And this pic I took yesterday:

MTH got the horns almost correct. On the prototype they are centered whereas on the model they are offset to the right but I'm good with it. Also, the trucks are white on the prototype, not gray.

 Lew, that is a very handsome locomotive'.. Didn't know NASA had locos. Where did you take that photo?  We need more information and history'...

Ted, the prototype photo was taken at the Kennedy Space Center by a NASA photographer. According to Wiki they have 38mi of track. I have permission to post this map because it is marked as Public Domain (by Wiki):

Now how cool would it be to build this as a model RR. Saturn V rockets and all........

Good evening, I shot a couple of short videos last week for this weeks Front End Friday.

In the first video we see Pennsy M1a 6715 patiently waiting at W Interlock.

The M1 and it's crew should have been long gone by now but had to set off three coal hoppers for a local business. This delay has put them behind schudule and will now have to wait for a boxcar drag which is led by a Pennsy L1 to pass before they can proceed.

The second video is M1a 6715 getting under way with its coal drag.

Here's my contribution to "front end Friday".  The Big Berk pulls out of the hole, she may be pulling Harriman's on the commuter run, downgraded from the main and the Atlanta Express, but the engine man knows the power of this steed and he hesitates not and hangs on the whistle.  What a show for all the kids in "small town".Berk pulls out of the hole

 

Have a great weekend...Don

 That is so cool Lew'.  The east side of that yard should be adjacent to Coco Beach'.. I watched rockets go up from areas outside Nasa area in 1982. Been to Coco Beach, but don't recall the yard'... 

Definitely a great idea for a layout'.......... Thanks for posting'... Lew'... 😃

Its 1950 and with increasing tension in the free world, the Air Force Missile contingent, based in Small Town along the right of way of the Leonardtown and Savannah (ne "Long and Skinny)   begins to move their missiles up from storage to be ready to fire and defend our nation from those "Ruskie Reds"!!  (Anybody here  besides me old enough to remember when we actually had "Minutemen" missile batteries around our towns, I had one).

Happy F.E.F everyone !!

  • Air Force Train: Air Force to the Nation's Defense

Good evening, I realize that this post is really for model or toy trains but I can’t resist posting these photo’s taken today of some NS trains in the newly fallen snow that we got overnight.

This is the largest amount of snow we have had so far this year.

So here are some photos and a short video for my contribution this week for FEF !!!

Whats better than a Friday off work, nice white snow and big black engines !!!

Have a good weekend !!!
