    I know I have posted this elsewhere in the forum this week but here's another Santa Fe unit earning it's keep.

    Good morning from cloudy and cold Northeast Ohio!

    Moving into more a more modern era,

    Atlas FMC 5077CF Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II Silver and Black, and Floquil SP Daylight Red paints, they lettered with Herald King Decals for the Hartford and Slocum Railroad. One of the early IPD Boxcars, which were free runners and brought in small railroads substantial revenue until the Staggers Railroad Act killed the Incentive Per Diem rate structure.

    Athearn ACF 4600CF Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray paint and lettered with Herald King Decals. The DT&I had a hundred of these cars that replaced leased PS 4427CF Covered Hoppers and were used to service the grain elevators on the south end of the railroad. This is the fourth car I have completed and have 3 more to do.

    My favorite pair of engines, Athearn GP38-2's with a train of coil steel flats heading to the stamping plant. Picture taken on the Strongsville Club layout.

    Thanks for looking!

    Good morning everyone.

    In the Palisade Canyon on the west bound line a survey team is checking on how repairs to a recent minor washout are holding up.

    Washout1.jpg


    With the survey crew cleared from the area the dispatcher reopens the line to traffic and the first train through is this stack train being pulled by former MKT power.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    I love these odd looking critters. I may have to try building a FOOB in EL or D&H livery. If one can be found, that is...

    I finished weathering some cars and re-weathering the Bachmann Sharknoses. I was not happy with the way the Sharknoses were originally weathered. I went back and redid them. They are more heavily weathered than I wanted but I feel they look better than before. As for the hoppers there are one or two I am not thrilled with so I may do some more to them. The cattle car was sitting on the workbench for a long time so I finally finished it. The caboose is a oldie.

    :unsure:

    I'm pretty sure that letting your train stuff go is a crime against humanity.
