The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club. Oak Park Illinois USA. May 2011., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
I took this photo recently, at The Oak Park Society of Model Engineers H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.
A once common site on the southwest side of Chicago Illinois during the 1960's and early 1970's era, were these unique Transfer cabooses from the former Gulf, Mobile & Ohio Railroad. This custom built example, is viewed during the club's recent May Secial OPS Night.
During these occasional special operating session, the club's layout is actually operated and dispatched just like a real everyday railroad. Many switching locals are operated on the club's layout, as are many yard switching assignments.
Believe Me....It isn't that easy.
