I was invited to attend an operating session of the North Georgia Moduler Railroad Club, at their annual set up at the Smoke Rise baptist Church. The layout this year was properly massive, and took me over an hour to circumnavigate. Granted I was running a slow way freight that had to take to the sidings on occasion, but that did not bother me. My slow speed meant I had plenty of time to enjoy the beautiful layout sections as I slowly rattled through them.
For this adventure, the 1890s W&A rose from the dead in the form of Baldwin ten wheeler #7 The "Excel". #7 preformed flawlessly, aside from a small accident in the first five minutes on the railroad when her pilot got jammed in a switch and was yanked off. However, I found I kind of liked the look, and upon the show's close, I decided that instead of fitting the old pilot back, I would construct some switchmen's boards to go under the pilot beam.
There maybe something more to this in the future.
