My first 44 ton switcher. Been looking for one for a while. My first New Haven too.

Now - to paint the hoods orange!

Personally, I would leave it as is.  I like the understated look.  

Maybe I'll paint one hood Orange and leave the other one black 😁

Hi Train Room Gary:

I started around 1995 and completed most of my layout within 6 months, and had a great time building and decorating it with my young children.  I've tinkered with it ever since, and will probably continue to do so for the rest of my life.

I do not have a video of my layout on YouTube.  What I have on YouTube is something I shared on this Forum when I joined it in early to mid November, 2017.  It's a video of Phil Klopp's layout and a model train song I wrote entitled: Who Am I (Rollin' By).  Here's a link for the video and song:

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

Wow - Thanks for sharing video and Model Train Tune.

To Gary and all our Forum friends: please feel free to share the above YouTube link for the video/song with anyone you think might enjoy it.

In my little world, I leave this troubled world behind.

When I first saw this print, I thought "I want to be the guy who's pointing."

Then I added the comments and realized my destiny is to be one of the guys carrying.

I found some pictures that I took about three years ago that I would like to share. Sorry for the poor quality but I took these on 35mm film then used an iPad to retake them. If I go to the Big E I’ll stop along the way and take them on the iPad.

I just posted this on the "Smoking Sunday" thread but it actually belongs here as much or more.

Below is Providence, Rhode Island in the early 1940s.  The view is looking southwest from the Statehouse on a cold day.  More steam than smoke...

Here's my latest acquisition.  I'm hoping it will look good on the wall of the train room:

I will be displaying many photos and post cards of the Providence, Warren & Bristol RR and this will fit right in.  The sign is about 11" x 14".

The New Haven purchased 22 Alco diesel-electric switchers #600 - #621 in 1944 and designated them class DEY-5 (diesel-electric-yard). They had a 1000 horsepower turbocharged engine and developed 57,500 pounds of tractive effort. Some lasted into the Penn Central era beginning in 1969. These are MTH PS3 models.

I posted these pictures on another thread but since there has not been much for us New Haven fans recently, I’m posting them here too.

The New Haven Railroad acquired the Virginian E33 electric motors in 1963 and, designated as EF-4, used them for freight operations between New Haven and Bay Ridge in Brooklyn, New York. They were later used by Penn Central, went to Conrail in 1976, and were retired in 1981. The twelve locomotives were purchased by the New Haven, where they were known as "bricks," for $300,000. They had 3,300 horsepower, 98,500 pounds starting tractive effort and a maximum speed of 65 mph. My MTH Premier models are older PS1s.

I guess I REALLY liked my RDC1, but he was lonely all by himself, soooo.... 

When I bought the original, 3rd Rail had two, but I passed. After seeing the one, I felt another calling my name. Unfortunately, by the time I went back to 3rd Rail, they had sold the other. Luckily, on their links page, it list another Forum Sponsor, Western Depot. Called them, they had one, so now I have two!!! 

I REALLY have to stop reading MELGAR's posts!!!

Apples55,

You will just have to learn to control your impulses - as I have learned to do - as you can see from the pictures below. I'm beginning to think it's a good thing that Sunset has sold out of these...

I see you were able to get one of the RDC2's - I had to settle for two 1's. And I guess I can't hold you totally responsible for my impulses... this Forum is absolutely rife with bad influences

The first two ALCO DL-109s were delivered to the New Haven Railroad in December 1941 with a total of sixty received by April 1945. During World War 2 they were used in passenger service during the day and freight service at night. The original livery was Pullman Green with Dulux Gold stripes. Each DL-109 had two 1,000 horsepower turbocharged 6-cylinder diesel engines. They were geared for 80 miles-per-hour, produced 53,000 pounds tractive force, and were retired in 1959. My MTH model of New Haven #0719 with PS-2 and a BCR has been running regularly on my layouts with no problems for more than fifteen years.

Photos of my just-received Sunset/3rd Rail model of New Haven ALCO PA #0771. The New Haven purchased #0771 (class DER-3a) in 1949 for use on passenger trains. The PAs had 2000 HP and were geared for 80 MPH, then re-geared for 90 MPH in 1953. They lasted in freight service on the New Haven until 1965. The Sunset model is in the original green and gold livery with which the PAs were delivered.
