Hey Frank,
Is that a Bowser T-1?

 
Hi petey. The T1 is a Broadway Limited model. A first run so it wasn't so expensive. I have to keep the sound shut down low because of all the noise it makes. it does run well. I run it on straight DC.

Oh, what a nice sight of your old layout.  
 
I do see we share a common car.  I have that same NH box car on my layout right now.  It's part of one test train.

Now the the Christmas season is over the old time locos and cars have been put away and the Pennsylvania diesels have returned to the frankford roundhouse.  
* On the main line, inside track, at this time I have a pair of Pennsy diesels front ending a all , AHM 40' box car train. It has 30 cars and a caboose, all are different, no doubles. The power provided by a RSD4, and a RS1. Both Atlas engines.
* On the outside track is a 23 car train, all reefers, Varney and a few life like, being pulled by a Athearn GP30 and GP9.  
* I make a few movies of them running and post them someplace, with a link here.
* The photo is of the Frankford roundhouse area. Loaded with Pennsy diesels.
* The photo is posted larger so by clicking on it you can see it better.

Evening Gents:
 
I am pleased to inform you that the Anthracite Division of the Bankrupt Lines is one step closer to becoming operational.  
 
All major trackwork and wiring has been completed.  Ballasting is in progress in some areas, while some minor track adjustments remain to be made.  It seems that some of the test trains are indicating some places where problems exist-and darn those Alco PAs for finding them!  Some additional scenery has also been completed.
 
As always, a model railroad is never truly completed, but we do try.  New photos will follow as soon as I get this new computer to work with my image handling software.  They aren't talking to each other yet, and I fear the solution will to be to purchase new software.  Oh well.

I have cleaned up the layout putting everything but my Gilbert trains away. I put out 2 Marx NYC F3a's and 2 Lionel GP7's also a Reading small 0-4-0t just to have power to pull my Reading caboose.  My B&O EM1 is still on the layout to. I did this just for some photos.  
* Here is my 8 stall round house with 7 stalls occupied by Gilbert PRR B6 locomotives. The 0-4-0t to the right is one of my Silvine teakettles, done for the Reading. You can also see lower center left 2 more B6 locos nosed out.

Petey ; Your joking, right ?
The manufactures names are just a coincidence. Gilbert, Marx, and Lionel were all suppliers of HO scale model trains.

Funny you should bring that up, most people don't believe that I have a HO Lionel U18B!

Frank,  
I had Marx when they produced a 027 lithographed line.  One doesn't automatically think of Marx, Gilbert, and Lionel in terms of their HO efforts.
