    Car #12, Tichy USRA Hopper kit with panel sides including the extension, painted with Scalecoat II Silver (with a touch of green paint) and the extension painted with Floquil Reading Green, decals were included with the kit. The Anderson's of Maumee, Ohio purchase several hundred of the Wabash's Panel Side Hoppers and converted them to haul grain from the Maumee Elevator to the Port of Toledo, especially after the St. Lawrence Seaway was completed.

    After I finnished a couple of more G39 Ore Jennies, thought I would take my train of 38 ore jennies pulled by a C628 and C630 to replicate the ore trains comming out of Whiskey Island in Cleveland heading towards Pittsburgh.

    Thanks for looking!

    he finished Union Station with a Reading passenger train headed by a 4-6-2 Pacific by Mehano.

    I went over the station with a light gray pastel and I feel it is not as stark as before.

    From many years ago, a photo of an N Scale cylindrical hopper I painted for a mythical shortline. The area of the Carolinas we live in is known alternately as the Sandhills and the Midlands, so I combined the two. This is one of the few cars I've ever weathered.

    A grimy CN MLW switcher that hasn't seen the wash rack in a long time goes into town for a pickup:

    On the ground floor of the building behind the engine is "my" electronics sales and repair shop...

    There's a handy vacuum tube tester in there for those who need to check out which one is kaput. :)

    Hardcoaler,

    That mythical looks like it belongs in Midland Texas area. Lots of sandhills.

    I have been upgrading my intermodals to what is more common today. I just finished the last 3 cars and 6 containers, so I won't be boring you anymore.

    Yes. Embrace the healing power of "and". I don't have much scenery on my layout yet but I stumbled upon this scene while doing some signal testing. I discovered the tunnel bore is fully scenic'd.

    Well, it looks great!

    And I think the story goes something like this.

    A PESSIMIST sees a dark tunnel An OPTIMIST sees light at the end of the tunnel A REALIST sees a freight train The TRAIN OPERATOR sees 3 idiots standing on the tracks... - Unknown

    If I look for happy accidents will I miss them? Kinda like Schrodinger's cat. I think. I'm not physics minded but I seem to remember he has something to say about cats in boxes.
