Oh man, sure love the delivery paint scheme on those Cotton Belt FTs.
I'm with you on that.
I couldn't wait any longer for IM to do this scheme. So....
Good morning from sunny and cold Northeast Ohio!
I managed to get some work done this week.
Bowser 100 Ton Hopper Car kit, painted with Scalecoat II Black and lettered with Herald King Decals. The PRR after building 16000 H39 70Ton Hoppers, 5 years later starting bulding 100 Ton Hoppers and built a few thousand before the PC days. The yellow ball indicates that the car was in unit train service.
IMRC 50' PS1 Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II B&M Blue and Black Paints, then lettered with Highball Graphics decals. A few weeks ago I did the modernized version of this car with its new paint scheme, this time with the as delivered paint scheme.
A pair of Bowser GMDD SD40-2's with a fleet of Canadian Grain Hoppers that I built at the club layout.
Thanks for looking!
Visco looks real! dti406, crisp work as always.
A few photos from the new diorama.
A short, fast train. That was the Grande philosophy before they bought the SP.
Here's a little customer special....with only one loco, this wasn't going over Tennessee Pass
That IS neat. I've never seen that paint scheme before.
From 11/2017 on my previous N Scale road, demolished 02/2018. After three years without a railroad, I hope to start on a new one this year.
Thats a nice compact little switching area
Just had fun switching the layout

That "J" scheme was a striking one for sure.
Whoa -- LOVE the J Geep! One of my favorite roads, as seen from my bedroom window when I was young.
My dad called the Elgin Joliet & Eastern the Chicago Outer Belt Line.
The J and WP influenced this paint scheme for the Turtle Creek Central.
Wednesday had me a trip to the LHS in Billings. There, a 'friend' wanted to show me the new club layout downtown. I put 'friend' in quotes because he offered me this Horribly Oversized locomotive for a dirt cheap price. It is a beauty!
And this bridge scene is just very nicely done.
Your Horribly Oversized locomotive is lovely. I believe it also is an anthracite burner judging by the firebox dimensions. Look similar to the D&H fireboxes I remember.
Being NP, she burned Colstrip, MT lignite. The railroad operated the mine for it's own use and for commercial sales.
The Horribly Oversized stuff is SOO
Overdone. Not even amusing, much less intelligent.
You N scale brothers need to ascertain a better glitch. To better show yourselves
not challenged or worse, just plain jerks.
I have never called an N scale modeler anything but a modeler.
So, just stop.
