And here is the real deal, Andy.

ES44AC #5760 is about to set off from the Roberts Bank coal terminal on its way to Wyoming with a train of empty coal hoppers. Almost certainly passing through Wenatchee.



Halloween is well and truly over for us here in Oz. Haven't been taken down by any ghosts or goblins luckily.

OK guys, just a little update on what I've been doing.

I tried to build a flickering camp fire simulation from circuit board, resistors and electric tee lights with miserable results.  So, I bought one instead, and installed it in the new improved hobo camp.  Not sure if you can put videos on the Forum, so there's a photo below, instead.

Also, I thought I'd post a NS Heritage unit photo, opposite the Patriot Banners and Flags factory at Blue Haven.

Finally, I've been putting up some new LEDs and bulbs around the layout.  I still think I need a lot more.  However, one of the new ones was put up on the platform at the old South Pine depot, now the "All Aboard" restaurant.  What better way to spend an evening but having a nice meal with your loved one, a couple of cold ones and then dragging her outside into the cold November air to witness a train arriving into the yard?

Great photos, Andy!!

Hobo guys have a shed now. And it looks better than my closet!!
With bonfire, they are OK for cold nights.
Which one is screaming Arthur? I want to meet him very much!!

Nice heritage units with an old(?) reliable H&HRR GP15.

You know what I'm going to say, right?
More pictures please!!!

Hi Dats

Yes, the hobos are all set up to battle the Winter cold with their little brick hut.  It also has a little stove in it, so they don't need to cook their baked beans over the camp fire.  You can see the glow from the stove through the hut's window.  I'm sure with six of them in residence, it's quite a squeeze to get everyone in there at one time!  Surely they take it in turns to sleep....?

Screaming Arthur is the one behind the bench, nearest to the privvy!  He got the nickname many years ago, when for a lark, some of his fellow hobos put a mouse under his blanket while he was asleep, and he wouldn't stop shrieking for an hour!  Even now, his mental stability is in question.

The MHRR use GP15-1 locos for their switching.  They are common up and down the railroad from Ohio to Colorado.  There are 39 of them still in MHRR service.  Another eleven are in storage.

Ha ha ha  :laughabovepost: good stuff, Andy!
I want to be just like screaming Arthur when I grow up.
I'll move to Cherry Valley when I retire.
My mental health is pretty similar with his. So I can fit in right away.

And you know what I'm going to say again right?
More _______ please!!
