This is my friend's HO switching layout. It measures 2 X 7 feet and includes a small yard, three customer sidings, a team track and a run around. The crew starts the day with a drill slip and, despite the railroad's compact size, it can still take a few hours before we're finished with our work. The layout packs a lot of fun in a small space. The locomotive is my Bachmann GE 70 tonner custom painted and detailed for the Rahway Valley Railroad.

same here. over the years the wife has said to me, "why don't you do scenery like we see at the big layouts?" well, I like the look of the green wood, reminds me of a '50s layout. Plus there are times when I head downstairs just to run trains, and I end up pulling up track, or moving the Plasticville buildings around.

Saving Tinplate One Piece at a Time

Yay! Sw Sat! 

 

A little late late for me but better than never right.

 

This weekend I'm posting images of the Alco HH (or high hood) series of Switchers that predate WW2. The grouping was HH600, HH660 and HH1000. Not too many were made under 200 total before the war and production stopped. 

 

Amazingly considering thier age a few are still around running in small industrial use as well as a few in preservation.

 

The images without the hoods on I find fascinating.

 

These have yet to be made in 3rail and only in the last few years been made in HO.
