      That will teach the dismal to try to pass a steam loco!

      Looks like someone forgot to set the crossover switch back to the main.

      Well how bad is the damage??? It couldn’t have been good , unless there were pillows below the track

      will you be selling a USA Trains SD-70 UP Katy heritage unit with some “wear” soon?

      Missed the "Mad Max Road Warrior"  style steam driven, side-mounted battering rams on that Ruby!

      Eric,

      They did not have side-mounted battering rams, the Ruby driver just cleared the condensate from the cylinders and blew that diesel away.

      We once thought about putting safety nets around the modules.

      One of my very expensive passenger cars hit the concrete floor once.
