    Nothing finished this week, the Stongsville Historical Society has their Harvest Festival this weekend, and since our club is located there we will be open for viewing! I will be taking my PRR Ore Train for viewing and here are a couple of pictures of it on the layout.

    Power is provided by Stewart C628 & C630 with added details like lift rings, grabs, antenna's and finished with diesel decals from Microscale. the 36 ore cars are all Stewart/Bowser G39/G39A cars with ore loads by Dan Pikulski followed by a Bowser N5 caboose.

    Thanks for looking!

    Looks like this came right out of a pictorial style of book. :)

    A Gulf & Pacific heavyweight observation car pauses at the East Hannah Vista depot, 10:45 PM September 25, 1964, then another shot of the depot after the train leaves.....

    I've always enjoyed being at a depot during the evening. After the train departs there comes a relaxed sensation and quiet settles in once again. This scene reminds me....

    Boxcab; I'm with you 100%. Just the serene atmosphere around it is magical....a shot from the other side with a lone passenger on the platform, and the REA guy busy with the load that just came in:

    Franklin, a "flag stop" on the prairie, also after the last train of the day has departed:

    Although not a depot; the Hannah Vista freight depot late at night as security keeps a watchful eye out....

    I have been working on this Walther's Merchant's Row III for a while. And then some one published this photo! The first shot is my model, the second is the prototype. Building.jpg Joyce Block Wlater MR III.jpg
