An SW8 and TR6B
Following up on my photo from last week, this is what my N Scale engine terminal looked like after scenery and structures were added. A household move doomed this portion of the layout to a short life. [07-31-1988]
Good morning from cloudy, hot and rainy Northeast Ohio!
Managed to go white this week!
Intermountain Railway PS 5277CF Boxcar Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer White and Silver paints, then lettered with Herald King Decals. The St. Marys Railroad participated in the IPD boxcar boom of the late 70's and early 80's by ordering a number of boxcars, these were repainted Orange in the 1990's as the white did not old up.
Athearn ACF 4600CF Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Reefer White and lettered with Herald King Decals. The SOO LINE in the 70's wanted to change its image and ordered a lot of cars painted in white and noted as being a ColorMark Car, I have never been able to find out what the Colormark logo meant, I saw one place where it meant the car was in specialized service but there is no other marking on the car that would substantiate that like return to.
Last week was another operating session at the club, I was using my PFM 2-8-0 to run all the mainline freight trains again, and it performed well, but I need to add a some weight to haul the longer trains up the grade.
Thanks for looking!
Pics look real!
