    And Charlie, you're a perfect fit for this Forum. ;)

    Here are a few pictures of the still-unfinished tracks on the highline through the Dunnville station area:

    This is the approach from staging, looking north. National Grocers is both left and right in the foreground, with Bertram's Machine Works at centre. Mercury Mills is off in the distance to the right. The tell-tales are for southbound trains, warning of the overhead walkways between the old and new buildings of National Grocers.

    A bleary-eyed view looking north. The water tower in the distance feeds the penstock in the first view, and another opposite the tower itself.

    Here's a view from the roof of National Grocers original building. The near end of the station, fronting on Walnut Street, beneath the bridge, is the express wing.

    This view looks south, back towards staging. The near end of the station is the Post Office, which fronts onto Liberty St., beneath the bridge. The passenger station proper is the centre section of the structure, with the canopy over the doors. The brick structure in the right foreground is the P&M Languay Pump and Compressor factory. National Grocers is in the distance, with the ever-present Northern Lights watching over the scene. :p

    Same view, from nearer the water tower. In the left foreground, the roof of Creechan Fine Fuels' garage/stables, with their office just beyond that (with the billboard on the roof).

    I think they'll find stress fractures in the boiler.

    Here's a shot I took last year of a work train leaving my yard.

    New Equipment on the Ballantyne Sub

    Rarely seen in these parts...Ontario Northland sent their SD75i to the Davidson Repair Shop for progressive maintenance and repaint. Those Canadian winters are sure hard on paint jobs but with new colors - this diesel looks "out of the box" fresh. Coupled to a small string of yard traffic, they're running the motor to break in the new parts, checking all the functions, before sending it north.

    DSL - woohoo!

    I finally got the DSL set up...well, actually, it was all ready to go last night. It was all the IE upgrades, restarts, more upgrades, more restarts, etc. that took the bulk of today. Now Photo Fun can be fun at home too! No more Photo Phrustrating!

    SO to celebrate, and try out the new connection speed, here's a contribution for this week. A Walther's catalog Model Magic entry from 2004. One of my shots was accepted and published; I decided I'll share the other 6-7 here....eventually.

    Hmmm...the manage attachments window took about a minute to load, while the attachment itself only a couple seconds. Anyway, here 'tis.


    The blue building is a kitbash of the Life Like General Store built into a diorama (the area with the blue shed and fence). The other buildings in the background along with the tall pines (spruce, actually) are set in place on foam risers to add depth to the scene.

    It still needs to go in the "shop" for lettering.
