    Two separate trips to the train museum in Green Bay WI, shots taken by my dad, with a cheap camera. These shots are from around 1992 & 1997 respectively. Look at little me in the first shot.

    Josh, naw, thats NOT the con-cor model, is that out yet? Bowser bought the old Varney molds years ago, i bought these from Bowser about four years ago. the pics you posted are NICE:thumb: , hope you don't mind if i save them:winki: .

    two things on these pics,
    1- they really look out of place, i do my layout as Southern Wisconsin, so the Aerotrian looks funny in this setting:oops: .
    2- not sure what happened to my lighting in the first four pics, looks kinda weird:confused: .

    KEEP 'EM COMING FOLKS!!! :deano: -Deano

    green_elite_cab Keep It Moving!

    Wow, aweome pictures everyone!

    First up, Thank you UP SD40-2 for the help with the lighting suggestion!!!:thumb::mrgreen:

    I might just paint some of it black in there so it doesn't shine back into the cab! its not pictured, but i finally installed a decoder in my 44 tonner, so now i've moved my layout entirely over to DCC since i have enough locomotives to run my layout with DCC.


    One of the greater ironys on my model railroad is that most of my heavy freight locomotives are short B-B style locomotives, while my super fast awesome passenger locomotives are all high horsepower 6 axle machines.


    Last for today, here is a drawing i did of a C&O allegheny.

    Wayne, nice scene and steamer. I love your big structures :thumb:, unfortunately my layout is too small for something like that.
    Andrew, Bigsteel, I can’t take credit for the brick detail of the palace hotel. It is a Downtown Deco hydrocal kit.
    tomkat, I like how you make your scenes come alive with your LPBs.:thumb:
    Ralph, I wouldn’t like to be in that camp at night, but it’s a great scene.
    Tom, beautiful engines and I really admire your rocks :wave:.
    TrainNut, awesome shot.
    Mark, beautiful picture.
    Larry, the yard in your picture with all the hoppers and tank cars is very impressive.
    Deano, I like the shots of your layout from that new angle (first 3 pics), and I promise never to get sick of seeing your grade crossing pics :rolleyes:;-).
    Charlie, I didn’t know you had any problems, but glad to see that you can post pictures :mrgreen: – great shot. :thumb: Hope to see more pictues like that.
    HOtrainman, some good ideas for car loads :thumb:
    G_E_C, nice pictures and very nice drawing :goldcup:.

    As the trackworkers make the last of the day's repairs to the siding line, the excursion Southern F-units pull into the station.

    Ralph Remember...it's for fun!

    Lots and lots of terrific pics! All of those Areotrain photos reminded me that I had posted an old photo of myself in front of the one at the Museum in Green Bay.


    I don't know how long ago that was taken..I still have dark hair in the photo! :)

    That shot just says "NJT as I like to think of it". I was never there to see it, and so I missed the days of large passenger power.
