A little less conversation, a little more action…

Here’s another of our youtube clips, a SOO SD40-2 leads a CP Rail SD40-2 (in an SD45 carbody) north onto the street running with a unit steel coil train. Enjoy!


Alco high-hood switcher from Atlas?

An interesting post from the Milepost 15 blog showing a pre-production Alco high-hood switcher from Atlas! Neat, would make a superb grain silo switcher.

The link is here, it’s worth looking back through the other posts as well, the Railflyer EMD parts look to be an intriguing way of building a loco.


Southbound Conrail manifest

A GE hauled Conrail train crosses the diamond and heads onto the street running section, sharp-eyed viewers might spot the covered hopper that derails mid train, we had been having problems with the switch moving under trains!

Exeter Show

Thanks to you all for the kind comments and support at the Exeter show at the weekend, we still had a couple of “holes” in the scenery and we had some niggly technical issues with points and the like, but we still appear to have been well received.

Neil Rogers took some photo’s on the Sunday which can be found here.

Keep checking the blog over the next few days for links to photo’s and maybe a few bits of video as well!
