Re: Frisco Lead Line Ore Train
Concrete ties are horrible!!! We had them in the old Atlantic Coast Line yard just south of the James River Bridge and they were awful. Absolutely no give. You felt every little imperfection in the track and made the GP's rough handling. I hated working the switchbacks there. My butt doesn't forget the rough ride it received compliments of those concrete ties. I have to say that concrete ties were a dismal failed experiment. Give me regular ties any day!
Nice picture of the cutout. Not only does the picture give good perception on the GP7's for you powered boxcar guys, but the landscaping can be mimicked easily with foam and a cutting knife. Awesome stuff. Keep it coming.
