    I have not posted for 4 weeks due to a problem with my photo hosting provider.

    In addition 3 weeks ago I fell in the parking lot while a downpour was going on and sprained my ankle and twisted my knee. I thought it was getting better until I went bowling and it really hurt so I went to the orthopedic surgeon, who gave me some braces to wear for support. He then called me while I was driving to work and let me know I broke my Tibia but no cast was necessary at this time.

    McKeen Models Piggyback Flat modified from a 50' Boxcar that the Southern ile and Norfolk Southern made while waiting for new cars to haul 45' and 48' trailers. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with Mask Island Decals. The Trailer is an Athearn Model, painted with Floquil BN Green and Silver paints then lettered with Microscale Decals.

    Exactrail PS 4427 Covered Hopper Kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray and lettered with Oddballs Decals. The Rock Island purchased thousands of the cars for hauling grain to export ports replacing old 40' boxcars in the mid 60's era.

    Thanks for looking, will be posting more later.

    Bowser 1958CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray and lettered with Herald King Decals. The Ann Arbor after the DT&I let it go bankrupt after Conrail and PC mess in 1976 had to replace the 100 DT&I covered hoppers and leased a bunch of cars from Chicago Freight Car to facilitate the 20 cars of sand sent to the Ford Brookpark plant from the Yuma MI sand pit on a daily basis.

    [​IMG]

    McKeen ACF 50' Boxcar Kit, used a IMRC 8' Plug Door for the second door and added the extra rods on the door using Evergreen rod. Also cut out the cast floor and installed a Details West Hydra-Cushion underframe and Moloco Extended Coupler pockets with Plano Walk over platforms over the couplers. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red, Armour Yellow and Silver paints then lettered with Mask Island Decals. Car was used in Campbell's Soup Traffic out of Napoleon OH as indicated by the 1090 over the reporting marks.

    Nice looking looking layout and table. Looks like a good replica of the Tomhannock Viaduct in the background.

    Thank you. Yes, the viaduct worked out really well. I designed the layout to be moved and it was a good choice. My new layout too will be designed to move, though this time in retirement, it'll be my wife and I deciding the destination instead of my employer. ;)

    The highway crew doesn't seem too interested in the passing BNSF local and SP steam special.

    Yes, I managed to bowl Friday night, not as well as I would have liked, but I did have a 216 to go with a couple of 170 games. No pain will be seeing the doctor again on next Friday for a checkup.
