Very green green winter here,
Good morning from mostly cloudy and cold Northest Ohio!
I did manage to complete a couple of cars this week.
IMRC 40' PS1 boxcar made in the 50's with an early 70's. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Mask Island decals. Used in general service on the ATSF.
Next, a Walther's Bay Window Caboose kit, that is standing in for a Southern Bay window caboose which had different steps and window configurations. There was a Wright Trak Kit for this caboose that was a bear to build and it may reappear from another kit maker. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Reefer Yellow, ATSF Red and Black Paints and lettered with Mask Island Decals. The yellow bay window designates the caboose as used in local service.
Started working on a Tangent PD 4740CF Covered Hopper kit. Nice kit with a lot of similarities to the Exactrail 4427CF Covered Hopper kit.
A Pair of Athearn Genesis F7's with a coal drag on the Strongsville Club layout.
Thanks for looking!

Forty Friday. This is an Athearn Blue Box kit. Still need to replace the horn and work on a new light system for it...
Although it's numbered 3100, the GP40-2 series on the Grande started with 3094.
Rocks look real!
Time to convert to Z scale.
