Thursday night turns out to be a good steam night!

We start out showing off Jim Bowden's new Canadian National 4-6-2 Pacific running the red line past the Titanic Ice plant. Must be right out of the factory?
Making its debut last night was Marvin's miniature version of the MRL executive passenger train that visited Spokane 2 months ago. I painted the blue stripes for him and they await the decals plus a observation car yet to be completed.
The power is a brand new SD70 right out of the wash rack to pull the president of the line around his empire in Montana.
New member Janis showed up with an eastern railroad model in the form of a Norfolk and Western 4-8-4 pulling a passenger car fleet.
Steve Wessolowski had another special train on the rails as this one is a BN big shot train surveying
the property to see what they can remove from the tax rolls. A big building in Fort Worth is where I would start.
Jimmy Bowden likes Santa Fe as well as Alaska RR and these yellow F units were in vogue for a time on the railroad. You never know what is going to show up on any given night! Does anyone know why they used yellow when they had a winner with red?
