Just once I am going to send out the photos without the alteration of steam and smoke plugging up the skies around the Evergreen Railroad Modelers club. New member Calvin brought in this beautiful SD45 he just got from Sunset Junction Hobby Shop at a very good price. Even the Union Pacific would be proud to own this one.
Jimmy Bowden had his Santa Fe Northern making the rounds with his ice reefer train. Looking good in the mountains! Or is it the Plains?
It looked good and sounded terrific. Sounds has made modeling go from black and white to Technicolor! I'm starting to miss the smoke and steam?
Mike Baker took time out from his schedule to run his GN/BN mixed freight on the line. Now that I have seen the future, I miss the BN !
Last but certainly not least was this UP 4-6-6-4 Challenger in passenger scheme grey making time on the Blue line. If I'm correct the UP had a series of passenger cars in grey with yellow stripes that ran from Portland, Oregon to Green River, Wyoming, maybe beyond that. Several of you are already writing a response! What did you think of the blog report? 180,000 people see this stuff!
