              Chris, I haven't ran that route in years, have you been updating that line or is that as is? Looks good!

              Marshall, weekend has been good, hopefully the same for you. Can't go wrong with the Black Butte Sub and SP!

              Hourglass Racks? Time to go spend and post some pictures later!

                    It looks good!


                    EMR job 120 rolling along out of Brownville with new power leading the way, and about 5 or 6 new "HourGlass" autoracks mixed in the front portion of the train, as the sun sets behind the mountains.



                    Missed the power, but getting a glimpse at one of the new hourglass autoracks as it passes by a not so impressed moose. Better get out of there quick before he gets too close for comfort!



                    Passing through Lakeview Plantation along Scoodic Lake, and soon to cross the dragging equipment detector with a little over 9,000 feet trailing behind them. They will have to make the meet at Kirby, as the westbound 121 will be 8500 feet, roughly 600 feet too long for a Bancroft meet.

                        SD75I modified into SD70I. The SD70I came with smaller nose noodle and no walkway bulge on engineers side that the SD75I had because the SD75 had the larger alternator.

                            I set this shot up yesterday, it has become the "load" shot for the 1956 version of the Dominion Atlantic route. A while later I was looking to kill some time and started running the train but when it reached the first switch at the south end of the yard everything started bunching up. I thought it was a problem with the powered RDC, so I converted a copy to a coach. Still had the same problem so after some investigation it turned out to be a track problem and not the RDC!

                              Been a while since I've had anything I'd be uploading to the library, but that'll be changing soon. Testing out some C44ACCTEs on a 50 car loaded coal drag. Motors are all-new models, cars are SLI/TS repaints.
