2 Rails?  3 Rails?  Doesn't matter, I can't count that high in either case.

I love the smell of fresh-brewed creosote first thing in the morning.

If the government knew how much fun O-gauge railroading was, they'd outlaw it!

Common sense is my second best trait.  Nonsense is my first, of course. 

Admin, I apologize. Folks, it is not the administrators' fault that some people are causing problems over copyrighted photos. A lot of this is fake: people collect photos around the web, put them on a single site, and announce that you have to pay royalties to use them. But someone really did threaten legal action and the admins are properly carrying out their duties when they forbid copyrighted photos.IMG_4183IMG_9014mceclip16wh%253B

As you can tell from my screen name I'm an N&W fan. But I do have a smattering of PRR models. My favorite is the 3rd Rail brass 6200 Turbine. I am continually amused by octogenarians who confuse my 30" long scale brass engine with a Lionel 671. 

I've long said that you could put the PRR keystone logo on a soup can, and it would sell.

Don't forget back in the day that the Pennsy own 40% of the N&W.  But then in 1998 the NS acquired almost all of what once was the Pennsy.

My grandfather and father both retired from the N&W. I'm aware of the Pennsy connection. IMHO the best part of that is the Pennsy left the N&W alone. 

Gilly but I think both railroads learned alot from each other especially at the end of the steam era when both tried to hang on to steam. I heard once that the PRR even tested the J for a while.
