    Phil ....yea not getting it for that exact reason was why I waited . But ya see , it's got PRR on it . A mere mortal like myself just can't let a good engine down . Funny thing is my younger days of modeling HO . That was the battle between my father and I . And I was the gloss guy . Still ....I can say I'm vary happy with both the Q2 and C1 . Plus the 060 that's free and cars .

    I'm trying to find a way of putting a passenger station on a grades . Is this possible ? And dose anyone know of any good poling car's ? Pennsy prefers .

    Anyone know when the Icing plant at Hunting lasted too . And on that note was there an Engine house there ?

    Matt

    PS Phil ...... That's a nice dock switcher

    Your route is a Masterpiece Sir I've always enjoyed seeing Pennsy or your route and the other roads on it . Fantastic shots . Looks like you've got some well done custom cars as well . Just wish they came with sound .

    On an unusually warm Fall Saturday afternoon, with traffic sparce on the Northeast Corridor, a pair of PRR E-44 "Bricks" gingerly back a load of tank car empties from Baltimore onto the yard throat at the Marcus Hook, PA refinery. Care must be taken as the throat is not electrified, so a long string of boxcars are being used as as "reachers," to move the tank cars off the main and partially into the yard.





    On the other end, a huge PRR Transfer switcher waits for the consist to be cut loose by the GE-44s before pulling them further into the transfer yard for sorting and delivery.

    Railwoodman,
    I love the variety of engines. They look really neat, and the trackwork looks super.

    In many photos of PRR yards, you can see all sorts of different classes getting lined up ready for the work day. The yards are positively smoked in. Your shots above really remind me of those photos.

    Altoona is looking very nice, and yes, you've earned some time to play.

    Awesome work, Matt, I know what its like to work on a monster route like that. Seeing those blank base boards reminds me of the early days of the L&A. Stick with it as it is worth it in the end.
