    Recently purchased and painted GP40-2W leads the way of this heavy K&E freight destined for Kentville. Interesting set of power too, following the leader, is a WMRC GP38-3, K&E GP10, GP40-2W, SW14, and a GP38-3.

    I'm a fan of the wide-cab! It wears that scheme well.

    Thanks Max,
    Ian Dodd gets the major part of the credit as I simply used his Iowa Northern Railway set as the base, changed the maroon to VTR Red, and relettered it to K&E. Now I am curious how the WMRC and maybe LVRC paint will look.

    The Thatcher Brook Log Job: Part 1

    After a viscous wind storm last week that sidelined the entire railroad, we're back up and running after dealing with the damage. On this chilly morning, we find all three SW1000RSm locomotives in Thatcher Yard waiting to run up to East Hill and East Calais. Usually we run two of these, allowing for the third to be worked on, but we have 19 cars to take up that 2.5% grade, and even more to take down!



    Cruising through the countryside.



    Up at East Calais Camp. Here we'll set out the empties in the yard and continue up to East Hill Camp. We'll deal with switching chores on the way down.



    There's always something... Grab your chainsaws lads!



    After clearing the tree and getting back underway, we're up at East Hill, backing down the switchbacks to the camp.



    Coming into the yard. After some switching and coffee we'll begin the trek back down to East Calais Camp.



    To be continued...

    Thank you guys!! Here's Part 2:

    Coming down from the switchbacks...



    Rolling over the lesser known of the two covered bridges on the Thatcher Brook. This is one of the most inaccessible places on the whole railroad. Enjoy the 5 mile hike in!



    Switching out East Calais Camp. This was fun...



    Going around a nice sweeping horseshoe curve. In this shot, we can see the entirety of the train. After switching East Calais Camp, we're coming down the hill with 26 loads. We definitely needed all 3 engines for this run.



    Cruising past a nice country home.



    And we're home in Thatcher Yard! Here we'll drop the train and bring the engines back to the shops. The interchange run is going to have fun tomorrow. They have these 26 loads plus the outbound local traffic. Normally we don't have this much logging traffic, but Winter is quickly approaching and the loggers are trying to make the most of the rapidly vanishing time they have left in the season. Once the first significant snowfall happens, they're done until Spring.
