    Good morning from sunny and cool Northeast Ohio!

    This week's projects that were completed.

    First, one of my club members sent me an article on USRA Boxcar rebuilds one of which was a DT&I Boxcar. I managed to acquire one of the Atlas USRA rebuild kits with the fishbelly underframe and completed it, then painted it with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red #2 and Black paints, and then decaled it with decals from Herald King, Tichy and Mask Island. Car was in engine service for the Ford Plant until the 60' Greenvilles showed up in the late 60's and 15 of the cars stayed in general service until 1973. By the way the paint scheme used was a repaint in 1959 with the new "We have the Connections" slogan.

    Next, another AHM/Robbins Rails PS Covered Hopper kit, where I removed all the plastic grabs and used new ladders and wire grabs in their place. Also removed the plastic sill steps and replaced them with A-Line sill steps. Cars was painted with Scalecoat II MofW Gray paint and lettered with K4 Decals. Car was in general grain service on the CB&Q.

    Newly cleaned base and track and installation of my first piece of flex track on this curve. I like CSX, can you tell?

    Roll by shots

    A U30C and an F7 have the mill turn well under control as it rolls across the Elk River bridge with a long cut of gondolas for the rolling mill on the other side of the river.

    The Ex-PRR caboose on the rear certainly amplifies the Pennsy vibes on this train.

    So far the flex track is working really well. I used to have derailments around that curve at times when running the Kato ES44DC and the containers. It was mainly the containers that jumped the track in that area. I sure hope it keeps working. Told you I like CSX :) Ignore the dings in the wall and the smudge. I can't even see it in normal light, which is fairly dark in this room. Might not be prototypical, but I like it and am having fun :)

    A few more-it’s HO scale and they say it’s the largest display in Japan. Unsure if they mean area or track length. But best one I’ve seen this far.

    Last one I swear. 20 minutes=24 hrs with a ten minute break between each show. Museum has a driving simulators for commuter and Shinkansen. I’ll post some prototype photos in the “Random prototype” page from the other part of the museum.

    That's insanely awesome. The amount of detail is mind-boggling. The crowd scenes in the public squares must have taken a lot of careful, meticulous work. Kudos to the team that built that little piece of Heaven.:notworthy:

    At closing time, they'd be dragging me out of there kicking and screaming. Or catatonic.

    Many thanks for sharing that, @MetraMan01 (y)

    Wow! The money that must be wrapped up in just the human figures. I wonder if they are Preiserlings. Hope they got a volume discount.
