Next up are rivets, then painting then abutments and piers.

Have a great weekend everyone.

Another landmark structure well under way Mark; looking forward to seeing it place !

Slow week; my "pretend company" (as I like to call it when things are slow) got busy this week so I've been actually working as opposed to making excuses and trains... that said...



I was at my LHS (Credit Valley Railway in Streetsville, Ontario) and was picking up "mucho mombo" detail parts and saw this BLMA Wabash PS 4000...... Now; I don't own a single piece of BLMA rolling stock; just haven't seen anything that tickled my fancy... but as I have about 6 Exactrail PS hoppers and have a weird, inexplicable soft spot for the ol' Wabash (maybe because it was a "Hoser road"... kinda...) I tossed it in the basket....

I decided to weather it similar to a reference photo I found on Fallen Flags

http://www.rr-fallenflags.org/wab/wab32064aga.jpg

Not exact by any means but a nice addition to the "ridden hard and put away wet" hopper collection... as seen here with an Exactrail Milwaukee Road hopper....

I also got a "new gig" that is real life railway related.......more about that soon.... suffice it to say I kinda, sort of, but not really am working for a kinda, sort of, soon to be railway................ :facepalm:

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!

Is that the bridge for the lower deck swing gate near Castlegar?

Tim

Yes it is Tim. Compressed to 75%. The smallest of the 6 big bridges on the line. The next one up is over 3' long and is not compressed in any dimension. I am working up my courage for that but it will be very dramatic!

Bill, good looking "scene". What did you use for a light "source"?

Purdy new toy Dave! Time to put it to work.
(The South Jersey Division is awaiting the delivery of a donor 2-8-0 to complete the process of bringing an H10 into service)

My Gibby&Clark desk has finally been removed from my school's woodshop and is in temporary residence at my Uncles. It'll make a good workbench with the addition of a large self-healing mat. Only problem will be getting it into the basement... So I may end up selling it at 50% of its original retail price of $2000.

Hopefully time shall permit the addition of my Dapol GWR Home signal to my N-Trak module.
Photos unlikely, but who knows.

It's an Alco RS3 with a phase III car body (my resin casting) and blunt trucks (Shapeways on Life-Life switcher trucks)

The light source is the room lighting. However the layout is set up in Jamie's photo studio so it's pretty bright in there. Maybe he will see this and chime in.

This shot is a reject from an article I'm working on for NSR.

Been making progress on my scratch built sand towers. Working on lighting them and have one done. Heading to Monroe train show tomorrow morning in hopes to get more leds. Then comes weathering and other ground details.
