No, I don't mean Ralph Thomas, although that would be nice, I mean Thomas the Tank Engine of British television fame! This time Jim Bowden installed sound and it sounds terrific like a real live American engine.
Worthy of a little Photoshop, I added a little smoke to Jim's magnificent Santa Fe 4-8-4 departing the Blue Yard in search of mountains to climb and rivers to cross.
Jim's third train he ran on Saturday was his 3 unit Union Pacific F3 EMD set pulling his all UP freight.
Northern Pacific was also represented with this 2 unit GP9 set but I don't remember who locos they were?
Spike Gorley usually runs Canadian power but Saturday his BNSF units took the center stage.
