    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!

    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. (y)

    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 ;) ):

    #CNR_4000.JPG

    Kato HO GP35 repaint by yours truly.

    CN only bought two of these. I painted 4001 with the zebra stripes.

    In the early days of Amtrak, the Ridley Flyer was very colorful and unusual.
