These photographs were taken many years ago before I re-painted the back scene to look more like lush forest covered hills.
Another of Andy’s locos on a visit, a Boston and Maine Geep working in the Benson east yard making up a pulp wood train.
The 60 ton GEC loco was a conversion given to me on my 53 rd birthday by my old friend Bill Gates. No not that one, this is the real Bill Gates from Southport Lancashire of the Alameda and now Modesto fame. Two superb models made and exhibited by Bill, who sadly is not active at the moment following a serious illness.
I think Andy doctored the flashing roof top beacon in Photo Shop.
