    Nice scene composition, once again showing the space advantages of N scale. Such a realisically sized parking area in HO would take up more space than many of us could afford to use for it. Also nice depth to the background scenery.

    Good morning from cloudy and cold Northeast Ohio!

    Finished a couple of cars this week!

    [​IMG]

    IMRC 40' PS1 kit, with lowered ladders on A end and roofwalk removed and A-Line Sill Steps installed. Car was painted with Scalecoat II L&N Blue then lettered with Mask Island Decals. The L&N rebuilt a number of their 40' PS1's in the mid 60's and installed DF Loaders for the shipment of appliances out of Appliance Park outside of Louisville, KY. Many railroads supplied cars to the pools out of Appliance Park including the 40' Hi-Cubes.

    Walthers Thrall 52'6" Gondola kit, matched the Despatch Shops gons pretty well with the right number of ribs and panel spacings so I used it to build this P&LE Gon from the late 50's. Car was painted with Floquil Jade Green and lettered with Mask Island Decals. Used in general service along with thousands of other P&LE, NYC, EL, and PRR gons in the Pittsburgh area.

    Another old picture I had not published, a pair of Athearn GP9's hauling a PRR mixed freight on the Stronsville Club layout.

    Thanks for all the nice likes last week, surely appreciate them.

    The intermodal yard on my last layout. It's something I miss and may build a new one if I can figure out some logistics of making it happen :)

    And yet I had to do some compression to get it all on an NTRAK module. Here is the prototype scene that I was trying to recreate.

    Here is a short 4 minute Y-T video of my SP Daylight runby. Filmed this past Wednesday (supposed to be work day, ha,ha,ha) on club layout in Las Cruces. Hope you enjoy!


    This is an "old" train which includes Kato PA&B from several years ago plus the old Kato Daylight set about the same vintage. I love old stuff! Those PA's will pull stumps. They are all equipped with Dtrax silent decoders. The Mars light is installed but not working properly, when I turn on f2 it does not toggle on/off but rather it is momentary only. That unit is set up on RIP track for decoder check!

    I just realized this train is probably not very prototypical so I refer to rule #1 and besides, it is just fun!

    Thanks for looking and be well,
    Carl

    Nice! The second PA in the black widow paint scheme provides a nice contrast and the line of head end cars is interesting. The old west movie set is cool. Got to wonder if the Daylight would create a blooper much like the pickup truck that went by in the background of an old John Wayne movie.
