That yard wouldn't hold even a quarter of them.it is quite a collection. was the yard large enough to have room for all of them?
I had my O gauge sitting around for a while and when I moved here I decided to put some run time on them. O gauge I like but it's sooo big.Nice looking layout Ed. Are you rebuilding a New plan??
One heck of a collection.
So here's the deal ... I spent about an hour last night and another hour this morning shoveling about 8" of heavy, wet snow from our driveway, walkways, etc. As I was huffing and puffing along the way, my mind drifted off to the pics of all of those locos sitting on Big Ed's table. And that got me thinking ...
How much combined "push" is in that whole lot? Come springtime, could Big Ed run a bunch of track snaked all around his yard, walkways, etc., wire it up all DCC-like, grab some sheet metal and tin snips, cut out a few dozen rectangles, and then epoxy-glue on little tiny push plows to the fronts of all those locos?
Now, one loco ... that's no threat to a few snowflakes.
And, if 10 locos ... well, maybe push a few snowballs out of the way.
But if we had 200 locos ... that's right, 200 locos, each with their own tiny push-shovel, all working in choreographed harmony ... well ... Mother Nature just might loose that battle! DCC the driveway ... DONE! DCC the walkway ... DONE! DCC the sidewalk ... DONE. DCC the neighbors ... DONE!
Just a thought, gents ... just a thought ...
I have seen better.Hey Ed,
That is one impressive....no,wrong word....Magnificent collection! And your layout photos are equally magnificent....from the buildings to your trucks.....I'm very impressed.....indeed!:thumbsup::thumbsup:
