Some Lionel Alco Pa's (one of my favorite diesels) including the seldom seen D&RG Bumble-Bee version. I have since happened upon the B unit for these by chance and was the only bidder for it awhile back!

Finally found the powered B unit for these so they can easily pull 8 K-Line aluminum cars.IMG_0504

Happy Friday!!!

Santa came early for me this week :) Picked up a restored 2332 & a trio of LTI Madison cars. That original horn on the 2332 leaves a lot to be desired. Even w/ the single motor, this engine has some pep.

Billy, K-Line did make both the "Salisbury" 1755 and the Asheville engines and a four car (NCDOT) passenger set.

Ron, who manufactured that Decapod? It is really nice.

It is from MTH's second run of this engine with the short tender.  I normally say what the model is in my posts but forgot here.  I sold the boxcar many years ago and forgot what make it was (the phase 2 scheme was too new for my layout's era).

I have the #4557 short tender issue from MTH.  I had operational issues with my engine until I had ERR installed with reed switch and magnets to get 4 chuffs. It's one of my favorites.  I especially like watching them horseshoe curve youtube with double headed Decapods and sometimes as a helper at the end of a train. 20171215_232434

This tank model is sitting on my desk at work now until I present it to the customer. I tried to capture the look of rusting steel before painting.

Excellent weathering. Not to heavy, but showing what weather can do to an exposed storage tank. Curious what this tank would hold as contents being grey? Usually the companies I worked with had Diesel Green, Gasoline and Aviation Fuel White, Bunker black, and grey was reserved for water, boiler feed water.

Again, great job.

went to Oglebay Park in Wheeling last night to see their light display and the train layout. This first time in over 20 years I can say it was a huge disappointment. It took almost three hours to drive the three miles from the Interstate exit to the park. Then when I was paying to get in, since it was so late, I asked the hours of the train layout. The lady said "you'll be disappointed, we had some vandalism, someone knocked several trains off the layout,and we are having trouble finding someone to fix them.

PTDC0026

hate to say it but it seems this layout is on a downward trend.

My wife & I visited some Train Gardens today - a Christmas tradition in Baltimore. 

These three shots were night scene at Wise Avenue Fire Station in Dundalk.  They slowly brought down the house lights and turned on black lights for an awesome effect. 

Firemen asked for $1 per adult donation.  Best two bucks I have spent all year!

It's not often that I get to actually run my trains these days so a little time at the Paradise and Pacific was quite welcome and relaxing.  The Williams GS4 runs like clockwork, especially once I lubed the valve gear.  Sometimes simple is just nice.
