Nice ! I may get one for my display shelf.

Some shots I took from Lenny Harlos's layout the current owner of Suffern Hoboken Interstate Transfer ( a link to Lenny's site http://thoroughbredrrmodels.com )




And a few shots I took from Bruce Freidmen's modern day CSX philly division layout ( a link to his site http://chessiesystem.com/Model_Railroading.html )



Lenny looking at the 3 deck layout looking for inspiration for his own layout

I got off my lazy rear end and did this:


:P I think it's pretty good, but could still use a little more grime.

In case you care, it's N Scale.
Done with water based paints, chalk, and some dullcote.
Come see my videos! www.youtube.com/amtrak60

It was actually a C32-8 imported by OMI  which is the 12 cyl cousin of the C39-8.Only 10 C32-8s were built for Conrail.A bunch show up on ebay all the time now for a real decent price.They don't run very well but I'm sure NWSL makes parts to make it a prize runner.I just didn't want to put more work into mine.I over payed for it and in its place now have a nice OMI B23-7 FP for NS

Speaking of B23-7s, here is my some what new engine. Unfortunately I no longer have anything to run this on and my parents won't let to build a shelf layout. Hopefully my roommate and I will have enough room to build one in the fall.

I'm surrounded by idiots

I pulled this beast out of retirement for the HO layout that's going up over the N-Scale Layout. Two layouts under construction at one time. Geez I need help.
