    Hey Chris.
    With that warning, maybe I can buy a pair of safety shoes before next year.;)
    Can you tell us a bit about the turntable: how is it operated and does it have automatic indexing?

    Hi David,
    From what I could tell it was a simple affair, John just detatched the locking bars that were set at each end to make sure the tracks were lined up. Then he threw a handel and two big noisy motors turned the table and with no engine on, it was a fast turn

    John threw the brake on and inched it to a track;)

    Dont forget the safety shoes;) ya got 12 months:D

I will admitt the one I took of you looks good too ( not for the calander though.) Ha HA !! Really looking forward to seeing how the rest turned out. Cheers Duckman..

    Chris, thank you for the ride through these shops!

    Visiting such a place makes us realize that railroads are BIG STUFF. Sometimes our occupation with small models makes us forget that in reality even a 'small' truck is quite a heap of steel. :D

    Never heard about this story. Was anyone injured in the explosion? It look's like big chunk's of tank car pierced into the nose of the locomotive. It can't be to bad though. Maybe some work, new part's repaint and sell of to some small line railroad.

    Hi KCS, wow a three year old post great.
    As far as I know there was no injuries, I think Val also posted info and pictures of the fire, a search should soon find it.

    They said it would be repaired but don`t ask the cost.
    I did`nt LOL.
