    Another addition to the ATSF_Arizona web page.... photo collection of recent entries into NMRA Coast Division, Pacific Coast Region - Show and Tell and Model Contests. Lots of good modeling! :

    Including one from June 06 by some dude born in Arizona and now living in California, apparently some sort of Santa Fe fan:

    While packing away most of my rollingstock today so I can clean the layout, I stored all my MoPac cabooses in a storage siding, thought it would make a good photo for this weeks foto fun.

    Nice Caboose Row

    Nice cabooses, Colonel. Hope we can see some pictures of the freight station and the scenery behind them. That is all new to me. Nice work! :thumbs_up:

    Carl - is that a scenic or tourist line running above the main? Looks good and like lots of fun!

    Thanks Paul and Tim, that's about all of the landscaping that I have completed. I finally finished laying track and will be concentrating on scenery. A lot to do!!!! Will try to get some wide angle shots to show the layout as soon as I can.

    Tim - that upper route is a tourist scenic railway as well as a line to serve a gravel pit that will keep my shay busy, some day.

    Well I finally got the Cement Distributor area to a point where I can run trains and take photos. There is still a lot of trees and other scenery features to add but the RK&M’s first industry has rail service. And here is the first delivery passing by.

    Got up to the train room yestarday and ran a couple of trains around for the first time since mid March. Been checking out weekend update every week to keep tabs on everyone, great stuff as usual.
    Also put a decoder in another one of my MEC-GP-38's. Took some photos of my new MEC-RS-11's and Evans gons also. Unfortuneatly I could not upload them due to file size. I took them at 640 x 480 and set the camera at poorest qaulity and still no luck. I then resized them and still to big, I'll keep fooling around with them.
    Here's a link to where they are, they are in the MEC folder.
