    Yes Ken, we run with cabooses for AW/MC trains, but later era (slightly) CRRC trains run without.

    Neat stuff Alan, like the boxcar sitting on the ground there, gives me an idea too.

    Thanks Tom. I need to heavily weather the boxcar and truck trailer and add a lot of detail in the area.

    They are by Peco to match their US style code 83 track. The only ones readily available this side of the pond. :)

    I really need to get them painted/weathered!

    Very nice Alan! I like the way you allow your railfans to get up close to the action! Great pictures!

    Yeah, the AW was very relaxed back in the 70's and 80's ;)

    As my old friends down in Texas would say, that FM diesel looks rode-hard-and-put-up-wet. Nicely done!
