Here are some photos of Lindsey at the Casey Jones Museum in Jackson, TN.

Here is a picture of the museum exterior with a modified Clinchfield locomotive used as a stand-in for the engine that Casey Jones died in back in Vaughn, MS in 1900.

At the Casey Jones museum is a small theater where movies about Casey Jones are shown, a series of displays, including the hearse that carried Casey Jones, the replica of his locomotive with a passenger car and caboose, and the house he was living in at the time of his death. There are a number of interesting stores in the Casey Jones Village, including a general store with a world famous buffet restaurant inside, local history museums, miniature golf, and the aforementioned motel.

That would be a cool small layout or diorama for someone to do. Only 4 pieces required!

It would be alright. They sold little porcelain replicas of the house that would fit in nicely with our American Flyer trains, of which we picked up one. Ironically the most numerous S gauge locomotive we have is American Flyer's "Casey Jones" engine, which is a 4-4-0.

Thanks.

We have more to upload from our recent move, and is part of our premise that "TT Scale is portable".

Here are some selected photos from our stop in Walcott, Iowa; where there is a museum dedicated to trucks: The Iowa-80 Truck Stop, which is the biggest truck stop in the world, can be seen in the background of the first photo:

The plan is to have Zeke restored in time for the national train show, all we need is to figure out what size screws to get for Zeke's chassis.

Metric M2 screws. Those were used in all BTTB models.
