(After recovering from a good long [5-7 min] cackle...)

I leave for ONE duty night and THIS is waht happens?
I just can't leave you guys alone in the computer room anymore, can I?

Seriously,... it's too bad we don't have track all the way to Albion. If Dave got his mini going fast enough he theoreticaly could wind up in 1935 with a wad of cash! Perhaps enough to save one locomotive!
Although, given the value of today's dollar to the 1935 dollar, he'd have to seriously load down the mini with $20's!!

If an early general manager could have had Thomas the Bank engine bring in boatloads of kids who wanted to ride behind him in Annie or Clarabelle, he would probably jumped at the chance to get Thomas on his line. To quote John Goodman's character in Oh, Brother, Where art Thou?, "It's all about the money, boys!"

Good one ... Fred the Forney - LOL 

As to movie lines, I recall that the water tank was marked with "A#1 South on 19 to Portland"  From another great movie and all time WW&F track crew favorite, Emperor of the North.

I would like to know when an HOn30 model of Fred the Forney will be available, and if the WW&F gift shop
will sell it I'd like to sign up for one! ;)

...singing "Waiting for the Train to Come In"...

BTW someone brought in a printout of the "Fred The Forney" picture Saturday.  Fred got a big kick out of it.

The museum's fully functional Halftrack could make it, but wouldn't you know it, the darn thing's been put away in Leon's garage for the winter!
Must get this baby.  :o :o 8) 8)

Getting back on topic...

The museum's first motive power has been repainted to a more prototypical scheme, and renumbered as such...



Note that the reverse gear has also been set to automatically change when the end of track is reached. The operator's chair also spins automatically in the appropriate direction.

I also like the addition of the bell. Should come in handy if the little critter gets lost out on the line.

If truth be told, I believe the bell was in the original photo and was not a PhotoShop addition. It successfully kept the little critter from getting lost, but did not prevent it from falling off the track once in its early days. Nor did the bell sufficiently warn a porcupine that had a fatal encounter.
