Thread: Playing in the Dark

  1. Default Playing in the Dark

    Out in western Kansas there are some reminents of days gone by. Signals standing dark, no trains, no electricity. I've wanted to model these signals so I took some measurements and the played a little. I unbolted the cover on the back of the signal to put a flashlight in it. Moon was up and the stars were bright. If there was just a Missouri Pacific 4-8-4 coming it would have been perfect. TZ

    Where did you find those Tom? Is that along the KYLE? Really cool photographs though. I really like the second one. Thanks for sharing.

    Like the last one the best. It one would be great with a little glow from the signal.

    Yes, I used to go watch,and chase trains on the MP Pueblo line, as it was only a 16 mile drive from My house. I have a lot of pics of Rio Grande, SP/SSW power and some other stuff from those days. I need to go get some pics of the part that has been long since pulled up

    I would like to see pictures from the Pueblo line. I only have a half a dozen or so of MOP trains and some of the SP. There are some picturesque places on that line alot of up and down and curves.

    I found some I took on the line between Herington Ks and Elmo Ks, I frequented that area a lot in those days. I need to take and have them scanned and put onto CD's
