Some Derby City Express Photos
« on: July 01, 2008, 11:49:56 AM »
Took this shot of the Louisville & Indiana (ex PRR) bridge across the Ohio River:

The Belle of Louisville. It sailed without us, my wife and I got off after hearing the band before we sailed.

The R. J. Corman Dinner Train, which we rode for lunch Thursday:

Now for modules on the World's Largest Layout - strictly by personal preference:

I liked this urban scene:

This crane, from Great Lakes Ntrak, actually picks up scrap with a magnet and loads the gondolas. Neat to watch.

A busy harbor scene, with a large Cleveland Cliffs ore carrier:

I really liked the look of this module from Mt. Ranier NTrak. It came a long way, too!

The amount of scale lumber, and the work involved, is truly amazing.

The  interiors of the stores on this module have blue white LED's as flourescents and the interior detail is amazing.

This is one of the Northern Virginia Onetrak modules that impressed me and actually managed to get a photo of a train leaving the tunnel.

The eclectic mix of structures impressed me here. It is really a very realistic factory. The two Kato Mikados were the first test run on that loop.

This one's for Ed and Sean. 'Nuf sed.

The very impressive Sugarland, TX, module of Russell Straw. Great to see it in person.

An impressive ore dock, loaders, and boat. No doubt as to the owner-builder.

This one's unusual with its three track viaduct - elevated railway going right through a building.

Hope y'all enjoy the photos.

Oh yeah, I know those Philly modules quite well.

Did you see his Tastycake factory?

Of all those, only seen the Sugarland modules in person, in San Antonio.

Nice crane, and that triple-track viaduct scene too. Thanks Gregg.
