You're probably beginning to understand how much I treasure this train set

It runs 20 to 25 minutes on a filling and put in many flawless performances

The Carette produces steam plumes as long as the train while Bill Ford and Marc Horovitz bask in the sun

This is the last picture of the Carette, but there are videos of it on the next two pages

This loco has seen a lot of run time and is in need of new axles and bushings

It still pulls as if it were new

Jerry's Spinner is a beauty

That's an impressive cab - especially in O-Gauge
 

Cheers!

The light at Diamondhead is always challenging, but often beautiful

This loco is beautifully detailed and looks as if it was on display in a museum

This is a John Thompson Built loco with a driver in the likeness of the late Ron Brown of Steam in the Garden - A very nice tribute (by Tom Bowdler) to a great gentleman that helped promote the hobby we share

Vertical boilers and backwood locos are meant for each other
