Throwback Thursday

I have made a little progress on the railroad, however nothing exciting to report. Thought I would change gears and share some photos of the old layout. As I mentioned before the railroad was the Grand Forks and Western Minnesota (fictitious) Dba as the Grand Western Railroad. Loved The Grand Western part, reversed engineered the other part to show a history. However it gave the wrong impression of where the railroad operated. Thus the new name, which I love.

Enough of that, I hope you enjoy the pictures.

Mainline freight passing the city depot. I thought this was a pretty cool shot. Don't know how I did it and I doubt I could reproduce it. And yes it is a bit schizophrenic as I had originally planned on a 80's railroad but then high quality affordable steam became available and I was backdating the layout.

I always enjoyed this scene on the railroad. The garage in progress was scratch built. Pre ballast and weeds along the mainline.
