    Good morning from mostly sunny and warm Northeast Ohio!

    Two new cars this week!

    [​IMG]

    After getting the load installed, I decided to complete another New Haven Depressed Center Flat, painted with Scalecoat II Black and Tamiya Brown paints then lettered with Champ Decals. I also used A-line Sill steps in place of the plastic ones and added grabs at the end of the car. Used for transporting small to medium size transformers from a GE plant in Connecticut. Now I have to find a load for this car.

    Athearn PC&F RBL kit, painted with Scalecoat II Wabash Blue and lettered with Oddball's decals. ART was founded by the MP & Wabash (Both Jay Gould RR's) to supply RBL's and RP's for the perishable traffic from the growing areas to the cities and competed with PFE, BREX, etc for this traffic.

    Pair of Athearn SD45's with a general freight including some recently finished cars on the Strongsville club layout.

    Thanks for looking!

    CN F7A/B pair 9062/9063 taking a train out of the yard and onto the main:

    The town spur branches off to the right. The "DIV" sign indicates the dividing point (on the right-hand track) between the power section of the yard and that of the town. The town can be switched between its own independent supply and that of the yard.

    From 02/1988, the engine terminal on my second N Scale Delaware, Susquehanna & Northern. My employer transferred me two years later and while the layout survived the move, there was no room for this table in the new house. :(

    Really nice picture. Not an expert by any means, but couldn't resist doing a little tinkering with smoke and snow effects in MS Photos.

    One thing I can say about n scale; it gives you the opportunity to build BIG factories in a small area.

    Really like the buildings at odd angles and all the little nooks and crannies that result. Makes for all kinds of very interesting small vignettes.

    The lower staging yard is jam packed, holding trains awaiting movement to the classification yard once layout construction to classification is completed.

    A week late to post but here we go.

    Below is the Hindsight Industrial Rail System, with their business/party train. Out for a 4th of July spin, headed eastward on the Alternate run around thru the main yard.
