Santa Fe-All the Way railroad got it latest engine #2926 from the Tomball Locomotive Works (superturbine-Jason). Company photographers caught it a couple times heading eastbound thru Kingman Canyon at the front of a GFX (Green Fruit Express) en-route to Chicago. Photos were taken from Route 66-the mother road.

What an awesome scene Gordon!  I second the previous poster about having more scenery than track....looks great.

Thanks for the comments guys, the scene is only 18" deep and 30 feet long but that is what N-scale is all about!!!!!!!!! The HO guys drool all over themselves when the 38 car tank train rolls through during a session! Bruce your close but Jason I and met up at the San Jacinto show in Stafford, Tx on Saturday so it went way south before heading to my railroad...HAHA!!! and I need to see if the warranty is still good if Lineman Jason used bad superglue on that pole!!!!!!! ANOTHER FINE STEAM ENGINE FROM TOMBALL LOCOMOTIVE WORKS!!!!!!!!!!! :D  Gordon
