Pulling Coal Through Falling Snow

Merry Christmas from the Cahaba and Acton Lines of the L&N. Spending time with family and friends has been fun, but this load of coal can't wait. Even snow showers won't slow down this FA-1 diesel from hauling a few more loaded hoppers down to the junction to hook up with the rest of the train.

Although the track hasn't been set on the garden railroad, this simple vignette was staged for the wonderful photo-op that mother nature provided on the day after Christmas. The locomotive and two-bay hoppers are from Aristo-Craft. The evergreens along the track are two of the Dwarf Alberta spruces that were featured a few days ago. They are still in the plastic containers in which they arrived.
