These would be a bit out of place on my layout, but I like camelback locomotives. Very nice models Frank. What is your current roster of these?

* A very nice pair of Alco switchers. They make a good set for doubleheading in those yard situations requiring extra power.  
frank

Thanks - They run well together. None of that pushing and pulling that some engines do when in a multiple lash up.

Petey;  Did you ever notice that the Pennsy also has class S engines.  S1 and a S2 classes. They are numbered as 6-8-6 type. The S1 is a rigid frame duplex drive locomotive. In appearance it is a 6-4-4-6. The S2 is a rigid frame single drive locomotive and it appears to be a 6-8-6. Both are S class 6-8-6 type. The Pennsy T1, as you know appears to be a 4-4-4-4.  A Pennsy T class is for the northern 4-8-4 type. The T1 is a T class rigid frame, duplex drive locomotive. Almost all models of this loco are made articulated. Again so they can run on smaller layouts.
 frank

 
Actually, the PRR class for a 4-8-4 is "R",  as in the R1.    T is probably for the duplex drive version.

 how can I get that train  on my thing

 
Well, I really don't understand what you're asking,  but then again, I also posted that picture nine years ago (I was 15 at the time!).    
 
Do you mean the animated train?  I really don't remember how that was done, to be honest.  I'll have to refresh myself.

A big Red Alco - can't beat that. Wouldn't think it would be on a layout in Georgia with the Southern Ry. They are two of my favorites.

* A.C.Gilbert "Despatcher" train set from 1963 get a run on the layout. It is a Erie railroad set with a very different work caboose.  
 frank

 
Being an ERIE fan I like it. I have seen that engine around but I didn't know it was part of a set.

ERIE work caboose- nice. Hard to believe it is almost as old as me.

2102 times 2.  Two separate eras of the 2102 are present.  The Reading 2102 is a NJ International brass model from the 1980's (model era 1972).  The RBM&N 2102 is a Broadway Limited model from a few years ago.  Hopefully you can get past the 2102 pulling a stack train while the other pulls the polar express (my sons idea).

The 2102's cross over each other.  I remember the difficulties that I went through to keep the brass one from shorting.  Lots of time spent in the dark to see where it shorted.  The plastic one, no such work required.

L&NE 304, a Bachman 2-8-0, leads a coal train past the DL&W inspired diesel fueling facility.
 
The 304 was a birthday gift for my son.  We have hiked on the old L&NE mainline and he has seen trains on the old Bethlehem Branch.  My experience with the "cheap" Bachman digital equipped locos has been positive.
 
The fuel facility was built by my father using an article from RMC, I believe.  If memory serves me right, it is based on a facility that was at Bangor, PA on the B&P.  This is actually at the entrance to my CR/EL Southern Tier storage yard on my layout.

Sorry the reply took so long, must have missed this in my perusing of the forums.
I lived along the WNYP mainline my whole life, up until better opportunities in Georgia came along. I've worked in or been to 44 states and acquired quite the diverse interest in railroads. I have BN, ARR, URR, EJE, DMIR, BLE, CR, ALY, G&W, lease and undecorated "yet to be" engines, as well as the LA&L family power. While my long term home layout plans are for the Alaska Railroad, the modules we operate are centered around a Lake Erie - Allegheny River location. The thread link is for the mods we operate:

A few of the engines on the test track.

Hello Guys,
While I know this is mostly an Eastern interest forum.
Here's one of my recent acquisitions.
