Maintaining the right of way requires manpower and specialized equipment. This month, our Photo Gallery will be dedicated to that aspect of railroading. Track crews with picks and shovels, bunk cars and equipment cars, track inspection cars and heavier maintenance equipment, pile drivers and large cranes all make great subjects to photograph.

So post your pictures, either model or prototype, of these crews and their equipment.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page). This can also be achieved by sizing your picture so the width is in the 680-720 pixel range.

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

Dave, maybe it was just the holiday weekend. I'm sure that there are forum members who have modeled Jordan Spreaders, hand cars, pile drivers, etc. More probably have scenes on their layouts that depict track work.

Here is a crew working on a switch stand on the Jersey Highlands RR.

I thought I would add a few MOW shots I took on my last trip to Chama MN.

Here's a string of equipment being staged to build a new yard near Fort Dodge, Iowa, last year.



And here are a couple of shots of the yard under construction.

Steve, there are some nice subjects for modeling in that collection.

Arnold, speaking of subjects for modeling, your photo of that secondary track would be great to duplicate on a mining or logging branch.

Tom, that is one impressive string of equipment sitting there. It must have been a massive project.

Ely McGinty is waiting for the rest of the work train to couple up to the tool caboose and then head out for some much needed MOW along the OVT&L tracks.

Ah! That last photo of the Jordan reminded me of one I took of the D&B Lumber Co. Jordan.
