Happy birthday Andy

It would be quite a sight to see all those heritage locos lined up together.

You may get your wish if I can find out how to upload my video to Youtube, now that they've removed their Editor program.  I have taken video of my South Pine Railfan meeting as well as the above photos.  There were eight NS Heritage locos, a UP one, a CSX one and a BNSF one.  The latter two are fantasy colour schemes, but the locos were at the Railfan Day.

OK guys, so I've set up the funeral scene on the layout.  I apologise that the photos are 90 degrees to how they should be!  Cecil is trying to get out of his coffin, while one of the grave diggers is trying to keep him in!  Maud, the widow, is fainting, while Cecil's brother Martin is catching her!  Meanwhile Reverend Allsopp is oblivious, as he's in the middle of one of his patronising sermons!

Hi again guys

Just another couple of photos showing the locomotive I got for my birthday, and the locomotive I purchased last week, both in the yard at South Pine.

Hi Andy

I like the grave yard scene.
A lot of drama going on!

And you got styling locos there!
I'm surprised to see no lettering on CNJ engine. Only the herald on the nose.
What a colour on Kermit loco!
I bet you can see it from far away!!
It's good for grade crossing I think.

Did you change South Pine yard scenery?
I don't remember that those stores. Weren't they at near Cherry Valley where a Giant Eagle?

Anyway, all fantastic work, Andy!!
Two more locos to go?!!

Hi Dats!

My bad.  The location is Blue Haven, not South Pine!  I moved the row of stores closer to the hunting / fishing / welding business, as I dropped a hammer on the basketball court which used to be there, and totally obliterated it!!!!  So, the shops have moved along, and I have a spare lot now to put scenery or another building on.

As for the 1071, you can't see the writing on the loco, as it's a gold colour, and does not show up very well on the blue background.  I noticed this when I was uploading the photos today.

Oh and no, it's now one loco to go.  I need to find 8114 , a Fox Valley Models Gevo in the red, black and orange Norfolk Southern Heritage livery.  Then I'll have all twenty.  They seem to be a rarity to find though.

OK Guys, it's Halloween, so the obvious loco to feature is owned by the orange and black BNSF!

Hi Andy

Nice locos on the layout!
Yes, the colour remind me a pumpkin and a witch.(well, I don't know about "witch" part.)

I'm not modelling anything tonight, I'm just picking my nose as usual. But I picked too deep this time. I just got a bloody nose.


Happy Halloween to Andy and everybody!!

Hi Andy, I always preferred the Orange and Green as it reminded me of the Great Northern Railway





Here's wishing everyone a safe and Happy Halloween  :wave:
Cheers,

I also have a loco in the BNSF green and orange "Pumpkin" livery Rich.  It's on the depot at Cherry Valley this evening.  Perhaps I should have added a photo of this one as well.

Halloween is gone tomorrow.  This signals the arrival of my Thanksgiving box car on the layout!
