    A shot here to kick things off this weekend. A MoPac Tenwheeler is poking out of the shadows between building as it spots cars to unload at the melt house. Boss man in the blue suit is checking out the trash along side one of the shop buildings.

    Great Sugar Land pictures, Russ. I like the siding between the buildings.

    Nice Rock Island paint, Colonel.

    For me, here is a kodachrome GP9 as SP3849 switching a newly painted Herzog gondola over Salado Creek.

    Here is another view of the Salado Creek low water crossing. Lilly pads to the right in the corner of the stream. [​IMG]

    Hope you can see these pictures. If not, maybe you can make a link.

    [edit]All is well. :confused:

    Thanks Stefan. It is modeled after the Imperial Sugar Refinery here in Sugar Land, Texas.

    Great photos on your site. I really like this one. "Somewhere in the West"

    I glued together Midwest boards (there are five going width wise there in N scale) I used a N scale ruler to make the cuts between the boards every twelve feet. Either my cuts were not deep enough or the ink wash to fill the same was too thin. In any event, I have three more bridges with which to perfect the technique. I might be using lumber that is too thin. If I cut deeper, the strip separates. Any suggestions??

    Great shots, all.
    Russ- I like the detail on the roof on the right.
    Bob- What material on the tree between the two white trunked trees? It looks perfect for the less robust leafage.

    This weeks images are of Greendell on the NJ Cut-Off. The station is scratchbuilt as well as the overhead road bridge and the tower which is just out of view on the left. The Santa Fe FT's just look cool in green scenery. Had to do it.

    This next shot of Greendell is from across the tracks, up on the hill. The concrete tower I built is now in the bottom left of the image.

    This last shot is just above Greendell station. This is just one of the scenes on my old layout which really had nothing to do with anything.

    Nice pictures, Scott. I like the scene the best. I know it is Santa Fe, but it reminds me of Pennsylvania or someplace back East (USA). Very nice scenery.

    Very nice, Scott. I won't have anything this weekend. If luck holds, I'll have a few pictures next time. Luck hasn't been holding recently. So here's a shot of a HoJo's kitbashed from a bunch of Bachmann train stations:

    All the trees with white trunks are Gum trees in various stages of leafing.

    Well, it was kinda generic, due to the source, but now you mention it--yeah, I drove, or idled, past that place many times for many years until the direct route over the Bourne Bridge was completed. Then I idled elsewhere.

    Thanks for the compliments guys. Digging up these pictures every weekend and seeing what you guys are all doing is inspiring. I stopped at Secret Weapons apartment this past week and ran some trains on his layout. All that has pushed me back into N-scale. I am, once again, building a layout. This time it is 2'x6' and is a switching layout. Was doing wiring tonight and it felt good to be back in the saddle. I will get some photos of the new layout soon enough. All I have now is track and foam.

    One more; just did this one.

    The Battleboro, Texas switcher pulls today's 22 car train past the East Yard icing racks on the way to switch the several industries in Battleboro. Today we have a little extra power with a GP9/F7B/GP20 lashup. It should be too much power unless there is a need to move long strings of tank cars for Texas Railcar Repair. Sometimes it is required and that always throws the job behind schedule and makes us late. Wish that dispatcher would coordinate this better!! :( Most of these cars are for Texas Railcar Repair that requires chemicals, paint, steel, chemical waste and steel scrap removal. We will probably get stuck over there waiting for the icing racks to clear. Rats!!

    It doesn't get better than this!! :confused: Unless, of course, I was riding on the Kansas City Terminal run with Don Rickle or some of the other guys. :D :D
