I had a successful appearance at the Great Train Expo this weekend, and made it home with only a couple bent trees and a few scuffs on the fascia which can be easy painted. The Marias Pass operated flawlessly for 13 hours with no derailments. On day two, I ran 5 units on the front, and a pair of helpers on the rear of a 30 car train. It was quite a site.
Anyway, I promised more pictures of lumber loads, so I shot a few tonight. I have a total of twelve different brands of wrappers and have plans for several more. What am I going to do with all of these lumber loads? Well, I plan to use a few for myself, and I started offering some for bid on ebay. From what started out as a hunt for a nice lumber load for a couple of my centerbeam flatcars has quickly spiraled out of control. Isn't that how most addictions work?
