Bruce - very intriguing photo and nicely staged.

Here are a couple of post-PRR GG1's that were acquired recently. Both are Bachmann. The AMTRAK one is DCC with sound. The Penn Central is just DC. I am not a huge fan of the Penn Central loco scheme. However, the GG1 carries it very well. In my opinion best looking Penn Central loco.

Ed - I don't think I have ever seen a FA4 or FB4 before. Nice looking.

Deano - When I used to railfan I always loved the SD40-2's. So this brings back memories.

My Bachmann Lehigh & New England 2-8-0 Consolidation leads a short mixed train by the Water Tower.

About a year ago the owner of the Kiski Junction and Rosebud Mining diversified and bought Iron City Brewery. The brewery fell on hard times in 1977 when I discovered trains and quit drinking for the most part, then in 1984 they lost their best customer when my dad passed away.
here's to the good old days, 1956 and the election is a few months away yet the beer must be delivered.      Charlie

In model railroading, there are between six and two hundred ways of performing a given task.
Most modellers can get two of them to work.

Tom---your Bachmann Consolidation is a real beauty---for anyone starting a steam roster I highly recommend this model.Here's one on the Leetown Division that was modified by Doctor Wayne.

Here's an old photo from about 15 years ago, which shows a train passing through Elfrida...

   

I don't recall taking it, but whoever did must have been lying in the ditch to get this view.
