Default Dangerous and Getting Rapidly Worse

Such was the moniker of the Denver and Rio Grande Western in the last
stages of its decline and deferred maintenance program. Some vintage
toys make the rounds, describing the last of the great stream liners,
this one being known as "The Prospector."

Hi Chops. I like it !
I also have a D&RGW F-unit by Precision Craft ( F3 A+B ) but mine hauls a California Zephyr set from IHC ( Rivarossi).
Regards, Colin.

Thank you fellows, I would love to see that California Zepher set, Colin, if you
manage to get a photo or two. Rather lucky that we have a club layout large enough
to run long trains. We were gifted this building back in about 1984, and the founding
members put in a huge amount of sweat equity building it up. As a result, it is a
bit of a Tower of Babel, in many respects, but still feel lucky to have it as many
fixed plant clubs around the US have gone away as the hobby shrinks in the
face of video gaming.

Hi Chops.
After the problems with some photo hosting sites charging for linking I signed out of them.
When I can get onto another I will post photos .
By the way I also have the Marklin California Zephyr set which has a Western Pacific A+B+B F-units and six cars but are 3-rail digital so cannot use it on my main layout but with extruded aluminium car bodies with full lighting and sound is pretty impressive on the kitchen floor .
Regards, Colin.

Default Free posting sites

I find Imgur easy to use, I have also been told Tinpics is a good free site.
