Jarrell's Show Me Something — MARCH, 2023
Posted by gmpullman on Tuesday, February 28, 2023 11:44 PM

     Time Marches on...

The last request of February was "anything goes" and we will start March off in the same manner.

Here's the New York Central gas-electric M-10 on its daily run:

This was the first picture took with my 10mm fixed length lens that stopped all the way down to f32. I was amazed at how deep the depth of field was.

One of my favorite scenes. Passengers entering or leaving Bedford Falls would have this view out the window.

More favourite scenes please

Bridge #4 of eight is the favorite.  Not only for being partial to Pratt's, but it presented a problem demanding a solution.

Perhaps in a perfect world it would have been built on piers, but it had to straddle two lines below.

 

Thanks for kicking off March's "Show Me" EdSmile

More favorites please.

More metal die-cast models, please.

And the E6 sure is a handsome steamer at that.
 
 
This die-cast model was made by a short lived company, from 1967-73.
 
 
Aurora Postage Stamp, heavyweight depressed center flat cars.  The lot of six are of my favorites and are not cheap to find.  Some of them have the patina of real rust on the edges that look quite good.  They came with Rapido couplers and were converted with MTL conversion kits, not designated for the car.
 
Quite tedious as they needed .015 shims cut for them to be aligned in the metal housings correctly, to cure the slop so they would work properly.
 
 
More metal die-cast models please.

I have lots of black steamers.

Here's a 1980s Rivarossi rendition of UP's 8444, complete with a coal tender and pizza cutter flanges.

An even older (60+ years) camelback. 

One of my most recent additions, a Mikado lettered for my home road.

More basic black steamers please.

And here is a wild west era passenger train from the Virginia and Truckee. For those who don't know, that's Virginia City Nevada, and Truckee River (Reno).

Please show me old fashion trains, cars or locomotives. The older the better.

-Keivn

 

In the 1920s, the NYBW built a second divided mainline to create a gentler grade for trains going uphill. This required a second bore (on the right) for the State Line Tunnel between New Jersey and New York. 

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. 

Show another tunnel or a bridge, please.
