I want 10 of those MRS-1s - in Nn3.  If they were designed so that the short hood could be lowered without cutting the frame, so much the better, but I'd settle for the just the original.

Be well

Doing my best!  Here's another shot of a 1990s train.
Wolf, Ryan and Mike (the Modeler),
Nice representation of the "Home Road".... Southern Pacific!
Thanks  :)

Here are my modeling efforts so far this Fall.  I stripped and air brushed these ESM X58’s in early September , and I finally finished the decals on them this past week.  The tooling on these cars is amazing.  This makes a total of six Conrail cars in late 1976 / early 1977 paint schemes that I have decalled for my fleet.  Thanks.

My model of cat tool car BCOL 993032 reached completion last week, just in time for display at the Vancouver Train Expo show:










It has also arrived in time to go to work on extending the mainline from Septimus to Chetwynd Yard.  It is seen here as part of Work Extra 581:




Last night I laid the track-bed from the south switch at Septimus to the first switch in Chetwynd Yard:




In the foreground is the curve coming off the Dawson Creek Subdivision, which I also hope to get laid with track-bed this weekend.

This photo was shot on my n scale Northwestern Pacific layout. An SP C-9 2-8-0 passing over the Russian river south of Hopland California, circa 1951.

Um ... where is your build thread?  :D :D :D

What do you do on a rainy raw open house day ?  You finish building your CF7 from @randgust .




Still need hoses and cut levers on rear.    Thanks to @DeltaBravo and @Blazeman  for stopping by today.

Been working through designing the acid tankcar kit. Proof of concept is done, just need to refine some details. Still have to decide on the frame design as well.

Went to two open houses today and got to see dueling coal dumpers!

Rick also dazzled us with his ability to snatch rocks off flat cars and dump them into barges:

Cool layout photos, Rick! Do I see illuminated taillights in the travel trailer?

Almost everything on Rick Spano's layout is animated and/or lit.
His website (http://scenicedandundecided.net/) contains some videos of his various animations.
His layout is phenomenal!
His layout also includes several animations from the DKS collection of marvels.

DKS had/has a lot to do with that. Top-notch stuff!  :)

Not exactly modeling, but my wife and I went to see "Murder on the Orient Express", a pleasant two plus hours worth of harmless entertainment involving famous stars, places and yes, murder. Some of the computer generated railroad scenes got a bit murdered as well, but one of the unmistakable stars of the movie, the 77"drivered four cylinder French "Mountain" 241 A65 is worth the price of (admittedly senior) admission, lame elephant ears and all :D
Recommended.
Well, back to the train room...
