Frank, what type of track do you use? It blends in very well with your scenery.

Back in Sep 2013 my wife and I happened across the Flying Yankee enclosed in a protective cover.  It is in Lincoln, New Hampshire, in the back of the Hobo Railroad area.  There was a small opening that allowed my to take a picture of it.

P1030203

We dropped by the Hobo Railroad again in Sep 2017 and the Flying Yankee was out in the open, minus its wheelsets.  While you really can't see it from these pictures, it looks a lot better now.  Hopefully it will get fully restored soon.

Gandydancer, (90 percent of the track on the entire layout, comprising eleven separate loops, begun in 1995, was referred to as "Hi-rail," was made by K-Line, if I recall correctly. 

One loop, the twelfth, which is in the newer section, is Gargraves, seen here on the left; Hi-rail on the right....

A Pennsy N1s heading out on an overnight mixed freight run in late 1949.  This engine had only a year left before it was retired in 1950 and scrapped shortly afterwards.  Its cab number, 9860, was reassigned to a FP7A in 1952.

This is a 3rd Rail model.

Briansilvermustang, Thank you for that wonderful array of joy. People pull out all the stops when being creative at Christmastime, don't we.

Oh, it counts, all right, NESSMUCK. And that license plate gets extra-points for cleverness extraordinaire!

Apparently, you are a man who knows how to plan and make good decisions.

SIRT, I had to study carefully to decide if I were seeing real life or modeling. For real! If it weren't for those two girls on the left ramp and the outstretched-arms guy in the left foreground, all recognizable as models we have likely all used, I'd have concluded what I was seeing was real life, esp. with that train front aiming at us. Wow.

I see the same in your fine modeling. Always good stuff to see!

Looks like the guy in the white shirt isn't to happy about waiting  .

Thanks, Frank.

Here's our Lionel Santa Fe U28c which has a surprising level of detail for it's age. Eventually I will replace the coupler with a Kadee and attach the pilot to the frame with a spacer from Mario.
