      The  A/C unit has ditch lites on the deck where the non A/C unit has ditch lites on the pilot only difference. Although I might have a nut to build a 2cyl narrow gauge Shay in the near future.

    • All photos and Video look great.

      Thanks for showing them.

       

      One question for Rooster tho.  

      On first video it showed two Red Diesel Engs.  Got any close up photo of them?

      Jubilee Day was in town yesterday explaining hearing the band in the background.  Also the start of summer as Ric stated in another post.

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

       

      The boy took that video as I was pretty well wrecked at that point and forgot to turn off the cab control car lights.

    • Looks like a nice run before the trestle dismantle...    

    • June 17, 2018 11:22 PM EDT
    • Too bad you loose the trestle, it looks at home in that sea of green.

      Nice.

    • Well, I HAD to get the RR running after 2 years of disarray - and I finished it up this morning.   No problems, at least running in a counter-clockwise direction!   I haven't tried the other ways, as I just ran out of time...

      Here my 10 wheeler runs across the trestle.  This trestle is about to be replaced by a viaduct...at it is rotting away and requires too much maintenance.

      And around the end of the layout...

    • Good to see the tracks open for business.

    • June 17, 2018 7:43 AM EDT
    • 3 years? Darn, I go through model train withdraw after a few weeks.

    • Roos - Looking good. If all you did was clear the track I'd say your construction methods paid off.   Thanks for posting them.

    • June 16, 2018 8:22 PM EDT
    • love it

    • June 16, 2018 7:44 PM EDT
    • It's good to see you running trains again instead of just working on your post count.

    • June 16, 2018 7:31 PM EDT
    • Cool video...  Did Matt send that to you???      

       

      lol, nice run, kiddo....
