    See how being a Utah Railway fan has messed me up. I see a GP38 and think it is a modern engine.

    I wandered into the LHS one day and they had all these little boxes of Japanese cars (4 cars for $5.) I snapped up 4 boxes. Surprisingly, they are pretty good quality and have decent detail. I need a better camera as there is so much more going on in that scene that you just can't make out. One detail for instance... did you notice the traffic cone? That was an experiment. I made it from the tip of a toothpick and a little tiny washer glued on to the bottom and then painted the whole thing orange. It's a little large but what the hey. I set that scene up specifically for this weeks pic's. Very soon it'll be back to a regular 'ol parking lot as concentrating all of those cars in that one area kind of depleted the rest of the layout.

    Ol' number 488 has since been restored/rebuilt and is again in active duty between Chama, NM and Antonito, CO.

    Thanks for the comments.

    Even though the focus was bad, I still like this picture. Some time I will photoshop a better sign into the picture.

    TrainNut, the traffic cone turned out great. It is about the right size for the ones the school's here put out at the school crossings, so they are perfect.

    Nazgul-the picture looks great, I'm sure your new layout will be great!:thumb:

    nw-fan - Welcome! Very nice engine:thumb: Is that your layout? Great pictures, hope you share more!

    Thanks. It was my layout until I moved due to work a while back (transfer). I am working on a 12 x 2 ft switching layout to keep me from going stir crazy now since I have hardly any extra room (no basement!). It was a 20 x 40 foot double deck layout with a helix. I miss it. :sad:

    Very nice layout! Great looking details. I bet that one was hard to take down.

    There's been a small change made here, something I've always wanted to do with an F7.

    AAR trucks? That is different. Alaska Railroad did have an F7B like that.

    Looks like there's a prototype for just about everything.
