This was done on a small diaroma I built, I guess I really do like night photography . . . This is MVRR 5 pulling through the outskirts of Coloma, MO.

I don't have a model train world (just for planes, but that's another site), but I have at least 5 large boxes full of H0-stuff, mostly tracks, but also lots of buildings and all the stuff. Plus, I have the luck of living the city that is home to the world's largest model railroad world (Miniatur Wunderland Hamburg); 1.000 trains with 15.000 waggons, controlled by 60 computers, 300 driving cars, 200.000 lights, etc. If you have only the slightest interest in model railroads, you gotta visit this 'Wunderland'.

It's getting closer to it! Seems the price goes up each year, much higher than my wage goes up!

I got my first Lionel set (second hand) from a cousin for Christmas when I was 7 and collected Lionel all through mine teen years. I would build huge layouts in my parentís basement only to have to tear them down when they needed the room. I switched to HO when I was 20 and have been collecting for years waiting to live in a house with a basement and once I even did, but since I work for Uncle Sam I end up moving every three or four years and I donít feel I should invest a lot time in building a layout that I may or may not be able to move. So I watch trains, which I have always done, take photos every once in a while and have to be content with that.

One of things that I have found to be funny with this hobby is that items I saw for sale 20 years ago that were too much then, are still around and are too much, but a least I am not a poor college student anymore and I do have some money to try to get them.

I would have expected maybe a "any UP line that moves freight" comment from you Ween!

It sure is dirty enough. Try a little more smokestack black and a matte finish.

I am just curious as to "WTFWDD"? means over the conductors numberboard.

I can guess the first three, but this being a family site and all.....

Obviously the first three are "What the f**k" and the last three are "would Dave do" for the full statement of "What the f**k would Dave do?" which is a long running joke Pat and I, along with a couple other people, have with an engineer friend of ours.

It's something I started with another friend of mine several years ago. This is along the lines of the "What Would Jesus Do" bumper stickers that say "WWJD." We were both driving behind a vehicle with a WWJD sticker on it, and immediately said "WWDD," in reference to a friend named Dave? A second later, to make it more appropriately Davesque, we added a few letters which, as you mentioned, stand for some non family style words. We now have WTFWDD bumper stickers and car magnets that we pass out to people who care to put them on their car, mainly people who know Dave. It's not funny otherwise, of course. The guy who photoshopped this picture likes to covertly place WTFWDDs on many of his photoshopped pictures.
