Also Russ....Dou you have pics of your E-units on your Texas special? Please post if you do.
OK, here yah go.
Awesome modeling and photo. Do you have more posted anywhere? Great work.
I want some of that! :tb-ooh: That's way past cool!
Here is his Railimages Album. Great place.
An RS-3 blocks cars at Myersville while an RS-11 rests at the fuel rack.
Very impressive photos of your layout Todd ! Job well done on the lighting as well.
Fabulous one and all...every one of these shots should win an award or be featured in a "Best Layouts" magazine! You all are great!
COOOOOL! Thanks Russ
Russ, how did you do the corregation on the sides of your E's??
It looks awesome!
I cut them out of corrugated siding sheets from Williams Brothers. I don't know if that product is available any more. However you can get etched brass ones from N Scale Supply. M&R part # [FONT=Arial, Helvetica, sans-serif][SIZE=-1]MRS-60-94.[/SIZE][/FONT]
What is that, Jeff? A freight house?
Is it a model? Or not? I can't tell!
I think it's real, prototype.
Inspiration for weathering a real corrugated steel building along the humid Gulf Coast.
Finally a weekend I could go out shooting!
Here's a few catches this weekend. I went out in search of SD40-2's, and found none. Instead, I found a MILW hopper, with intact (albiet rusty) "America's Resourceful Railroad" placards:
I found a new angle on the BNSF bridge over the Missouri, that had the GN diesel house in the shot, after seeing a Dave Blaze photo on RP.net for inspiration:
Can you say "Ultimate railfan snow machine?" I knew you could:
This guy's spoilin' for a fight with some obstinate snowdrifts:
I have been meaning to post a couple of pics for weeks now. I finished up some kitbashed DMIR side dump cars for my dad about 3 weeks ago. They still need to be weathered but here they are.
They started out as a Walthers kit. I shortened the frame and removed a panel to get them to prototypical length.
Here is a shot of the car end. Notice the ISO 2001 herald. It is a custom made decal.
Very slick, Mike! Had you not told us, I wouldn't have known any better, and thought those were factory fresh cars. The ISO decal is neat.
Hope the pic uploaded. Kinda new at this.
Yup. It came through just fine!
