Ready Yard

The  photo above shows some of large steamers sitting on the ready tracks in the locomotive yard.  From the left, they're the MTH RailKing Big Boy (4-8-8-4), the MTH RailKing Challenger (4-6-6-4), the MTH RailKing Allegheny (2-6-6-6), the MTH Premier GS-4 Daylight (4-8-4), and the MTH Premier Cab Forward  (4-8-8-2).  The wooden surface to the immediate right of the Cab Forward is the top of the pine display case shown on the Display Cases page.  (And yes, that is some of the table structure and wiring showing in the background -- the layout is nowhere near complete, and the skirting has yet to be installed.)

Below are a few more shots from a later date.  From left to right are the MTH Premier Yellowstone (2-8-8-4), MTH Premier Big Boy (4-8-8-4), MTH Premier Cab Forward (4-8-8-2), MTH Premier GS-4 Daylight (4-8-4), and the MTH Premier K4s Pacific (4-6-2).  As you can see in the background, the latest display case has been put in place, covering the table structure.

In the fall of 2000, this is what the ready yard looks like.  All of the locomotives are MTH Premier.  From the left, they're the Nickel Plate Berkshire (2-8-4), the Pennsy T-1 (4-4-4-4), the DM&IR Yellowstone (2-8-8-4), the N&W Class A (2-6-6-4), and the SP Cab Forward (4-8-8-2).  That's a new MTH Lehgh Valley Crane and Crane Tender to the right.

It's Spring, 2001.  The Ready Yard looks quite different as I've rearranged what's running and what's in storage. As shown below, from the left: MTH Premier SP GS-4 Daylight (4-8-4), MTH Premier SP Cab Forward (4-8-8-2), MTH Premier DM&IR Yellowstone (2-8-8-4), Lionel JLC Challenger (4-6-6-4), and the MTH Premier UP FEF (4-8-4).
