Took a few photos yesterday of Fox Valley's Hiawatha on the modules and on the table top. I should have the rest of the photos done today, but here are a few. Right click on them and open them in a new window to see them full size.









Ok, finished editing. You can find the rest HERE

Nice Jamie.  You have a gift for setting the mood with lighting.

Great photos Jamie! Matt should hire you to do his publicity shots.

Best wishes, Dave

Those are HAWT!  DO you have any intentions of publication?  Surely there will be something in there even MR would take.

Very well composed. I can feel the breeze rippling the grasses,  hear the click-clacks and, smell the coal burning.

Being a Milwaukee Road shot, that should get it past the first couple cuts in Wauwatosa.

Excellent photos! I agree with you, Blazeman, except that I smell oil burning!  :)

Minor point but the vast anti-N Scale conspiracy is currently being run out of Waukesha.  ;)
Wauwatosa is actually a great spot to photograph trains, and was frequented by Kalmbach, Westcott, Morgan, etc. It would make a great Mod-U-Trak module.
Here is a shot showing some lease power on the Milwaukee. http://www.railpictures.net/viewphoto.php?id=269097&nseq=12
And the Hiawatha. http://www.coffeedrome.com/images/hiawathawells.jpg

On the other hand, the part of Waukesha were Kalmbach is located is a soulless collection of box stores and franchise restaurants. I leave you to draw your own conclusions.

Best wishes, Dave

Could we as a group just stop making the kind of comment like seen above? No offense Iain, many people make similar references, but there are other ways of saying I really, really like it.
One easy test is "Could you say/have said this same thing out loud in front of your mother or your kids"?

Best wishes, Dave

Edit: Thanks

Yeah, yeah... Mike just brought that to my attention. That's why I should have cracked open Jim Scribbins book first. :)

Jamie,

How would you describe the distance between the cars? The vestibules don't seem to be touching...is there air there?

The "normal" distance between the cars is pretty good, however there is quite a bit of slack in the couplers that permit a lot of forward and back movement which obviously affects the distance between the cars. Are they prototypical? No, but I haven't seen anything yet that is outside of modifying them.

What you see in the photos is the distance between them as I moved it around to photograph things. If I backed it up then the slack was taken up. If I moved it forward the slack lengthened between them.
