 How about an RDC or two or three, please.

Anything else with more than four axles, please.

 

All my six axle diesels are NYC E units, a pair of E8s and two E7 A/B lash ups. I do have an old Athearn BB Trainmaster which I am considering bringing out of retirement and upgrading to DCC. Here a lone E8 leads a passenger train into Bedford Falls.

Show me a multi-unit diesel lash up or double headed steam.

Show me another six axle locomotive, please.

A six-axled Jet. The engines on the track behind are only five axles each:

Not quite as nice a layout as Kevin's photo, and in N, not HO, but at least the same RR company:

Another junction or a railroad crossing at grade, please.

 

A NYC passenger train is approaching the diamonds at a crossing with the Lehigh & Hudson River while cars from New England sit on the interchange track, waiting to be picked up by the NYBW peddler freight.

More junction photos please.

More wind powered please.  Regards, Peter

 

 

I thought I was out of luck on wind power until I remembered this weather vane on the roof of a house on along my short line. 

I took 4 shots of this and this was the best I could do with my auto focus camera.

Doesn't seem to be a lot of wind powered elements. 

Show me a junction or interchange yard, please.

You may try placing a page with print or a picture (do not use a glossy picture) on it from a magazine right behind the weather vain, the camara should focus on that page, pull the page away and press the button.

I also have placed my left hand behind the object and pulled my hand away just before pressing the button. 

Maybe try focusing on that chimney to the left of the weather vain, when the chimney is clear/in focuse slightly move the camara to the right and press the button.

If the chimney is clear/in focus and the weather vain is still in the picture just press the button.

Mark/Ed -  A Scratchbuilt Station.

One built many years  ago.  Been on several layouts.  Now rather 'battered  and seen better days as it resides at Clarence Dock Goods Yard   for the workpeople.

I'd like to say it was mine — but it is scratchbuilt.

Take a look at the marble work on the wall above and the limestone structure outside —

Can you believe this thing was built mainly of LEGO® blocks!  Just amazing.

 

More depots or stations, scratch, bash or otherwise, please.

How about a scratchbuilt station?

You're killing me!

I built a beautiful "from scratch station" for the Scale Rails Of Southwest Florida N scale boxcar layout, and I cannot find a picture of it.

Back to our regular schedule...

Please show Mark a scratchbuilt station.
