More multi-story buildings, please.

Lots of multi-story buildings in this scene on one of the layouts at the Model Trains Station museum in South Carolina.

Show me another building with three or more stories please.

More E-unit locomotives, please.

This is a Model Power E-8A, with a few modifications...

...and a B-unit made from two A-units...

It was done following a similar build in Mainline Modeler, and was considerably more work than the A-unit.  Both were sold when I backdated my layout's era.

Wayne

More E-units, please.

Roger: "More E Units please."

Pennsylvania RR E8s #5713 and 4121 pass under the Route 32 overpass at the head of an eight car passenger consist as a group of dedicated railfans looks on. 

Any more E-units?

The STRATTON AND GILLETTE has a pair of E units, but they are still awaiting paint!

This E unit was seens on the Lionel Great Dogbone Layout at a train show in Tampa, Florida.

I don't know why this E unit it pulling a freight train.

Show me another cab unit of any type pulling a freight train.

Sorry to disrupt the flow of this thread, but that's an interesting looking water-powered mill you've got, Garry.  I don't recall seeing it on your layout before.

Wayne ..... Thanks much for commenting. The grist mill is one of several buildings and structures left over from my older layout which was in the 1900 era. I placed some of them in a corner of my current layout which is about 1960. 

Roger .... I like your train on the bridge very much ...

My request was for a train entering or leaving a tunnel.
