Nice scene. Some hefty power for a three car MOW train.
An AC-4 headin up a freight:
Bad track ahead so need to spread the locomotive weight out on more axles.
Took this one back when color film was too expensive.
Good morning from Sunny and Hot Northeast Ohio!
I got a little work done this last week!
First up is an Intermountain ACF 2980CF Covered Hopper Kit, substituted A-Line sill steps for the plastic ones in the kit. Car was painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray Paint and lettered with Oddballs Decals. Car was ordered in 1977 and used in cement service on the Rio Grande.
Next is another Intermountain 50' PS 1 kit, the second I have done in this paint scheme. In 1966 the Rock Island ordered a number of these cars and this group came with end of car cushioning that I replicated using a Moloco Kit and again I substituted the sill steps with A-Line substitutes. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Oxide Red and Black Paints and lettered with Mask Island Decals.
Picture taken at the club with a mixed freight hauled by a pair of Athearn GP9's.
Thanks for looking!
Ha, Ha, nice save.....LOL
Franklin depot one warm summer evening in 1962
Big weekend and we should have more photos.
Is it 1950 or 1980?
You are right, so here is one, that I have posted before, but it fits this patriotic weekend..............
Looks like you are ready either way.
Been working on another rebuild of an old small module. Got far enough along for a few test shots. This is a Japanese module and I am still on the fence about adding the overhead wire poles or not so for now here is a DMU train crossing the highway.
And here it is on the return trip showing the other side of the module.
Still some more details to add but almost done. This module will be part of the AsiaNrail layout on display at the Narrow Gauge Convention in Sacramento, September 4-7.
You may appreciate a fresh breeze from the sea?
Guess that all depends on which track you are on.....
Forgot which weekend this was when I posted my layout picture, here is one for the National Holiday!
Athearn GP38-2 in the only manufacturer delivered Bi-Centennial Paint Scheme of the 1970's. The DT&I kept this unit as clean as possible up to its repainting after the GTW takeover.
Me, too. Here comes NW:
