  • Early next week, it will move to Hartford CT, then to Providence RI, then back to Florida for storage, donation or scrap.

    • This LIRR Commuter is pretty modern compared to the cars I rode to the Hicksville station in the '60s.

      • My very first image I took of a 2 ft gauge cane train in August 1966 which resulted in my life long obsession with sugar cane railways in Queensland and narrow gauge in general around the world.



        Here an 0-6-0DH built by E M Baldwin in Sydney, New South Wales enters the mill yard at the Moreton Central Mill, Nambour with a load of wholestick sugar cane. The driver's assistant is ready to jump off the locomotive to run ahead to change the points where necessary. A 2 ft gauge Shay locomotive can be seen "preserved" in the background.

        • I recently found some railroad related pictures, among my Father-in-Laws things after he passed away. He lived in Bradford, Pennsylvania, but I have no idea where these pictures were taken. Perhaps some of you fellows could determine that by some of the trains in the pictures.

            Bonnie and I were out in Phillipsburg, NJ two weeks ago and I took these shots of an ex-O&W Milk car, ex-L&HR flanger, now belonging to the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians.






            Here is a little history of the car and some more photos. It seems in worse shape now than when the museum purchased it.

            The site of the Phillipsburg Railroad Historians is the old CNJ yard and freight house in Phillipsburg.




            In their H series "Heritage" line of kits, which were the last kits they sold, they had a model similar to the photo you posted. However the one in the kit looked like it have been built from a converted caboose. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Ambroid-Her...p2047675.l2557

                Great pictures! Did you take enough to model this thing? lots of action for that printer of yours.

                • Tom,

                  I'd probably be better off finding a blueprint to work from. Once I built the first one, the res would be cake. It's like 157 feet tall, so it would take a while to put together one main. But, very doable. I'll have to consider it, for a 'Structures' AP. project.

                  • I'm lucky enough that I live within a reasonable distance to the Strasburg RR. Here is #90 running the Santa Train a few weeks back.

                    • Well, I missed the October Old-Timey gallery as I couldn't locate this photo of a Circus Train on the no longer tracks that were about 150' away from the back edge of my property line.

                      • 2020 track project using 1970s equipment at Seashore Trolley Museum:



                        This is a mid-70s Pettibone MultiKrane MK-36 with hi-rail gear. It's set up to start shifting the #4 panel turnout in front of it into place. Seashore's Restoration Shop is in the background.

                        • I didn't take this picture, but I wish I did.
                          This is one of our trains on the Raritan Line at NJ Transit.
