Default Getting ready for winter in the high country

This afternoon we had to move the cattle down to lower elevations with a stock extra. The stock extra got held up for a coal drag that was bringing winter warmth to the towns along the rails.

I'm packing up my figures/cars/buildings. Usually do some work on them in the winter. Had a hail storm this summer, so little extra repair work ahead.

Matt and Regal:


Thanks for the positives. Sometimes it is fun to recreate something that I have seen in my books.

I realize that the coal train isn't quite correct. The Bachmann 2-bay hoppers were never on the D&RGW. Perhaps that is why they don't have numbers on them.


Living here in Virginia, I can run the trains through the winter season.

I'm a retired geologist. Sooo, I'm kind of partial to trains hauling something that came out of the ground. Hence, my coal drag here and my 32 car iron ore train in 1:29.




Stan:

Winter is when the "rattle worms" disappear!

Cheers,

Chuck

Winter the day is when we have snow until noon on the ground.
Winter the season is when cars with Minnesota license plates show up.....
