Hi Karl, Little Joke between Kenny and I. Not one I care to expand on.

Not sure of your meaning there. Sounds like it might be a negative thing, tho. [:-bigeyes2]



Actually, it was a sincere 'tip of the hat' to the DC GEVO...It is a very fine piece of machine. Some of my buds have used the term ' a good bit of kit' to describe it as being good.

I have had a history of falling off the chair from time to time as a brakeman...must have been 'a real rough piece of track' - yeah, that's it!...[:-sleep][:-banghead][:-sleep]

Just thought I'd re-ignite this thread from the past so that newer forum members can share their pictures of diesels on their layouts. Here are two GP9 Bluebirds earning their keep along Boston and Maine rails on my home layout.



The train has just crossed the Salmon River from the state of Maine and finds itself on the outskirts of North Dover in New Hampshire. A railfan snapped this image at the Boundary Road crossing at the edge of town.

Not on my layout, but the club I belong to in Strongsville, Ohio.



NYC Alco RS-32 and two F3's pulling a fast freight through town.



PRR FM C-liners pulling a coal drag through town.



NKP GP30's after stopping at the crossing and getting their orders.

Thanks for looking!

Kato SD40-2 LVN 5001 at Elspeth Tower. I used one of the backdrops from my clinics to give depth to the photo scene.

This little 18 ton Pacific Coast Plymouth is earning its keep hauling stone on my On30 layout.



A Lenz Gold decoder with a stay alive capacitor crammed in the cab has this little loco running slow and smooth.
