Howdy Daniel, I'm still here but these days I would rather work on my layout and run trains...photos and thread updates aren't my priority right now. 
I will try to send something "new" when I feel like it. I have a feeling that some are tired of my drivel anyway.
I'm glad to see you here where your artistry can be appreciated.
Take care...

Woodie

Dear Woodie

I can understand you think that some are tired of your drivel ... 

I warned you: abuse of alcohol can cause the mind to go crazy and think such things. :bang:

But it is good that you take your freedom to post whenever you feel to do so.

At my island you, your comments and certainly your work are always welcome.

Daniel

Howdy Daniel...no, there's no alcohol abuse with me, it was abusive enough when I was a younger dude! 
However, here are a couple of "employees" on the tender of #5 "watching" the backing operation"...






And they are drinking in front of the Supt. at the engine house!
Now, a new operation for those who want to "see the sights"of the Big Bend-the Gila Tram. 
The employees are cleaning up in preparation for the day's "flood" of tourists!











The tram has an ancient REO touring car modified to become a tour "bus" with an open air body and old Model T car seats. 
The mechanic is working on the radiator.
Background scenery includes the famous "window" rock and a view of the incredible garage door.

Presumably the steeds are being limbered up in case the radiator can't be fixed and a different type of horsepower is needed to get the old tourist bus moving!:old dude:

Thanks Bill. I have been furiously working on something new...a wax factory. 

In the 1900's, the Bend had several "factories" which "rendered" wax from the candelaria plant. 
The wax was used in lubricants, candles(duh!), polishes, and...CHEWING GUM! 
It is still sought after today for scented candles sold to fru-fru upwardly mobile noveau-rich millennials and other such snoot in the air types. 
And yes, they still use it for CHEWING GUM! 

When I post some pix, I will relate more info (or an internet search can inform) about the wax and my model of a factory. 
NOTE- this is not an on-line industry served by the narrow gauge, the plants are brought in on burros and barrels of wax are sent out in old Model TT trucks. 

Geez, I gotta get a life!

WCG

Be nice if those Model TT trucks could match the locos and be RCd as Giles Favell does with his vehicles!
