This LMB New York Central Mike is circa 1962 and probably my oldest loco on the roster.

I always liked the look of that external dry-pipe. Here she is with some details modified and a paint job:

Save for a little 0-4-0 steamer that now resides in the scrap box, this Santa Fe FP45 is the oldest locomotive on the layout. I bought it because my oldest grandson had a fixation on the Santa Fe Warbonnet livery.

 

Lets continue with your oldest locomotive.

I was in my early teens when my Dad brought me this Tenshodo New York Central Hudson from Japan in the late 1950's.

Every so often Show Me Something gives me the opportunity to show STRATTON AND GILLETTE number 4. A completely freelanced N scale boxcab I built when I was in High School.

.

I have used this picture too many times. I think I might take a new one this weekend.

.

.

Show me another something that is special to you.

I do love the Ferdinand Magellen. I might need to go give it a visit again soon.

Here is a NEW YORK CENTRAL RS-3 pulling a heavyweight train across a steel girder bridge. This scene is on the Atlanta Interlocking Railroad Group's HO scale sectional layout.

Show me a mine, quarry, rock pit, sand dredge, etc.

I just wish it was somewhere other than Miami. That is the only place in Florida I really do not enjoy going into. So many aggressive drivers over there. Great food though.

.

I think we are still looking for mines.

This is on the Scale Rails Of Southwest Florida N scale sectional layout.

Whoops! I missed this:

Pennsylvania E-8 #5713 heads eastbound at the head of a short 'Pike-Sized' train of Walthers passenger cars.

This is the Butte Creek "Bullet." Four passenger cars, all shortened to 30 feet so they can negotiate the tight curves on my railroad.

Show me something modified.
