The track gang has been hard at work inspecting the new track and removing old ties.

Yes!  Track down!  Go, Philip, go!  I want to see video of KCS trains running . . . hopefully, soon.  That's a cool MoW train you've got there.

That is the wonderful sound of Retro Goodness!  I remember putting the decoder in that thing... I've got one apart on my desk right now, and I can't for the life of me remember where I hid the damn thing!

Definitely no need for a sound card with that old Roco/EMD 567 simulator!

Good to see the commerce of the nation finally getting underway down there on the coast!


I couldn't find a shot of the GP30, but here's a couple of her sisters that also came to the Laurel Valley Back Shops for some brain surgery...  Hope to see these grinding their way around the yard soon, too!

Milestone!  Congrats! 

I admit, the sound made me laugh, but it's great to see.  :lol:
