Trains - Part 3


Here is the train. The engine is a Union Pacific SD50. There's a Burlington Northern reefer, a Chesapeake & Ohio gondola, a UP wrecking car, a Canadian National gondola, a UP box car and a Chicago Northwestern way car (caboose.)

Thomas has ordered a new RS3 Rock Island engine , which is a switch engine, with his Christmas money. It seems our UP SD50 is just a hair long for the 18-inch radius and switching on the shorter track. The new RS3 is shorter so he shouldn't have a problem.

Oh, this is great! Thanks for the pics. I loved to read how Thomas loved this project and about all the stuff he was learning.

Wow! This looks like so much fun. Makes me want to dig out my FIL's old train set and see what we can do with it.
