Moose Meadows #5 is back on the build tables again.  Work progresses in both Michigan and Florida!
 
Took awhile to heal and get mentally back in the shop, but i wanted to show some of the beginning pattern trials for the cast aluminum engine.  I started this exersize in frustration with the transmission housing.  

Great to see you back!!

The 2099 had derailed at the intersection of Tillicum Rd and the TCH. A shoofly was built to allow other freights to get by while the re-railing and track repair were going on.
On this snowy day, the 2104 was leading it's freight extra past the woebegone 2099, while many onlookers enjoyed the spectacle.

So let's kick this thread up after a few years of being idle.  I've been on Railfan.net for few years now.  I'm 52 and live in northern NJ.  I was born, and grew up, in Sayre, PA so it's no surprise that the LV is one of my favorite railroads.  I also am a fan of the Erie Lackawanna and the Delaware & Hudson.  I model the LV, EL, D&H, and NYS&W in N-scale.

What I'm showing isn't ready for prime time, but I have always shown my work warts and all.  Below is how the cylinder stack is coming along.

It took me a while to bag an SD40-2 this year, but I finally caught one leading a hefty local freight. Number 3511 leads NS H42 west through the countryside:
