      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.

      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?  

      https://youtu.be/u4g5-VOt4qI?t=11

      Also... love the Amtrak night run.  My kind of thing running at night.

      Pap,

       They are USA Geep 38's that I whored up a bit back in the day 

       

       

       

       

       

       

      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. 

       

      Sorry for the video Shawn as you "post" "Clearly" states pictures

      Ouch!  Looks like whatever the source, it knocked over the covered section which dragged the track with it. Well, at least the Hudson looks good!

      much appreciated Joe.  despite being in the younger half of the demographic, I am clearly technically challenged.
