On a snowy day in Hudson NY, a patron of the Iron Horse Bar leans out to yell something as the local comes back light power through downtown to 7th Street.

Nice catch! The fact that you can't even see the rails reminds me of this...

Not quite as "magical", but it fits!

Hi Rob, first Monon steamer I've seen.  Beautiful locomotive'.  Do you have any additional pics, I would love to see more of this beauty'...

Hi Quarter Gauger 48, this is actually The Blue Comet of New Jersey Central RR by MTH parked next to my Monon shop.  I know that MTH did a special run for Mr Muffins Trains of a Mikado 2-8-2, but I did not purchase one.  I do have an F3 though.

If its FEF it must be Friday!

Nice collection, Bob. The black PC is my least favorite GG1 paint scheme (excluding the bicentennial nightmare and the occasional pink/razorback red/light blue desecration), but there is still something very pleasing about the lines of the engine that always stand out. Don’t remember ever seeing the red/white PC before... it makes the black a bit more palatable!!!

Got it,  The black and gold on the steamer are colors of the Monon, as well as the red and gray.  So I assumed it was a Monon'... Either way it is a beauty'...

looks like you have a nice layout going'...

I say this one is a pretty good deal for the modern technological features (good smoke and sounds, and prototypical slow speed, etc.), good looks, and relatively affordable cost. Arnold

Box Cab New York

 

The PRR box cab is a L6 electric. They were failed attempts at an electric freight loco design. Better put, they were never fully developed after the failure of the P5 in passenger service and the eventual decision to move the P5s into the freight pool. The 2 L6s and 1 L6a that were built were used in New York as passenger yard service into the PC days.

Trains, modeling and photography........ of both'...

Thanks for the clarification. Though I am a PRR lover, I am not an authority on Box cab electrics.

No problem! I'm not either but I love the Al Staufer power books.

Happy Front End Friday! This is an old picture from when I filled the 7 stall C&D roundhouse with all my berkshires (and my dad's 736). I have lost count of how many I have now. I think it's 13 or 14.
