    Somewhere buried in this model is a Trix K4 Pacific mechanism. The Kato Mikado cylinder, cross head and valve gear replaced the stock pieces.

    Good morning from mostly cloudy and cool Northeast Ohio!

    Missed last week due to my attack of shingles made it so I did not want to do anything and my Brother-In-Law died after a long illness.

    I did manage to finish a couple of projects over the two week period.

    First up is a 40' Atlas 1944 AAR 40' Boxcar Kit, do match the prototype I chose the correct ends of the ones supplied, since the prototype was welded, I removed the rivits from from the battens which look like weld lines after the rivits were removed, added A-Line Sill Steps in place of the fragile plastic ones. Car was painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and Black Paints and lettered with Smokebox Graphics decals. The Bufallo Creek was owned by the LV & Erie and supplied boxcars to the various floor mills for shipment all over the country.

    Next is an old AHM/E&B Valley PS 3 Bay Covered Hopper Kit, substituted a Plano Roofwalk kit for the cast plastic one. Used this kit instead of the Athearn as the E&B car more closely replicates the size of the M&StL cars which were 3219 CF cars versus the 2873 CF cars. Car was painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray paint and lettered with Mark Vaughn decals now available from Clark Probst a noted M&StL modeler.

    It was "Duel" with Dennis Weaver and directed by Stephen Spielberg, from a short story I read in Playboy way back when!

    Continuing the "daytime" (building lights off) overall pictures of the layout; this is the entry door to the layout, which is also windowless. Davidsville is on the left, and Hannah Vista on the right. The center portion (Sean's Oil & Petroleum) is a swing-down part.

    One of eleven modules for my Boston Mountains Sud Division layout. The other ten are under construction. Have been installing tracks and ballast. The tracks are half of the amount needed to complete the mainline which is 33 feet long, a mile for N scale.

    Attended what will most likely be the last Mt Cheam Lions train show.

    Picked up a bunch of someone else's stuff, but who is ever really going to see it anymore?

    A while back I purchased a stash of 60's vehicle kits from Trainboard member Rasputen. I'm finally getting around to post some pictures to show the great detail in his kits. I'm yet to add window glass. I purchased some Canopy cement for aircraft models that I plan to give a try. Some have recommended microscope slide glass, but I would think there are too many uneven surfaces in the models to work well. Thanks Rasputen for offering such diverse vehicles. They sure expand our limited N scale options.
