Bottom line is they are not Fords, so he's at a loss right from the get go:eeki: ...:mrgreen: ...JUST KIDDING FOLKS, SETTLE DOWN .
I see exactly what your saying Squidbait:winki: , but we are NOT rivet counters here, by NOT being so technical, more folks can join in without feeling intimidated, lets just keep it easy & fun:thumb: .
Phew! I can finally get back into the game! PC GP38-2 since we're not being picky.
If 8038 is a GP38-2, I'm guessing that 8045 is, too! :-D She's seen here nearing Vinemount, atop the Niagara Escarpment, being assisted by TH&B SW9 55.
I'm going to play off the main subject of Wayne's picture... so here's TH&B NW2 51 at Blenheim, ON.
Just a quick side trip to confirm the doc's impressions. PC 8045 was indeed a GP38-2...here's a link to a pic of it heading a train in New Jersey.
Now back to NW2's or more TH&B!
Baldwin DT6-6-2000, Trona Railway, #51
...or #51's. Nice one Art Decko!
WOW!:eeki: , i never thought i would be able to use this shot i took at the IRM in here, THANKS Art Decko!:thumb: (i have seen & heard this run too:winki::mrgreen: )
EDIT: i decided to post another shot i had of this engine, just because its so neat and rare to see these days:winki: .
Unless somebody has a "21", we could be stuck here for a while - both the loco and the railroad are fairly obscure examples. I have a Baldwin, but nothing like that!
Yep, and here's DETX U30C 019 and sister 017 at Monroe, MI.
Ha! I'm amazed someone actually had a shot of one of those Baldwins!
You guys were just having too much fun lobbing softballs to each other, so I tried to toss in a curveball - but it only lasted a couple hours! Guess I'll have to try harder next time.
I have to confess, I got that shot, and my earlier one, from the web (at least I provided the link). I'm not a MRRer, just a MRRing fan from the card modeling side of Zealot, so I don't have volumes of rail fanning shots like so many of you trainiacs.
Neither do I............
Here's one of my HO U30C's.
I know, I know, it's an old Athearn "Fat Body", but I like 'em! :thumb:
OK, I think we'd better get a ruling from Charlie here. I don't think it was ever stated, but I believed the intent was for people to post their own pictures in the thread. I think "borrowing" other people's pictures makes it too easy.
I got the feeling this was the case when a couple of folks posted and then removed pictures that were in their personal collections, but not shot by them.
Over to you, Charlie...

I thought one of me was more than enough!:mrgreen:
