Love the weathering on tender 3751…and everything else!
This "work a day" scene, as i like to call it with 3700 series looking like it's being positioned on turntable is absolutely awesome. What makes this great in my opinion is the fact that the steamer is not perfectly posed on turntable itself, but looks like it's been caught by lucky railfan just getting at the roundhouse area. This would look awesome also in black and white. Too bad you have got rid of the layout as you mentioned. I'm hoping you've kept this piece of railroad.Time for a steamer:
Great pics as always Wille thanks for sharing sorry I’ve been gone too.
In my eyes the best proportioned 4-8-4 in the world. They also did some of the longest single steam runs in the world, with same engine starting in Chicago and running on its train all the way to LA.Might be old news, but it's new to me:
1944 built Santa Fe 2926, a 4-8-4 Northern, moves once again under its own power after 70 years in hibernation.
This greyhound could make 110 mph back in the day. Spectacular.
