The new image at the top of the blog for the month of March, shows a somewhat imposing view of the front end of hard working JSSX 813 switching cars along South Industrial Blvd.
The crane hadn't been seeing a lot of use on the JSSX, and I happened to stumble across someone that was wanting one, so...I'm hoping that Stephen in PEI is happy to have this one.
I used to have photos of the crane actually on the layout, but of course I lost those in the great 2020 hard drive crash. I should have thought of that and re-taken a few new ones before I shipped it out. Too late now.
And here's an updated view of my paint-by-numbers effort of the scene along the JSSX east sideIt's really starting to take shape now. Keeps me out of the basement for a couple hours at a time. I sort of wish I'd used a different locomotive for this (my B23-7). Oh well, it is what it is as they say.
