This is an HO model I built for a friend's layout.
I like it ! NICE!
Since we were not up last weekend, you get a double dose of completed cars this week!
Atlas 3900CF 6 Bay Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II MofW Gray and lettered with Mark Vaughn's Wabash Decals. In my opinion one of the best railroad owned paint jobs on a covered hopper.
Atlas 5701CF ACF Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Armour Yellow and letted with Herald King Decals.
Got the Tichy Covered Hopper Conversion car painted and decaled this week. Car was painted with Model Masters Silver with a few drops of Green Paint along with Scalecoat II Reading Green for the extension, lettered with kit supplied decals. The Andersons purchased ex-Wabash Panel side hoppers, added an extension and canvas top for shipping grain from Maumee, OH to the export docks in Toledo, OH.
In the 1970's the Frisco rebuilt and modernized their 50's era PS1 boxcars by removing the roofwalk, lowering some ladders and repainting and renumbering the cars. This is an Intermountain 40' PS1 Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Oddballs decals.
The Nickle Plate along with the C&O and Erie received some 1937 AAR Boxcars equiped with a Viking Roof. Luckily Des Plaines Hobbies had some Viking Roofs made which I purchased and applied to an IMWX 1937 AAR Boxcar Kit. Car is painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Microscale Decals.
Thanks for looking!
There's no limit, so post as many as you desire.
Very nice sandlot. Also, thanks for finally letting us see your lovely face.
Wish I was young again. The idea of a pickup game sure sounds like great fun.
PS- Like your avatar. It is very nice to see a happy, smiling person!
Let's see if this works. Jim

It certainly does work. Wow. Neat scene, Jim.
Wish I could be riding this train, right now.
I used my time away from Trainboard to make space for my spray booth. Still working on a place for a model building area.
Great job on the model Russell. Would you please share what colors you used? Thanks
Nice. Really, I am focused on baseball.
The Swift Company
Is it just my eyes, or does the tire tread on that truck look like it has actually been run on a dusty street?
Nope. I see it too.
Guys, at our age everything appears "dusty"....LOL
