Interesting Industrial Scenery.

Note the size of this room, it is the largest of the four buildings.

This is about 1/3 of the layout of the Amherst Railway Society (hosts of the event).

The engine in the foreground was offered for sale, $12,500.

I was so interested in the large guage Locomotive I didn't notice the orange crane.

[IMAGE]

From a distance I saw the crane moving and since I had a superzoom, I caught it in action.

A large steel bridge.

[IMAGE]

Lots of children looking at the trains.

[IMAGE]

Usually the train enthusiasts cringe to see boys handling the rolling stock.
This is the only layout I saw RUN by children. They have on yellow ID necklaces.

[IMAGE]

There was only one booth with anything larger than 1.75 inch tracks.

[IMAGE]

A Real Steam Engine, the only one I saw!

For my friends in Western New York State.

This train was sharp by accident.
I forgot all about following a moving subjects, which I do often at the Dog Park.

[IMAGE]

If nothing else, this layout had the brightest LEDs.

[IMAGE]

The tracks merge into infinity. The longest and narrowest layout.

How does a train gain altitude in a narrow space? This engine goes down in this spiral, gains in the distant one.
