N Tour Car Pictures
That's one big layout....And the use of mirrors doubles its apparent size..!! Are the operators (or "or") also reflected..?? Goldth
There's so much going on I had a hard time picking Ol' Blue out .... Eek

It is a really cool illusion, especially in the rear yard (Where the GG-1s are above). The mirrors are "low" so you never see who is operating the trains on "the other side" of the mirrors. Eek Eek

Mirrors or not, that is an impressive layout. It gives me an idea though. If I add mirrors to what I have now, maybe I won't feel as guilty for not finishing the other half of my layout right away, eh? :oops: 35 357

Ok, A little late(ok Alot) but the car has made a stop on the Eastern Hills & Southern. Below you will see it being switched onto the team track at Mine #16. I must apolagize as I have been gone most of the summer with work, So this got put on a back burner. So please forgive my creating a delay in continuing this tour, It was not my intention when I signed up to be a stop on the tour. :?

Looks right at home there!
I like the paint scheme on your loco, very similar to the SM & CH BL20-2's.

This, and the HO tour car, are the only things I have ever built that have traveled as many miles as these cars have (even the trailer I built for the modules hasn't got as many miles on it, and it's been "there and back again" for over twenty years). It has really been a pleasure to see where they have gone, and been.

OK It's Wednesday Sept. 21st 2011.....12:51 AM ( 00:51 )
I just got home, have been out all day, and the tour car was waiting for me with all the "junkmail" Eek Eek

I have to charge up the camera batteries ( after some sleep, it takes a while, and I don't leave that process unattended.....
Fire Hazard ).
I'll get pictures posted ASAP.
That looks like the original "priority mail" box that it was sent out with !! 2285_
Looks like the manifest is complete, and ready to accompany the car on it's final trip to the winning bidder.

With everything else going on, I almost forgot to get the "next to last destination pictures posted".
