    Good morning from sunny and warm Northeast Ohio!

    Managed to complete a couple of cars this week.

    [​IMG]

    First is another BAR 50' boxcar, car was rebuilt in 1971 from the 10000 series of ACF Boxcars, the railroad added end of car cushioning, removed the roofwalks and lowered the ladders. I added the end of car cushioning using a Moloco kit and then painted the car with Scalecoat II ATSF Red, Black and Silver paints then lettered with Highball Graphics decals. Car was used in hauling paper products from Maine to all over the country.

    Next is the next car in the DT&I ACF 4600 CF Covered Hopper Fleet. Car built from an undecorated Athearn kit, then painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray Paint and lettered with Herald King Decals. Car was used serving grain elevators on the southern portion of the DT&I.

    Picture taken at the Strongsville Model Railroad Club of my PRR GP9's with a mixed freight.

    Thanks for looking, and now looking forward to the good stuff.

    Hmm.... Last week seems to have been geared locomotive week. This is the week of the cab forward.:) Everyone has again posted superb photos.
    Jim, love that old time sawmill scene. It has a really nice backwoods feel.

    A pair of several times rebuilt SD40-2s handled the Sumas Turn.

    The trailing unit is painted in an alternate paint scheme that designates it is sometimes used in 'remote' service for yard switching.

    I'll agree with that. I never cease to be amazed by what Sven is doing in Z scale. Just outstanding! BTW, Sven, what did you use for your snow effects?
