Then deeper into the yards we find the motive power, at rest for the day.
Nice shots jon!!!:thumb: the photo`s show up the track work !
And I wish I could model worn out up and down track like that last shot!!:thumb:
And here we have ou rpoor, old, sun faded, oversimplified icon of railroading, our lady, 55041
TY Chris The Saturday shots really show hte track work. I plan to work on those and post 'em tonight. I have a few more Sunday shots to post here showing the switchstands and a gondo dump pit.
This is about as far in as I go, for fear that I will not be invited back next weekend. I'm standing under the overpass that I drive over and shoot from during the week.
Just for giggles, this is the road I walk down into the yards, were lookin' South now. At the far end of the photo is a crossing, which is near my house, and is where I shot the first photo's for this thread from. The yard lead extends 1/2 mile past the crossing, and used to be the main line through town, but not the old Monon route that ran down the middle of 5th St.
Always a lot of interesting junk around here.
Gondo drop pit, as promised. I'll bet they'd poop a brick if they saw me around that hole! I have a pic from the side somewhere, the pit itself. Sometimes it's full to the brim, sometimes empty. Haven't seen any MOW stuff around for months and it's been empty, so I guess the tracks are mostly in good shape now.
Someone's dad's gunna be mad when he see's that hammer all rusted.
I thot it might make a nice souvineer, then I thot, better not. So I thot I'de move it out of the shadow and shoot it, then I thot better not even touch it.
And a perfectly good glove. Urm, I mean derailer.
Don't worry, Tyson, if you don't have enough switch stands! Just leave 'em off, it's prototypical
Deeper in the yard, smaller stands are used, but htey've added these ridicules yellow handles to them, which must negate any benefit of the smaller head The yellow handles are a recent addition.
Gondo full a scrap
