    Brought out my new Atlas B&O RS-1 locos. They still need to be weathered but they look mighty fine passing Castle Rock station.

    Incredible weathering! It's like sitting at a crossing and watching a real train roll by! [​IMG]

    The weathering is 100%. It turns into 200% perfect when he has the camera angled upwards to make the shots. I have looked hard and long on my existing layout and there is not one place where I can do that. When I plan the expansion, you can be sure there will be a few.

    I have been busy moving and re-assembling an HO layout donated to the Rosenberg Railroad Museum. Here is a shot taken before I cut it up to move it.

    It is now back together and I left it with five different trains running Friday night. We will see what a weekend of running by the museum docents has left on the tracks. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    I presume that "road" is where it comes apart? Was it always built to be moved or did you have to hack into it?

    Yeah, that was an easy break there. The bench work was somewhat modular and in many places there were pieces of sectional track across the joint. But the scenery, wiring and many tracks still had to be cut. It broke down into a total of seven different bench sections. It took five of us to move them down a stairway to load onto a truck. Here is a link to more photos.

    Tom really like the roll by photos of the whole train, weathering is nice also.

    SW, your welcome to run on the monster if your ever up in NH but you might want to wait a year or so until more track is down.

    I never get tired of seeing Tom's trains roll by- the weathering of the cars and the scenery are top-notch.

    As for that Museum railroad, wonder if some of the local modelers could volumteer as "docents" or whatever to operate the railroad on certain weekends. May keep the layout from looking like one long train wreck [​IMG] Just a suggestion.

    I pulled some summers running the layout in the Frisco Depot Museum in Hugo, OK in 1988 and 1989 during the summer months when the Kiamichi Railroad was running excursion trains for a couple out of Oklahoma City, OK. I had a ball doing so, and since Hugo was a Frisco town back in the day, I "kept it real", as it were, by running Frisco freight trains. I also operated Kiamichi RR diesels from time to time, as well as a BN unit coal train (BN did run trains to the WFEC power plant east of town).

    I'm just throwing out that story as a suggestion for operating that layout the museum got- it looks like a nice one.
