NYC and C & N W two train meet. Nov 2012.

I photographed this digital live sound video this Wednsday night, at the Oak Park Society of Model Engineers,H.O Scale Model Railroad Club.

One of the really "Coolest" things about visiting this model railroad club, are the many unique opportunities to photograph mainline two train meets that are impossible to find in the real world today anywhere!

A fast moving Broadway Limited Imports model of a New York Central Railroad 4-8-2 Mohawk class steam locomotive from the 1940's era pulling a short fast heavyweight passenger train, meets my modern freight train from the former Chicago & NorthWestern Railroad at the tunnel.

My locomotive, is a recently acquired inexpensive Walter's "Trainline Series" model of an EMD GP 15 light diesel electric roadswitcher, that was modified with a DCC decoder. Most of my freight cars on this train, are from Athearn.
