    Good morning from Cold and Snowy Northeast Ohio, woke up to about an inch of snow on the ground this morning.

    Managed to complete a couple of cars this week!

    [​IMG]

    Atlas (Ex-Branchline) 1944 AAR Boxcar kit with 7's Door, removed the rivits from this car as the Ann Arbor cars were of welded design, added A-Line Sill Steps, then painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Smoke Box Graphics decals. Car was painted in the 1951 as delivered scheme but I added the flag which was not on the as delivered car which was in general service.

    Athearn 2893CF PS2 Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray Paint and lettered with Dan Kohlberg's, ICG Decals. Most of these cars were in Soda Ash or Potash service. Not used for cement as cement or sand would overload the car's maximum weight if loaded fully.

    Thanks for looking!

    Last weekend I again went to the fall open house at the South Bay Historical Railroad Society in Santa Clara, CA. Here are a few shots from the N Scale layout. As I had posted some photos of they layout last year I made sure to get some different views this time.

    This is a large layout with several towns and many industries. I thought it interesting to see in the foreground of this photo some abandoned track crossing the street.

    Moving day, wonder if they know they still have the foundation connected to the house.

    Have a great weekend everyone.

    In keeping with Veterans Day on Monday I am posting a "run by" to honor our Veterans, POW's and MIA's. I am particularly keen on this now as I have a 20 year old grandson that has been in the Marine Corps for 18 months now, stationed at 29 Palms, CA. He is a leader of gun crew, whatever that means,

    So, we need to be thankful to all who serve now and to all who gave some part and especially those that made the ultimate sacrifice to keep the us all free and able to do as we wish.

    We got to do some fun running this morning on Steve Davis’s KCS 3rd Subdivision Layout in Coweta Oklahoma this morning. The Layout was featured in this month’s Railroad Model Craftsman magazine. I took my SKOL grain train down and gave it a chance to stretch its legs.

    Yes indeed it is Russell! Steve is also an excellent host. He has monthly Operations Session as well. He has also included some very neat technology on the road, signaling, RFID Car tracking, dispatching just to name a few. I’m proud to know him and get to run trains on his railroad.

    Thanks,
    Dale

    Caught a Milwaukee Road local in between switch moves.

    Presumably the crew was in the restaurant behind the train.

    I like the different power on the railroad. Did this special run have to go all the way to Kansas to return back to Watco rails? Nice pics, I think it would be fun to find a couple C420s and have A&M power run the Fort Smith dodger on the layout some day.
