Happy Holidays everyone! And a somber Pearl Harbor day as well.  Welcome to our weekly weekend love affair with little engines that do big things!!

This week I have two switchers around the tree, the Christmas lionel chief switcher,  and a K-line Plymouth that my wife got me for Christmas many years ago.

As usual, there's a few simple rules for Switcher Saturday:

1.This threads welcome switchers of all sizes and sources, such as 12" to the foot, live steam, HONGZ and of course 3 rail O gauge.  If it's related to switchers (model switchers, prototypes, critters, switching yards, switching layouts) - we want to see it! Videos, Pics, Stories (true or fictional), poems, whatever! 

2. If you miss the post on Saturday? NO BIG DEAL, just keep posting pictures of your favorites until the next #SwitcherSaturday. If you missed last weekend's post - check it out here.

3. Keep it friendly - we want this to be fun. (we haven't had any real problems with grumpy trolls, I'd like to keep it that way)

4. In regards to compliance with the letter and spirit of the OGR tos, this post is in the photo album section as the subject is switchers and small motive power.  Three rail O is the common medium but anything from prototype through Hongz, grand scales, live steam etc is welcome, as long you took the photo yourself or have permission to post it.  Feel free to post a link to something cool.

Happy SWSAT, good people! I'll start off with repeats because on these snowy gray December days we all can use some bright sunny pictures:

(I know, not a switcher but it is bright&sunny plus a switcher did set that car out on that siding.)  That crane is my only PW piece and it loads a Gon with scrap steel every third turn.

A number of great photos this Saturday--thanks for sharing. I don’t remember the Southern Pacific as being a particularly colorful railroad. Dingy is the word that comes to mind. Still, any piece of equipment related to the famous Daylight trains was a cut-above.

Running a 1:1 by remote must be cool. Don't know how you manage the 5-finger crane though

Does it have PS-3 or legacy

Haven't run it myself.   I understand the hardest part of the training is learning not to run after it once it starts moving!

May God Bless us all.

Very nice Christmas trees and railroad crossing and walk way, Fendermain.  Did you use Popsicle sticks that you cut and stained or painted? Arnold

Nice to hear from you Arnold and thank you.  The walkway and even the dump bin next to the station are made from leftover stained flooring wood from my daughter's doll house.  The wooden dump bin replaces the plastic one made by Lionel. Fendermain

Peter - love that old balloon stack steam locomotive with the RS as a helper.
