HiDef: Spring Brings the Circus Train, Rare and Nice Lashups to the NS Harrisburg Line

Saturday, February 25th, 2012

Warbonnets, Conrails, Ringling Brothers, foreign power, all admist the usual Canadian Pacific and Norfolk Southern trains of the NS Harrisburg Line. You’ll see a lot in this spring sampler, and just a note, this video like many others I have uploaded, will all eventually be available on DVD. This is why I don’t show full clips of trains, not to mention I am pressed for file-size time, but I like to keep you all entertained so I hope you enjoy what I do put up. (For more details: read more below the power list). 3-20-10 The first day of spring and 19G shows off its many units in the afternoon sun. NS SD70M-2 2690 NS SD60 6584 NS D9-40CW 9335 NS D9-40CW 9390 NS D8-40CW 8382 UP SD70M 4404 3-21-10 Eastbound loaded automotive racks 18N in some nice sun, but the trees are still bare. NS SD70 2561 NS D9-40CW 9904 3-22-10 Ethanol loads 68Q in some spring rain with a relatively rare CSX locomotive trailing. NS D9-40CW 9660 UP AC4400CW 6620 CSX SD60 8712 3-22-10 A lashup of all ex-Conrails on 19G, misfortune would have it that the leader is black, when in fact it is rarer to see a black SD50 than a blue one, but still a nice trio of power for 2010. NS SD50 5429 NS SD60I 6758 Conrail Quality NS GP38-2 5281 Conrail Quality 3-27-10 A pair of standard cabs on 14G; this is an increasingly rarer site in the new decade. NS SD70 2563 NS SD60 6628 3-27-10 That afternoon, 19G meets 33A, both of which have nice power. All units are running on 19G and units 1, 2, and 4 are running on 33A

In the midst (back garden, spring 2008)

In the midst (back garden, spring 2008)

The rather scruffy upper end of our garden in Spring 2008 (2).

We were in the midst here of changing the top end of our garden from an unkempt bare patch to a terrace with borders. The Valrosa Cabin workshop (background) was quite new (2007) and here we are are just moving things into it after we’d painted the inside, put in the floor-covering and fitted the shelving. The decking and the block path to the cabin were also new. These were all the first steps in the plan for this part of the garden. The untidy area in front of the cabin had become a temporary dumping area for garden materials during the construction work, but was soon to become our upper terrace.

For those interested in seeing the gardening details better, go to Actions (top L) > View all sizes > Original. See also notes on picture. However, notes are not retained in downloaded versions of Flickr images.

(Details below currently being edited)

FEATURES
Decking – removable decking ‘bridge’ (recently completed by Acer Landscapes) over Middle Section of Garden Railway, öowere L. Ideally we’d have been able to make this a fixed bridge in stone but this would have meant having a step-up here in order to give full clearance for the trains.
Garden Railway (G-scale) – 45mm gauge G-Scale, based on Märklin-LGB system, parts and rolling stock, and own garden-sized civil engineering. Part of the Middle Section is visible here, lower centre and lower R where it joins the Upper Loop on the Upper (Railway) Rockery.
Path – leading to steps to Valrosa Cabin, L, newly laid in concrete block paving by Acer Landscapes.
Temple of Juno garden shed – only part visible is the singe white column of portico, far L. I made the columns made from a flag pole.
Valrosa Cabin workshop – in background L, fully insulated, built for us the previous year by Acer Landscapes. Although completed, we had to paint the inside and put floor covering in, before we could fit it out and move in (as we are doing here).
Water butt – centre R, supplied with rain water from roof of Valrosa Cabin, just behind.

PLANTS
Picea glauca var. albertiana ‘Conica’ (centre foreground).

OTHER DETAILS (also noted on photo)
‘Banks Cabinet’ drawers (ex-NHM – "Rosen Wanted") – L centre, stacked up during transfer from house, and about to be moved into Valrosa Cabin behind.

LOCATION DETAILS:
Country: UK: England

London Borough: Lambeth
District: West Dulwich, SE21
Altitude: 40m
Aspect: view is approx westward. Border on L faces N, so mostly in shade.

The rather scruffy upper end of our garden in Spring 2008 (1).

We were in the midst here of changing the top end of our garden from an unkempt bare patch to a terrace with borders. TheValrosa Cabin workshop (upper R) was quite new (2007) and here we are are just moving things into it after we’d painted the inside, put in the floor-covering and fitted the shelving. The nearer stone paths had just been realigned, and the block path to the cabin was also new. These were all the first steps in the plan for this part of the garden. The untidy area in front of the cabin had become a temporary dumping area for garden materials during the construction work, but was soon to become our upper terrace.

