Great shots Tom! I do love the weathering on those Alcos. It looks so good, I can hear them rumbling!

I'm glad to see this thread active again!

Chuck, the upgrades to your boxcab show up nicely in that photo. Sammy, I like the 'at speed' shot. Don, the low angle shot is neat. Rick, the club layout is a great setting for that lash-up. Tom, fantastic weathering and photography.

Here is some activity at the L&HR/Susquehanna interchange.

Tom,
I like your Alcos. #420 reminds me of the red Indiana Hy-Rail units that used to run around northern Indiana

A bit of fantasy on my part, but the colors are right for the Susquehanna.

Mark and Scott. Thanks!

Bruce. Great photos and modeling. I really like the first one above with the two Alco's. What an awesome scene. The last photo above is equally impressive. The first one though is Killer!

Andy. Great trio of N&W units. You nailed the looks of those units for sure. Excellent!

Sammy. I've always loved your photos and modeling. I don't always respond to you but I really do like what you're doing. Very believable and it looks like you have fun which is important. Your recent addition of the Santa Fe GP60M is a great shot! Excellent weathering.

Richard. Nice layout. I really like your weathering on the SP unit in the first photo. The area under the dynamic break blister looks exactly what I've seen in photos and on a former SP tunnel motor here in Indiana on the TP&W (Rail America). That beast looks a bit out of place on a midwest Indiana short line.

There are so many really great modelers here I'm afraid to miss someone if I try to mention them all. Thanks for showing your uber-modeling, guys.

LV -2 holds at the Penn Haven Home signal while a couple of "borrowed" RDG helpers run around LV-2 to get back to Lehighton for another bump up the hill.

Thanks, Tom.

Andy, I love that Davenport!

Last fall I brought my Budd RDC to a club layout. The Chesapeake Bay & Western is George D's club. Nice to see it on the broader curves of a big layout!

Bruce, that's a good shot that includes my L&N interchange car. I don't recall seeing that photo before. Is this the first time you have posted it?

Wow! So many great contributions from some of our newer forum members! You've got me very excited! Keep those pics coming. Your modelling is fantastic and your layouts are inspirational!
Ralph Renzetti came up to Ottawa for our inaugural Train Expo. He brought this beautifully weathered CN diesel over to my layout and I had fun running it and railfanning it as well. Here it is in my town of North Dover.

Jon, when the car was here, I took a bunch of shots. I'm not sure if I included this one in the Interchange thread or not.

Mike. What a terrific looking CN unit. Very nice! I also like your water in the bottom photo. You nailed the color. It looks like the river/creek is swollen and muddy from a recent heavy rain.

Andy. What a fine job you did with the weathering on your Davenport switcher.

Ralph. That is a great looking photo. I really like how the spur with the coal hoppers is much lower than the main line. The ground cover looks just right too. The signal and all completes the scene.
