Creakin' kingpins, Engineers! It's February and time for a new Gallery!

The theme for this month's Gallery is Locomotives. Post your favorite lokie photos here. They can be model or prototype and of any era and locale. Post as many as you like. The only stipulation is that each photo must include a loco somewhere in the scene.

As always, the following restrictions apply: each photo file must be smaller than 80kb and no larger in width than 7" @ 72ppi. These restrictions apply to both photos uploaded to RR-L and photos downloaded from remote servers/websites.

Posted photos not meeting the above requirements will be resized and reposted by the Moderator.

OK, Engineers, steam up or idle up! Let's see what you've got!

OK, I'll start the month off with one for the geared loco lovers. CM&S's old Shay #1 emerging from Tunnel #1 along Millers Creek.

Great start Mike!

Here is one that I posted before. It was handy to post and I figure it is a good starting picture, so here it is again.

I love the real loco's as much as my models. It's because of the prototype diesel-electric that I model them. So, let's take a little look-see at some prototypes that I enjoy photographing.

SD60m at Cove, Pa (scanned print)


SD60m at Enola, Pa (scanned print)


C40-8W,Westbound off of the Rockville Bridge (scanned print)


Dash 9 at Cove, Pa (digital pic)


On one interesting day, last winter, a friend and I chased a shortline south of York Pa. We got some pretty cool pics. Interestingly enough, the engineer knew us from a local model railroad club, and decided to take pics of us taking pics of them. It's a wierd way of seeing reverse railfanning. I guess that would be called railfanning fanning. Here are those pics.

Well, as you all know, I have not started my layout, I don't even own one piece of rolling stock. So all I can do is offer a prototype picture of one of the Credit Valley's 4-4-0 locos.

Here is a picture of the locomotives that pulled the train I rode from Seward to Anchorage in Alaska last summer.
I can not wait until I return this summer.
