Gondolas are loaded with scrap metal from shredded automobiles.
The loaded cars are pulled out of Sal's Salvage and across the bridge spanning the canal.....
Great pics, Ralph!
...and set out at the materials yard at Kings Port Steel. Later, during another operating session, they will be returned as empties to the salvage yard.
Great shots Ralph, you must be tired out now :thumb:
How did you sqwish the cars??
Looking gooooood Ralph!!!! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Now that I have my trackwork finished I can finally get into some operations too!
Great photos of a very nice layout Ralph!
Raplh. Is the dim/focused on one area light effect intentional? because it really adds to the drearyness of the whole urban penn central setting.
I'd love to say I created this intentionally but its the result of an inexpensive camera and ordinary ceiling lighting.
hey dude great pics man. but i have to ask can we get a track plan from you? hope this doesn't sound stupid but how do you get the scraps in the cars? thanks for sharing the pics
Love those shots of heavy industries like the one showing set outs at the materials yard at Kings Port Steel. Nice work.
Ha Ralph, Speaking of Sal's salvage- I haven't received last months check.
I set up cars as loaded or empty prior to starting an operating session so the gons at Sal's will be already loaded for pick up. I photographed them empty above just for effect. I make scrap loads out of aluminum foil that I spray paint browns and reds and then shred into small pieces. I then glue the pieces to a piece of thin balsa wood cut to fit in the gondola. I just pop it in or turn the car over and remove the load as appropriate.
Oh, I'll post a track plan of the layout and a detailed one of the switching area pictured above soon...
Sal!!!! Sorry man! The check is in the mail...yeah..that's the ticket!
Nice pics, Ralph
Great Photo's Great Modeling Ralph :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Well, in lieu of a track plan (which I'll try to post some time) here are a couple more pics of local action. First an SD9, still with a Pennsey logo, hauls away two tank cars from Vandelay Industries.
Once those tankers are out of the way the crew can go back and pull out a string of empty hoppers from Kings Port Steel's materials yard. Meanwhile a passenger train zips by on the main. I need a name for this train.....something NY/PA area...any ideas?
Nice Ralph :thumb:
I like the SD90
Ralph, how about The Bullet?
Or, the Flyer, the Empire State one way and the Keystone the other? The Pennsylvanian, the Broadway, the Businessman's Special.
How about "The harrisburg clipper: We promise nothing with break down this time, maybe"
