It looks like the 34, on the left, is about to be passed by the freight approaching in the distance...

...but she's just about to start out with her short mixed train.  The whole story, if you've got a little time to kill, can be viewed HERE.  Also, a few posts into the replies, there's a short video.

Show me some more operations with at least two trains involved, please.

Ed: "Another meet or pass-by of trains, please."

A pair of New York Central F7s westbound pass an eastbound freight of loaded coal hoppers at the west end of the Black River Valley layout.

More meets or passings, please.

Two days and nothing to show me?

Bump to the top with Godzilla and King Kong fighting on an N-Trak layout.

Show me something simple, how about a picture in full color? That should at least get us started for the long Memorial Day weekend.

Ed said: "Show me a patriotic scene, or at least a flag flying."

I was shocked to find that I didn't have a flag on the layout. I will fix that over site soon.

UP 8818 is the best I can do.

More flags or patriotic scenes please.

According to the time of your post and the time of my computer, it has been more than 24 hours (or at least according to my calculations, I could be wrong).

New post!

A BNSF local pulls past a passenger train at the station while blocks of cars sit in the mockup of what will become cresent yard.

Show me more small yards or orange locomotives (two choices, yaaaay!)
