    Another from the moldy oldy files. Here we have a guy who fell down right as the camera took the shot. Must have tripped.

    1 UNPATCHED C&NW Dash 9
    and a set of four numerically-matched SD40-2's in UP paint, in numerical order....

    Hey Flash - those hoppers look way too clean. [​IMG]

    Beast - a strange UFO hanging over the far end of your layout. :eek:

    Russ - Great shot. You sure it wasn't a mob hit? Looks like Antonio the hit man was at work. [​IMG]

    I've been doing more weathering. The first is a GN boxcar that I abused:

    I also moved on to Cylindrical Hoppers:

    Here they are on the layout:

    Built this for my cousin for Xmas. It was used as a caboose in the Bay area, and when he was growing up it went right by his high school daily. he actually jumped on for a ride once. Interedting, they put freight trucks on and called it a 'caboose'. [​IMG]

    Bruce in MA: Great weathering. I particularly like the splotches. Just really nice stuff.

    Jon:

    Snow? Really looks nice. Looks cold! Is this your layout theme?

    Heck of a nice job Marty! [​IMG] I have never seen or heard of such a caboose on Espee. Wonder if it was local only for the area?

    FD, this is looking very nice. I have been following the bridge thread. I think you should abandon all this practicing you are doing and just go for it!! Really nice scene.

    It was just local. My understanding it was rebuilt from a Harriman short baggage in the Bayshore shops. It was used on the Colma Branch out of So. San Francisco and went to Colma. Colma is unique. The whole town was cemetaries. The largest deceased population in the United States!!!!!!!!!

    It seems to be the theme for every British layout I have built, (well, 2), and I have even been roped into doing some snow scenics for a small continental narrow gauge mountain shoebox layout.

    Marty:

    Russell Straw was over here running trains for a while. He said that he had seen pictures of it before and that it was, indeed, one of a kind.
