awesome pics steve! I need to ask a question though,
Are the steam locos "working" ie: part of everyday life OR are they more for tourists attractions such as "dinner train" ?

We, NSpoor Zuid limburg, had a small trainshow last weekend. (Only our Nscale module layout...).

Big dog the trains are working trains, I.E. they earn there keep from main line hire, most work steam specials, others work as part of the normal summer timetable like in parts of Scotland, the diesel is substituted for steam. The steam loco i went on a week or so back did a ballast train from a quarry, what it was made for in the first place. have a look at the link at the bottom of this page "steam hauled trains in the UK" and you will see just how many there are

Josh look's like you are going to be busy
Josthat's a fine layout, nothing wrong with a modular layout.
Kieth the pick up truck's spot on, and a nice weathered excavator

Finally found out the designation for this one:

CPR FP9A 1401 (Out of service providign parts to another CPR FP9A







That's it for now
 
That's an SD50F "Taper Draper" built by EMD in the late 1970's-Early 1980's. They're unique to canadian roads. The design concept was a cowl unit with rearward visibility. The cowl unit design was favored by canadian crews as a warm way to maintain the engine in winter.

No, its not. SD50F's & SD60F's were CN units.

Thats an EMD SD40-2F, sometimes also referred to as an SD40F-2.
