Sorry for getting such an early jump on things, I have a long day ahead of me away from the ol'puter.  A couple of shots from Mechanicville, NY in the early days of Guildford.

T3 No. 713 has just come in off a run for servicing at Willard, OH:


T3 No. 714 on the ready track at Willard, OH, with a "Big Six" on the next track over:


Next week, found more Brooklyn Eastern District Terminal photos.

Honestly don't remember.  It's been awhile and I forgot these photos existed until a month ago.

Already have.  These are all slides I had converted into a CD.  Just for the fun of it here's an old navy photo when I was 23 taken in Singapore.  This slide got into my CD by mistake.  You can start laughing now!!!!

I'm almost positive that second photo is from Sykesville; looks like it was taken from in front of Baldwin Station.

I'm paying Bob to put those up to get you over this Rock thing.  Fireballs and Black Diamonds, baby...  The only way to go!

Oh yeah?!?!? Not sure that will happen there tough guy.  ;D

I just broke down this week and bought two Rock GP-38's that I had been watching on Ebay for months. Not sure what the total count is up to now, but that RI roster is pretty impressive! Once I unpack everything after my upcoming move, I will try to inventory it all.


WM boasts only one loco in my inventory, a cheapo Bachmann Gp40 that was a gift to me. Now I 'd like to make it a gift to someone else.
