Here is a old Brass Challenger 4-6-6-4 locomotive. Never posted this loco anywhere else. It is a old single stack D&H pusher. At times it replaced the headend power on long freights to get through the hill country of the D&H.
* It needs some shop time and a refinshing. Most likley soon.

Hello Frank,
The Challenger is my favorite engine.
This is one of mine, I sold last December.

They are nice engines. Out here in the east the D&H and the Clinchfield had single stack challengers. Your first is a Gem UP big Boy. middle one isn't a challenger either but a northern. Still nice. The last is a challenger. A Rio Grand type double stack.  
I just have 2 . one plastic, Rivarossi, Clinchfield, and a brass one, in photo, to be D&H.

Yes, only the last one is a Challenger.
The top one is a Big Boy,  and Northern is a Class S2a, with a closed cab.
Of the three, only the Challenger will run on my layout, and that's putting it though Snap switches!

Very nice, Frank.
By the way, what brand is your turntable?
These are some others of mine:  
3 H8s, a Triplex, and a C&O H5.

Petey:
 
A nice collection of steam-you're in good shape for those long coal drags and pusher service!
 
A question for you-the gray four story building in the background-did you scratchbuild it or is it a kit?

Hello Alan,
What you can almost see, terrible picture quality, is on a 2' X 4' 'transfer' table cart.  That I roll up to the main table to run the trains onto that table.
 
The building is a plastic kit, a hotel with two jutting wings, with a main entrance between.  I believe it is the 'M T Arms' kit.  The ground floor is commercial space with window backgrounds.  Because of the lack of depth on the cart, it has been reduced to a 'background' building.  If you want a better picture, let me know.

* the turntable is Heljan as is the roundhouses.
 
** This is a old International Brass box cab type electric locomotive. It is a Japanese prototype,made by Kawai, a TYPE 1-B-B-1. tho much alike to its American counterparts It has a Japanese marking on front ends and sides of " ED161 ". For me it will receive Pennsylvania RR markings unless someone is willing to trade this for a international PRR P5a or O1B made at the same time and released in much larger numbers.

Here is a 1956 HObbyline PRR A5s 0-4-0 locomotive. The same company John English, also made this engine in a all die cast metal version.
* It was named the "Yard Bird".

** This is the John English metal version.  
* HObbyline also made a all plastic model kit version of the Hobbyline A5s. The main body parts were the same as used on the HObbyline powered A5s.

I haven't stop work on the CNJ I4 and 5. Just looking for a little inspiration to keep going. Too many things have gone bad, and at times It becomes a little tuff to keep going. I did pick it up again and here is where I am now on the pair.
