...in a friend's Chessie System based HO layout:







I did say Chessie System based:


And for some reason the Queen heard about it and had her personal Manor Class 4-6-0 fired up, her private car prepared, and came over to see what was going on:

He's has a Chessie locomotive addiction problem, he has it bad, huh?
One they go that far I don't think there is a cure.

He will probably paint that to match the rest.

Bad is not the word!! That is only his HO; his O (mainly three-rail) is expanding to fill its assigned room (Boyle's Law?) The UK stuff is mine, I took it over just to see how the Branchline equipment ran. His first comment: "Bachmann? It might make it around the layout once or twice, but....." After several trips as smoothly done as an Atlas; well, he was surprised.

Actually, I am thinking of painting an SD40T-2 in Freightliner colors; John Deere green and Cat yellow will do well for me. Oddly, the Athearn unassembled SD40T-2 that I found on ebay at the time that I was considering the job came from the UK! And for purchased less than some others (assembled and running) from here in the States.

The second wall, there is a third out of view to the right:
