Hey! That is not what that dock is for!

Show me another dock of some sort, hopefully not with any more bad behavior.

Canadian Pacific ran an extensive lake system in British Columbia. The pic below is from a B.C. modelers layout and I don't believe it exist anymore. I hope to do something similar on my layout at some point.

More waterfront please.

Here is one from my "Generations" series from a year ago: A New York Central E7 and a Niagara round the curve at the west end of the Black River Valley layout on adjacent tracks.

The "TurboTrain" built by United Aircraft. This is on the Orlando N-Trak Group's sectrional train show layout.

I might have cheated, I am not 100% sure the prototype has a diesel power plant.

Please show me another diesel locomotive that was not built by General Electric, American Locomotive, or General Motors.

Here's the Erie Northshore's "BEE", with a couple of recently acquired trailer coaches...

Originally a gas-electric, it was converted to a diesel electric after less than two years of service. 
Unfortunately, I have no knowledge of the engine's manufacturer. Whistling

NYC #874, ALCO S3, is spotting a reefer on one of the Black River team tracks for the local produce dealer.

Let's continue with the pushing and shoving. Switching.
