Still a line of old CNJ/PRR ones through my town. Still technically in service carrying modern signal cable for the Crossing gates tacked to the side. Only a matter of time before those get buried though.

New Train room?

Or new hobby altogether?

On recent rides on the Canadian Ive noticed long stretches where the poles and wires appeared to be intact - until they are interrupted by a fallen tree or similar obstruction. The lines are also swallowed up with vegetation which makes me assume the railways don’t keep their ROW’s as clear as they used to. And the fact that so much wire is still in place indicates that the wire is not copper.

Finished up the pilot models using the new WVD 52" Q-Fan etchings! (Now available for sale!) You might be wondering why these have 12 blades as shown on the fret? They are meant to be folded off to your liking, more detail about the etchings over in product discussion: https://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=52575.0

Great looking fan etchings Alvin.

After modifying the air outlet gates on the AC&Y caboose master I was able to cast three more shells, each with no voids to fill.  Yeah!
Another casting project in the works is a uT 50' single door box car modified to better represent the AC&Y 3500 - 3699 series box cars.  Sample of both shells along with all the mold making and casting accoutrements in the photo.

Three MOW projects have reached the point where they are ready for paint.  I have been striving to get them all to this point so that they could be painted together at the same time, as they will all receive BCR MOW Yellow.

BCOL 6502 is the crane idler for the Prince George Auxiliary, which was converted from a former CP Minibox.  The model incorporates one third of a Briggs Moodels Minibox body and roof; the rest is scratchbuilt in styrene.  The model was primed in grey and glossed for application of the Archer rivet decals on the new low sides.






BCOL 6505 is the tie and truck car for the Prince George Auxiliary, which was converted from a wrecked Southern outside-braced boxcar.  The model is an Intermountain composite gondola (which had the correct ends) with bracing altered to match a boxcar, styrene sides, and 3D printed racks for the rails carried on the sides.  Recent work has involved assembling the materials for the load, including five 39' lengths of rail for each side, shorter lengths to go inside, two bundles of new ties (built around 1/4 oz lead weights), used ties, and some trucks and wheels.






BCOL 996016 is one of several flangers converted from former CP 36' wood boxcars by the PGE.  The model is scratchbuilt in styrene with 3D printed roof, running boards and cupola.  During the last two weeks I installed the cupola handrail, window wipers, running boards and end supports for them, corner roof grab irons, smoke jacks and stays, air hoses, cut levers and the plows underneath.










Thanks for looking,

Tim

After a week of loading, driving and unloading the truck . We are moved to Maryland. Tomorrow I will measure my available layout space in the basement . Preliminary guess is none of my old layout will be used. Tommorow I will post more about the New possible options.
