My LOTW is one I originally going to scrap, but being stuck in the house for three weeks has given me some time. I wound up repainting it and making a new axle cover for it. I think it looks okay.

ON one the 180 degree bends in the Lehigh River which is preceeded by a 90 degree bend, and all followed by another 90 degree bend, the one between Rockport and Penn Haven A small train yard, little used was repurposed and now will be a storage area for some of these well built interesting first generation locomotives and other interesting Railway vehicles. A group of Ladies and Gentlemen have come together and formed the "Lehigh Valley Railway Historical Society". At this time ten Alco FA-1 types from 4 different railroads on loan now are in open storage here. With them are two railroad cars one a notable B&O combine mail and passenger of their named train the "Royal Blue" is a dual purpose car which is kept at the yards east end entrance along with a single Union Pacific caboose. This caboose has become a yard office while the combine everything else from a Station to Cafe to Movie Theater. A local group of model railroaders have built a small train layout within. Two small structures at the yards south end are also well used by this group of citizens. The tourists have already found this place and on weekend wander through it taking photos of what they find interesting. All are well mannered and respectfully are very careful as they walk through railway history. Something good is happening here!

Reported and photographed by yours truly.

Fantastic collection from the Dawn of HO, Frank. Never tire of seeing it, and it is always getting updated.



The classic Tyco G. It has double vamp motor bogies and it really pulls now.



Inspired by WKS, a solar powered tram.
