An oldie from the files.
Russell, thanks for starting us out, I think it is amazing what some of you guys can do in N scale.
I finished some cars and used up a bit of my Jade Green paint.
IMWX 1937 AAR Boxcar Kit, painted with Floquil Jade Green paint and lettered with Champ Decals. Car was built in 1940 for the P&LE and was repainted in 1963 in the latest NYC paint scheme. Car was in general service over the entire NYC system, although the P&LE did a lot of things their own way as related to the NYC.
Lambert brass NYC caboose, painted with Floquil Jade Green and Scalecoat Black paints, then lettered with Champ Decals. I painted this caboose all green although many were painted with black roofs, but the all green cabooses existed. These were built under the NYC Lot System as Lot 919, after the PC mergrer they were classifed as N7 and N7a although the NYC never referred to them as such.
A recent picture of my Bowser GMD SD40-2's with a canadian grain train on the Strongsville Club layout.
Thanks for looking!
The canoers are carefully passing a wrecked railroad car that had derailed from the track above and fallen down the embankment into the river.

Here are a couple of oldies from my files;
1. On my module, the ugly Duckling..........
2. The SP promoted this as "the most beautiful train on rails".......
The second image was my train on Wig Wag's modules at the Chantilly Show in 2004. The photo was taken by John Sing.
Remember this Russ?
Thanks for looking.
A pair of Oakway units leading a coal drag past some freshly installed trees. Sorry the units are a tad fuzzy.
Time to hide under my bed !!!
Oh, yeah. I believe that was when I first met you. Fun times.
on their way to the Cajun Pass.....

Enjoy your long WE,
Another old photo from my garage layout I miss very much and regret taking down.
Wow. Fantastic scenery!
Yup. Jedi button !
Working on ballasting in my spare time. Az. rock.
We'll start with some covered wagons, which was a term applied to EMD F units, but I'm applying it to the RF-16 as well.
Then we have some custom run covered hoppers, from Eddie Toombs. This is his private road, the hoppers he had made are Accurail.
From 01/1973, a new addition to my N Scale road to provide room for an Arnold Rapido turntable and Heljan roundhouse. The yellow book in the lower right is a German <=> English dictionary loaned to me by my brother so that I could figure out the turntable wiring!
