Bruce - Love your Conrail stuff. That is one nice looking switcher.

These guys arrived today. They are Atlas RS-3's. This should complete my roster of Lehigh & Hudson River locos. I have been trying to find L&HR RS-3's for a couple of years and I stumbled one these the other day on Ebay. One is unnumbered so I will need to add the numbers at some point.

Deano - Great photo. You can really see the detail and rust. Is that unit on display?

I got a short run by done for this weekend. I brought out my Atlas AMTRAK AEM-7 to pull my Bachmann Amfleet coaches before I put them away.

Tom,
Thanks, you do have quite a locomotive roster.

Deano,
The ladder is used for testing the grains/corn for dryness that are brought in by the farmers.   Is this one of your tags? Icon_e_surprised  It was on an ex Ann Arbor covered hopper.

Hi Charlie---like I said previously ''Pennsy" certainly had a very diverse fleet of motive power and the Aerotrain tops the list---it must have made quite a scene next to a steam locomotive.The Canadian National was very conservative by comparison and streamlining was almost non-existent---U4A Northern #6400 was an exception.
