hello everyone---great shots everyone---here's a shot of a CNR inspection car taken in the early 90's
Check this out. I took this photo about 4:30 this morning with the train moving. I used the flash to stop the action but you can still see some of the light from the headlights shining ahead of the loco.
Those two black and white ones were past down to me from the family. Those we're before my pic taking days too:mrgreen: But I did take these.
A Blue B&O and C&O on the Chessie(old PM line) at Porter Junction in Chesterton IN, probably winter 84. The semaphore was working then, but is gone now:cry:
The C&O was my first love, especialy the 50's and 60's:thumb::thumb:
Charlie,Jim: You guys Rock!:thumb: Your protopics are awesome, keep em comin...and Thanks for posting them:inw:
Ok Chessie, here is the last Chessie series pic I have on the computer right now.:mrgreen:I probably have many more in slides that I still have to figure out how to scan.
This one is passing Porter Tower, just like the semaphore, it is gone now too. I remeber as a kid, the tower operator let me "throw the switch":mrgreen::mrgreen:
I guess I better get to scanning more picssign1sign1
Jim & Charlie, I think we could be good friends. The C&O was a class 1 RR that has been overlooked by every one. including model manufacturers until last few years. All I have photos of in my coputer is models. I have a few that I need to scan when I get a chance. So for now you will have to settle for model pics
heris one I posted long ago
oh I found an interesting one here.Look closely at the bottom of the building
and one more
Charlie: you have always had my attention, I just never spoke up
Jim; Get busy scannin!:thumb:
Lester: Fine looking C&O Units:thumb:
Overhead shot of Yard :
Great Photo's Lester & chessie4155
Lester and the Chessies:mrgreen: I alway check out your C&O threads. Like I said, I may do mostly western roads now, But C&O was the first:thumb::thumb:
This one's not C&O, but is a 2-8-4, NKP 765
C&O steam equipment is seriously under represented.:cry: Sure, Rivarossi has a nice Allegheny, Bachmann a nice Mountain, and Proto a nice Kanawha, but where are the L2 Hudsons, F17 Pacifics, A16 Atlantics, J3a Greenbriers, and other beautiful C&O passenger power? Not to mention, a billion people make 2-8-0's but no one makes a C&O 2-8-0!
The only C&O engine I have is one of my favorites:
Great shots everyone!!:thumb:
Charlie that is a BL2 built by GM-EMD maximum speed-65 mph
road numbers 80-85
wieght 219,300 lbs
Horse Power 1500
the one you posted is a GP30 I have that lcomotie on my layout 3001
oh that is an ex Conrail in the heart of C&O coal country. That yard at one time put out 28 coal trains a day. Think about it that would be 28 empties coming in also.those trains would be up to 200 cars each. My grand father was a telegraph operator on that division. Man could he tell some stories. I remember as a child my father would shut off the car when caught at crossing by coal drags. they were very slow maybe 15 mph.
Charlie: Nice pics of all the GP30s:thumb: oh and it's a Pacer not a Gremlin..lol
Lester: I have the sister to 3001 ...3002 but she is in Chessie paint..
