When the PRR inaugurated the bright, shiny, Budd equipment on the Senator and Congressional trains (D.C. to New York) they painted six GG1s in bright aluminum to head-up the trains.

I figured my Congressional cars wouldn't be happy without one to match.

Something else "new" on your layout, please.

David: "More little people 'on Maintenance'"

New York Central #5335 takes on water at the Black River engine facility. A small work crew is sort of working at planting another small tree in the fore ground.

More of the same, please, maintenance scenes.

Here is a small foreign diesel that will eventually become the base material for a semi-plausible nonsense locomotive project.

I bought this guy for almost nothing at a train show, and it runs perfectly. That was a nice surprise.

Please show me another small diesel.

It took two 45 tonners to pull this ore car up a steep grade. This scene is on the Atlanta Interlocking Railroader's modular layout.

A pair of NYC GP-40s at the head of a coal drag proceeds eastbound as a NYC passenger train passes at the west end of the BRVRR.
