Alternative Power

It is that time of year again. During the Holiday Season every train we own gets it's share of track time. No matter what the road name, diesel or steam, passenger or freight all of our trains will enjoy some fresh air outside of the box on the rails or on the work bench if need be. Minor repairs and maintenance is expedited and any major repairs will have the shop crew on overtime. It is quite a colorful and enjoyable time for the engineers, passengers and rail fans.  

I know the title of this blog is New York Central Train Layout but life here is not all jade green and lightning stripes. While the large bulk of my railroad inventory is New York Central I am also fan of other railroads as well.
For the record I do this to let Santa know that ALL trains are welcome here.
