Welcome to my Blog. The scope of this blog is to record the trials and tribulations of building and maintaining an HO scale layout, the trains and all of the ancillary projects that go with it. In 2017 New York Central subsidiary short line Empire Belt Railroad came into existence. The New York Central / Penn Central and Empire Belt are now the major railroads featured.

Newly Painted Locomotives
Greetings Blog Followers,
Here are the newly painted locomotives fresh from the shop...
Penn Central #1908 joins PC# 1802 on the roster. Both units are Bachmann train set locomotives with non powered pancake motors. They are draw bar equipped for close coupling.

PRR # 1602 in a simplified scheme from the late 60's. This scheme was used on FP7s during that era. This locomotive is a Bachmann train set locomotive that was painted in a bright yellow U.P. livery.

NYC E8A #4020 is a Proto 2000 model and formerly painted in F.E.C. red and yellow.

A four unit lash up, NYC Lightning Striped F7s with PC F7s, lead a feight train on the upper level. The first six cars are also recent repaints. Three Baldwin diesels are also in the scene with two S-12s on the lower level and an S-12 in the background on the upper level.
