IT's TEAM TRACK TUESDAY!!! 1-29-19 EDITION

It's TEAM TRACK TUESDAY January 29, 2019 FINAL WEEKLY EDITION!   Sorry to be late with this thread today, however, sometimes work beckons all my attention.  

After nearly 2 and one half years of  the weekly TEAM TRACK TUESDAY thread, the challenge to create new team track material each week has become too great for me.   My ability to come up with new scenes has been pretty much exhausted. Whew!!  So with that, I think its time for TTT to come to a close.  As they say in show biz " shows open and shows close".  Please read on.

 I've totally enjoyed viewing scenes by all those who have contributed over the time TTT has run!    Members of the OGR Forum are a immensely talented and creative bunch of folks and many of you have made some outstandingly stunning creative contributions over the life of this thread.  Mark Dif and Brainsilvermustang have been regulars from almost the start of TTT..... thanks guys!  

When I began this thread it was my intention for members to possibly become inspired by the idea of changing team track scenes on their railroads, thus opening up a new dimension and regular rhythm of creative play for all involved.  A by - product would be that by sharing our scenes each week on TTT we could inspire one another.   I certainly hope this thread has done just that.  

Having said the above, if anyone would like to take over starting the TTT thread each week, please feel free to have at it.  If not, I will continue this thread on a non-regular periodic basis and call it ON THE TEAM TRACK!  ( I'm sure my creative juices will flow again or the Muse will strike or whatever)   

Meanwhile my photo this week is of empty team tracks ... as team tracks sometimes are in the real railroad world.   Please do go ahead and post any photos of team track operations on your railroad.  As always real world railroad  team track photos are welcome too!   Thanks again for stopping by the TEAM TRACK and perhaps I'll see you on the TEAM TRACK sometime in the not so distant future! IMG_0074

Original Post

Trumptrain,

I’m sorry to see your posts go. Tuesday always is a very busy day for me and I only have one finished team track on my layout which is why I couldn’t participate often! I’ve always considered TTT and SS to be original threads before the barrage of “what day is this “ threads! I play in a band that rehearses on Tuesday. We could use a trumpet player to blast out those high notes now that you’ve got more spare time! Anyway, thanks for the weekly threads. I did get a lot of inspiration from yours and the other photos that were posted. Here’s a final photo of my team track! Thanks!

Patrick, Thanks for two and a half years of great stories and pictures.  TTT was a prime example of why many of us got involved with toy trains all those years ago.  A toy and our imaginations would transport us to wherever we wanted to go and transform the world around us into whatever we wanted it to be.  Your posts and all who contributed was truly inspirational.  Alas with no layout I was only able to admire but not contribute.  I'll be looking forward to OTTT.

Thanks for 2 and a half years of creativity Patrick - although I wasn't always able to "stop by" during the week, I appreciated the posts very much.

I do understand the "fatigue" side of this, SWSAT is coming up on four years and it's hard sometimes to get it going every week - even though I've always had help.

Patrick, I would like to sincerely Thank You for all your effort keeping TT going. I can only speak for myself, but , some of the scenes were truly inspiring, and helped me find the effort to scratch build some of the accessories I now have, and enjoy on my layout. Many Thanks, and more Blessings on You and Yours.

Thanks guys for all your kind words!  Remember the team track has not disappeared into the weeds and will still appear as ON THE TEAM TRACK periodically.   

Rich Murnane - it was your creation of  SWSAT that inspired TTT.  Thanks for the inspiration ... and WOW coming up on 4 years with SWSAT is quite a momentous occasion!!  Congratulations!! That anniversary will be a great celebration of switchers for sure!!  I'll see you this you this Saturday riding the switcher!  

NYC Z - Man - your scene shows the classic team track!  I like it very much and I love the B&M boxcar spotted next to the K line unloading ramp!  Very cool!

Coach Joe - thanks for stopping by as always!  I love what you said about toy trains and imagination ... awesome!

Brian - as always you come up with the perfect prototype photo! " refueling" Thanks again for all your weekly contributions to this thread!

RPM Cobra - nice photo!  The arrows coming and going  Most appropriate! 

Clarence - so happy to hear that TTT provided inspiration for you to scratch build accessories! 

Thanks to all the others who commented this week and again thanks to all those who contributed photos and commentary since the start of TTT ....   be it once or once in a while or just by showing up to take a gander at the weekly happenings on the team track.  It was truly all of you who made this thread a great run!   See you all on a team track somewhere down the line!

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

Patrick- this was, and will continue to be, a great thread. I can honestly say that finding this thread was what inspired me to build my Team Track area. It has been fun, but hard to keep up each week. Your creativity, and collection of cars, trucks, people, and "stuff" for the scenes you created each week is amazing.

Keep it up- I'm sure you will get inspired again soon.
Thanks for all you did to keep it going.

Bob
