Another beautiful Fall day. I am beginning to sound like a broken record but we have been lucky this Fall with some really gorgeous days. My image for today goes back to a beautiful summer day in Minnesota and a friend's railroad. He has a collection of beautiful 12 inch scale locomotives of which this is one of them. This one is a Challenger type, articulated 4-6-6-4 wheel arrangement. It is quite something to operate when the front of it goes on forever yet can negotiate some fairly sharp turns due to the articulation. Here I caught it after it emerged from the tunnel being operated by the owner's best friend and cohort on his operation.
