    I keep meaning to add a chimney to the old "Eldrige House".

    Good morning from sunny and hot Northeast Ohio!

    Got a couple of more cars done this week.

    Tangent PS 4750CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray paint and lettered with Oddballs Decals. Car was built in 1980 for use in export grain service out of Iowa, many elevator companies went together to acquire their own cars so as to ensure they had a car supply during the car shortages of the 1970's.

    Athearn 60' Berwick Hi-Cube Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II White, Silver, Black and Boxcar Red Paints then lettered with Oddballs Decals. Car was used in the Auto Parts supply to the assembly plants and was assigned to Ford's Melvindale Parts Depot on the N&W.

    Took my recently completed Wabash U25b along with the GP35 that I did last year to the club with a train of mostly Wabash freight cars. Really ran well, we had no derailments at the club while running trains, hopefully restrictions will go away so we can go back to operating sessions.

    Thanks for looking!

    Got a couple of shots from my old "Michigan right coast" module this week. It was still at the blue styrofoam desert stage, but I had the structures mostly built. The first photo is obviously the hotel, which somewhat resembles one located at Bay Port, MI, and the second is the fish packing plant. At that time, I was first experimenting with using vehicles as an at-a-glance date stamp to set the time period, an idea I have fully adopted. Hopefully both of these structures will find a home on the new layout.

    Ok. My Denver and Rio Grande has a subsidiary railroad in Utah called the Turtle Creek Central. And they have another one on the East end, the Kansas Colorado, which is nicknamed DURANGO.
    Just redid these GP20s. Tyco shells on Mantua solid chassis, with micro LEDs for headlights. Renumbered in Grande style for horsepower, 2002 and 2013.. IMG_20200723_210703.jpg IMG_20200710_031339.jpg IMG_20200723_210712.jpg

    Never write off the old mantua/Tyco stuff. Most of it is rock solid. That's also a sweet looking paint scheme. Very nice.

    The backdrop is horrible, as is lighting, but, the Hi is catching up to the Broadway (pulled by a CM&B Pacific). PIC_0356.JPG PIC_0359.JPG
