Upon a special request we opened up the train club tonight to run trains for a bunch of cubbies that
never seen anything like it before. Most of them think in terms of 4 x 8 plywood empire but not a
25 x 60 room room filled with so much scenery and stuff.
I brought out my Union Pacific 4-8-8-4 Big Boy pulling a work train while Jack Pappas had his little
engine pulling a short way freight.
Don Carnegie had Burt's little 4-4-0 up on the Green industrial branch so they could see a steamer
running over the big wood bridges on the layout.
Finally new member Jack took his modern diesels up to the Green Branch to see if clearances would
handle his train
Usually we have had little steamers or 4 axle diesels up here but these guys seem to be pushing their luck.
Kind of a dramatic angle for this shot looking down the Red main under the bridge and the Blue main
to the right. This spot is the first thing people will see when they come in the door. Not too shabby!
Looking the other direction we see the 2 main lines clearly to show separation and challenge for members
run different routes on the layout. The main thing we try is to have fun with this marvelous hobby.
