Neat stuff!  And I see in picture two that if all else fails they've got a good ol' DC-3 standing by "just in case!"

Hi Penny: Keep an eye out for a Marx missle launcher (based on the real Nike) to add to that scene.

A handful of other spacey-railroady stuff.

Rocket on a flatcar:

A 1:48 scale R-7 Vostock to be precise.

1:48 scale LEM with Atlas Trainman CNW EV caboose and 1:48 scale Saturn V 1st stage booster:

Saturn F-1 engine on a K-Line DOD flatcar:

1:48 Friendship 7 Mercury capsule on same flatcar:

A better pic of the capsule.  These are all cardstock models by the way:

Me (small shape standing behind right landing gear) invesigating the Enterprise.  Mom and Aunt Carol running to catch me before I tried to climb aboard  Laugh:

And last but not least, some Super 8 movies showing the ALCO powered Crawler Transporter and the Space Shuttle Challenger on the pad for it's maiden flight:

Yep.  I don't just have trains in my blood, I'm also a total space cadet!  Wink

Nice rocket collection ! Great footage, also.

Remember NYC experimented with a jet engine powered RDC?

x-1000 , or something like that.

My wife's first cousin is a retired astronaut (shuttle pilot, commander, and a stint on the Russian space station Mir).  A few years ago, he showed me a prewar O-gauge locomotive that he had inherited and knew nothing about.  He asked whether I could get it to run.  I could and did.  The next time I was at his house, I was surprised to see that he had converted his astronaut-memorabilia room to toy trains and his pool table to a layout!

No surprise Lionesoni, how do you top yourself when you've been into space?

Get into toy trains, that's how!  It's a whole new universe!

And folks, since we're talking about things that "...slip the surly bonds of Earth..." you have GOT to see THIS...

It's the big Experimental Aircraft Association Fly-In week at Oshkosh, and the link is to live cams.  It's unbelieveable!  Like every aviation movie come to life!

Bob Keller, if you're looking in, as an old Air Force guy you'll be proud, the USAF heritage is well represented!
