SR&CL Ry Trains out and about

Postby tom c » Tue Dec 07, 2010 3:22 pm

We had a nice Sunday in November so used #7 to haul some wood. Pic 2, More wood waiting to go up the hill. Pic 3, Then some empties back down with the brakeman at the brake wheel ready to help keep the speed in check.

This winter there hasn't been very much snow to plow but we did take it out twice so far. Here it is stopped at the driveway to clear the flange way of ice before we crossed.

Nice photo's Tom. The whole thing looks like a lot of fun. What gauge track is that? 7 1/2 by any chance? Looks bigger than that, but just wondering.

Those engines appear to be a lot larger than my 7.5" clishay that I haven't done anything with since it was given to me.
The also appear to be a lot more powerful. I doubt that the thing I have could move much more than itself.
But then, I've never had it fired up either.
I plan to get rid of it, but not sure how yet.

Hi Mark, our engines and cabooses are stretched about 12 inches in height from scale so we can get in. All our cars are built to 3.75 scale.

List your engine on Discover Live Steam.

I'll bet that snow plow saw a lot of use this winter! Wish we had gotten some of that snow. Nearly nothing at all around here.
