    Not sure, but it kinda looks to me like John Allen lives. Both scenes are outstanding!

    Candy, having been MIA here (and from modeling in general) for some time due to a combination of working away from home and too many projects I suspect I have missed a lot. Your layout is still outstanding and composed of a series of wonderful small vignettes, but would it be possible to get you to post some overview photos sometime? I'm sure many of the folks here would like to see them.

    Three D&RGW cars located on a siding in Provo. They said the Cody's Office car was a shipment of dehydrated steam for the Heber Valley railroad. One of the other cars had a lading of Blinker Fluid for Utah drivers! and the last one is a shipment of muffler bearings....

    Is that one of the old Athearn "Hustler" diesels? Have not seen one in ages. Or do they still make them?

    I like the "BBQ car" idea. I was always tempted to set up a similar scene on the end platforms of an SD40-2...:)

    Of course you will need lots of sauce to go with it.

    Why am I not surprised that Russell has one of these cars? :)

    Athearn hasn't made the "Hustler" in ages. I would like a few just to have them. I like the number seven there

    Well it was either that or this. Of course Kirk Reddie would only approve if it came with a load of peach cobbler.

    As long as you have another tanker filled with some decent whiskey to properly wash all that sauce down.;)

    After this sweltering day in the heat digging for a septic tank, all the above sounds DEEEEEEEEELCIOUS! Now to figure out how Russell is going to get that custom flatbed and "tanker"past the FRA inspectors!
