Had nowhere to post random photos that might be of interest.

The attached image is of 3-donkey engines moving into the woods. Probably Washington or Oregon. The photo is quite old and was faded, stained and in poor condition, so I cleaned it as much as possible.

Very cool picture Marc... no doubt about who owns that image  Wink Grin

Well that clown train definitely qualifies as a "WTF is that" shot.

Marc, that's a lot of tender for little loco in the first photo. The second loco is nicely balanced and looks complete on a smaller scale. It would make a nice project in a large scale, a handy size but full of details. How would one make that stack with hand tools?

Someone needs to make a Thomas the Tank Engine model with that damn clown face on the front. Weather it heavily and have zombies for a crew.

 The first loco photo must be a model train. The tenderwheels are off the track.  Shocked  This is most probably a tenderdrive unit as the loco is too small to accomodate a good sized motor.
