Mount Morgan, Queensland, Australia - 1953:

B18 891 (Product of Railway Workshops No.182, Ipswich, 1941) stands by the Mount Morgan Coalstage while the crew await the arrival of the shunt engine to mount the stage with V or VJ 4 wheeled coal hoppers.

... and now for something completely different, looked at my TANE route and thought it would be nice to have a North American subject this week.

While CN 4706 waits patiently for clearance, Officer Peabody waits patiently for Billy Bob in his new pickup truck.

Plenty of locos powered up at Eastbrook Yard now. Train of empties lead by a Silver Lines EF4 passes by the fully loaded coal train being hauled on by Boxcabs with new experimental parts inside.

Roy3b3I just imported my US layout with the swamp in it from TS12, I don't think I'll continue with it though, there is just to much to fix. Apart from change in water colour and environmental settings, and replacing trees, there is no post processing. The swamp part is probably the most complete of all the layout. Here is just the swamp bit with track island-hopping through it and a small town and yard mid-top.

There's the good old Rio Grande with everyday diesels, and then, there's the classic Rio Grande that everybody reminisces to.

:D :D The NZ government is bringing back the steam and ditching the diesel and electric. Electric cannot run with the hard frost on the wires and diesel too expensive compared with the coal which is in the country. The Ka's and Ab's are getting a makeover. The Kanawha is on loan......................

Believe me? :hehe:

Oh yours is great too, I love those D&RGW Geeps, I frequently use 3103 on my D&RGW local in Trainz. And speaking of NG looking right it took me over 3 hours to get the camera in the right spot ( and it still could be a little more to the right but Trainz randomly crashed then after I took the photo I entered. I included a little more train for viewers to see as well.) The steam and smoke took forever to cooperate.

I actually prefer the DRGW diesels. The NG steam doesn't really feel like NG to me. It feels too "mainline". For me, NG should be a 2-4-2T with tools, rope, and barrels on the pilot pulling 3 disconnects with link and pin couplers with a shack built on a bogey at the end.

Sorry for the double post but it's been awhile since I last posted.

The Dereford Eastern "Stealth Job" is waiting for the conductor to finish brushing the snow off the ground with the switch broom so the tow truck (not in frame) can pull the car out of the ice. I wonder what the engineer on the step is looking at? This train is called the Stealth Job for a few reasons.
1) It operates at night
2) It is pretty short and fast (A heating oil tank car, a sulphur tank car, and 2 empty flour hoppers, a transfer caboose and 2 engines)
3) Some crossings it crosses are silent at night.
4) It usually has 2420 or 2421 which are U-boats, and U-boat is a term for submarine.

Why can't I have 5 choices? They are all so great.
But, if I have to;

eso, I can feel the ground shake as that Union Pacific consist roars toward me. I love your forested mountains.
felix, great detailing in the water and the wetlands. Love the two waterfowl in the lower left corner. What are they, loons or grebes? I gotta get those.
And last, but not least, iannz, I'm a sucker for water scenes and yours is calendar worthy.

Also a shout out to ARhian 7 and Epoche3bis4 . You gents really make me feel like I am there.
