    That is one of my favorite series of Espee boxcars. FWIW, Inter Mountain made a series of 12 of the same car type. Very nice cars.

    John, I can't wait to get my street looking like yours! Long, long way to go though, still need to finish the buildings, add signs, and especially people and road vehicles. So much to do ......... :rolleyes:

    Good to get inspiration from others pictures, though [​IMG]

    The inspection pit is awesome, John W! And as always, stellar pictures John S - I really like the GP30's.

    Here one - an LA to Oregon stack train crossing Tehachapi Creek on it's way downhill to a crew change in Bakersfield, after meeting an Eastbound lumber drag at the loop siding (above). A grab shot, taken from the shoulder of Eastbound Highway 58 ;) .

    Very impressive, Dave, and congrats on #500!

    My submission is both model and real this time.
    First, the real:
    A pair of BRAND-SPANKIN'-NEW UP C45ACCTE (GEVO) roll west thru Cheyenne with stacks, and the consist wasn't spoiled with the SD70M, since it too was presentable!

    [​IMG]

    Second, not the greatest pic, but a progress shot of a pair of CN Dash-9s I'm doing:

    Hey, Flash, would those be the same class as one I have; #651604 with the large HYDRA-CUSION on the left side of the door?
    Mr Sing, I always look forward to your photos!
    Great stuff by everyone as usual... I love this thread!

That is correct for my 651xxx series, but mine have a sliding door instead of a plug door. Minor discrepancy. Also I have some double [edit] sliding doors, too. Those are 652xxx series. All Inter Mountain.

    Massive Chemical Train Wreck Near Lowell

    Lowell, MA, March 19, 1957--The first 24 cars of a Pennsylvanian RR freight train derailed and pancaked approaching a bridge over the Merrimack River at about 1 PM today. At this time there appears to be no fatalities. The 60-car freight was carrying a variety of chemicals, many of them deemed as hazardous. Authorities say they have not determined if any of the cars are leaking, so they have not ordered an evacuation of nearby residences or businesses.

    The derailed cars block both the north and south mains between Boston and Portsmouth, and struck two engines on a siding, tipping one on its side. Pennsylvania RR officials said that they hoped to open at least one of the main lines before midnight. At this time, passengers on through trains are being bused between the two cities.

    Added: 16:33 EST

    Railroad officials say that the train, traveling at about 35 miles per hour, appears to have derailed on a new guardrail designed to protect the bridge. "I guess it did its job," said district supervisor Pete Nolan. "Except it was supposed to re-rail bad cars, not derail them. It's back to the drawing board."

    Added: 17:02 EST
