Those are some great pictures, Paladin. :apl: I bet you were smiling the whole time. The bridge gives a whole new meaning to " duckunder ".

My uncle and I are building a fishpond by his patio, and after seeing this now wants too add a train to it some how. I guess I will have to start looking for some G -gauge stuff. :) Can't thank you enough. :bow:

Todd asked for information on one of the locos in the glass cabinet shown in an earlier post.  I was not able to help other than to say the extra space between the rear drivers was to allow for a rather large firebox.
When speaking with Dave he felt sure it was an early model Mogul.
I have since found the loco on Bachmanns web site under their large scale.
And sure enough they refer to it as a MOGUL.

Thanks Don!!

The thing that threw me was that small pilot whel behind the driver.

Most Moguls ive seen are a 2-6-0 with the 6 being ALL drivers.

Now i just KNOW you hated being there........How could you stand and look at that Powell valley layout.......

To think that Some people would Spend all that time in pursuit of something as Unproductive as playing with trains....Musta just drove you nuts!!!:moose:

I think he may have left off, or removed, the flange on that driver so it could make tighter radius curves without binding?

North Coast Narrow Gauge
by Gavin Hince
On3

This layout is situated at Gavin's home, the layout hosts monthly operating sessions.

Take note of the small stream tumbling down the mountain side. it is real water that is pumped by a small indoor fountian pump. very effective, the water sparkles and most certianly moves.
