    Good morning from cloudy, mild and rainy Northest Ohio!

    Managed to finish up a couple of cars this week.

    First is another DTI XI boxcar for the fleet of Campbell's Soup cars. The DT&I serviced the huge Campbell's Soup Plant in Napoleon, OH on the Tecumseh MI, branch. The branch was the main line until the Ford build Malinta cutoff was built back in the 1920's. These cars were rebuilt from ACF and Greenville 40' boxcars with the addition of plug doors and insulation to keep the canned goods from freezing. Car was an old Front Range kit that I used the plug door, then painted with Scalecoat II Armour Yellow, Boxcar Red and Aluminum paints then decaled with K4 decals.

    The Rock Island in 1966 ordered 300 50' PS1 Combination Door Boxcars, with each group of 100 with different equipment, the first were plain jane cars, the second group had lading anchors etc. with the DF2 classification and the 3rd group which I modeled also had PS's end of car cushioning along with the DF2 lading anchors etc. I used a 50' IMRC PS1 kit which had both kinds of doors in it, added a Moloco End of Car Cushioning Coupler Pocket, A-Line Sill Steps. Painted wiht Scalecoat II Oxide Red and Black Paints and lettered with Mask Island decals.


    Thanks for looking!

    Looks like the li'l critter is on the loading dock next to the plank. Love the really ramshackle building.

    After quite a few months of not having a layout, I built a shelf out of a broken dresser’s drawers. Ironically, it’s the same dresser that I used for the layout top….

    What's up with all the work to find the cat? Took me an hour to make this thing and spell stuff from a cartoon incorrectly :) Is it Sylvestor? Was that even his name, and once again, wrong spelling. I need to watch cartoon's more :)

    You can do so much with a small space in N scale.

    Memories of my younger days. Plus, the truck.... As a person who owned a bunch of different classic and muscle cars, plus built motors professionally for street rods... Very nice!!!!
