~ This run of "C-19's" arrived late 2001 ~
~ Latest Revision: Monday, November 01, 2021 ~
Once in a while a guy will shoot a photo that comes out
close to what he'd hoped
for... Rarely he'll get a shot he's completely happy with.... But
only once in a GREAT while he'll get a shot that totally exceeds his
This is one of those.... Never mind the fact that the #306 has no
passengers in it,
the scene, the lighting, the models all come together to say "Great Stuff
And so it is.... Which is why simply we couldn't resist posting it here
for you to see too...
The locomotive was, of course, one of our very latest, (at the time...) R.G.S. #40's circa the later "Transition Era" finished as one of our World Renown FOREGROUND MODELS.... And Jimmy's weathering really brought it to life! In our opinion that rust on the smoke box simply couldn't be better...
The #306 Passenger Coach with its "Conductors' Bay Window" was from our recently arrived (at the time) passenger cars, it being an "extra" so to speak... We have since produced a run of Passenger Cars "to die for"... You can CLICK HERE to have a look at some pics we grabbed of some of them before they disappeared...
The Foreground scene is one you've seen before which I cobbled up some years back to shoot photos on; the Background scene was shot in the mid 1980s ( Memory serves me right... ), on the highway west of Chama just before you get to Chromo, lookin' north, on a perfect fall day and is one I never tire of...
Funny thing about the mountains of Southern Colorado / Northern New Mexico... 'Far as I know, they are the only place on our earth where the colors are this bright; the mountains this majestic; and the sky this clear and blue......
But you're not here to "listen" to me reminisce. So on with the show! We were able to shoot photos of some of the C-19's as they were coming off of Jimmy's workbench... Most have a RH and a LH view which you can access if you go to the first photo of the model as shown below...
We did a better job of chronicling this model run than most
of those in our past... Mostly due to the advent of decent digital cameras...
Clicking on any
of the icons above will get you a look at that particular model.
