'Tis Sunday again. What have y'all got to share that's of interest to your fellow asshats??  ;D

I seem to have spent the week fixing stuff and looking for other stuff. Ever have a five minute job stretch into two hours because you could not find a tool? or a part? that was in front of your nose all the time??  ;)

Spent most of the day clearning out a spare bedroom.  Gonna be my layout room.  Finally got off myasshat (yeah I stand on my head alot) and started this.  Also worked on some decking for some flatcars.  Roughing them up and painting, etc.

Well; I thought I'd contribute for once.... I've been longing to have a pair of Chicago Great Western F3's..... in 1970 there was another in a long series of power shortages on the CP rail system. CP leased numerous odd units including a number of ex CGW F3's... ironically these were some of the only F3's to ever work the CPR as they never had any of their own...

I decided to start with a F3B... and here it is teamed with a CP FP7A... it's F3A is coming.....

Model railroading isn't saving my life, but it's providing me moments of joy not normally associated with my current situation..... Train are good!

Nscalesteve - really great work on the new lokie....!!

Puddington - very cool shot and good looking F3s!!

I managed to get some work done on the photo diorama - specifically the edge of the forest using the helpful comments that I received here (and the other forum   :)  ) as guidance. Still not done, but evolutionary progress....

Well, we had a chance to run some trains again today, and once we got over a couple of technical glitches, things ran along fine.  Tom Mann, Brian Carhart and Ed Kapuscinski worked through a schedule of about a dozen trains, keeping traffic flowing around the n scale Western Maryland.   I really enjoy having these sessions, because it makes me really think about how my railroad works.  Here's a couple shots, and there may be more later from the rest of the crew...


Here we see Tom staying cool and running steam...

Brian and Tom vye for the right of way...

and you know Ed can't be far away when you see this...


It was fun, but my one regret is that I didn't get a chance to shoot some of Tom's fantastic rolling stock...  Amazing work.

Nice find and nice model. Did they ever use the engine or did they just add the yellow reflecting stripes to move the engine to the paint shop?

Trees look good, especially the nice assortment of different types.

What can I say about a guy, a layout and and a controller in his hand and a smile that would convince everybody that this is a great hobby. wm3798, thanks for posting it.

I did not do much over the weekend since I had to play with my new toys, courtesy of the Greenlight Intermodel contest. If you thought about entering next year's contest, this picture should be reason enough to start planing.

Steve, great work and a unique subject.  Hopefully you get every penny that beast deserves!

Steve,
That BNSF unit looks great!!! The only thing I
could see that needs to be done is the cab window
frames. As for me, I'm just about done with this
E7 from PCM for Mec_Fan. All I need to do now is
the grab irons, and put the glazing in.

Jon
