Hello all   Carlisle & Finch first introduced a mining train in 1898 ...  making many changes over the years till ceasing production in 1915.  Here is an example 1907-8 ...with the deluxe dumping cars for extra play value .    Running atop Voltamp 2" track .

Ok, I hardly care about the little VA steeple cab anymore. Mine trains RULE! 💪

This concept is something I would like to see done today. It might even get me pick up a remote control. The thing oozes all day play value. 

 I haven't even watched it on the video yet 😁

OK, this calls for FRESH coffee and a Poptart, kicking my feet up, enjoying and dwelling on all of this* some.... 

...*I'm recalling the elevator and downhill spiral gravity layouts you posted about a few years back. I thought a lot about how I might somehow manage a smaller dia copy without a huge grade increase,  and a low slung "mining" loco would work I think.  

You post the most interesting things Carey, such great taste and sharing nature makes me feel lucky every time I spot a title and think "I bet that's Carey".  And it's great I'm usually right about it too  

Wonka seems to have nothing on you, let me know when your Golden Tickets are in distribution. 

Do you collect paperclips too? Your makeshift coupler ends always seem so odd and vary a lot. A never-ending search for the perfect hacks maybe?

I was lucky enough to visit Carey's open house in March!  

I know he has some great early prewar stuff, but the prewar and early scale O gauge stuff is even more incredible.  I saw a lot of cool stuff that day.
