    Perfect lighting, and those "live loads" got a perfect view of the world!

    Managed to get a couple of cars done this week!

    [​IMG]

    I managed to find some more decals and had one Eastern Car Works CH29 ACF Covered Hopper kit left so I built it adding airlines where needed and substituting a Plano Roofwalk and A-Line Sill Steps for the plastic ones in the kit. Car was painted with Floquil Daylight Red and lettered with decals from numerous Herald King, Microscale, and Highball Graphic sets. After the DT&I dropped its association with the Ann Arbor, the Ann Arbor needed to Replace the 100 Ton Covered Hoppers supplied by the DT&I for the 20 cars a day shipment from the Yuma Sand Pit to the Ford Engine Plant in Brookpark, OH. They leased cars from Chicago Freight Car and from the P&LE. This car represents the leased P&LE cars with the data in the old NYC lettering font and the Road Name etc in the Font used by the Ann Arbor which makes for a unique car.

    Branchline Trains 50' AAR Boxcar Kit, with lowered ladders and A-Line Sill Steps. Car was painted with Scalecoat II L&N Blue and lettered with a mixture of Mask Island and Herald King Decals. In the mid 70's the General Mills Toledo plant refurbished and added new ovens to the cereal plant (Company I worked for did all the electrical work for months on this project), so the DT&I need more cars to service this plant, in addition to the new PS Double Plug door cars they acquired some rebuilt cars from Chicago Freight car, the 50' cars were a mishmash of what was available, I picked the AAR with an 8' Door and although the ORER lists them has having 8' Doors I have a picture of one with a 10' Door so anything is possible.

    Awhile back I received my Alco FB-2's so I paired them with my FA-2's and had them on a coal drag at the Strongsville Ohio Club Layout. With all four engines I realized that I needed more coal cars to go with them.

    Thanks for looking!

    A great start this week- Russell and rjthomas gave us a couple of really atmospheric freight shots, Wolf's cow and calf lashup is unusual and cool, and I love that Ann Arbor covered hopper that Rick posted.

    I'm going to throw in one of the last shots I have from the Bluewater club. This one is of the street side of Tom Grambau Jr.'s factory.

    All my stuff is in boxes and I can’t get the layout started until my wife’s craft room is done, which is on hold until I get the new deck built...

    So, here is a throw back all the way to March of 2018 of a train climbing the grade between Slatyfork and Pipe Falls on the late Lin Young’s Grafton & Greenbrier Railroad.

    For this week I present a new acquisition. I found this one on that bidding site and was able to get on the cheap. I had to change the couplers from hook and horn. I had to use Kadee #21 coupler (Medium Undershank) on the rear. The front currently has a Kadee #5 but I think I need to install either a #26 (Long Center Shank) or a #31 (Long undershank). The PRR express reefers are a 8 car set made by Bev-Bel/MDC/Roundhouse. The M-K-T and Missouri Pacific are special runs by MDC/Roundhouse. The caboose is Bowser.
