Ignorance is Patriotic
I'll kick it off this weekend!

So, tonight the mighty modern-day New York Central System had the honor of running on the Lockheed-Martin club layout. I also met up with our forumer Smoke, who brought his modern-day Southern diesels with him. We even pooled our power for a freight train!

The NYCS consist was led by SD90MAC #1001, followed by SD80MAC #1129 and SD70MAC #718.

Enjoy the pictures!













The New York Central crewmembers quip, "We're not in the Bronx anymore!"





Atlas Corn Syrup Tankers... best tank car on the market!







The layout is primarily narrow gauge, but also features standard. Check out the dual gauge track! Some of the turnouts are pretty impressive!



At this point in the journey, Smoke's Southern SD70MAC will join the NYCS lashup for the steep climb upgrade...



Smoke suggested that our 46-car freight was the longest train to run on the club layout...



The Southern SD70MAC now nestled into the lashup:



The major east coast players have taken over the mountain west, and in such style!



Huh? Who's the Rio Grande? Never heard of it!

Very nice, quality photos Matt! Glad you figured out how to use your camera for modeling photos, I figured a camera like that could turn out some high-quality photos. And nice pool power!

Southern Railway lives on
Smoke suggested that our 46-car freight was the longest train to run on the club layout...
That was the longest trains to ever touch the rails. The longest before this one was probably 30 cars or so.

Huh? Who's the Rio Grande? Never heard of it!
i've never heard of them before either. If you google "Rio Grande"........

Here are some more pictures of the pool power.

Well, some more New York Central and Southern media. (as if you didn't already get your fill!)

Smoke and I have been collaborating on producing two videos of of the train we ran. Special thanks goes to GP30RDMT on YouTube for allowing us to use one of his soundtracks for our videos!

Here they are, about 10 MB each... but SO worth viewing!

Go make something!
Everytime I see the NYC locos, to me it looks like they have been photoshopped from a B&W photo into a color photo. I like the effect.

For my photos this week, check out page 112 of the July RMC. My two Freemo modules and two of my locomotives are shown as well as yours truly. I was quite surprised when I picked it up and saw myself there.

I that 2nd video, if my reading is right, they're passing CP Acward, which, reads out as awkward!?

Oh man, I sure enjoyed the videos (and the photos)! They are so very real like, particularly adding the sound.
Only one problem: Smoke, shouldn't the Southern be the lead engine?:rolleyes: :D :D

Brakie: Love those long rails.;)

My collection new stuff from packages from yesterday. Mailman buzzed and ran, so I had to pick them up this morning. There's six (6!) Auto-max cars, 3 Walthers Bi-levels, and a RPP SD60. I also got 4 CNW/UP snow plows.
