      Usually when heading to Ken's most  go through Blue Ball then Bird in Hand that heads south to Intercourse and finally Paradise. Oh wait we were headed to Kens.......Been there done that!

      From my neck of the woods, you pass through Virginville first.

      They say admitting the problem is the first...

      But now everybody knows and still the collection grows!

      Honestly, if you properly weathered them Ric the fuel and water tanks which are backwards along with the air lines that are incorrect might make it a bit more prototypical?  I honestly think someone may have photoshopped a brass engineer's door handle in there,their, they're as it doesn't,does not,don't look like the handle on the LGB cabs.

      The brass door handles stay constantly polished by extensive use.  These engines are put through their paces often and stay well used.  Tanks are marked correctly.  They don't overheat and they wouldn't run on water.

      It's all in the pictures Ric as they are twins! I do need to add a few more things and I also reversed all the wiring just to be (I AM) a peckerhead. The traffic cones were a gift from Gary Buchanan as he thought they would make a good exhaust stack. However I thought they were needed for the road crossing on the "Timesaver" as there are not any crossing bucks behind the freight depot.  The engineer needs to get out of the cab and lay down the cones before crossing but the engineer you gave me is missing a leg as you cut it off to fit in M9!

       

      Can I play with madness for a bit and you signed the contract !

       

       

       

      Game ON !

       

       

       

      The football shall be passed this weekend "with truck mounted couplers that are not to the proper scale". Perhaps someone can figure out how to body mount them properly for proper operational qualities. Nothing glued only pressed, pinned and "screwed"  if one gathers to re-read from page 1 as recommended. Debating whether to add another stripper pole for the TWIN.

      John has a long mustache , repeat John has a long mustache! Tired of Alpha Charlie from the experts even though Rooster wears chest candy within the Large Scale community.

       

       

      Rooster goes shallow

      Wondering where the post counts went?

      So since you're not seeing those (or maybe it's only me who can't see it?), I just helped your thank count get closer to 2k as a sort of consolation prize.

      Correct. Don't think we ever said that it was in Lancaster County. Next door in Berks County on my old route to York, North of Reading.
