Panting quietly with a 100-car train tied to her tank, GN R-2 2047 waits on the main while her companion pusher takes on much-needed water a mile back.

When the two crews whistle-off and the train gets underway, the exhaust from the buxom-boilered “mountain mauler” will reverberate off the surrounding mountains, and the ground beneath her will shudder deeply. The old trees along this stretch of mainline approaching Skykomish, WA from the west watch this operation with familiarity. And the engine crews, which use the gnarly broken-top tree as a landmark, have named the tree “Graybeard” in a lightly disguised reference to the Empire Builder himself, J.J. Hill. This is a vignette of steam railroading on the GN Cascade Subdivision circa 1950. —Lee Marsh

Painter Diorama
Painter Diorama
On John Kirk's late 1800's mining diorama John has added a 1:48 scale model of artist, 'Jack', who roams the countryside searching for interesting scenes to paint. (Jack sometimes takes artistic license with his color choices.) The picture on his easel is actually a scaled-down copy of a photograph used with the kind permission of fine art photographer, Joseph C. Filer. See Mr. Filer's amazing works here: www.josephfiler.com

This is John Kirk's "River Scene" on his late 1800's mining diorama. Note the mining laborers in the background and the Canyon Creek Scenics trees nicely situated to complete the scene.

Charlie Comstock’s Bear Creek and South Jackson Railroad

The following pictures were taken on the Bear Creek module of Charlie Comstock’s Bear Creek and South Jackson Railroad. Seventy-five trees of various types and sizes were arranged on the 14 square foot Bear Creek module. The results? Judge for yourself! Check out how fog effects change the mood in some of the pictures.
