    More and more great contributions! Brakie, I do like photos of locomotive facilities!

    Dang! Why didn't I notice that sand tower on the right was leaning a bit?! Hmmmmm, looks like it would be a good plan to paint the inside of the engine house too. One of the best uses of one's own photos is to motivate improvements! :)

    eightyeightfan1 Now I'm AMP'd

    Its actually a kitbash taken from DPM. The brown part is part of a DPM kit(Its been so long I forgot which one...I think Goodhall's Mattress Factory) The red part was made using DPM's modular wall system. The dust collector is scratchbuilt. The boxcar is an Athearn Genisis 60' High-Cube kit, with decals made from my computer,using a scan of the original Central New England logo I got from a book.(The real CNE is a fallen flag)
    Here's another pic.

    Saturday, September 25th, 2007, 6:27: Taken from the Riverside Herald:

    Hello folks, in today's news, we have an update on our current story about the unexplained apperance of an ALCo FA2 from Canada in Riverside. The management of the Riverside Railroad (RRR) has given the details about how this FA2 has ended up here exclusivley to the Herald first. According to RRR oficials, CN # 6750 has been bought from the Canadian National Railroad and has been restored to running capacity. The report of this to railfans was enthusiastic, to say the least. Speaking of the railfnans, we at the Herald have been asked by the RRR to tell all railfans reading this paper to STOP SENDING THEM MAIL asking them to get another old engine, because it seems that not one, but TWO engines have been bought for restoration. The RRR has kept tight liped about the seccond engine, currently in their restoration shed under blackened windows, while heavy machine sounds have been heard inside. The RRR will only say this: "We will NOT reveal our new engine yet, you will have to enjoy our new A unit you guys have nearly drowned our offices in from all of your letters asking for it. However, we will say this; EMD fans will rejoyce when we unveil our new engine:twisted:"

    The two ALCo's of Riverside doublehead a freight. Hey, come to think of it, my RS-32 has a conection to every loco I have except the Hustler:p

    New ballast work on blocks 4, 4A and 4B of my layout. I still have to go through and pick the ballast of the sides of the rails.

    The good stuff keeps coming and coming!

    Jeffery, would you tell us about your backdrop buidlings? Do you take photos or did you print them off internet images?

    Nice loco Val! Although a confirmed diesel lover, I do like a good steamer. My only steam locomotive is this old Tyco that I brought out for modern day service just for fun, and as part of the recent photo contest for unusal or unlikley pics. :)

    Great pics everyone!:thumb:

    Today I got my BL2 back, and I got more than I thought! Not only did the owner of DCCTrain repair it, he added the ability to run the loco on DCC as well, and the repair was totaly free!:eek: I have assembled the engine, and aparently the engine was never broken in, 'cause it's making some herky-jerky movements (although my F3 never did any of that, but then again, the F3 isn't even half the age of the BL2). Here's pics of the BL2, the latest aquisition of the Riverside Railroad:
    (The front is the coolest part IMO)

    Keep the pics commin folks!:mrgreen::thumb:

    OOPS! Nearly frogot to add in the newspaper clipping:

    Sunday, September 16th, 2007

    The seccond new engine to appear on Riverside's rails first shocked not the populace of Riverside or the touring railfans, but the RRR itself! From what we at the Herald have gathered, the BL2's restoration has gone way faster than schedule predicted, leading to the sudden pressing of the engine into service two months early! Needless to say, no one is dissapointed. Although the engine is making unusual sounds, the mechanics say that the engine had to be entirley rebuilt (aparently some raccons had made thir nest in the engine and they, ah, 'relieved' themselvess all over it), with half of the engine needing replacement parts, so the engine is being 're-broken in'. EMD fans are indeed rejoycing, for the BL2 is a cousin of the F3, and these two engines are finaly being rejoined at last. It is unkown now what the heads of the RRR are planing, but many are calling the RRR 'The Restoration Railway' because of their ability to re-instate old engines from the prime time of the American Railroads after WWII.
