Another tunnel please.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

Holy haunted railroad Ed! That's awesome. YesYes

I thought someone would just show me a loco with no train behind it.

You'll never be wanting with an effort like that.Cool

PS: We should see if someone can guess the type of loco by the position of the steam and smoke.Smile, Wink & Grin

Well, Brent, when I was playing in Photoshop I kind-of had a NKP Berkshire in mind. Given another hour and I would have done a Mars light and slanted number boards!

I had fun! Glad you liked it Big Smile  Ed

I love the load of dinosaurs!

Here is a curious panda bear watching a train pass by in the Western United States. Especially weird since the STRATTON AND GILLETTE is an Eastern line! Well, it has been an Eastern line from time to time.

Please show me more weird or odd things with trains.

Two perfectly good DM&IR SD9's bought at a train show. 111 & 117. Why on Earth would someone change a perfectly good 117 to a 110?
