    Finally got my first module to a "ready" state, so had to get a shot of local power:

    Stringing all of those communications wires must have been fun.

    It was so fun that I took the approach of only trying to do one a night after work. Kept me entertained for two weeks.

    The Rio Grande ran an excursion train from Salt Lake City to Denver today. The 4-8-2 1553 was in charge. My friend Chris Hawkins detailed and modified the IHC 4-8-2, and decled the Con-Cor Tool car.... 1553 Mountain.jpg Loco and tool.jpg

    Wow. Wouldn't it be something if there was a real standard gauge D&RGW steam excursion? But there are no survivors?

    Paul - I like the (chili dog?) trailer. Nice touch.

    I received a shipment of goodies from Japan today. It's an N scale Tomix JR KIHA40-1700 DMU coach. I also got a couple of 1927 era passenger cars. 006.JPG

    Made a little real progress on the HO scale Zalma Branch layout this evening. I'm adding the fascia along the front and it is making a big difference in the overall appearance. It's Masonite and I painted it black. I'm going for that museum diorama display look. Soon I'll add a valance. So many projects so little time.

    Wow -that's beautiful, Jim! Reminds me of some of my old rural Oklahoma stomping grounds along the Frisco. (Creek subdivision)

    I thought he was talking about the food truck (well, trailer) on the Colonel's layout. ;)

    Candy,
    Your modeling is excellent, as always. Would love to see what you could do with a steam loco with wooden passenger consist. That'd just have to be over the top!

    Quite right. My mistake. It is a lovely little business.

    I'm sure the confusion was caused by the fact that the Colonel's name is Paul also. So when Eagle 2 mentioned Paul in his post, you were thinking "Chili Dog Trailer", what a strange name for a tender dog house. Oh well, may have to remember that one. ;)

    And it turned out rather well, as well. If I ever back up to getting steam, I may have to do the same, as they seem to have been fairly normal.
