Dad probably took this pic at LaJunta. Passenger trains refueled there and I remember there was lots of time to get off and walk to the head end to watch.

Now, tell me something, my fellow model train hobbyists, is that photo by our man BAR GP7 #63, a layout shot, or are we seeing thatview through the eye of a drone flying over a real-life scene (!!!!!!!!!!!) Eh? Huh? Huh? WOW!!!!

You are really good at very, very realistic modeling, sir!!!!!!!In fact, you are an inspiration.

Well, Johan, if you are going to suggest we are experiencing a mutual-admiration-society, then, I'm just going to have to co-operate and agree that it is nice we find something we like in each other's work. It's all great fun, both the crafting of layout scenes and receiving the approval. And I much enjoy seeing the work of so many other fellow modelers, too, through this forum and OGR magazine,

Add to that getting "Likes" from other fellow-posters on this forum, and the whole experience of posting and attending these pages continues to be a real pleasure.

Thank you, again, for your being so generous about my little scenes.

P.S. And in the spirit of Front End Friday sharing, I wonder if this locomotiveIMG_0885 in this scene on my layout is a model of the one seen in the posting, just above, shown to us by STEAMER (?)

Great collection, Randy. Pennsy is one of my favorite roads, and I love their steamers... but there is something incredibly appealing about those box cabs. Thanks for sharing.
