      My more modern recreation of the golden spike photo featuring my locos. Happy 150th!

      Neat pic but the tracks don't seem to go coast to coast!   (Or even from the South to Alaska)

      I still prefer "my version™" - it's Bob, back in 2010...  yeah, we should have had TWO locomotives (while we were apparently NOT impressing Ken...)

      Lol!  Yes, being indoors severely limits the length of track. I don't have a layout so I couldn't take it outdoors.

      Hehe...if you only had Ken in the picture it would have made a difference!  (Yeah, like that would explain almost anything!)

      It was there. The other one is hidden behind Bob's arm. 

      (PS, I'm also available for photo ops, for a slight fee and free shipping......................)

      No one can see your picture Joe. The URL is not correct.

      Ah ha!

      A while back I had to uninstall Google (Chrome) when it got corrupted. When I right clicked on the image and then Show Image, it led me to a sign in with Google.

      I don't have an active link with google so they won't let me see it. Kinda stingy methinks.

      I'll try messing with it tomorrow. Weird that some see it, others don't. What a bummer.
