As long as it's not cancelled, I don't mind if they take their time with it.

Fingers cross it's closer to Midlander than it is CGI Rusty though.

Sorry. Yes it is a flange.   No groove for tires.

Is anyone else concerned about the prototype of Rusty not being out yet, and there aren't any updates on him.

When we were out there, I took my AWD Safari and drove over the original roadbed for a ways. I found some old spikes laying there.

Another view from the original roadbed

In the race to lay as much track as possible. UP built a trestle across here and CP used fill next to it to bridge the gap. You can still see the trestle abutments in front. This is East of Promontory Point. They abandoned the trestle in 1870, and went with the fill.

Don't forget to remove the golden spike before someone steals it (they really did remove it after the ceremony, spiking in a normal spike in its place).

There was an article in Model Railroader magazine about a guy who diorama'd the scene with action and moving parts, and how he did it.  I forget which issue it was, but a quick google search should help you out a bit.

By rim, do you mean flange?  That would be the part of the wheel that (usually) holds the train to the tracks instead of rolling all over the place.  And even on the real things, sometimes the middle set of large wheels (drivers) would not have a flange, to help the engine negotiate a slightly-too-tight curve.

This is a cool video. It's a documentary about logging in CA. in the 1940's.
The train footage starts at about 4:50 into it and goes to about 6:40.

I'm just considering all my options now.
I guess I'm going to have to paint the inside since the standard caboose glows a bright red through the walls. I don't imagine these walls are any thicker.
