Despite a return to work, this week saw considerable progres on the circuit breaker panel and the helix occupancy circuit.  I also made good progress on the twin trailer flat car project:

Seriously Richie, that is awesome.

I'm liking that Uncle Pete steamer Richie..well done !

I managed a few things other than the 8-1-2....

The second GHQ CN 8 hatch reefer made an appearence... wiggly worm livery...





The car leading the reefers is a converted 40' boxcar for chip service....



The IM boxcar is idea for the conversion as it has a separate roof.
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!

Hobby time this week was consumed painting lots and lots of snow-covered pines.  I painted the remaining 16' of a 19' backdrop with the snow scene at Farron summit.  If I ever have to paint a snow-covered pine again, it will be too soon! :)











The Flikr album has a few high res shots of the backdrop, or I could post them here if they are of interest.

Next week I will begin painting and "snowing" the track at Farron.

Very cool. Also, Mark Dance, I love the "flow" of the layout. Those curves look great with the train snaking through them.

Finished a few White River Southern units.

GP15s 1500 and 1501


SW9 1300


I finished a GP18 for them as well, but the picture is crummy so I won't waste your time with it, but last week I started in on a model of one of the MBTA F40 rebuilds, splicing in a short section of another F40 between the 2nd and 3rd fans.

Here's my contribution for this week.

Commissioned a custom paint job for a 'slightly enhanced' stand-in version of
Santa Fe U28CG, using a Kato U30C as the starting point:



Yes, I know the actual ATSF U28CG's didn't have the yellow/black stripe, had steam generator
behind the cab, had warning headlights on the low hood nose.....

But I like the yellow/black stripe and it's my railroad.   For the time savings on the detailing,
a stock Atlas/Kato U30C off that auction site, and a set of specific instructions to Doug Gary
( http://www.emperortrains.com ) for a fair price....

A good-enough balance for today's time-challenged modeling :-)
