Mike …It’s nice to see you here , as well as the almost forgotten Aristo site…
Thank you Sean. Had some derailments from chunks of ice while I was taking pictures. Happy to say it was nice an warm yesterday so my mainline track is perfectly clear now.
I’ll try to clear the line soon …it is getting warmer… I just need some time …
I wonder what I’ll find under all that snow … we did have a lot of wind a couple of days before the snow…
I spent some time clearing one of the lines …
Charlie brown then sent out a cleanup crew…
The line is now open once again .
That’s a fine looking locomotive Sean.
It was nice and warm this weekend. The snow is melting fast.
Here are a few more photos from the last few weeks to end out winter. 3 more days till spring
My newest live steam. An Accucraft Legend. After getting work done to it, tune up, new wheel bushings, stack, headlight and cow catcher.
Beautiful pictures everybody!
Shawn, your neat cowcatcher reminds me a Mark Twain comment: “I told the conductor to take the cowcatcher off the front of the train and put it on the back, 'cos at the rate we were moving we weren’t catching up to any cows, but there was nothing to prevent them from climbing aboard at the rear.”
edit: Twain spelled better than I do!
Oldest Daughter offers “Sunset Over the Triple O”:
OK, the trains are offstage to the bottom of the picture, but this explains why I engage in this hobby at the tail end of the logistics stream!
Spring is coming, folks, but, in the meantime know we admired your photos!
very pretty, God’s country
@Bill: Yep. Glad Uncle Sam left me ashore here!
Well, it’s Spring around here, but you can’t really tell the difference in Florida. It did get cool with a strong N wind this week, so we ain’t lying on the beach.
No, we’re running trains on Jack’s Calusa Creek. Here’s his MTH GG1. (Note the billboard, which has been there almost 8 years.)
I got out my Stanley, newly arrived from the UK. Live steam, but so “well used” that it rolls down the slightest gradient until you get some steam up.
A few loads made it chuff a little harder.
Nice! I love your tram. We have LGB’s Fueriger Elias and the old boy is a family and fan favorite…even when he pulls D&RGW rolling stock! If we ever do a live steam plunge, I sense a tram.
