Very interesting photo Richie... Looks like northern Manitoba? things are definitely another world up there... :)

I started working on a Walthers State line farm supply, its going to represent a late 40's automotive garage.

I've modified the roof line and since I'm going to have both side doors open I'm adding a little bit of an interior.

I'm tackling a couple of undecorated MT 56' General Service tank cars.  Two will be Procor, labeled for hauling Hydrogen Peroxide, and a third will be for hauling vegetable oil for potato chip plant I have on my layout.  I used pictures from rrpicturearchives.net for decal and striping positioning.  I also added conspicuity striping to a few other tank cars that did not have them applied from factory.

Also started on some CSX covered hoppers, and am somewhat disappointed with Microscale and their corresponding CSX covered hopper decals.  A large contingent of 2 bay CSX hoppers are in the 22xxxx series, yet neither of the sets have remotely enough 2's included, none that are back to back.  :facepalm: I would figure if they were doing the research for these sets, they could include a representative number of #'s for the corresponding cars.   :x

Been fixing doo dads and such, trying to get organized to start working on the yard extension but mostly just playing with trains....

Had an old friend (he's a retired RCAF Sabre jock)over and we were talking about all the train travel he did while in uniform including on combines. His memories are sharp and clear of those trips so I put one on.



After running the combine it occurred to me I hadn't tried a steam engine on the Kanto sub.... I don't have many butI do have a couple of foobie MP Pacific's that run quite well so.....





Makes me think a nice CPR Connie would be great for excursions.... ( I had two figures with no faces and they drove me nuts so I shopped in a face... which I hate more...... oh well; nothing ventured, nothing gained...)



Ran a ten car Great Northern heavyweight consist behind the improbable lash up of an SP&S F unit and GN RS1.... just 'cause....

Once in a while a Pacific Great Eastern consist is seen in these parts (after all; they run the barge service on Lake Angelo)...







None of these were all that odd but the caboose had us all stunned - a very old, truss rod Drover style caboose.... the last one on the PGE roster and usually never seen outside the yard....



(For my PGE purists the drover vans were long gone by the 50's but I had the "Hackmaster" Marty Coil make me one years ago so it needed to have a run...)

Finally; my buddy Jim got to see his "gourmet diner" in person when he dropped over this week..... couldn't get over how small and detailed N scale is.... that's the kind of reaction I love....

I finished up my Q waycar project this week with the 3973.  It's not an exact replica of the prototype but I have that luxury since the Burlington is not my primary road ;)

Nicely done Adam. What Microscale set are you using?

Love that PGE consist. The loco decals, are they Daly Designs?

@Philip H it is set #60-1466, Various Procor Tank Cars.  It needs more 4's.  :D  :facepalm:

Mike (Puddington), how do you smoke the steam loco smoke? P-shop, or the old cotton on wire time exposure trick?
Looks nice.

The opening picture was taken at Churchhill, Manitoba, on the Hudson Bay Railroad, as Missaberoad suspected.

My question is "What is that locomotive?"  There are two of them, and my first thought was the rear of a BN F45.  But it's not an F45, and BN 6448 was an ex-GN SD45.  It looks like it has either a steam generator or HEP generator, which matches the passenger train.  So what is it?  Second hand FP45 or SDP40F?  Something uniquely Canadian?

Locomotives are Via F40PH-2 units rebuilt in the early 2000's.  :)
