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!!

January 22, 1957, mile 2.2 Cowichan Subdivision [Photo by Elwood White, collection of Jamie Masters ]
 
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.

Where did the top layer of crossties (or whatever their bridge equivalent is) go between '83 and '88? There are a few stragglers left in that picture, but did the rest of them get pried off by bush partiers and thrown into the canyon over the course of five years?

I'm not sure what happened to all the deck stringers, but this photo of mine shows at least a few more in evidence. Perhaps some salvaging was going on in the time period you mention. Prying up those heavy beasts seems like a lot of work for dips..t partiers.

6 cars northbound for Superior Propane. Returned with 3 cars.

 
This makes me relieved. After Superior Propane in Victoria in 2001 and then the 2014 embargo of Top Shelf in Duncan, I always worry when I hear about an engine going out light and coming back with cars. Especially on the island, you never know if it's the last one.

The aftermath of an extremely brain dead grad party, whose members apparently decided that setting a fire in the middle of the Koksilah River Trestle was a great idea.
Thankfully, the big trestle proved pretty difficult to destroy.

Another Marx 0-4-0 with tender locomotive, is the NYC switcher #20. The rear coupler cover is replaced with one with a pin to connect the tender draw bar to. I have this one and the Santa Fe one. I don't have the  Western Pacific or the New Haven switcher type wit tenders. Still looking for them. I do have the Santa-Fe and NYC switcher types. Because the NYC comes with two different heralds and I have none of the round herald type, it probably comes in both with and without tender. I have neither.

I think it was pretty short. I went through Cambridge Springs on saturday morning and saw the train had gone through. Later in Meadville, I went down to the yard and saw WNYP loco #427 with 3 tank cars behind it. I thought the same thing, gee what a short train. It is better than nothing though. The crossings in Cambridge Springs on Rt 19 and Rt 86 sure do need replaced, they are very rough. I think they did the one by the feed mill, very nice!
