    Good, morning from cloudy, cold and windy Northeast Ohio, we were supposed to get snow and a wintry mix last night buy it looks like we only got the wintry mix.

    Russell, nice looking locomotives, but it's hard to disguise the N&W Y6b under that cab-forward.

    I managed to get a couple of cars done this week!

    LBF 50' FMC Double Door Boxcar kit, removed the poorly done cast on ladders and replaced with IMRC ones from the scrapbox, also added A-line Sill Steps in place of the cast plastic ones. Car was painted with Scalecoat II NP Light Green paint and lettered with Champ Decals. The SP&S ordered these FMC/Gunderson cars in 1970 to deal with the increased lumber traffic out of the Pacific Northwest. Like the DT&I I think they regretted the yellow lettering on green paint.

    Exactrail Evan 4780CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II ATSF Red and lettered with Oddballs Decals. Evans in the 1977-1981 period built about 6,000 of these covered hoppers to deal with the increased grain traffic in the midwest. Garvey Elevators bought some of these cars new and took over the leases on other cars to service their elevators, the first cars were painted in this red scheme, the later cars were painted in Cascade Green with the same lettering.

    Here is my Pennsy N1s 2-10-2 with a coal drag on the Strongsville Club Layout.

    Thanks for looking!

    Yeah, but it was a fun kit bash for a friend. He was happy with it.:) There was not much available in N scale back then so you played with what you had.

    Love that old ten wheeler. The St. Louis, Iron Mountain and Southern boxcar is also interesting. Never heard of that. I assume it was a local shortline.

    Iron Mountain Route became part of MoPac. Charlie Duckworth published a book recently:

    https://www.amazon.com/Down-Iron-Mountain-Route-Pictorial/dp/B07CNS274X

    The decals for the Iron Mountain boxcar are available from K4 Decals.

    I checked on the link. Looks like a very useful reference for anyone modeling what appears to be an interesting railroad.

    I remember seeing a few of these SP&S cars. Their paint was not holding up well to weather. They green looked more like faded olive drab and the lettering was difficult to read. But I still wish I had taken pictures.

    As a trivia note, it's interesting that Arnold Rapido chose the lesser known StLIM&S as a road name on some of their very earliest N Scale. This stock car dates from the latter 1960s.

    That's a fun way to close out a chapter in your road's history Tom. I did the same on my N Scale Delaware, Susquehanna & Northern two years ago with an Office Car Special. Life threw me a curve ball shortly after the demolition and DS&N v3.0 has been on hold ever since. I'm hoping to finally get underway with it sometime soon.

    Picked this up off of eBay. A custom painted engine by Scott Lupia. Nice to finally get a local short line railroad represented on my rr.
