Apparently, we've achieved something astounding: according to someone in the SP Modelers group on Facebook, there is no R-40-27 in HO scale - but we have one in TT!

Thanks! I'm very happy (and relieved) too, that was quite the gong show!

The three railways of my childhood and youth: the bright colours of CP Rail, the bright yellow of BC Hydro Railway... and SP grey lol.

Lemons used to be the main agricultural commodity in and around Carpinteria, California, in the 60s and before... by the time I was living half-years there, that had largely switched to avocados, but I do still recall some lemon orchards between Carp and Sta Barbara.
