Well, the front end of my new ( and probably last) Loco-motion.

Was actually ready to order a Millhouse River Studio 34" in Pennsy detail turntable.  But those $$$$ plus a multiple went for the DP.  Also precludes almost all O-gauge acquisitions for a while.

All because FORD was not going to support us with a new "true" Bronco. And the fact their 4.0L OHC engine self-destructs at around 110K/114K miles.  Mine was at 114K+ needing over $3K to fix.

The one engine wish MTH or Lionel would make in scale size.  Be a great companion to my M-1.

Lionel did indeed make a scale one of these. I saw one at a train show just a few weeks ago  with a $275 price tag. 

Yes, but Jim it is not command control and not a can-motor.  So an expense to up grade.

My mistake, it is semi-scale, however, it is TMCC.

Jim, forum members have had their scale Lionel Yellow Belly upper graded with a Timko can motor including Scott Smith.

Went to the Shelburne Museum in Vermont last week and took some pictures of a locomotive #220,
Built in 1915 by the American Locomotive Co for Central Vermont Railway.
Taken out of service in 1956 and given to the museum.

Great Museum and a must see when visiting Vermont, plan for a whole day.

Isn't there something wrong about this picture?  The flaming exhaust from the jet engines seems to suggest this puppy is setting a rail speed record.....in REVERSE!!!!?   Talk about a ride to remember!    And an open baggage door, to boot!   

Hey, Brian, I see Tacoma Rail engines every once in awhile on the Sound Transit tracks (used be BNSF) which parallel I-5 on the west side between Lakewood and DuPont.  There is a siding at DuPont where they store a few cars enroute to/from local customers.
