Nice photos Dan. That red is quite striking. Looks really great when the smoke.

Lamoille Valley RS-3s

Lamoille Valley Railway started operations in 1978 on the old St. Johnsbury and Lamoille County line across the top of VT, 96 mile "covered" bridge route. They started with four ex-D&H RS-3s painted in reverse Rutland colors, 7801-7804. A fifth, 7805, was added later. A few years after startup, the short hoods were chopped. Line out of service in the early 1990s and the remaining RS-3s were scattered, including 2 coming to South Jersey on the West Jersey Railroad (link: http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=91637&nseq=2

Here are some pictures taken from slides by my late friend Glenn Salvatore:





And here a few of my models of them, on a portion of my layout representing the Lamoille Valley line, circa 1980:

Very nice work Mike. Friend of mine and forum member Dave Primeau also models this area. You should have a look at his work on the FNGer's postings. Something strange for all you New England Modellers. Alway the fall. Like the colours. Very well done.

Very nice submission Bruce. I always liked the RS1. I remember the Cape Breton Development Corp used them on plow service in their yard in Sidney NS

Alco S1 #1170 performing some switching moves in the town of North Dover on my B&M layout. Thanks, Chris, for starting this thread many moons ago. I thoroughly enjoy perusing the images, both real and model!


All the best, Mike Hamer

Thought I would add some of my Alco engines to the forum. These are all HO Atlas S-series units.





The lighting was a little bright for this shot, the colors are the same as the other units





Pretty nice runners and all have been converted to DCC.

Although not an ALCO, this NW-2 went through the paint shop on the same day.



This older KATO also has DCC, and believe me, it wasn't an easy install
