 Thanks guys, I do appreciate your comments.
Below, pics of another hot train going up Cajon Pass: a GFX (Green Fruit Express) with cars for Chicago and beyond. Erie fast freight was the preferred way of getting California produce from Chicago to the eastern markets...
I do need to get more scenery done to get rid of the "snow"..
Fun stuff :D

And here we are, exiting Summit, and about to drop down the east slope towards Barstow (staging). The dynamics are kicking in as we approach the exit of the modeled part of the railroad at Lugo...
That's Perspiration Peak above the eighth reefer. Really. Ballast is coming, but only after trackwork and wiring pass testing.

Nothing new or exciting...I've been doing some much needed maintenance and troubleshooting, weighing cars etc. so that I can run trains more reliably. I did decide to invest a little bit into trainroom ambiance and comfort and bought two more adjustable, armless, swiveling "task chairs" that will be needed for fully staffed ops...meanwhile they are useful at my workstations. $83 each at Amazon, next day delivery, not bad. The old broken hand me down chairs are going in the trash...

Ha! Yes, more excitement coming! I pulled out the makings of my circa '49 Chief, a full twelve car consist. The four Pullmans up front are a Pennsy 4-4-2 and two NYC cars, a 4-4-2 and a 10-6 from New York and a pin-stripped Valley 6-6-4 comes from Washington, D.C. via the B&O. The rest are brass cars I acquired over the last 20 years or so. The brass cars still need a lot of work including glazing, but it's nice to see them run behind the BLI PA set. Here it is, westbound approaching Summit. A work in progress...

Thanks, Allen!
I've been quiet, fighting a highly annoying case of Covid; nothing terrible, just whooped and in no mood to do anything but sleep.
In other news, the Santa Fe Bunkhouse kit I mentioned here a while ago is now available for preorder from Right On Track Models, see the Product Discussion section.
I think I need a nap now.... :|

Take it easy and get some rest Otto!
Hope you get it sooner than later.
