Now, why didn't I think of that? I stand touche'd.

Ok, I have an observation passenger car.  I feel left out....

OK, I am not.  Example of what happens when you take something to the extreme......

Ted, you know what the OGR Forum members will say. Buy another one or two!

Great images from everyone.

Believe me, I've got a list!  Just have to extort more $$$ from the household account! 

Briansilvermustang and Gandydancer 1950,

I am fortunate in that I live very close to the NCTM,  About one and quarter miles by crow or two and quarter miles by car.  So it is easy for me to get to these events like the Streamliners, NS Heritage display and 611 events.

As I recall for the Streamliner Event went on last day a Sunday with great weather ( low temps and humidity) and best of all no crowds.

Here are a couple of aerial shots.

That has to be the most awesome way to go rail fanning !!!  thanks for the GREAT photos !!

I've gotta try that sometime!   really cool...

My Front End Friday contribution. Thought it look kind of cool with the Steam collecting on the pilot area(if that is the correct term). Unfortunately I can only run this particular engine on the inside loop, because if I try to run it on the outside loop the boiler will hit the false wall that is up.

That was the last locomotive I saw being turned at the Collinwood turntable.  1960?

Yes, I believe it would have because the NYC ran long nose forward.

See if this front end works for ya.  

How did you do that?

Sorry for late response. I wish I DID do that. Just searched "steam engine animated gif", and you will get a bunch of them. Copy n paste into your post. I wanted to put one in my signature, but can't size it down. 

And, on an iPad, is hit and miss if it works.  

 

Not to get too far off topic, but this one's kind of exciting

That last one was from a you tube video I belive was a SD90 being delivered in South America

That really came out great. Like how you incorporated the K Line bridge Pier with creek into the layout.
