Nice photo

Some beautiful shots… (

Great photos TJ. I had to add them to my collection. ( hope to see more, and maybe a video.

Good to see a buffer on those tank cars.

Is your ballast glued in place?


Great shots TJ. You know I will stop by if I’m ever back that way. What are you using for ballast?

Beautiful shots! I had to look twice to make sure this is a model! Awesome work :). Anxious to see more.

BOTH you and Paul have set a very high benchmark!

TJ, that is an impressive area for trains I am jealous!

Can you point out (roughly) where the pictures were taken?

Thanks, Greg
