    I do not remember what year the 4449 went to New Orleans. Here's my version with 4451 and an SD-45 helper. Here they are passing through the oil patch. Must be in New Mexico as you can see the cliff dwelling ruins in background. :D

    Great looking locomotive!

    I am hoping to get something posted. The football game for tomorrow morning was canceled and after being in the rain for today’s game I don’t mind. I was going to do something tonight but with all the rain we got some water in the basement. Not much but I had to deal with it. No damage as everything was off the floor just in case.

    Tom-

    I see we have a rust aficianado (I checked the spelling).
    Here is a shot of the same from the side before finishing the rest of the scene and the water pour with FAMOWOOD.

    Oil based pastel here and there before air brushing, dark umber or something similiar, just for the texture.

    Great shots, as usual, everybody. I'll second the congrats on the shots by Stefan.

    For me, two shots of the Kato Unitrack ballasting in progress - here,
    doing turnouts:

    Yes, it takes quite a while to do these carefully. In the end, worth it.

    Take care, all!

    John:

    Here is a closer view of the ballasting between the ties on the Unitrack of the JJJ&E.
    The rail was painted a mineral red color with some rust added and the ties were individually painted a railtie brown:

    Bob-

    You have put my mind at ease about the appearance of the Unitrack. Nice boxcars, too.

    Mark:

    Now you proceed full steam ahead and plan your Unitrack addition.

    Make sure you paint all the Unitrack before it's fixed in place.

    Have fun.... [​IMG]

    mark:

    The magnets can be installed in the roadbed after the Unitrack is laid down without problems.

    It's just as easy to do beforehand after everything is painted.
