Having thoroughly enjoyed running and photographing my version of the Rock’s experimental short haul train.

I thought I would do a bit more “what if “ modelling starting with, what if the Rock had tried out the scheme at an earlier time. So it is repeated the operations but using different locomotives and stock.



RI SW1500 switcher is seen emerging from the tunnel mouth and rolling past the engine house at Colonel’s Crossing with a train of empty covered hoppers.



The empty grain cars are spotted at Archer’s elevator and the crew take a break at the local diner while the loading takes place.



The train is now seen in the head shunt for the flour mill at Benson. The cars will be left there to be unloaded, and for the crew the end of their working day.
