    Good morning from cloudy, cold and trying to snow Northeast Ohio!

    Finished a couple of cars this week.

    [​IMG]

    IMRC 10,000 Gal Tank Car kit, substituted Yarmouth Models sill steps for the plastic ones in the kit. Painted with Scalecoat II Black paint and lettered with Champ Decals. Anchor Petroleum disappeared in the early 60's and the ANPX reporting marks were trainsferred to the Mobile Oil Company and they eventually disappeared in the early 70's.

    40' Branchline 1944 AAR Boxcar kit. In researching the NYC Lot 858-B boxcars, I found this was the only group of 40' boxcars built by the Despatch Shops that had their distinctive car ends and roofs. As there is no 40' Despatch Roof available, I cut three sections out of a 50' Roof and spliced the remaining pieces together to get a 40' roof. This car represents a PC rebuild that removed the roofwalk and lowered the brake gear and ladders. Painted with Floquil PC Green Paint and lettered with Microscale Decals. Car was assigned to the Roots Blower plant in Connersville, iN.

    Nice cars as usual. The Anchor Petroleum car in particular is distinctive and very interesting. Also older than most of your cars- it would look very much at home in a steam era freight. Also nice NKP Geeps.

    Thanks, I do model both the steam era and the 60's/70's eras, so I change the periods. I have been doing a number of steam era cars recently to fill out some consists.

    Marshall Canning must have been quite a large company. I have seen photos on their buildings on the M&St.L in Minnesota.

    Nice shots everybody!

    Here is a short run-by. The loco is an IHC. The three boxcars are the latest cars I finished weathering earlier this week. The caboose is a recent acquisition and has not been weathered. It is an Atlas Trainman. It is a replacement for a Roundhouse caboose that I custom painted that was damaged in the recent home disaster. The Roundhouse caboose may be beyond repair, unfortunately.

    Really nice work on everything Tom. I love your Camelback! You could always say that your hack is fresh out of the Penn Argyl Shops. (y)

    The dispatcher is probably going to hear "words" from these two! At least the 7 was on a slow order due to a fragile load, so was able to stop in time as 11 was slowly slogging around the corner and also stopped. Whew! PIC_2182.JPG

    Those corn field meets can be scary. Wouldn't want to be that dispatcher.
