    A couple of infernal combustion heavies, an older SD-7 and a GP-20, make a rare appearance on the LC&P'S tracks...Must be something going on to have stepped on the steamers' toes...:D

    And the great pictures keep coming...hey a GP20 isn't that old is it?

    I have no right posting any more pictures today after showing a sizeable amount of my diesel roster on another thread...but I've been working steady for a couple hours tonight trying to improve on my bland landscaping on the layout and here's what I have to show for it.

    That GP38 was supposed to be slowing behind the factory but the over growth of razor grass obscured the sign to slow to 30. My guess was he was doing way more than that when he flew by. I was lucky to get the camera up and grab two shots showing the diesel. By the third shot, he was gone and very loud braking could be heard as he no doubt saw the 30/20 marker and realized his mistake. Good thing he had nothing in tow this trip.

SPECIAL THANKS to Kurt(cnw1961):wave:, and zachary:wave:, for stepping up to the plate and submitting plans for me to look over:thumb: THANKS GUYS!:D
    BOTH had GOOD PLANS, but i have decided to go with Kurt's. over the next week, i will be ripping up 90% of the layout and start working on the NEW plan:thumb:. i plan on "back dating" the layout to 1969-79, by doing this, i can get away with running quite a few of the engines i have, and will be able to run about 80% of my rolling stock;). OF COARSE it will STILL BE the Union Pacific's "Rock Valley Sub":thumb:, and will have interchanges with CNW and the Milwaukee Road;).
