Kato Noch VT18.16

This is what I do when snowed in for the weekend in Wisconsin.  I set up my Kato oval and run Kato Noch's VT18.16.  A model of the DR's TEE train.

Forest Park Illinois SOO Line Depot

A picture via a friend of the SOO Line Depot in Forest Park, Illinois.  I believe the B&O's Chicago Terminal Transfer RR owned the structure.  Their tracks ended just north of this picture at Madison Street and the SOO Line began just north of there.  I remember this station from passing it on trips to Hines Lumber across the street.  It was stucco building.  Unusual for a station in Chicago although common for homes in the area.  I grew up in one.

B&OCT's Homan Ave Yard

Industrial History blog has a nice post on the B&OCT's Homan Ave Yard. One of those once busy now forgotten parts of Chicago's Industrial History. This is on the B&OCT's Altenheim Sub which has long been a favorite of mine.

Proses Multiple Gauge Rotating Locomotive Cradle

This looked pretty useful... I'd be such a great modeler if I had all the cool tools!
