    Good morning from cloudy, windy and rainy Northeast Ohio!

    Managed to complete a couple of cars this week.

    [​IMG]

    Intermountain 40' PS1 Boxcar kit, painted with a mixture of Scalecoat II Roof Brown and Boxcar Red to try and match photos of how most of the CMJ's boxcars were painted and lettered with Herald King Decals. Car was one of 50' built for the CNJ and were probably the last new boxcars the CNJ ever received.

    [​IMG]

    Next is a Tangent 4000CF PS2 Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II Black Paint and lettered with Herald King Decals. Tangent made these cars with three different numbers, but as an NKP Modeler I wanted more of these cars, so I built my own with new numbers. Car was used in general grain service.

    [​IMG]

    Tangent 70 Ton 52' Bethlehem Steel Gon kit, to be built and painted for one of the railroads that owned these cars.

    With all the new the New Haven stuff coming out, I started on these a couple of years ago. A custom built U25b and C425 that were detailed for the New Haven and photographed on the Strongsville Club layout.

    Thanks for looking!

    I posted this short (1:05 Min) YT video in another thread, so I hope this is not overdoing it. At any rate here is the conclusion of one of my scratch builds as it has been "planted" on club layout...............



    Thanks for looking,
    Carl

    Kind of the same scene as I posted above......but without the levity.:p
    I like to have fun with my modeling. When I become too serious, be sure and scold me.:eek:

    Russ, that's a lovely scene, I could comment on the Cafe's acceptance in the community with only two cars in the lot and one couple strolling away. Though it is dark, thus perhaps late in the evening after the dinner hour. One can only hope the cafe's financial statement is sound.

    From the physical appearance of those pedestrians, I think they came out of the bakery.

    Nice photos this week. A bit of levity from Russell, the usual outstanding freight cars from Rick and shots with nice moody lighting from Russel and John make for a good week, but then we've got Carl's stockyard (nice build) and the same kind of excellent weathering we've seen from Yannis in the past- a great job of capturing the sun bleached, sandblasted railroading of the southwest. All in all outstanding this week.

    Here is another short YT video showing recent "New Additions" placed on the "Jackalope & Western RR" in Las Cruces, New Mexico. Hope you enjoy and thank you for looking.

    The weathered painted brick looks terrific.

    Let's take a look over the wall - a small PRR shop at White Haven, close to The Chesapeake Bay;
