Jeez, Richie...!  You have enough TOFCs to model probably every PRR TrucTrain that would have been on the rails at any given time in the late 50s.  And they'd look great!

Just having some Conrail fun this weekend.   No building; just loco tuning and running in prep for taking my layout to a train show in 2 weeks.  I've also been enjoying my new GP38.









I've been growing my CR fleet a little:

Thanks!  One of the gons it's hauling is a PC ESM G26...  It will look even better with some X58s and an XiH in tow!

I finally worked out the ability to do the NYC Lot 919 Bay Window that will be very easy for anyone and still have the detail I wanted. So now I can go to metal for the cabeese.


I am almost done with the test builds of the final artwork for two of the four cars in my Wreck Train series.

Just lowered passenger cars and convereted eight more to body mounted couplers....
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!

Looks great Bob.  Don't forget I need three pair of bay windows when you have some time.  8)  I'll also pick up the shorty NYC bay window cabooses when you get to them.

After weeks of inactivity, I have returned to model work with assembly of a CS Models chip car for a friend:






I still have to install the various etched detail parts:  brake wheel and chain, end platform, sill steps and grab irons.

I also installed the headlight and ditchlight housings on my C-630M, and with all of the heavy work now finished, I reassembled the locomotive to get an idea of what it will look like:






Next up is installation of the decoder and LED lighting for the nose lights.  All of the outstanding detail parts are prepared and ready for installation:

I saw the ATH gon behind the second unit, didn't notice the ESM gon behind that.  XIHs within six months.  A tad longer on the X58s, but it will be worth the wait.

Richie,
If you would like to tun your TOFC train, my club has an open house on April 25th and I would love for you to come back and run them. Just make sure you bring your camera.

I have a friend that will be very pleased that work is going forward on the NYC bay windows. I'm forwarding this to him now..

Got a new Heki static grass tool last week. I've been playing on the HO layout first....

The first test -




Another spot.

I modeled with my wallet. Got this in HOe scale:

It has DCC, but unlike the N scale 44T you can snap the decoder off of the circuit board and be left with tabs to solder on a different decoder. Might leave it though since it runs good (slow) on DC.

That diagram has me drooling!  It's almost good I have to wait because I've been spending too much as it is!

I misled you a little...  The ESM gon is far enough back in the train you don't see in in those shots.  Here it is behind an idler hopper.



And the view from the road a few moments earlier...
