Bill,

Thanks again for the K5s pics. Don't remember if you were around after the Christmas party, but I had mine with me. On another note, you have several pics of locomotives [including one of the K5 5698 photos identified as being at the '39-'40 New York World's Fair. I have since learned that they were taken in Altoona, possibly in May of 1937 for a R&HLS/NRHS "Off The Beaten Path" Altoona Shops Inspection weekend. http://www.amazon.com/Altoona-Shops-Inspection-Trip-Sunday/dp/B004BM65QQ Have a great day!! Larry

Hello!  Looking for a PRR photograph that has PRR coal cars in it...I'm looking for a present for my friend whose grandfather was a coal shoveler.  Would you please contact me?  I'm unable to send a message the other route.  Thanks

Hello, Looks like what I have been wanting.  I have these T-1 models:   BLI, Bowser(my assembly), PennLine Kit(lead), Sunset, Bowser shell & Long haul Tender, AND a mysterious brass model (#6110/11) that NO ONE has been able to identfy.  It is this one that I need photos of; right now I'm working on the trying to determine lighting for the tender rear(none on the model).  I'll continue looking to see if you have a shot.

Lived in Hollidaysburg from 1953 to 1958. Saw the last of steam in the Altoona - Hollidaysburg area. Even rode an L-1 around the Hollidaysburg yards.

Great web site. I do a lot of custom painting of HO brass, and this site is invaluable.
