Welcome to "The Gallery" for September. For this month, we will have no particular theme. Post your favorite model or prototype photos here.

Please do not post prototype structure photos in this thread. There is a separate thread for the posting of those

The theme for October's "Gallery" will be "Trestles and Tunnels" and was inspired by a beautiful photo layout in the Fall issue of Classic Trains. This is advance notice for those who might want to prepare a special photo for next month.

Now let's see what you've got for September!

These pictures were recently taken here in Portlandland. As you may know, the SP #4449 is owned by the City of Portland and the SP&S #700 by its Historical Society.

It is getting hard to find runable track for steam, and the main reason at this point is that liability insurance rates have sharply increased. The running of steam on mainlines will most likely have to be postponed until this issue can be resolved.

Dick Samuels, owner and operator of the OREGON PACIFIC RAILROAD, graciously hosted these excursions on his right-of-way from OMSI (Oregon Museum of Science and Industry) to Oaks Park (in Sellwood) from June 27th through 29th of this year. His right-of-way interchanges with UP at OMSI and travels Southward to his Milwaukie Yard and vendors. His other line runs between Canby and Molalla, but that's another story (check out SPRINGWATER TRAIL OPENING CELEBRATION under the Photo Forum).

The new SPRINGWATER TRAIL lies adjacent to the OPRR right-of-way from OMSI to Sellwood, and it will provide a route for bicyclists and pedestrians. No track to trail here! The trail (asphalt) runs on the West side of the rails and is separated by a cyclone fence. In contrast, the old EAST PORTLAND TRACTION right-of-way from Sellwood East to Greshem, also know as the SPRINGWATER TRAIL, rests on the path of removed tracks.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did taking them.

Let see if this works.

Last weekend I drove from Kissimmee, FL to Rochelle, Ill to take some pictures with my new digital camera. I know it's a long way, but this ATSF lover wouldn't be satisfied with CSX or Amtrak. I really had other things on my agenda and didn't drive up there just to take train pictures. (That's what I told the Wife anyway!)



With other pressing business, I really didn't get to take too many photos, but what I did get with the new camera really impressed me. It has a ten X zoom and this shot was taken in the "sports" mode. I still need more time with it, but I'm still impressed none the less.

Wow!
These are some great photos!
John W,
I hope you have some kind of disclaimer pertaining to anyone taking that excursion with vertigo, or a heart condition!
That is some fantastic modeling!

Here's a rare shot of heloper service on Goad Mtn...

Here's a pic of the sand tower I completed last week. Working on a fuel rack facility to go with it now.

Eddie,
The cantilever bridge was based on a ATSF bridge and scratch-built from styrene strips. That way I could get the exact length I wanted.

Thought I would try the "insert a file"" while I'm writing this ti see how this works.

During my recent visit to Illinois, I visited my best friend Jim Drennan at Northwestern Illinois Hobbies. These are a few examples of his custom work. First two are an SD45. Second two are a BNSF SD-40? B unit. Third is just a shot of some things he is working on at the moment.











And a close-up of that UP unit.
