 Pennsylvania Rail road B6s #155 rolls off of turntable. Going in for some maintance. The Original, and one of the first A.C.Gilbert HO PRR 0-6-0 switcher released. The number 155 is not painted but cast onto the Cab. All other Gilbert releases of this Locomotive had there numbers painted on there cabs. This is also the only one with tender trucks of the type seen here. All other 0-6-0s had different trucks, making the tender unique to this locomotive only.

CNJ L3s 4-6-0c camelback # 634 rides the turntable. The boiler body has been shortened, and the drivers replaced from mantua boxpoke, to spooked type.  These drivers came from a "HO Train Co", CNJ 4-6-0 camelback whose cast boiler went bad and was stripped for parts.

Top train, although you did make light of your scenery detail, the one things Im impressed with is that your service area is that it is so beautifully clean all the time.  I am shortly going to be "adjusting" the yard on my layout before putting in the engine service area.  Its going to have to be a fair size as there are back shops (not that big) going in as well.  The joy of a providing power for a large regional line I guess lol.  Keep up the good work.

Goodmornin piglet.
 The reason there is little yard junk laying aroung the roundhouse area is my 4 year old grandson. If it is small, and it is there, it becomes his toy. He takes it for his. What happens to it is they get droped on the floor. Somrtines broken into little bit and vacumed up.

* My Coaling tower area.  
* How it looks today. I need to relocate one track. Maybe find a better location for the sanding towers, and add a wash rack.

** Seasonal change for Christmas time. How I finish the year on my layout.  
*  What I like about putting photos in this way is for these photos that have many pieces of railway equipment in them, you can enlarge photo sections to better see individual pieces somewhat clearly.
* For less complicated photos I'll still use photos that properly apear on the post page.

Your railroad must have a heck of a fuel bill!  I hope they own their own coal mines and possibly a forest of two!
 
Nice collection of steam

Alen : It is a holiday thing. I would only put out some and run them for a month. Since then I got more and it takes longer to run every one. So now they will be out at least 2 months.
