    Err, Norm, it does look rather, how shall I say it, empty?

    Louisville & Nashville train #293 the afternoon fast freight from Chicago to Louisville "clickty clacks" along over the jointed rail knocking down a clear signal on the semaphores at East Campbellsburg, Indiana. It's hot and hazy and thunderstorms are building quickly as the train races ahead of the front through the rural southern Indiana countryside on the former Chicago, Indianapolis & Louisville RR...better known simply as, the Monon.

    Cheers,
    Woody

    Have you been to Montana-Wyoming recently?

    And, as I said in the release thread, the lack of scenery assets allows more trains. (I have four consists of 8 locomotives + 150 cars running so far)

    I've been to that area of Wyoming and i can definitely agree, it is very much wide open spaces in every direction.

    norm --

    "Have you been to Montana-Wyoming recently?"

    Recently? Nope. In fact, never. Possibly the closest is a few years ago in autumn heading north out of Albuquerque. That was damn boring too. It was much more interesting passing through Silverton on the way to Telluride and then back through Dolores a few days later. The autumn colours were absolutely stunning. A wonderful experience.

    Yup, nothing but miles and miles of nothing but miles and miles.

    I can't travel anymore and boy I sure miss it. Ah well I still have the memories.

    On loan to RP&P, a pair of Cross Creek GP40-2s sit at Parker after loading a string of coal hoppers.


    After navigating part of the river valley, the two GP40-2s venture onto the little used spur that formerly lead to Gilbert's Tipple, now used to store out of service rolling stock.


    Having collected all of the stored wagons, the two GP40-2s growl out of the spur. With some of the wagons having sat for some time, they will be taken back to Richmond for servicing and thorough checks before being placed back into service.

    It's a cold foggy morning deep in Appalachia as the L&A's coal train #147 rolls through Nada KY. The passengers are waiting for one of the local commuters due in a few minutes to head into Levi for work.

    Late in the day, restored SLRR S1 2604 and 2950/2951 and accompanying B-units rest up beside one of the many shops along the network for a brief photoshoot. They'll make their way down to the corporate headquarters later in time for the holidays if all goes according to plan.

    On a side note, did anyone else know I had done ACe's and GEVOs in SLRR ph. 3? I made them and i didn't even know. This raises a lot of questions, doesn't it?

    Cheers,
    SM
