Hello on a Monday night. Should have been back from Wainwright about 6 this morning, but a couple of cars from a lumber train (358) went on the ground to the west of us, around Lindbrook AB. Didn't get home until after 11 this morning.

At any rate, a few shots of my Overland SD38-2 at our club layout;



Former NAR 404, now numbered CN 1653 running light between Blue Springs and Lumby. Note the waterfall under the trestle.



Here is 1653 with the Blue Springs Hauler just outside Monashee Summitt. Crickinback Inn and Echo Lake townsite are in the background.



Later on in the day, 1653 departs Vernon with a through freight.





Right behind the through freight, this RDC set departs Vernon.





The varnish makes a station stop at Echo Lake.





Here is the RDC set at Monashee Summitt. The freight crews change crews at this location between Vernon and Castlegar BC.

Ken,

Those are some spectacular pictures! I especially like the perspective of the bridges.

Hey Ken,

Next time I take the train out west I'm jut going to have to make a schedules overnight stop in Edmonton to visit that club of yours! Your diesel looks super in action on the layout!

Don, thanks also for posting your shots from the Mt. Hood layout. Do you have anymore?


All the best, Mike Hamer

Does a diesel MOW truck count? I made this quite a few years ago from an old Bachmann Gandy Dancer with the figures cut out. I took the shell from an old toy car my son had, and fitted the interior with an HO scale person. The front wheels are an extra set that I had, and the cow catcher is made of a picket fence turned upside-down. I don't have a chip in it, but it runs great on analog.

Sorry about that steamer that "sneaked" in here. I removed that intruder and now substitute this photo from my EL Bloomsburg branch.

Hey Dave, yes...you've gotta love that Erie Lackawanna F-unit...one of the nicest applications of a paint scheme on an F, for sure. Hey, I miss that steamer already!
