Nice float Bridge Peter

The center pier has yet to be added on this double Warren truss Bridge.

Show me anything on your Railroad or another Bridge.

Interesting picture Ed. I don't know if you noticed but your flash reflection on the wall looks like an obscured by clouds Sun in the sky. Unless that's the way it really is. Regardless I really like that bridge.

Thank you, TF!

Yes that does look like "Sun flare" or refraction of some sort. Now all I have to do is prevent the girders from casting shadows on the clouds Hmm

Cheers, Ed

This ALCO S3, NYC #874 is one of two small switchers on the Black River Valley Railroads locomotive roster.

More small locos, diesels or otherwise.

How about a Pair?

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!

what's a Lima

Lima Locomotive Work's. Their probably best known for their Shay geard locomotive's , but they also built steam donky's and some other stuff.

The Demon's Hollow & Pacific purchased Their Shay # 2 from Lima Locomotive Work's Way back in 1912.

EDIT: Maybe I should have kept it simple..... Show me a Geared locomotive ???

Rust...... It's a good thing !

Well , look's like I brought the thread to a screaching halt.... yet again !

I will fix this by posting a NEW ( yes that's right folk's ) a new picture.

This is Demon's Hollow Shay # 3. Currently on the R.I.P. track. ( She suffered a "Catasrophic" Fall onto a concrete floor about 10 year's ago...... been waiting on me to fix her ever since. )

Show me something Broken, or just not working.

Rust...... It's a good thing !
