    An International Great Northern (a MoPac line in Texas) freight crosses an open span bridge. I kit bashed this in N scale from a stock Kato bridge.

    That's a funny-looking 'Rocky' on the flanks of that caboose.....
    Oh, sorry, wrong 'Great Northern'! ;)
    Nice bridge!
    I am about to embark on a huge project of detailing and painting 8 HO engines into D&RGW paint for a RR club friend....

    I started building some lasercut building kits in the weeks before and during the hurricane as well as some detail parts for the buildings.

    I weathered the first two buildings:

    The pile of tires came from Model Tech Studios unfinished.

    The next two buildings have to be weathered:

    Bob,
    In honor of your 3600 posts, I'm posting a Denver Public Library photo by Otto Perry of a 2-8-8-2, D&RGW 3601:

    Hemi:

    Thanks for the photo. The 2-8-8-2 is one of my favorite steamers especially with the feedwater heater up front.

    By any chance do you have a side view of the piping as I have brass feedwater heaters that I want to outfit all my steamers with and really like the detailed piping on this loco.

    Stay cool and run steam.... [​IMG] :cool: :cool:

    O.K. Here goes. [​IMG] O.K., this is my first complete cycle of moving an image from digital camera to PC, to CD, to Railimages, to Trainboard. Now all I gotta do is get better at all of the above.

    Bobby,

    What you need to do is select the photo you want to post, click on the full image then right click. Select properties then copy the link, then paste into image box.

    The reason your pic is small is you copied the libk of the thumbnail. Here is what it should look like.

    Terrific perspective down to the vanishing points on the river and backdrop.

    Bob-

    Those tassles disguised as piles of tires are a terrific touch. I like what you have done with the new kits.

    Nelson- Fine looking town.

    Pete- You work is always at the level of perfection.

    Bob- Nice looking start.

    No photos from me this weekend, as I am moving my layout from a shed into the loft. This means I will have a much longer run and better staging with maybe some more industries on the opposite side of the room [​IMG]
