A fellow modeller is changing scales and he had this interesting railcar that I just had to add to my roster. It's custom made and is a solid casting so it's quite heavy.

I'm been working on the "rust streak" portion of my weathering book for the past couple of weeks.  The subject will be a Soo Line caboose, much like the one that Pud made a few years ago and was a featured header image.  In fact, the chapter will be dedicated to Pud since seeing his work gave me the inspiration.  I don't want to give anything away (yet), but for now enjoy one of the steps:

Those 70 footers are awesome. BART cars were shipped on long flats -  Growing up in San Diego (Chula Vista) Rohr Aircraft - AT&SF and SP hauled them from SD to SF. The SP sub (SD&AE)San Diego and Arizona Eastern ran them from Chula Vista to AT&SF yard in San Diego. More on my old blog. http://sandiegoandarizonaeastern.blogspot.com/2010/12/bart-cars-built-at-rohr-in-chula-vista.html

Glad to hear your book is still in the works! Your first volume and Rich Yourstone's issue of NSR have a prominant place together in my library.

I'd love to show off my experimentation with the NJI signals, but unfortunately Photobucket is being a PITA and won't let me upload any photos. See the relevant product thread.

I had credit at the LHS, so I sprung for a Fed Ex Ground tractor trailer.  Man are these things great.  Going to have to get a part time job to pay for all these trucks Trainworx is releasing in the future.

And here is a shot of the Fed Ex Ground, Fed Ex Freight I got last week, pulling a 40' Concor trailer I decaled years ago with some spare Fed Ex decals I picked up somewhere (man does that trailer look dingy compared to tractor, and a UPS Trainworx tractor and DigCom Designs UPS Freight 53' trailer.

Here is another video from my trip to Berlin:


This is the Wulheide Parkeisenbahn, 600mm gauge. It is a mostly child run railroad, common in Europe, and is only 15 minutes outside of downtown Berlin.

This is my Ntrak Module, I have a long ways to go, the cork and track is just there for a mock up, and not attached. It will be a station scene, with a streetcar/trolley/light rail line. Prototype is roughly going to be based on Neubrucke, Germany.
