I am currently out of new pictures of interesting Gilbert items. But I spent time running trains today and took a couple of pictures I could post. This is an Erie Berkshire pulling out of the yard leads onto the mainline. The Berkshire started out as a FlyerChief but was gutted and modified to run on Legacy.
I took the pictures just after sunset with no room lighting on, resulting in a long exposure time. That is why the layout is in focus but the motion of the engine caused it to be slightly blurred.

Nice 310. Paying a little more for an engine that is great looking and runs well is sometimes a good idea. Just so long as it isn't a whole lot more. By the way, nice looking shelving with all your trains displayed. Looks like you have some very nice stuff.

One final picture post for the year, and the decade. I took this as a demonstration of the pulling capability of the new FlyerChief GP7 diesels. The UP version is pulling a 20 car mixed freight up a 2.25% grade. The cars to the rear are Gilbert, the ones to the front are mostly Lionel Flyer. This is not a free rolling train as it would be if the cars were all AM or MTH.

Technically, there is 1 more year in this decade, but that's an argument for another forum.

Great layout. I've never been one to care about scenery pictures on the wall, but your's looks great. Gives great depth to the scene. Very nice.
