New Layout: WDM2 first test run on my new layout lower deck. Layout install is in the preliminary stage.
New Layout: NJ Transit ALP-450P with three double coaches on my new layout (lower deck). Excuses for the in-process layou
WGD4D to the rescue
A very long goods train has been stranded due to locomotive malfunction. the non-operational loco has been removed and sent to the shed. A WGD4D is sent from Bombay yard to rescue the train. Note the operation of switch (point), before the locomotive backs up to hook up the goods train.

Here two WDM2's have a very long goods train up a steep grade helped with a WDM3D banker. The banker un-couples after the grade and the two WDM2's take loop around the upper deck of my layout
