I recall seeing this or similar wagon train somewhere in TRW in the past.

I still have plenty of trees to work on and plant some of them.  I also got decals from @weathering solutions , including rust spots, streaks, cement streaks, and graffiti.  Hope to get to try these out since it will be 18* outside for highs all weekend.

It's been a bit of a rest week for the team of Sam and Mike on the Kanto sub while we wait for the panel to be finished - out final wiring has been pulled and terminated so we're out of the train running business but before that occurred we ran a bunch of different stuff to test the track under as many conditions as possible...





A CN passenger consist diverted to our mains and we saw a rare "skytop" lounge car..... cool!





A tuscan beauty arrived; a Canadian Pacific passenger consist complete with 2200 series coaches and finished off with Cape Churchill; a classic heavyweight solarium..





Some foreign road vans showed up....







and some never before seen, new trailers arrived....



After some rebuilding, repainting and reweathering a small fleet of Gunderson chip gons went into service.....

and the layout is working fine.....

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!

I got the last of the decals applied to the current group of locos. All except for some number boards and such that I'm making at home. I ran out of colour ink so this is where it ends for now.

Decided to break out the MJRX SD35R to pull a train. I've had it for a few years. A pic of this engine was on the front page of rrpicturearchives.net and it interested me enough that I wanted to try and replicate it in N scale.

Continuing my rebuilds of cars I needed when I modeled Pennsy but now don't need for the New Haven, finally primered this 14 section (from a RR car)





Still an 8-1-2, a couple of PB 70s, and two modernized P70s to finish up and paint. Did any of these PRR cars run on the NH as pool or through trains?

And for my generic UP train, a lunch car made out of the KATO diner

Puddington:  I'm fairly sure the CB&Q never owned a woodchip car, but yours looks reasonable.  I like the idea of using the covered hopper scheme on it.

But what is that SP&S car?  I can't recall ever seeing a chip car that looked like that anywhere in the Inland Northwest.  An SP prototype from western Oregon, maybe?

This week's work on crane idler BCOL 6502 included fabrication of the flatdeck end of the car, and a combination of brass strips and styrene L-girders to make up the centre sill which I am hoping will successfully join the two halves of the car:
