#SwitcherSaturday Time!!!!

 

Lots of us out there love switchers (shifters, docksiders, yard goats, etc.), so lets keep #SwitcherSaturday (a.k.a. SWSAT) rolling!

 

Last week we had a homework assignment, which some folks did better than others! The funny part is that I fall into the "not as good as others" group I think! Take a peek here!

Today at the Murnane house we a B&O Plymouth on switching duty, shifting around a C&O caboose (B&O/C&O is like tomatoe/tomato, right?)!

I couldn't find a good "real" picture of a B&O Plymouth, but I found this "real" picture of a plymouth that has similar lamps and features (website: blackdiamondhistory.wordpress.com).

Original Post
Central Railroad of New Jersey Baldwin VO1000 1062 is seen here with the Jersey City service train. The 1062 was delivered to the CNJ in April 1944. It and sister unit 1043 were the only CNJ VO1000s to feature curved trim on the battery box cover and at the corners of the steps as Baldwin eliminated this styling in favor of simplified angles before the balance of the CNJ VO1000s were built. The 1062 is pictured in the paint scheme which debuted on switchers in 1950. The locomotive was built by Weaver and the box car in service train livery is an Atlas model.

Hi Bob (CNJ 3676):  I think you are starting to make me a fan of New Jersey!

 

Rusty:  Sometimes it's actually hard to be clever every week, isn't it?  I love the 44 tonner picture!

 

Mike:  Your construction zone looks awesome and your #31 seems like it's doing a great job "taking care of business!".

 

Tom (MNCW):  I promise to get back to steam next week!  

 

Have a great Saturday guys!

Yay! Another SW Sat has rolled around!

Great pictures already so far. Since I moved three months ago I have lost my tiny layout. I am in a bit of layout withdrawal Soon I hope to start a new one. So as of now I have no pictures of my own switchers so I am posting prototype pictures.

 

This week I am posting pics of a pair of Amtrak GE 80 Tonner switchers. I think they look realy sharp in the current paint scheme. It is interesting to spot the few differences (like the number fonts) between the pair.

Rich, not pick to pick nits but the caboose in your first post is Western Maryland not C&O.

I do love those K-Line Plymouths. I still think they are really cool small units with great detail for the $$.

 

Not a switcher but an image of one of the cars from the Merci Train. A 50 some car train donated a car to each state and after WW2 from a grateful France seemed appropriate for today.

 

Here is Maine's car from the Merci Train Website.

Thanks.  These guys have been working on this downtown area for about 6 or 7 years now! Nothing ever gets done.  (I think they might work for NJDOT)  I think they're spending half their time in that McDonald's behind them!  

 

Love this thread.  Look forward to seeing it every Sat.

That American Flyer 0-6-0 has very good lines.  Good thing it is not mine; it would get 2-railed in a heartbeat, with footplates.  Probably destroy its antique value, but not its charm.

Found this brass custom painted Weaver tender today at Allentown for $50.00...its a orphan with no loco.Its supposed to have USRA 0-6-0 in front of it.I bought for maybe a future project.When I took the shell off I saw there was still a directional unit in it so I took a chance and hooked it to a old Williams B6 that I haven't used in over twenty years and it ran !!! Its a mish mosh but it works !
