And here is the Chief Engineer



We still have a lot of work. We need to screw the track together, some leveling, and ballasting for starters.

Tom,
I'll bet the kids are happy that the trains are running on the Drexel Hill Central!

Here are Ben & Jerry (or is it Bert & Harry?) hard at work at the yard's storehouse.

That's is some helix. How long does it take a train to climb through it?



I really can't answer that since the helix is primarily use to move trains up in steps from one level to the next. Here's a picture taken at an open house a couple years ago. You can see our other helix in the left half of the picture. I labeled the levels in the picture, there's another level below these east of the helix (away from the camera).


We recently had a discussion about adding scenery and industries near the helix. Quite a few members don't want to cover the helix because visitors love to watch trains going up and down.

I've already posted these two in another thread, so this falls under the category of shameful horn tooting.

About three weeks ago, I entered these two photos, as matted 8 X 10 prints, in the NMRA's Turkey Creek Division's annual contest just for the heck of it. "Pipe Car 17 at the Machine Shop" won the first place plaque. "Water Car 20 at the Welding Shop" won the second place plaque. I don't normally get involved with contests, and these were my first entries in close to 20 years. I was surprised to have won anything.

Your work is always a pleasure to look at, especially how you limit the
selective compression" aspect. The wide streets and open space make it real.
Thanks,
