"Boiler Buster" Keys, the engineer on SV-20, was not very happy when he went by the Twin Junction Station today. When the hind end got up to the station we can see why.
The inclusion of the scale test car, ahead of the caboose, restricts the speed to 30 MPH by time table directive.The spaghetti and beer at Armonds, in Rouses Point, will have to be delayed for awhile.
It had to happen sooner or later: The O&W stuff sees the light after a slumber dating back to 1990. I've had the layout set up for D&H and LV (1960) since last spring and I just needed a change. I haven't been into model building of late and spending a day changing things out helped keep me connected to the hobby. What you're viewing is my 1955 scenario. I'd love to get out all my O&W steam power for a WWII set-up but, I don't have anywhere near enough vehicles for that time period. I need a minimum of sixty and can only count half that number as usable. Sylan has what I need and I have built a few. It takes a real commitment do do them. I think I'm only good for one or 2 a year. I hope Classic Metal Works takes my survey response to heart.
I won't be sending out another "Chapter" before Christmas and New Year's. So, I take this opportunity to wish you all the best for the Holiday's
Great night shot at Plattsburgh
