    Good morning from cloudy and wet Northeast Ohio!

    Here is this weeks completed work!

    [​IMG]

    Kadee 50's PS1 Boxcar kit, substituded a 9' PS door for the kit supplied door and painted the car with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and lettered with a mixture of Herald King and Microscale decals, after I screwed up the Microscale set while applying the first decal. Car was one of 100 of that car series purchased for use in auto parts service on the DT&I.

    Tangent Pullman Standard 4740CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II MofW Gray paint and lettered with Prime Mover Decals. Car was one of 125 purchased to serve a new ConAgra Plant in PA on the old L&NE that was converted from a cement mill. Both the PC and EL bid so competively that both bankrupt railroads lost money on each shipment from the plant.

    Thanks for looking!

    I have just bought a 'ream' of 250shets of cardstock and hope to print out both of them this weekend.
    The picture below, (thumbnail) is strangely simillar to my 'model'. I saw it in the basement of a Greek Orthodox Church. Clearly I must have seen similar images in the past.

    From summer 1978, my N Scale road's branchline. Track is Arnold Rapido. The railroad later met its doom when I graduated from college and moved away.

    Sweet little layout! I had some flashbacks of my own HO layout back about the same time, one my Dad built (I suspect now, in retrospect, that he built it as much for himself as for me...:ROFLMAO: ). It also was lost in the transition to higher studies...

    I built my current layout with a bit of inspiration from my old one. So it still sort of lives on.

    Thanks for sharing that and bringing back some of those nice, warm memories.(y)

    @Mike VE2TRV and @Hardcoaler Yes, thanks for sharing. I will be incorporating about 1/2 of my 1st layout into my current. Plan #4 from Wesscott's '101 Track Plans'. I think I need to provide an update of the planned layout.

    @SMR Beautiful! Nicely Done!

    Love the SP pictures, thanks all for posting them. Here is a short YT video of my latest :



    BTW. I am a glutton for punishment, so I downloaded some sound files of small housecats meows and large tiger roars. When I get an ESU LS V5, I will put the new sound into the sound file I pick and replace the "coupler clank' with a new "kitty kat horn". Should be fun.

    Be well and thanks for looking,
    Carl
