    Last night i was fooling around with the camera and thought i'd take some different pics to show different things.

    The photos have all been reduced to 800x600 and are under 200K.

    These photos are of Proto 87 wheelsets in Accurail S2 rollerbearing trucks. They also compare the P87 wheel to the NMRA RP25 wheel.

    Anyone still want these? http://mscd.edu/~jimenez/package.JPG

    These pics are of an Athearn Blomberg B with the bearing caps installed to actually work.
    Note, i'm now running sand lines directly from the frame- no longer from the sideframe.

    I know some of them pics might be fuzzed or the lighting weird, but i'm still learning! [​IMG]

    They stick like glue to the rails... As long as you don't have any real bad trackwork. I could even get em to go thru an Atlas Custom Line No. 6 halfway reliable... Of course i wouldn't recommend that way for any serious operation.

    Kinda weird i got the Blomberg photos sharp really close while i couldn't get the truck pics as good. I think it had to do with keeping the camera stable.

    Yeah, it probably should be, but i'd thought i'd let the various scales see the Proto 87 stuff-

    A few quid! [​IMG] I'd say a few more...

    I'll move this to HO to continue the discussion and leave it here as well for those that want to look.

    Nice pics. [​IMG]
