Approaching Hohman Ave Tower and getting a roll by inspection from 1/87th scale Larry D
With it's train dropped on track 3 the EC-3 power heads east thru the yard so it can run around and tie up on the western side of the yard to be ready for departure when the crew returns from their visit to Dominick's Italian Restaurant.
