I have some screen shots of the LIRR route, but I don't know how to post them. They are .pcx files and I could not open them in my Windows computer, but I ported them to a Mac and they opened. If someone wants I can email a few to a person who knows how post photos. I can save them as jpg, tiff, or whatever. Or if someone could tell me how to do it, I will try. They are mostly head end views around B tower and Hicksville, but I can take others. Queens interlocking is always kind of neat.
LIRR168, I think I already have your trains, but I appreciate the offer. They are incredibly excellent. I use LI 252 (I think that is yours?) more than anyone's locos, even Gaetan Belanger's 224 and 227. If you had the time to make a solid, concrete textured abutment 1250 feet long, 25 feet high at one end, 2 feet high at the other, and 25 feet wide, I would use it as the ramp for the Montauk Division incline between Jamaica and Holban.
