New face in town!

eBay buy-it-now. The merchant said it isn't perfect (railing stanchions and such) but it's plenty good enough for me . No wear marks on the wheels or pickups. I think this beautiful smooth running SW was a shelf Queen. And boy are these Atlas O Sw8/9s smooooth runners. 

I believe c. 1998? Does anyone know?

Happy, happy FEF, everyone!

Funny that I never knew of the FEF thread before until last week.  Going through my vault for some photos.  

First off, my 2-Rail RealTrax Christmas diorama from this past July

Nope.  They're 3-Rail for good.  All I did was just rip out the center rail to see what it looked like and also for a photo op.  My story on that can be found at this thread: https://ogrforum.ogaugerr.com/...17#92376847239374017

Welcome to FEF Kevin. Don’t forget next week we love pics 

Kevin, I second that! We are all pic-junkies here.

Who doesn't love an EM1 Front End?

I haven't posted here in a while because I did not have any front end photos.  So I took some of a few of my PRR K4s engines.

Original K4s engines were built between 1914-28, 425 total.

In 1936 the PRR, trying to compete with the NYC's streamlined engines, applied a full sheet metal shroud to one K4s engine which became the Torpedo.

In 1940, the PRR applied a partial shroud to four K4s engines and these were referred to as the Streamlined K4s.  Some considered these as more visually appealing than the Torpedo.

The K4s and Torpedo are Weaver engines that are upgraded with ERR and Gunrunnerjohn's chuff and smoke goodies installed by forum member Alex_M.  I just picked these up at York and hope to have videos soon of them double-headed pulling a heavy weight passenger train.

The K4s Streamline engine is a Williams model upgraded many years ago with PS-2.
