September 16,2011 video

 

Good shot of NWP train of 9 MT grain cars. Always enjoy seeing entire train consist just to see which railroads are represented . Some folks watch for locomotives, I watch ( keep track of) reporting marks. Here in Seattle Edmonds we do get a variety of marks. Last week spotted a MoPac gondola with MP herald and MP marks--not UP mark. We see COER, NKCR marks ocassionally along with a PCN car couple of months ago. Never know when a shortliine car will appear along with various private…

Unusual Activity, 9/16/11

1922 in Petaluma.  Not sure when it arrived, but 1922 came to town with yet more grain.  I think it brought in 4 cars.  There were 8 already here, when it departed (with 2009) it had 9 in tow, and at least 3 on the siding at H&B.  2009 was trailing and it did appear there was some heat exhaust, though 1922 seemed to be doing the work.

Photos and videos posted.

 

  Thanks, guys, for posting both videos and photos onto site. However, it would be good if the videos showed something other than a single engine running light and if videos were taken when NWP train was in near distance rather than at far distance. In terms of photos, one photo of a scene is enough. 3 photos of same scene is a bit boring due to repetitiveness of images. If there is a clear difference in shots taken it is fine but 3 of basically same image is hard to fathom why…

Missed opportunity

So I heard 2009 leaving P-Town and decide to leapfrog ahead to Olive st. in Novato. I get there, set up my shot and... I left my memory card at home! D'oh! Oh well there were 7 grain cars heading south

Rail activity on Aug. 31 or Sept. 2, 2011

Anyone got photos or video of NWP movements on August 31 or Sept. 2,2011? Going to post them so that we distance challanged members can keep abreast of rail movements. Caught the video of August 29,2011 with 9 empties being moved back to interchange. Am looking forward to more recent NWP movements. As far as I can tell there have been 3 carloads to Standard frames (name?) in Windsor plus the grain movements to Dairymans and the other grain company since NWP reopened.

HO Scale 1922

That’s right HO scale # 1922, I'm looking to model engin # 1922 and I'm wondering where I can get an SP "Bloody Nose" non-dynamic GP9. I'm on the look for it, but it looks like all of the modeled SP GP9s are with dynamic brakes.

 

 

 

Any suggestions?
