Lightning Stripes Return

Greetings Blog Followers,

First today is Thursday November 22, 2012 and I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Now back to the trains... Despite the recent trend moving the layout, rolling stock and locomotives toward the late 1960s, which is indicative in prior posts by the paint schemes and appearance of the Penn Central, I want everyone to know that the New York Central Lightning Stripes are alive and well. Right now they are out in force and the somber all black locomotives are being given a much needed rest. Here's a small sample of some current locomotives on the layout.
