    Here's one I took last weekend at the Hoosier Valley Railroad Museum. Hoosier Valley in North Judson, Indiana use to move 125 trains daily with 4 railroads involved. The original tower was torn down, but through the efforts of the Museum folks, the town, and the county, acquired this tower from East Chicago. They were given three days to move the entire tower about 70 miles. They did it! Dismantled and rebuilt it. Enjoy!

    Jim, I wonder what the different colors represent on the throws? nice pic'.

    • Ted,

      The 'Tower Master' said that the 4 colors were linked to the tracks of the 4 lines that passed through. The Pennsy was the big hitter and represented by the blue levers. Definitely a two handed pull to throw those levers.

              • Nice. Thanks Jim, For some reason, it looks like a much larger building from the inside'..There is something about towers that I find interesting in their construction and appearance'..

                • Some photo’s I shot a few years back during one of my motorcycle trips of Southwest logging locomotive #12, logging car and ATSF caboose which are on display at the Arizona Historical Society Pioneer Museum on AZ route 180 north of Flagstaff Arizona. http://www7.nau.edu/his/publichistor...ocomotive.html

                  • Denny, thanks for sharing. It looks like the Arizona weather is treating her well.

                    • Nice shots Denny, Always a treat to see those articulated engines. Even better seeing equipment that hasn't been vandalized by taggers.

                      • As part of our article on scratchbuilding gons http://cwrailman.com/CW%20Gons/CW%20Gons.htm

                        I posted several images of D&RGW gons in various conditions of disrepair. I believe I posted a link to that article previously but some may not frequent that thread so I am posting the images here. These are photographs of D&RGW gons seen and photographed in Silverton Colorado. We offer a free download of images of these and other gon details for the modeler to use as when building their models. Since much of the hardware used in building these gons was similar to that used for standard gauge cars of a similar time period we used the Narrow Gauge hardware when scratchbuilding our gons.http://cwrailman.com/CW%20Gons/DRGWGons.zip

                        • Here is a tank car I photographed in Williams Arizona while I was on one of my motorcycle trips. If you are interested in modeling this car we provided a zip file of images of this car showing many of the details such as the saddles etc.

                          • The last Ringling Brothers circus move to Manchester, NH yesterday. Pan Am Railways brought out their Official Train FP-9s (ex Conway Scenic, ex Via Rail, exx CN?). This drew a lot of fans, and since the trip was about 45 miles on 10 MPH track, there was a crowd at every grade crossing.



                            Coming around the wye at Ayer, Mass. Leaving the old Worcester, Nashua & Portland line for a mile of the former Fitchburg RR, then onto the Stoney Brook Branch.
