Start Foaming..Lets See the STEAM!!!

We are one's who re-create the days gone by, the ones who stop at the crossing to see the train go by!  We fly to L.A. not to see the movie stars but to take a ride behind 3751.  One a ski trip to Colorado we think of the Narrow Gage railroad and the fact that Cheyenne is not too far away. 

We are the Foamers!  Lets see you Steam!

Love the start SuperT!  Can you beat NP steam?  No...  I've got a few but we'll start with a little helper action on Bozeman Pass.  I originally processed these in black and white but thought the fall colors were nice.

Here's my Bachmann Light Mountain decaled for the Soo Line.  I need to swap out the trailing truck for the correct Delta version.

Beautiful work by all. The GN northern came out great Jason, and the FEF's are really fine too. But.......
Being of the Santa Fe all the Way lineage, I'll ALWAYS think that the two SF 3765 class beauties you made for me is your best work.

Here is a token shot of my steamer I did back in the early 1990s. I mostly work on the innards of steam loco models but  that is not very photogenic.  :|

It is a an old ConCor Rivarossi loco. I added some details (like feedwater heater and piping, handrails and a number board). Decals were IIRC by Northeast Decals and I lightly weathered it (I'm not big on weathering).

WOW!  I'm speechless!  :o  Is that really N scale? Looks like a real 1:1 scale scene!
