Leroof...good to hear from you.  Work..that's a four letter word.  You will soon find time for PW activity.

I dug an old MARX 490 & slope back tender out of the junque box, Lubed it up, put it on the big Fastrack oval under the tree, hung a handful of old and abused 8-wheel plastic delux cars on the drawbar, threw up the throttle on my son's CW-80, and watched an Old School train chase its tail for a good, long (and noisy) time.  Brought back memories. 

The heck of it is, if I want to run my TMCC and Legacy trains on the big layout with the Cab 1, I will need to clean all the track, fiddle with the remote, fight with the rollers, and otherwise waste train time.  That process brings back memories, too:  why I got out of HO.

I know I sound like a single chime whistle, here, but that cheap, battered, low-end MARX set runs, which, at the moment, none of my expensive, pampered, newer trains do.  There is a lesson in there somewhere. . . .

Set out my PRR MP-15 to move some REA freight while NYC Plymouth is waiting to move a flat/ gondola combo to the work train.

PRR - one of my favorites. Starting to like REA as well. And, as an acknowledged NYC fan, like the second pic as well.

This has been conventional week.  My 1956 LV #627 44 ton loco, my childhood train, has been running on the layout.  Also brought out my weaver brass 0-6-0.  The switcher looks a bit funny at anything above scale 20 mph but it is nice to get these off the shelf.  The 44T has that growl I forgot about, nothing like those open frame motors.

 

My first video and my first new train in 50 years.  Please excuse the poor lighting.  A Lionchief+, Southern 4501 arrived last night.  My first new engine in 50 years.  I shall name my railroad the Bald Rock Mountain Railroad, BMR RR.

Same ones I run everyday, Lionchief NYC RS3 and Penn Flyer, plus Toymaker Trolley.

Really want an MTH Ge Evolution with charging lights, but budget is blown, or is it. I am not a fan of adding another control system, but no Lionchief engines with charging lights. Come on Lionel.

MTH CP Holiday Train.  First time I have had a chance to run it.  I just finished the first level of basic bench work on my new layout.  I figured I would stop work on the layout for Christmas and just set up a simple oval to run some trains.

Hey Fendermain, always happening here at the forum, one of my favorite easy access after work activities,  So Nice to see flying Yankee and 2035 with 600 series cars! Looks like a prewar showroom layout!

Thanks for the trackside view. Run'em fast and furious! So many fantastic colors...

Really nice setup you have started here!   Where did you get the beautiful photo/print for the backdrop?

On Track one: a PRR mixed freight headed up by  a trio of geeps.

On track two: Penn Central freight with GG1 power

Track four: a trio of WM geeps rolls past the yet to be completed grade crossing improvements.  Boy, those guys work slow !

  • Thank you C.SAM! This is my first try at a large layout.  I finally have the space and have been thinking about it for the last 4 years.  To answer your question about the backdrop, I purchased it from railroadbackdrops.com.
