    Sometimes you just feel like having fun. Now where did I put my Styrofoam tunnel?

    Russell, thanks for starting us out, I think it would be best if that train was hidden in a tunnel!

    Good morning from partly cloudy and warm Northeast Ohio!

    Here is this weeks completed work!

    Eastern Car Works, 2600 CF Airslide Kit, with added airlines then painted with Scalecoat II MOW Gray and lettered with Prime Mover Decals. The Erie leased these cars from General American and they were returned to General American shortly after the EL Merger and were re-leased to other people with the ERIE and Logo painted out.

    Walthers FGE RBL kit, with some added grabs, Moloco End of Car Cushioning Coupler pockets and Plano Walk over platforms added. Painted with Scalecoat II C&O Blue paint and lettered with Herald King Decals. Car was assigned to the Inland Plant of GM in Vandalia, OH for auto parts service.

    My fill in projects redoing the old Athearn 40' Trailers, some had the gusset removed at the landing gear and the grabs from the nose of the trailer as only the FGE trailers had these. Cars were painted with Scalecoat II Silver or White paints and all were lettered with Microscale Decals. Also added mudflaps and if you look closely some have Fruehauf or Strick labels on the flaps.

    Another view of my Stewart C628 and C630 on the Strongsville Club layout with 38 ore cars strung out behind.

    Thanks for looking!

    Nice work! As I think I mentioned (or not), I do square hatch covered hoppers because they look older and "clunkier".

    Well, Airslides only came with circular hatches, the square ones did not seal as well, the DT&I replaced most of their square hatched covered hoppers with circular hatches in the 60's and 70's.

    Paper mockup which revealed several issues which will be fixed, tested again, and eventually printed to cardstock.

    I got a chance to redo it:
    Apartments resized 1900 b20211008_232353.jpg

    Not perfect but I know what I need to avoid / fix with the cardstock version.
    Below is the drawing. Note that the ceilings must be 14' but who's counting?

    This is a reduced size but I'd be happy to email anyone the original on a 'Free Use', (you can't make a profit from it), bases.

    Note: If a mod wants to delete the blurry post on this page that's ok with me. ☻

    This week features a IHC New York Ontario & Western Mogul, 2-6-0 pulling a coal drag past the Water Tower. Train is 14 cars, I wanted to test the limits a little. The loco does have a slight bit of trouble at one point but pulls through.
