Interesting idea for the loads as well.  I never thought of "log bunks" for steel slabs, but why not?

Good 'ole Kent.  They've prettied up the place since I graduated in '86 and moved on.  But I still recognize that scene.  The station was a restaurant called The Pufferbelly when I was at Kent.  I worked the door and cleaned at a bar called JB's Up that had a lot of blues bands(the basement was also a bar JB's down and was mostly punk) a few blocks north of this location.  Used to watch trains go by while sitting on the top landing of the fire escape while keeping folks from sneaking in this door with a one that is cold. Had a nice overhead view from there. Good times indeed.

If there are fish in that little creek/river, that looks like a great place to enjoy two hobbies for the price of one.  Cool pic.

A return to Northern Pacific this week.  An arch window diner.  I still need to do the roof and underbody and add another window to the aisle side.

After a bit more than two months, the contractor has left - with everything as good or better than before.  Now begins the long slow cleaning and testing of the layout.  Maybe we'll see trains next week...

Nice work Andrew, as usual. Did you start with a Rivarossi body?

Thanks Otto!  Yes, this is the good ol' Rivarossi diner.  The general window arrangement is correct.  The vestibule ends are from arch window coach castings that Gregg Scott did.  I also cut out the small window for the center of the car from one of the coaches.  The steps are castings made by Joe Valerio from Micro-Trains heavyweights.

Another Kent State Alum here! That's a super nice area of town to get lost in with the trail that goes along the stream and of course the ol' B&O mainline. I remember cycling across that bridge many times in the daytime, and walking over it at night after trips to EuroGyro.

I started working on another NS B40-8W. This time I'm going to make it look more like an ex Conrail locomotive. I replaced the cab with a CR style C40-8W one and after a little cutting and modifying I got it to fit the B40-8W sill pretty well.
