    Thanks for opening Russel!

    Here is a Kato SD45 that I added detail parts to such as MU hoses, Signal Control Box, Lift Rings, Marker Lights, Sinclair Antenna. Also in locating the Signal Control Box in front of the Engineer, I filled the holes of the grabs on that side and drilled new ones on the fireman's side. Painted with Scalecoat II Black paint and lettered with Microscale's PC Set and Diesel Detailing Set.

    Looks like Black Friday with that steamer and the Penn Central, so I'll offer my RSD-15 in PW&NJ's' black yard switcher paint scheme, along with the 59-tonner in grungy blue.

    I'm busy with benchwork and turnout building. But I can run some trains too.
    Here's train No. 53 on it's way from Fiddletown to Wolf Creek, approaching Salina.

    Been a while since I submitted any photos - I've been working on some home renovation projects so railroad time has been limited for the past several months. I finally finished the first section of Frostbite Falls, my winter scenery section. Here's a few pics....

    Jim, Thanks for the compliment. Yes, that crossbuck.... it was actually hit just before the photo was taken by the oversize load being carried through the area - a giant camera! The photo crew didn't pick that up until they got back to the darkroom and developed the film.

    George, I had to look twice at your first photo. Wow...please accept my compliments. You have that wintry look down pat. Very nice indeed!

    Well, it finally arrived. We heard about a Canadian Pacific excursion headed by a large T1c 2-10-4 Selkirk coming to Seneca Falls. After lengthy negotiations and some exchange of a few coins (do I hear a horse choking!?), the powers that be finally allowed the monster to come through Seneca Sub. Here it is, caught on my favourite spot:
