Here are a couple photos I shot today...

 
The desert is in bloom as an Alco RS-3n pulls a freight through Serenity Canyon:




In this staged publicity photo for the railroad, a passenger train pauses atop the Serenity Canyon viaduct, while a freight passes below. In the foreground, the "Tin Lizard" railbus rolls through a cut next to the abandoned Monolith Mine:



 
Enjoy!

Sun comes up early there! Very nice Spring scene and fun publicity photo. Always good to see the In-ko-pah.

Still haven't had time to do any modeling, but here are a few more recent photos…

Multiple crossings over Serenity Canyon:

A train passes through the town of Mineral Ridge:




Enjoy!

So nice. Do you at least bring the trains inside after hours?

Yeah, I bring in the locos, railbus and passenger cars. The freight cars get parked inside a tunnel.

Fix the distortion on that last one and desaturate it a bit and one would be hard pressed to say it was a model!

I really think pictures like these help to keep your motivation going.

I had a little time today to put up a few more pics...



Here's the ore bin at the Princess Shilo Mine:





A freight train pulled by a steam locomotive passes through the town of Dos Manos:



 

Here's a close up view of structures at the Cliffside Mine. On the left is the powder magazine, where explosives are kept. On the right is the wooden ore bin:



 

An old stone cabin at the ruins of the Monolith Mine:



 

And here's the interior of the cabin. A 55-gallon drum has been turned into a crude wood-burning stove:



 

Also, yesterday we finally replaced our flimsy, canvas-topped gazebo with a new, all-metal one. Made by Hampton Bay, it's attractive and very sturdy! I had to replace the canvas on the old one every two years, at least. This one should last a good long time:

The interior shot with the stove is great. Virtually no giveaway. -- Russ
