A Talbot Valley Railroad (a fictional short line) Alco S2 working in the yard at Benson. The model was a birthday present from my old friend Bill Gates who did the paint job and lettering. It is an Atlas model and is superb for switching, being quite heavy giving very slow quiet running.

The photos show a typical busy day day at Benson with Interstate & Western #381 a GP38-2, a locomotive fitted with dynamic brakes arriving with a cut of empty pulp wood cars. The cars are then backed into the pulp wood loading track where they are loaded directly from trucks.

Another busy day at Benson featuring another 2000 HP EMD GP38-2 but this one is not fitted with dynamic brakes. She is seen arriving with a cut of RI covered hoppers filled with grain. She is then seen delivering one of the Rock Island’s covered hoppers to the Mutual Service Elevator in Benson’s east yard.
