An old Minitrix 2-10-0 that has been heavily modified to resemble a "Russian Dec".
An oldie -- DRS-4-4-1000 (S-10)
From 11/12/2017, the caboose tracks, station and yard on my N Scale road, now gone. A new layout is in the works.
Posting from Sunny California where I am on vacation this week!
Another Athearn 34. Hopper Car where I added the Pikestuff Panel Side replacements. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Black paint and lettered with Champ Decals. These cars were built new by the Wabash in their Decatur shops with many car made in the late 30's and 40's and lasted until the 1964 merger with the N&W, many were sold to the Anderson's elevator in Maumee and were used for many years hauling grain to Toledo, OH. I have a raft of decals for this car so you will see different versions in the near future.
Another Intermountain 57' PC&F Mechanical Reefer that I built then painted with Scalecoat II Daylight Orange, Black and White Paints and then lettered with Herald King Decals. Used hauling produce from CA to locations all over the country.
Another view of my Oriental Models BP-20's with the Broadway Limited on the Strongsville OH club layout.
Thanks for looking!
dti406: more well done projects. Hopper is my favorite.
I need more room for hoppers
Your elevator complex so so wonderfully scaled BNSF FAN -- it dominates the hoppers and waiting trucks with a "just right" size, but doesn't dominate the entire layout. Super cool.
I'll pull out an old runway model photo this week.
CN GP35 4000 rumbling through town (it's not a practice run for the movie Inception ):
Kato HO GP35 repaint by yours truly.
CN only bought two of these. I painted 4001 with the zebra stripes.
It's a quiet evening on Vogel Street in Weir City, KS. We catch the Frisco crew turning at the wye and grabbing some chili at the Owl Restaurant . Don't worry about the time, they're open all night....
Have a good weekend All,
I absolutely love that time era. Excellent refreshing photos.
In the early days of Amtrak, the Ridley Flyer was very colorful and unusual.
