Go Jersey! Great line up. It reminds me of the line ups at the Meadows yard engine tracks in S.Kearny back in the late 1970's.
 
E33's, E44's and plenty of GG1's.

OK Frank, you have set the table.  These are mostly English.  We tend to say 'British', when we are referring to England.
 
Anyway,you force to me to show my Mallard.  I'll have to set it up, take the pic and post.

Frank,
NICE shot of the Mallards around the turntable and roundhouse.....
 
Speaking of that, what company made your round house? I have multiple parts to the SAME roundhouse, with no instructions and I can't seem to figure out who made it! I want to say its Heljan, but, I'm not sure!

Hi John ! Heljan is correct. It may even still be made. My son Steve uses the same roundhouse but has refinished it to give a different look.

Frank,
Yeah, I plan to re-do the one I have as well....15 stalls! (I think, unless, I find more 3 unit sections) BUT, I plan to try to see of the 2 roundhouses I have, which one, has the most stalls to it, and in the best of shape (a few sections were gotten all ready assembled) so....As I have the Walthers Roundhouse as well as this one! I had thought this one was Heljan, but was not completely sure of it.....And I do believe your right, it is still being made!
 
I can say, I do need to find a few doors to the sections I have that are missing but...that might end up determining the number of stalls I have on mine!

Well John cant wait to see it. It should be nice. Mine I left spaces open to allow for locomotives to be photographed. If have seen engine areas that covered both extremes. One with every available tracks had a round house stall. The other with all open storage tracks. I like a mixture of open and covered. I have seen ones where the roofs were left off, exposing the interior to show what locomotives were in house. It is all personal preference. So post some pictures when done.

Hello Frank,

Frank,
Sadly, I have to say, that's not a poor picture!!!!! Why do you say its poor anyway? I'm trying to see your point of view in this case!!!! Looks GREAT with the huge station behind the whole Pennsy set up coupled to the Electric unit.....
 
EDIT:
I noticed something, those Gilbert loco's, would you happen to have a spare trailing truck that belonged to a Mantua OR Gilbert 4-6-4? I need that -4 truck if you can spare one and what might you want for it?
 
PM me here or over on the TYCO forums! Or e-mail me!
