Neah, just plain grasshoppers (they don't have those prying parts).

I wanted a stand alone case for my Texas Special so I ordered these old style cases from a Kato dealer in Japan (brand new stock - lots of different foam configurations to choose from). After cutting the foam a little bit to fit my cars, they work very well. 2 cases fit the entire 14 car train plus 2 E units. It's probably kind of silly, but sometimes it's the little things that make me smile :)

My ballast crew is making its way up the hill from Caliente and have now reached Allard siding.  Here they've set down their primitive and oversize tools for a brief lunch break:

Gary,
Looks great! Looks like a hand laid turnout? Also, wondering what the separation is between upper and lower levels (or height above the floor)?
Thanks in advance!!

For those who have felt a disturbance in The Force:
Tomorrow is the first Cumberland Division NMRA meeting of the new year.  Part of the format is a show and tell.   Wanting to prove I did / can do modeling I pulled out the Bluebird Cafe which I scratch built about 15 years ago.  I had to add the chimney and front stoop.
Now I have to figure out a new project for February....peer pressure is a wonderful thing.

First successful attempt at creating decals.  This was an easy one due to the white background.  Printed on a Epson ink jet photo printer.  This Showcase Miniatures milk truck has been on my layout for years without the Borden's logos.

Thanks to Trainworx, I was finally able to put the cherry on top of this scene -





I thought that the humps on the front of these trailers made them reefers, so that's what I went with. However, I've since been told that said humps are just there to make the trailers more aerodynamic. Oh well, learn something new every day....

Welcome to the club. I do NH pre-McGinnis loco schemes.

The DL109 needs the stripes chopped up to fit between handrails and vents. Plus the stripe where the roof meets wall and soooooo easy to wear off by handling the loco. And hey, how about the orange and green PA scheme with lotsa lotsa tiny silver stripes down the sides? Each. Placed. Separately.
I have one more of each to paint and decal. Someday.
And I thought my Pennsy passenger cars were a pain in the stripe.
