From our NTRAK set up last week.
You've certainly made good use of those modules through the years. Do you have any idea how many set ups it has been?

Here's my viaduct made by Scott Lupia.
I can almost hear the flanges squealing on this curve.
I managed to get two cars done this week, but with their size I should get extra credit!
An Athearn 86' Hi-Cube Boxcar, removed the cast on grabs and replaced with ladders to more give the car a Thrall Built look. The Green Bay and Western had 13 of theses cars acquired in 1964 & 1966, but they all ended up on the Ann Arbor in the 1970s's. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and Floquil Platinum Mist Paints and then lettered with a decal set I acquired when the Dan Manlick Inventory was sold off after his death.
Another Athearn 86' Hi-Cube, on this one I removed the cast on grabs and replaced with wire grabs. Car was in service to the Brownstown Ford Stamping Plant, hence the BRO on the car side, plant was located on the DT&I. Painted the car with Floquil PC Green and Platinum Mist Paints and lettered with Microscale Decals.
Thanks for looking!
New arrival on the JACALAR
Route 66 crossing on my layout; with a Gilmore (later Mobil) gas station modeled after the restored one in LA, and a motor court across the tracks with an approaching Cab Forward (with a little bit of photoshopping for the smoke).
More nice vehicles. Looks like a '55 Nomad at that crossing?
A trio of RS's crossing Hammer Creek.
I have no exact count, but probably have set them up an average of three times a year since 1993.

Been doing some extra detail work on this butte,
And, yes, that is a 'Rocky Mountain Striped Geeraffe" up there! My kids loved that thing when they were small, so it just keeps showing up!
Just some steam shots....
