The Grand Road Still Hauling Coal
Author: grandroad

I've spent my working life in the aluminum industry. So when I got a chance to buy a bunch of aluminum coal gondolas at a good price I did and got rid of a equal amount of steel Ortner five bay hoppers. The result was the 55 car CEMCPL (Coal Empire Mine to Coors Power Loads) powered by 2x2x1 AC traction motor engines. When I built he Grand Road I worked at Coors Container and the power and steam came from a coal fired power plant, now, I think the power plant burns natural gas. The train in the photos is on a curve above Terror Creek.
Please enjoy.

Paul,
I must say that the way in which your backdrops blend with the primary scenery is something else!  Thanks for sharing your great work.
