give it your best shot everyone
Wow that ALMOST went over my head, then I looked back & saw the stroller!Steve B Howly Steve you've got the same "8Wheel 2 hands" vehicle as we had for 9 years ago!
Wow Josh, that SD40-2 on the left looks mighty familiar!So last weekend I dedicated a picture to Grandeman, this weekend it goes out to Ken L. Its not quite done yet, I still need the decals, and the roof needs another coat of black but otherwise she looks good alongside BNSF #7307.
When many railroads were faced with declining passengers due to the influx of autos and better roads, they tried to cut their losses in many ways. One way the Colroado Southern did was by placing large autos on the rails to haul the few passengers and mail they had. They expanded the operation by adding on trailers, then as in my model, replaced the car body with the front of a bus to carry more people. When freight revenue declined too, the trailers were converted to carry passengers too.Nice vehicles Bob and great "painting"!
Please can anyone explain to me what a "galloping goose" is/used for.
I am (still) not familiar how you call your types of trains/loco',s or freight-cars.......I still have to learn a lott!! I'm glad I can.
