    Good morning from cloudy and cool Northeast Ohio!

    First up is an IMRC 40' PS1 Boxcar Kit, painted with Scalecoat II Boxcar Red and Black paints, then lettered with Speedwitch Media Decals. The Lehigh Valley got the first order of PS1's made by Pullman Standard and these were used in general service. These were sold to Evans Products in the late 60's and leased back and were painted in PC Green. A lot of the bankrupt railroads in the 60's and 70's did this.

    Next is an Athearn ACF 4600CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray Paint and lettered with Oddballs decals. The ACF 4600 CF Car was used by a lot of railroads as it was a Plate B car and could make it into sidings that the ACF 4650 car could not.

    This is the first Tangent G43 Gon that I am assembling, this one will be in PRR and the others will be in PC, most will be fitted with coil cradles for transporting coiled steel.

    Thanks for looking!

    Today is my 75th birthday. My last two photos are posted today. Photography and scenery are my thing. The first photo is one you've seen before. It highlights my scenery skills. The second is one I have not posted. I've saved it for last. It is my favorite. I'm finishing layout #11 today as well. Last one. If I get some good photos you may see them down the line. Thank you.

    I really like how the two trees on the sides "frame" the scene. [​IMG] [​IMG]

    Wow, finally after many years of puttering around with his project I finally finished it today. My buddy will be happy. An HO 1947 American Freedom Train. Athern PA, Wathers baggage car with end doors added, three Athern coaches modified to resemble PRR P70 display cars, two Walthers heavyweight sleepers and finally a Walthers lounge observation.

    Happy Birthday Jim! Aka - HOExplorer! Your modeling surely sets the bar up higher for us all!

    I spent last Sun at a show in Fargo, got a couple of pics from layouts there, but this is my favorite, for obvious reasons!
