    Finished up a car this week. M&R etched sides on a Microtrains RPO car. Had to kit bash some old Rivarossi tucks as there are no two axle heavyweight trucks of this type available.

    Good morning from Mostly Cloudy, Rainy and Cold Northeast Ohio!

    A couple a weeks ago I showed the parts for a Tangent 70 Ton 52'6" Bethlehem Steel Gon, here is the completed model painted with Scalecoat II Black Paint and lettered with Herald King Decals. Gon was in general service on the Reading.

    Atlas 50' FMC 5347CF Boxcar Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Silver, Big Sky Blue and Black Paints and lettered with Herald King Decals. Car was part of the IPD boom of the late 70's and early 80's until the Staggers act changed the rate setting for these cars. Many short lines purchased lots of Boxcars to alleviate the box car shortage and in the mid 80's found all of the back with no customers.

    Picture from the Strongsville Model Railroad Club with a pair of Athearn GP38-2's for the DT&I passing the off loading facility for covered hoppers at the club. They are hauling a mixed freight with the first cars being hauled for Campbell's Soup at Napoleon, OH

    Thanks for looking!

    Another oldie (At least the locomotives) - I am taking photos of my older projects.
    I detailed these quite a while ago.

    At some point - I may revisit these and add DCC

    I went to the California State Railroad Museum with some friends last weekend. We ended up going to a couple of fellow model rails homes to see their layouts. I took this of my buddy Alvin's new Athearn Genesis Southern Pacific GP40P on Dave Stanley's Morada Belt HO scale layout:

    Nice.

    You could stick a Milwaukee Road Little Joe in there. It looks a bit like Eagle's Nest.
