    Good Morning from Sunny and Warm Northeast Ohio!

    Did not complete any models this week, spending a lot of time on end of season bowling records and money distribution along with doing some family tax returns.


    Last weekend I took my Atlas GP40 and U33C to the club along with 10 PC Scaletrains PS4785CF Covered Hoppers, 2 Tangent PS4750CF Covered Hoppers, 4 NYC Scaletrains PS4785CF Covered Hoppers and 4 Exactrail Magor 4750CF Covered Hoppers. The Orange C in the PC was applied to 17 GP40's and 1 RS3, supposedly as a sop to the New Haven fans.

    I have been trying to have fun with my favorite hobby lately and that has been searching out logos, making decals, and decorating/updating some of my old intermodal stuff. Following is a total foobie but I am pleased with how it turned out :

    From 11/2017 on my N Scale Delaware, Susquehanna & Northern, now gone, but with plans for a new railroad in the works. Locomotives were all custom painted by me long ago.

    Here is one of newer members of my fleet and my addiction to GG-1’s.

    I have been searching for this scheme on and off for a couple of years. I was hoping when Broadway Limited and Bachmann released their new GG-1’s this would be one of them. The scheme known as the American Railroads scheme was applied to only one locomotive #4902 in 1969. The locomotive hauled the Golden Spike Centennial Limited on its return trip from Washington, DC to New York City. The only HO version I knew of was made by Rivarossi for AHM.

    Knowing this I had been hesitant about paying a large sum on what would be close to fifty-year-old model. For some time, I had been watching several on eBay. The seller of one these made a special offer on the price. This offer made the model very interesting. I also had some promotional money that was due to expire. Using this promotional money and the seller’s reduced price made the model irresistible, thus I pulled the trigger.

    Paying $50 for the model I figured if it did not run, I had a rare shell to work with or a static display piece for the layout. When it arrived, the box was worn, and the plastic protector showed fifty years of discoloring and cracks. I put the loco on the tracks and fired up the controller. I turned the knob and away she went. It ran better than some of the newest locomotives I have gotten over the last couple of years. To say I was happy was an understatement. Now I need to figure out how to change the hook and horn couplers to Kadee’s

    Lehigh Street in 1952. How should I describe this area along the tracks? Tawdry? Sleazy? Or how about, meretricious?

    Well, it's not too bad a neighborhood... a tad grubby but at least there's the burlesque house to brighten up the place.:)
