Hello fellow flanged wheel enthusiasts - Welcome to the second edition of Switcher Saturday - Mark II.
This is a recurring weekend thread dedicated to the little loco's that make big things happen. As with the original thread, if you prefer yard goats, docksiders, critters and local switchers over Big Boys, Alleghenys and Dash 9 diesels, you've found the right place.
If you missed lasted week's thread, which was both a kick off and tribute to the originator, Rich Murnane, you can find it here.
To start things off really small and in the critter category, here’s on of the smaller track mobiles you’ll ever see. The road wheels and rail wheels are 90 degrees apart!
And on the 3 rail front, we have a gp-4.5, pressed into service to move some Steeler rolling stock. The yard master heard a rumor that the engineer was Browns fan, so he “ accidentally” assigned the smallest motive power he could find!
A few simple rules for Switcher Saturday:
1. 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
3. Keep it friendly - we want this to be fun. (we haven't had any 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.
