    Oops! A bulldozer by the depot. In real life, that often meant the depot was about to be demolished. Are you going to remove this one? :)

    Everything becomes secondary, when the Cab Forward starts its engine.......

    The three modules of the Old Port Shop are now connected (also electronically) and the trains started riding.

    But this is not the end of our activities!

    Now come the "special add-on" pieces. How about this one?

    And for me, this means now "ACTION"!!!!!!

    Model Railroading is FUN.

    Excellent images, as all have opined. These were oil burners, and unless the fireman was not doing his job, it really should not have belched this much smoke. But all in all a great modeling scene!

    Hi Tom,

    Appreciate your comment, but take a closer look at the condition of the Cab Forward.
    These were her last miles before restoration!!

    [​IMG]

    A few miles later, around the corner of the small yard, she is placed at the OLD PORT SHOP for her restoration, together with another hero of the steam hey days.

    Best,
