      Spring photo thread

      Even though it hasn't felt like Spring for those of us in the North I guess its time to start the spring photo thread. 

       

      Scratch built Class A on the first day of spring.

      I think spring finally arrived in these parts so, new to the RR, RGS #41 makes it's debut on the railroad.

       

      And since nothing has run on the layout since last fall, I needed to check out the track work for any problems. Needless to say there weren't any.

      Well amen to that.   One can have a railroad that runs flawlessly...but as soon as a visitor shows up, trains start derailing like crazy!

      Great photos guys. 

      Seeing the nice and clean scenes reminds me that my RR is a disaster!

      Great pictures Shawn.  Nothing ran here today as I was busy cleaning up and mulching gardens in other parts of the yard.  Then I had to burn all the tree debris from the two big wind storms in the fire pit. Of course, that required drinking some beer.  I have run an inspection train over the entire mainline and it seems to be OK. I cleaned out all the switches one evening last week so the mainline is ready to run. If the weather holds for Sunday I might get a few pics before I start ripping stuff up for some scenic work I have planned.
