Interesting, @Point353.  Conveniently, I just ordered some Liquid Mask from Microscale when I ordered the decals yesterday.  I would prefer not to paint and just use decal patches, but this is always an option.

Thanks,

I received a second display cabinet today, which almost matches the first one that I bought a couple of years ago.  The felt backing is different, but I don’t mind.  Once they’re loaded, that likely won’t be as noticeable, and I’m really using these for convenient and safe storage, as opposed to “displaying.”




I need to get the shelves loaded, because, until I do, the layout looks like I’m modeling Larry’s Truck and Electric (LTEX Rail).  :D

Same here.  Someone asked me the other day how many I had.  So I went and counted.  I have 83.   :facepalm:  For a sub that sees 4 trains a day, 2 in each direction, that uses the same power for each trains return trip

I know that feeling. I have to keep a spreadsheet for my fleet of 476. I may just possibly have a problem...

I want an N Scale GE U33/34/36C!

Looks like you hired Todd Treaster's interior decorator.  :D
Is the felt lining for those display/storage cases available in plaid?  ;)

@davefoxx,  looking really good Dave.  Now this just brought something to mind vis-a-vis track cleaning.
Maybe the SC has a MOW weed killing tank car?

Haha!  They're going to need it!  Not a bad idea for a future project.
