I started moving my photos from RailImages to Picasa. I've got all the photos for future Thursday Proto Photo and "How to YOU Weather" posts onto Picasa already.

A 2nd contri:   although not N scale ( approximate size of this model of a
bridge under construction is HO), this diorama in   Deutsche Museum in Munich, Germany is
inspiring.

A German member of our forum emailed me and told me the following model in the
Deutsche Museum in Munich, Germany, is of the Müngstener bridge between cities
Solingen and Remscheid in Germany  (he is from Solingen:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solingen ).   Thx for the input, Harald!








Have a great Memorial Day Weekend!

Took this pic last night on our 2TRAK layout.Two of my Athearn SD70Ms hauling the freight.



Built this friday and took pics last night on the same layout.It's two DPM Hilltowne Hotel kits bashed together.I bought the kits two years ago for $3.00 apiece.I think it is way too tall so I'm planning to remove 2 floors.That way I can post it again next Sunday. ;D



It will still be the biggest building downtown.

Catt, don't change a thing... that looks great.  Make it a big downtown department store, like Higbees or Marshall Fields!

Here's my achievement du jour...




Reworked Consolidation pilot.

Work in progress on BLMA'ising an E&C/MBF/Huberts 65' Mill Gon.







Seems I'm missing a step. I'm still deciding on whether to stick with the Z scale couplers. They look great, but not sure how they'll operate under the walkway. They've worked so far on their first test run, so signs are good. Thats a Hays Bros baled aluminium load and the ladder is a cut down transistion era box car ladder  ;D

No modeling, but on my one free day I did do some railfanning along the CSX and NS mains, plus do some research on a shortline near where I'm presently living.

Should have those pics in my Railimages albums this weekend when I finally fill up my photo chip.

Hey, that is nice. I love the ground cover underneath. Nice use of the photo backdrop too.
