YOU REALLY GET A SENSE OF HOW SMALL THIS LOCO IS WHEN YOU LOOK AT THE PEOPLE WOODIE HAS AROUND THE LOCO AREA.. 

I HAD NO IDEA IT WAS THIS SMALL.

Mike- I do hope you realize that the figures are 1:35 scale.
The loco is still small, just as it should be for a 30" gauge locomotive in 1:48 scale.

After I posted the reply, I thought to myself, I bet Woodie used 1.32 / 1.35 figures with that loco.......

If he did I will be corrected by him.


Sure enough, I was right.

Woodie

Number 7 looks very cool.  She has come up a treat.

Great job as usual sort of stuff I would struggle with.  My wife tells me I am to neat.

Mike- actually, I guess that I should have placed 1:48 figures near the loco, she is still a little one however.

Rod- a little dirt is all I wanted, this is the "new" loco and the crews are proud of her.

Oil is cheaper than metal.*
Tip top 'n' Bristol ol' boy.

They never told Rosa's crew...
...cleaning rags are cheaper than oil.

*( perhaps not circa. 60 years later in 2012 ! )

Cheers

WOW !!!

That was Sept. 2012 ...
... now it's Sept. 2013
(1 year older & not the least bit wiser...
...me; that is !)

How's the grime build-up; after a year of South-West mining action ?

The new 'wood-frame' tender (with cut flare)...
...& MKII cab (you were right; the first wasn't)...
...you def. got 'the look' NAILED yet again Woodie.





I dunno how you do it ?

The Mogollon shops, just 'go-for-it' I guess...
...the quicker done...
...the sooner down The Bloated Goat; right ?!

Cheers

Si.

Got any more pix. in the last 12 months Woodie ?
How about a Mogollon yard, to smelter railfan trip ?

I bet she 'rattles the panes' in the new monorail office...
...as she blasts past on the mainline !





(jeeez, the Fans ARE demanding, aren't they !)

Si- pix are coming soon in the Mogollon thread.

My camera has been visiting Germany with Pam and I am working on new sections
AND it has been HOT AS HELL here so I just get out on the bike and ride to cool off.

Patience, patience, patie...awww nuts!

Woodrow, Si, Mike.... fellers....

I am trolling around looking for things of interest.

I bought the Sundance Gilpin book....
alot of new {to me} fotos and I enjoy the shots of the track / ROW...inspirational.

My own efforts are in restoring the Standard gauge switching line along the Tidewater, the western tidewater.
This is where the ores from the Muggy own are shipped..so it is on topic....
Spot on... Si would say.... from Burm n am' or where ever he is...

Charley, I had to eat Ramen and beans for a while after I bought that book...
but it was WELL worth it.

Maybe a book review is in order, we do have a forum for that.
