I've been too busy getting all the Fall stuff done around the house to spend much time on the layout. A couple days ago some Tortis arrived so I will be back getting the finishing touches on the trackwork in the new room soon. In the meantime, I have been doing some scenery building near the tunnels and Outlet (river) just outside of the City of Kanandaqua on the layout.

Still foam city but taking shape:


This is the outher side of the mountain....(What the bear saw when he went over the mountain):


The stone and wooden bridge (built in the late 1800s) over the Kanandaqua Outlet:

Looking good Ray,,

just took a few pics in Coppull at the track renewal site, they got another half mile ripped up and are on with the ballast removal

this is where the old ballast goes, then they take it to be re cycled and used again

some usefull information

hiding up front is an EMD class 66

a bit further up the line is a ballast train, as is normal the engines hiding under a bridge, these are "Seacow" trucks

the device below is used to lift around twenty concrete ties at once into location ready for the rail to be clipped in place

and the last shot for now, i'll be back later

Nice pics everyone!!

I finally have trains running. Here are a few pics...

Have a good weekend...

Ok, an hour of hand sawing, and killing a blade, I have succesfully chopped a "lump" out of an Athearn SD40-2 chassis, so that the RPP SD45-2 shell would fit on it, look closely on the engineer's (far) side, the shell is orinetated to "drop" on:

Now with the shell on the chassis, BNSF 6460 is "done"!
View attachment 4471

Reminder, use a dremel, not a hand saw, its much easier.

nice bit of work Josh

some of the equipment taking a break, new rail and ties at rear capable of 140 mph running, or it will be once ballasted, and the old track and ties near camera with 110 mph speed limit

a CAt D5 dozer equipped with rail wheels
