Sure am lookin' forward to seein' em, Dick!
Have taken about 100 pictures the last two days. Going in to my daughters today so she can download them to her computer. She will then E Mail them to me so I can sort them out and post the best ones. Should be around the first of the week (Mon - Wed.)
I finally reduced the number of pictures of N Scale Gauge box car TGR 101976 from about 100 to 30. Then weeded them down to 15 so here goes. The quality isn't the best so bear with me.
The first picture showes the TGR 101976 in a train coming onto the K R & T Railroad through the NARA interchange track
It has arrived in the swithcing yard and is in the process of being switched to the local track for delivery to the first destination.
The TGR 101976 is full of finished lumber and Canadian Rye Whisky.
HEY! What is this.? The door is part open. It is supposed to be shut and sealed.
On closer inspection and checking the contents with the waybills it is discovered the Canadian Rye Whisky is gone.
After questioning the incoming train crew, it was found that the train had to stop and was delayed for two hours on the interchange track because of track work. That must have been when the car was broken into and the whisky stolen. Anyway the police have their job cut out for them.
Anyway, the local containing TGR 101976 is on its' way to be spotted for unloading. But, where did that engine come from. There is supposed to be a K R & T engine for the locals. Ok. Found out the regular engine is being repaired and won't be ready for several days so the 2 - 8 - 0 was drafted in its place.
After traveling about an hour and cruising downhill The engineer suddenly noticed that things weren't what they were supposed to be ahead and slammed on the brakes. He managed to stop the train in time only to discover the track is blocked by a derailment from the next track.
A shot of the derailment.
The crane is on the scene and hard at work clearing the track
The track has been cleared and the local went happily on it way. It dropped TGR 101976 at the Storage and Transfer Wharehouse to unload the lumber. Was supposed to unload the Whisky to but to bad.
After unloading the Lumber, bags of Capay Valley Almonds and several cases of Napa Valley Wine are loaded and waiting to be picked up.
The next day, a SD-7 of the K R & T Railroad is on hand to pick up the car to be spotted at the next place.
Whoops. Hit the wrong button.
TGR 101976 is now spotted at the Rice Mill and several hundred bags of Sacramento Vally Rice is loaded. This makes a packed box car.
TGR 101976 is being picked up and taken back to the yard to be placed on the NARA Interchange train.
Here is TGR 101976 arriving at the yard.
The train containing TGR 101976 is now on the NARA Interchange track and on its way
It is GOING
Oh Oh. What is that at the end of the track?
