More for my work train, first is the smitty with his dog Spot aboard.
Second is the tool car, the LPB's call it their break room. Comparing it to sitting on the porch of a cabin with a cool breeze blowing off the lake.
Third is the last three cars I kitbashed to make a seven car work train so far.

Jim that is truly excellent work. Weathering is the real thing!! :thumb: Are they totally scratchbuilt or are they kits? Made by who?
Those are FANTASTIC Jim!:thumb: :thumb:
I just got on here this morning, opened up your post, & I have my inspiration for the day!
I can always count on you for that, my friend!
Thanks guys. These are all from el-cheapo rtr models. I did the bashing to make them up. Cattle car cut and wood floored (tool car) Blacksmith car used the wheel set from a bobber caboose and scrach built the floor and body, The basis of the transfer caboose was the cab of a bobber caboose and a box car floor. Yes the others have been posted, an old time flat car with load, an old time tank car kitbashed, crane and flat car and a scratch built box cab for power. I hope ole Spot shows a little better in this photo.
green with envy...very nice MOW...working on that in N scale...coming soon.......:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:

Making two GREAT cars out of one bobber!
That "smithy" car is a masterpiece!!
My hat is off to you, sir!
Excellent Jim.:thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Thanks for the close up Jim. Can sure see spot now.
It's a Gem, Jim!
Truly impressive work, Jim. I'd love to see the whole train! :thumb:
Nice work Jim,
Beautiful! :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
I love the close up too!
What a terrific job you made of those Jim, the detail and style makes me think of a time in history when the world seemed a better place.
Your skill with a paintbrush is top notch sir!!!
If it weren't for a need to make dozens of trees I'd get stuck into logging themes myself.
I'm still drooling over visualising your cars on a layout with everything appropriate to the period. WELL DONE Jim!:thumb: :thumb:
