Nice work. The geep looks great.
very fitting very fitting in deed.
Nice everything - GP7,, passenger cars, depot, track & roadbed, people, scenery, background, scene. Wow!
What passenger cars did you use? What GP7 model is that?
Ken, the passenger cars are Athearn (BB) relettered, GP 7 is a 1st run Proto 2k painted & decaled, Webster Groves depot was scratch built, all done by me.
Thank You everyone for your kind gestures on " A Salute to Veterans Day".
Keep our thoughts & prayers for all our veterans, those that perished, served and serving our country on Veterans Day.
John, that is really nice work!! Gotta love that b/y and all those stripes. Thanks for posting. Larry
Nice! Looks real.
John, that is really some nice work! Larry
Good looking train and nice locomotive consist. This may have been addressed before, John, but where did you get your searchlight signals?
Those are great shots!
Have you posted other photos of your layout??
The searchlight signals are from Oregon Rail. These where the kit version. Fully assembled version are available.
Yes, go to FMIG/layouts, freelance, under geep07!
There's some "feel good" stuff!
John, would you please tell us the link to your layout photos on FMIG? I did a search and all I got was medical websites. Of course, maybe that's what I need because I'm a 60 years old man still playing with choo-choos. LOL
Joe, a couple places. Go to search at upper right corner, type in valley park and your name in the appropriate slot. Click on the title of each category marked (geep07).
Go to Forums, go to FMIG layouts, go to Freelance, look for threads started by geep07, these are more or less updates to the layout.
The pictures in the Valley Park search are prior to the details I have added to the layout as of present.
Love these little hoppers...in the last photo I see a quad-4-bay hopper, did Frisco ever have these? If so what were the numbers? Don't get me wrong I'm not nit-picking, just I always wanted one but did know how to do one up. I think it would look great mixed in with 88000-series 100-ton hoppers on the Pokey.
I recall seeing many "Coal Extras" running north out of Fort Smith back in the mid-70's and they looked a lot like that: Frisco twin bay coal hoppers from the various classes. Of course, the F's were gone by then. Typically the "Coal Extra's" of which I refer were powered by a quartet of b&y and o&w GP7's.
While we're asking question: What mfg'er made the F's?
