Ralph, I really enjoyed the pics of your diesels and the layout is a beaut too! [:-apple][:-apple]

Those "snowbirds" really stand out against all the wonderful foliage. While I don't run any snowbirds on my B&M layout, I do run "Bluebirds" the blue B&M GP9's in the interlaced B&M logo designed by the president of the railroad's wife. (She also did the NH for the New Haven)

All the best, Mike Hamer

Love the geeps! Railfans should be able to spot those Columbus and Hocking Valley units quite a distance away in those vibrant colours! Great job on the engines! Can I come over to operate! (A smile for each geep!)



Sure,If you're ever in the Bucyrus,Ohio area..You are welcome to drop by.
That paint scheme is known as the "Red Bird" scheme after Ohio's state bird the Cardinal.
Sadly by 1988 the red bird scheme was replace by this scheme.

By 1990 all of the old GP7/9s are retired.[:-weepn]

Of course my N Scale C&HV is set in 1980.

Hi Brakie, you said...

Of course my N Scale C&HV is set in 1980.

Isn't it great how we can re-create history at a time period of our choosing!!! [:-bouncy]

By the way...nice looking locomotive in black with white lettering! [:-apple][:-apple]

Mike, thanks for posting pics of the Super Chief! Gotta love that ABBA lashup! There's no other match for the beauty of this power arrangement!

Those cream and green units are also very handsome! By the way, was that your layout the units were filmed on or a club layout? It's fantastic! [:-apple][:-apple][:-apple]

Thought I'd share my smallest locomotive on my layout...the 44-tonner I have painted up in the Pinsly inspired colours for my fictitious shortline railroad, the "St. Clare & Northern".

Yes, it is a very shiny looking unit as this shortline takes great pride in the appearance of its few locomotives. Note too, the narrow cupola buggy at the end of the short train! [:-apple]

This first picture shows a short hop out of North Dover. The train is crossing the Salmon River from New Hampshire to Maine on a beautiful stone arch bridge.



Our St. Clare & Northern crew is now in the state of Maine and is passing nearby the interchange with the Maine Central.



We spot the shortline train about to cross the New England River bridge. The consist has just exited the outbound end of Marshall Cut.



Here's hoping that other's have some diesels to share...no matter how big or how small! [:-apple]

Hi Bruce...wow, for a relatively simplistic black paint scheme, the front dressing of yellow really makes the Erie RS2 a classy looking engine. [:-apple]

Mike,
If you want something with a flashier paint scheme, here is my M&E RS-1.

Thanks, Bruce. Man, those RS1's are real beauties too! Love that squared off look...and the colours on the M&E are fabulous! They sure stand out against the scenery, I bet! [:-apple][:-apple][:-apple]

Well, okay, as long as you don't make fun of the little fella.

Hey, Mike, here are a few diesel shots . . .


A Central of Georgia Rwy headed by an F3 rumbles through Wadley on its way to Savannah.


An westbound Georgia Southern freight headed by a GP7. The GS has trzackage rights on this stretch.


An eastbound Georgia Southern passenger train is heading east to Augusta. How many passenger cars are in the photo?

Hope you enjoy.

Hi Steve, Great shots from one great model railroad! Let me guess, there are fewer passenger cars in the image...with a little help from a mirror?! Hmmm...if I'm correct, you've done a great job visually enhancing the layout using that time-honoured technique.

Steve, I love your railroad! I consider it one of the best ever! [:-apple][:-apple][:-apple]
