Shay #1 is pulling a short OVT&L work train across the long trestle on Millers Creek.
Once again, Casey hops in his time machine, goes back to his favourite time period, snaps a couple of shots, and brings them to the Gauge!
Now my questions is this: is it really cheating if he scrathbuilt his own time machine?
(and can I borrow it sometime?)
Oh my. That is just beautyful Casey. Your work is awesome. Please post some more.
One word: IMPRESSIVE !!!
Just one (stupid) question: Why do most trestles have a barrel on them ? What was it's purpose on a real trestle ?
I've seen them often and always wondered why they were there
P.S.: Very nice picture !
Alex, They contained water for fire fighting purposes.
Casey, It's a classic example of backwoods RR'ing. Absolutely fabulous modelling and photography.
Great shot and wonderful modeling Casey
Here's another from a different angle. The poor railfan who took these photos really had to scramble through the underbrush along the opposite shoreline to get in position...
Hey! C'mere! Look what the sidewinder just dragged in!
Wow! just Wow!

He's done it again!!
Yet another masterpiece, Casey!

When I look at how much talent and knowledge and experience is represented on this forum, it just makes me want to try that much harder. You are all an inspiration to me.
Simply BEAUTIFUL, that is VERY nice. And your right about all the experience here thats what happened to me, watching guys like you Casey, makes me try that much harder, thanks.
Now, how or were did you get those tanks on your flat cars, Sierra Models?
Has any body seen good castings of those little HO metal pails, that spikes come in, and HO track jacks? any thoughts?
Drew, the cars are made up from SW's "Backwoods Work Train." You can buy the car kits separately or as a complete set. When the whole shebang is assembled, there are about 13-15 cars in the train. (I have been working on car #5 for the last several weekends.)
