Where is this Wednesday #16



Where is this?


Looks like a parade! :)  Photographer unknown.


Last weeks answer was provided by Dick Bradley, not Dick Foley who is another friend of mine, who knows a lot about the Reading, but virtually nothing about the Ma & Pa.  The answer is Baltimore, and it looked like 61 was next to the roundhouse.  My apologies to Dick Bradley for my mix up.

#61 Update..

video


The video above shows what progress has been made on my kitbash of gas-electric #61 from a Bachmann doodlebug.  A new can motor has been installed along with the Soundtraxx Micro Tsunami GE Cummings 70 tonner decoder, iPhone 4s speaker, and TCS KA2 Keep Alive capacitor.


The next video shows how long the KA2 keeps the sound going after the engine is lifted from the rails.

I still have a bit of detailing to do on this piece of motive power along with painting, but I am quite pleased how it's progressing. :)

Photo of #61 from my personal collection.  BTW, this is one of the half dozen or so pictures I'm using to build my model of #61. :)





Thanks again to Dick Bradley for not only allowing me to use his photo, but also for providing the answer for last week's Where is this Wednesday.  And no Art, it isn't Little Gunpowder Bridge. :)  Check the comment section from last week's post to see the answer.

Where is this Wednesday #13 and NERPM report..


Where is this?


From the Barringer Collection.

I attended the NERPM last weekend and had a blast meeting up with some of my old friends and making a few new ones.  Dave Owens and crew do a fantastic job each year and we always have a great time there!  If you haven't ever been to the NERPM make it a point to go next year (always the weekend after Memorial Day).

Here is a link to photo's from the meet:
