Above image (GOOGLE) is of a two car steam train running on a New Haven Railroad branch line–similar to steam passenger trains the author will run on his N scale layout.



The rail president said “three”…

Car trains filled

With passengers will,

Pay bills comfortably!

By on occasion two,

Are all that one can do…

Short run-around

And steamer bound,

To the turntable to use!

A “junction” layout have I–

Only so much room to get by–

Two RDC’s

Fit comfortably,

But a third or a loco–oh my!

About Jonathan Caswell

Poet, author, servant of God the Heavenly father and the Lord Jesus Christ...working out his salvation with fear and trembling. - Not trusting in his own deeds, but depending totally upon the finished sacrificial work of Jesus Christ to be, by God's reckoning, a new creature, clothed in Christ's righteousness...which mortal humankind can never attain by their own weak efforts, apart from faith in Christ's work on our behalf. - College-educated, yet wise enough to see that what a man does will not be his ultimate identity nor affect how God sees him or her. - Called by God to do a very difficult thing...apart from God's grace, mercy and love the sinner (which we all--by nature--are) but hate the sin, which is only paid through Christ, God's Son, - My own God-given gift is that of being a Poet..showing that in all parts of life...God has a loving part in hard as that is to always understand or perceive...given life's realities! Come join me on my journey of discovery?.
