    Kinda murky looking. Maybe good for catfish-ing?

    I think an old beat up trash can next to the door would add to the scene. Don't know what...but something. :sneaky:

    Two D&RGW SW100s. One, the 148 is weathered slightly, and the 144 still needs to see some chalk. These units are awaiting the next train to break up on the South end of Roper yard. The Rio Grande didn't MU their switchers, and so I had to remove the MU hoses from the 144... 148 144 .jpg

    And a couple more switchers for Saturday:
    SW1000 96 is an Athearn unit that I've detailed, and the 745 is an Athearn SW7 that I painted, and now need to weather. 96 & 745.jpg

    Yes, the box car was based on the Rio Grande paint scheme...In my world, the TCC is a D&RGW subsidiary...
    I made a complete train set of TCC cars, the box car, a hopper, a flat car, the switcher and a caboose. I had given them to a friend, but he in turn gave them to a young boy who had a brain tumor.
    I hear that he plays with this set every day.

    Another shot from the train show in San Antonio two years ago. A wagon load of fresh picked cotton is on the scale weighing in before unloading at the Imperial Cotton Gin. Sugar Land's Spanish style Southern Pacific depot is on the right. The SP Argonaut, trains 5 and 6, were a flag stop if you wanted to catch a train on the Sunset Route.

    That's a great photo including the vehicles. Cotton fields begin about 50 miles south of where I live. Looks like snow almost.

    The brick and concrete is amazingly realistic. Very nice.

    I'm with Jim, especially the concrete. Wonderful finish.

    Russell, who makes the poles? The ones I've gotten so far only have three cross-arms.

    Those are kit bashed from the three cross-arm Atlas telegraph poles. I slice and dice them to have however many I want. Sometimes I just have two.
