It's been a little slow in the LEGO train world lately. While I'm sure there are some great MOC just around the corner, here is a little inspiration in the meantime to get the creative juices flowing.

God Father Rails

This is one of my favorite lesser known sites to visit from time to time. John Dziobko, Jr. is a well known photographer in the rail fan community an God Father Rails is his website through which he shares his fantastic photos. While he primarily covers the North Eastern US he does have a few photos from west of the Mississippi. One of my favorite photos is this one of Pennsylvania RR Class D16sb #1225. Here she is in excursion servise for the Stasburg RR in December of 1966 making a trip down the middle of Water St. to kick off the Holiday season in Lancaster Pennsylvania. The tracks through the streets of Lancaster are long gone now but #1225 is still around now residing close by at the Railroad Museum of Pennsylvania.
