    This is the prototype area that I was modeling. Things had to be compressed a bit.

    Good morning from cloudy, cool and rainy Northeat Ohio! (Sounds like a broken record)

    Russell, nice picture, don't think I have ever seen that view before.

    Managed to get a couple of cars done this week and progress on another.

    Buffalo Creek Railroad was a joint venture of the Erie and Lehigh Valley to servce the grain elevators and flour milling factories in Buffalo, New York. They had over 1,00 boxcars for shipping flour bags across the country. Car is an Atlas ACF 40' Boxcar kit with a 7' Door, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and Black Paints, then lettered with Smokebox Graphics decals.

    Proto 2000 52'6" Greenville Gondola kit, the DT&I purchased 100 of these cars in 1943 and in the 60's sent many of them to the Ann Arbor for transporting steel coils, this is one of the cars retained by the DT&I with the change from Boxcar Red to Black paint on the car, Scalecoat II Paint used and lettered with Herald King decals.

    Finished the PS3 Open Hopper kit, will be painting and decaling the car in the future.

    Thanks for looking!

    I was talking with my 89 year old dad, and we were discussing the rapidity of developments in technology. How that for thousands of years, man went no faster thsn a horse.z
    Then the Steam Locomotive was invented...in 1869, the connected the East and West coasts.travel time went from months to weeks.
    100 years later they landed a man on the moon.
    Fifty years later, I am sending this via a device that has more computing power than the computers that sent a man to the moon.
    Happy National Train Day .
