A rocky cliff scene on the Atlanta Interlocking Model Railroader's sectional show layout.

Lets keep it going with more rocks... Rock On!

OK, if you insist, 1 more that I have shown a zillion times.

Once more with the rocks!  

Mike.

PS. I need to figure out how to use this camera.  I've only had for about 10 years! Laugh

Or "Rock and Roll" as Ken Patterson has been saying — ad infinitum!

Ooooh--- A Double Simultaneous Reply Post! With the same request no less.

Once more with a scene that features rocks in the foreground.

Rock till we drop! One more with rocks.

You know.  There's no need for explanation or hesitation of repeated posts of your work Mike. 

Everyone has a fingerprint of their own style of modeling.  I don't know what it is with your style but it is unique on its own and always has a cheerful aura about it.

That's what I have always noticed about your style of modeling.  It is set apart and I never get sick of looking at it.

 

I felt the need to step in and comment but let's get back to where we left off here.

Wayne,

As an aside, what's the grade on that section? Great stuff. Steam lives!

More pushers (locos, that is), please.  Steam or diesel.

If I recall correctly, John, it's 2.8%, and is laid-out on an S-curve.  The total length of the grade is just under 17'.

This one...

...is also 2.8%, but with multiple curves, and is laid out over a distance of 45'.

Wayne

More pushers (locos, that is), please. Steam or diesel.

Here's the 5303 in pusher service, nearing the crest of the longer grade...

Wayne

More pushers or double-headed locomotives, please.

More multiple locos, please.

Steam to the rescue!

The single EMD passenger engine thought it could — but not without help.

Please show another scene with steam and diesel together.

Peter: "More yard scenes."

Here, in the Black River Yard, part of a maintenance train is visible at bottom right.

Let's continue with yard or team track scenes, please.

A train of autoracks stops at the Mansfield (OH) yard, making a drop off and pickups, and is met by two other trains.

Show me more yards please.
