars and more station work than 1st 3, thus the desire to swap engines during the station stop at Caprock.

Both consists pictured here have been fueled and serviced.  Roundhouse Foreman Tommy Willis is frugal with compliments, but he's quietly proud of night laborers Estubio Cruz and Robert Hancock, who have left the cab floors of these consists clean enough to eat off of, and there is not one trace of a bug on the nose or windshield of either engine.  That's the way they do things at Caprock engine service facility.

Wonderful photos everyone!   Here is mine for today.IMG_0283

Wow! A GG1 double-header.  There's going to be some serious speed on the Free State Jct. when this pair leaves town.  Pat, your commuters might get a surprise when these G's show up.

I'm a sucker for 50's era catalogs!

And as a matter of fact I still have a few bow ties around and I can still tie them!
