Love them Trains

For the Love of Trains
In their song Long Train Runnin' the Doobie Brothers ask the question "Without love, where would you be now?"  They did not have the love of trains on their minds when they wrote this song, but at APN, the love of trains is exactly what is on our minds.  Steam trains, freight trains, short trains, passenger trains, long trains.  Love them Trains!  And where we be now is at the APN Clubhouse with our trains.

This photo spread features one of the longest trains we had run to date in an operating session at APN, and it really looked good to see this ribbon of a train as it slowly and gracefully eased its way around the pike.  And with a train this long all spread out, it highlights one of the many advantages to having a club layout - having this much running room!


Richard shows his approval.  Don't doubt for a minute that he doesn't love trains.

The train passes over itself as Roger carefully takes her up the helix of Mt. Stephens

She is so long the camera's flash struggles to light the rear of the train

Wrapped around aptly named Big Bend