For those interested in seeing the gardening details better, go to Actions (top L) > View all sizes > Original. See also notes on picture. However, notes are not retained in downloaded versions of Flickr images.

FEATURES (also noted on photo)
Borders – on each side of the nearer part of the garden path and being re-done following the realignment of the path. Border on L has been reshaped and is being dug over and topped up with more soil. Border on R will become extension of Upper (Railway) Rockery and replanted.
Decking – removable decking ‘bridge’ (recently completed by Acer Landscapes) over Middle Section of Garden Railway, centre R. Ideally we’d have been able to make this a fixed bridge in stone but this would have meant having a step-up here in order to give full clearance for the trains.
Garden Railway (G-scale) – 45mm gauge G-Scale, based on Märklin-LGB system, parts and rolling stock, and own garden-sized civil engineering. Part of the Middle Section is visible here bottom L, laid on a temporary trackbase of loose cellular concrete blocks and awaiting realignment. Part of the Upper Loop is visible centre R on the Upper (Railway) Rockery.
Path (1) – of reclaimed York stone laid in ‘crazy’ style. L branch is a recent realignment of an older path. R branch is a new section of path, part of the access route to Valrosa Cabin (upper R). Both these bits of path had just been laid by Acer Landscapes.
Path (2) – leading to steps to Valrosa Cabin, newly laid in concrete block paving by Acer Landscapes, R centre.
Temple of Juno garden shed – centre, with shingled roof and white columns supporting portico, built by me in sections out of reclaimed timber ("Rosen Wanted") at a previous house, brought here and extended with portico. I made the columns made from a flag pole. Steve Cruse (joiner) hung the doors (architectural salvage), put on the cladding. Doors and portico awaiting paint.
Upper Rockery (Railway Rockery) – lower right, with evergreen and alpine planting, and Upper Loop of garden railway (just visible here), built myself of various kinds of stone in simulated geological structure.
Valrosa Cabin workshop – upper R, fully insulated, built for us the previous year by Acer Landscapes. Although completed, we had to paint the inside and put floor covering in, before we could fit it out and move in (as we are doing here).

PLANTS (also noted on photo)
Chamaecyparis obtusa ‘Kosteri’ – a dwarf form of Hinoki cypress – young tree in foreground, front R.
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Plumosa Nana’ – a dwarf form of Sawara cypress, lower R by path.
Chamaecyparis pisifera ‘Squarrosa’ – a form of Sawara cypress, centre L immediately in front of Temple of Juno portico.
Cotoneaster frigidus – upper L.
Juniperus horizontalis – prostrate juniper, R, by Upper Loop of Garden Railway.
Picea glauca var. albertiana ‘Conica’ – dwarf white spruce, on R of decking section.

OTHER DETAILS (also noted on photo)
‘Banks Cabinet’ drawers (ex-NHM – "Rosen Wanted") – centre R, stacked up during transfer from house, and about to be moved into Valrosa Cabin behind.

Rochester’s PAL Model Railroad Heaven – The Edgerton Lionel Train Layouts – Spring Scene (2)

Tuesday, August 23rd, 2011

December, 2009 visit to the Rochester, NY PAL Model Railroad Heaven – The Edgerton Model Train Room. This is the Spring layout – the second to the left as you enter the room from the “Observation” platform. The backdrop has been preserved, but the layout was completely revamped about 25 years ago with GarGraves trackage donated by GarGraves Trackage Corporation, a Rochester based company since the 1940’s(Factory & Showroom now in Alton/North Rose, NY – Wayne County). The tracks & trains coming from the left are coming from the Winter diorama. The Winter scene was originally all on a level higher than the other 3 scenes, and while that level is all still there, loops of track from both Fall & Spring make their way through the lower level of Winter now and there is a connector track to Spring’s new(~25 years ago) upper level. These Layouts were prominently profiled in the Lionel / Bantam books of the 1950’s in the chapter titled “Model Railroading As A Civil Project”, and the story of their construction by the Police Athletic League is detailed in those pages. Lionel was the supplier of the all of the train equipment at that time. All four layouts, Summer, Fall, Winter, & Spring, represent landscapes in/around the Rochester area. The original backdrops have all been preserved and worked in to the layout updates.
