Herb-great eyes! Yes, you have won the pitnicker's special with the observations! I built the bike that way just so I could get some comments. Whatcha think about that? In "reality", the bikes (there are 4 more models) are some very nice 1:32 scale jobs by NEW RAY. This company also has some 1:50 (close enuff for O scale) vechicles which are decently priced-the bikes are about 4 bucks retail. I will have a serious talk with those builders in Peking about the serious "faux paws" and transgression for the muffler on the wrong side. Yep, I will get right on that...BTW-this company also makes Vespa scooters in 1:32, but I can't bring myself to add these to the Mogollon scene. Please excuse the dark looking scenery behind the bar, in sunlight, this looks vastly brighter and I still need to add bushes, weeds, and some trees that have grown up over the years.Not shown is the MRy's "hi line" just above the downtown; the Gila Hotel still has damage from an early Model T railcar which came off the track while doing about 85 smph and hit the old hotel. That earlier railcar (like the previous Model TT truck) fell into the concrete canyon and became parts again. I digress...

  Have fun & write something funny sometime.

Mr Greene-

company also makes Vespa scooters

If the great John Allen could have a Dinosaur pulling freight cars, I think that you could get away with Pancho Villa on a Vespa hiding behind a billboard waiting to catch those 85 mph model T's on their way to the floor!

Grumpy, from Glen Mills:old dude:

Herb-you know that I am too much a nitpicker to allow Pancho on a Vespa. Maybe driving a Porsche, but never on a Vespa! Imagine what havoc old Pancho could have caused along the border if his gang drove Porsches, they just might have made it to Penna.!!! By the way, the girls of the Gila Hotel will soon have their photos in Play-Boy magazine, on the back page, covered with a Manilla envelope...

Mr Allen's "work-bronto #13" was indeed real. However, the animal was not a brontosaurus(?) but rather a stegasaurus(?) as I "remember". There was an engineer riding atop the creature which was used to switch cars around. Needless to say, the critter wasn't powered, such things were not possible 50 years ago. I have seen small robotic dinosaurs being messed with by crafty Japanese modelers, one of these could probably be used to "update" Mr Allen's creation in the 21st century. If such a thing appears on the US market, I will have one on my layout. The Mogollon Railway already has a tracked vechicle in service to move ore cars in the yard, modeled to represent a "Cletrac" tractor. I will send a pix of this later.

Don-not only was Mr Allen's layout before dcc, it was before many of the things we take for granted. I do feel that if he were still around, Mr Allen would be using dc, he had so many locomotives that it would cost MUCHO DINERO (big big bucks) to equip them all.

                             later, ya'll... Woodie

Gee Woodie do you think so?

He was Mr. Cutting edge, when it came to realisim...I can't see him NOT wanting sound in his locos.  Just My Humble opinion.

Bronto? Sterasaru?---At least it wasn't a Herbasaurus!
