    Funny isn't it Robin. You say "Old 2-8-4" for a fan trip. I would say that the 2-8-4 is too new for my layout. :confused:

    Looks good though. I remember railfanning near that bridge. :D

    Cool picture of a cool locomotive, Robin! :thumb:

    BTW, I like your use of the coffee can! :)

    (Incidentally, this is the first time I've used the "thumb" smiley in a post.)

    Rory, All the light reflectors are coffee cans cut in half. They even act as a heat sink although these lamps are only 14 watt energy saving lamps.
    Here is a photo of the fan trip heading across country to Cardwell

    Oh Man Robin! sheer power on sweeping bends and throttle up on the staight ... super duper. The backdrop looks great too.
    Must be great having space for gentle curves and long straights.

    Good job RR modelling is a lifelong hobby ... I'm thinking of all that space you will have to scenic! :) :D
    No Robin, we're not gonna settle for huge fields of corn, we will want detail! :D :D :p .

    Keep them pictures acomin.
