    Thats right folks, Union Pacific's "Rock Valley Sub" IS back in action!:eeki: :up:
    My NEW layout is so far from finished, it isn't funny:oops: , but i have a couple areas close enough to take some shots off of:smilie: . A couple "firsts" on this roll-by, 1- this is the first time i have posted pics from the NEW gallery here:up: , and 2- this is the VERY FIRST roll-by that i have used a caboose:eeki: (don't ya love the 70's:mrgreen: ).

    ON WITH THE SHOW:smilie:
    Here are some shots with two of Rock Valley Sub's engines running a local through the outskirts of town:winki: . GP30 on the point, followed by a GP35:thumb: , hope you enjoy the show:smilie: -Deano

    Nice run-by Dean, and nice weathering on those cars.:thumb: I also like that first car in line at the crossing, with a trunk lid big enough to land a helicopter on! :thumb: :thumb: :mrgreen:

    Fantastic roll by, Deano. Great weathering jobs, I especially like the Greenbay & Western car. I won’t say these 70s cars like your Ford Custom 500 are beautiful, but there is something about them you gotta like... :mrgreen:

    While I was looking for WSOR pics on RailPictures yesterday, I found two pics of your wig-wags (I think they are the same). Some of them are still standing in Baraboo WI.

    Nicely done Dean! Great looking rolling stock. I like the way the autos arrive in subsequent photos to reinforce the sense of time passing by.

    Great run-by. Nice weathering on the freights. I liked the autos also. I used to drive a '60 Ford "bullet nose" with the big hood and trunk.:smile: :smile: Good memories. I like the signal also. Did you build that?
