My TTRAK inside corner. A Prairie 2-6-2 locomotive is switching a "prairie skyscraper".
Good morning from partly cloudy, cold and windy Northeast Ohio!
Still have not got my painting area set up, but am still working on building new cars etc.
Finished the Exactrail 4427 CF Covered Hopper kit, all installed except the roofwalk, which will be added after the car is painted and decaled.
Completed an Intermountain FMC 5283 CF Boxcar that will be painted for the SP.
Started work on a Rock Island Combo Door Boxcar, used an Intermountain Kit, added Moloco Draft Gear for the end of car cushioning, still in progress.
Another picture of my Rapido PRR FA-2's with a traiin composed of mainly short covered hoppers hauling sand/cement.
Thanks for looking!
A DS-4-4-1000 hard at work.

The Chevron diesel distributor in Battle Mountain receives a pair of loaded tank cars. Have a great weekend everyone.
Isn't this supposed to be "Photo" fun instead of "Proto"? lol
Continuing the series of "nighttime" downtown shots, this is Franklin. Being out in the farmlands it doesn't have a real downtown but this is as close as it gets.
I was typing on my laptop at the airport this morning and half asleep. I corrected it.
4-8-4 with passengers on the move.
Finally ran a test train on the alcove layout!

Looks like your Kato Unitrack shipment arrived chandlerusm. I envy you -- I don't even have benchwork yet.
Came home from grocery shopping, and there was a package on the porch.
It was from Kalmbach...and contained a box car I had ordered in October.... the 85th anniversary of MR. So I thought I would take a photo of the 85th anniversary car with the 76th anniversary SD40-2 and the MR&T caboose , #70.
Even the Rio Grande needed connections in the East....
Three of my 13 Rio Grande SD45s. A Kato, and two Athearn RTR.
Great modeling as always everyone!
Got some weathering done on the Tunnel Motors over the last few days. The lazy numbers on that D&RGW 5366 still are driving me crazy, but that's the way they are on the prototype. The PTC cables are clearly visible now as with the other under-frame details. I enjoy that the older these units got the more stickers were added, over the top, besides, under the older ones, and some added to places they prolly weren't needed.
Thanks for taking a look.
All I can say is WOW!
