I think I will split August into two parts with different themes for each, as we often do during the summer. The theme for the first half of August is "Motive Power" in all of its forms - Steam, Diesel, rail cars, critters, etc. Either Prototype or Model photos are welcome, so post away.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.


In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

Let me start us off with this photo of a brass HOn3 shay offered by Joe Works. It now resides on my Slate Run RR.

Bob, lest anyone ever tell you that your scene isn't prototypical, here is a shot from a fan trip last fall on an old Maine Central line, I think. (The motive power was a Budd RDC and that is the sill of the front window that you see in the bottom of the photo.)

Funny that Bruce should mention an old Maine Central line in the photo above as here is Maine Central F3 pounding across the Boundary Road Crossing on its approach to North Dover on my B&M/MEC layout.



The F3AB combo will interchange traffic with the Boston and Maine in a few moments when it reaches the large curved yard in town.

I have a lot of pictures from the Transportation Museum in St. Louis, so most if not all of my pics will be from there.

Test run of a new loco on the club layout. Next step is weathering and a sound unit.

Rick, I love these vintage loco photos. I just wish I would have had the opportunity to ride on them.................

Nice center cab found on the garden layout brought up to Ottawa by Rick for our "Invasion of Friends" weekend.
