Thank you; yes I have some of hte wide vision cabooses to build myself.  Not looking forward to those railings . . .

Those railings have been driving me nuts all weekend...     Making very slow progress on the end handrail assemblies, but getting there.   Definitely not a beginners kit!.

I finished up three more flat cars for my carnival train.

Made some modifications to my layout. Added a Micro Engineering bridge with low clearance, added my own guardrails.

I finally got around to improving the pickup in my first wired decoder install into a LL SW7.  I initially had the wires just stuck in between the shell and the frame, which had mixed results.  So, I drilled and tapped a couple of holes to screw in the wires to. 

Also finished up some more front end deets on the newest SD40-2.   I still need to get out the ALPS and finish those numberboards

I have some Shellscale number board decals running amok somewhere - PM me what you actually need and I can send them to if they will work.

Thanks for the offer, but since I got the Alps I don't have to put on single digits anymore  :D

Finally got one of my Norfolk Southern OCS cars painted and decaled.

Don't try to distract us. Tell me about that 3812.

@dem34 the bridge looks good. What country are you modeling?  :trollface: Sorry, I’m a retired traffic engineer.

Don't worry, I can fill up the rest of the layout with Japanese standard infrastructure.
