    Very nice, Gill ! When I go to train shows, I always look for more of those cars, for loads.
  2. Gil, Saw the pic on the other forum too. I like that. And the nice part is

    that they are not for sale by a company. Good job.

    Evening all!

    Had a busy day tending to the wife after her surgery yesterday. Recovery is slow and she hurts.

    Spanky - your photo from this morning is magnificent! Great composition!

    All the talk about shovels earlier makes me think one is needed here to dig out if you know what I mean. Reminds me of when an old buddy of mine during a big BS session held his arm up high. Took a while before someone asked him what he was doing. He replied he was trying to save his watch as his shoes were already ruined!

    Have a great evening all!

    Roy I wish her the best and I can empathize with her.

    I had some surgery this summer also and I know how difficult recovery is and also how slow.

    Please give her my warmest wishes.

    Off to Regional Transportation meeting most of the day. Have a good one and God bless all.
  8. Good Morning.

    Chief... Have a safe trip.

    Gil.... Really not that bad. One minute on the main highway, next
    minute on the hill, in the wooded corner. Great.

    John, have a good day at work.

    Roy... Good luck and fast recovery for the wife.

    Good Morning All from NE Ohio
    where the temp is 60 deg and heading to 72 with Blue Clear Skys (for now)

    Gil - your log cars came out looking great. I saw on the DYI Model RR show that the guy was using stain that comes in a flet tip pen. I have to look for some of that.

    I stop last night at WallyWorld and was going to pick up some FlexStone paint and they wanted $6.97, our local craft store only wants $5.49 a can. Guess it will wait until the weekend.

    Boys in the Sunshine State better hold onto your hats. Wilma has gotten very mean.

    Pick of the Day

    Nice picture of Tom's layout ! Tom, try & put a picture of your new log cars on when you get a chance, again! I should have stole them before ! ( the pictures ) Got to show Gill, not that his aren't nice ! Roy: sure hope your wife has less pain today. I told my wife not to complain about therapy ! She's not much for excersizing ! Oh, I wonder how that Flexstone paint would look on a factory with flat top roofs ? Now I have to look for it ! Boy, the stuff you learn when you visit other peoples' layouts ! Now, I wonder what's happening on the Hill ! ( Blueberry Hill, that is ) ! I wonder what Gill built today !! Hope The Chief had a good meeting ! ( if he explodes, Willoughby will have 5 feet of the white stuff ! )OK, later, John

    [​IMG]Per your request John, here are some pics.






    This that enought. Most of these are IR cars. I pick up 3 pack for $25.00

    [​IMG] Oh, there they are ! [​IMG] Thanks Tom! Nice big pictures, too ! Gill & Chuck, see what I mean ? These look pretty easy to make frames for, once you get the trucks . Get this though, 1 set of trucks may cost 12 or more dollars, and Tom got 3 cmplete cars for 25 !! Oh, if we only had a bunch of real junk cars, to get the trucks off. Wouldn't even need couplers, just a draw bar, or link !

    I have several Industrail Line short skeliton cars I might kit bash into longer skeleton cars.

    Those look impressive SP.

    I think I will remove the logs from my K Line cars and replace them with apple limbs so they will all match.

    I am not going for a total hi rail look but I wan ta pretty fair and reasonably realalistic looking set up. It needs to compliment my rail road and logging/coal mining collectables so I can dsplay them all together...all in a 10 x 10 room, which I think is gping to be imposible.

    I need to get several Ely-Thomas when I can .

    Come back here often, this and the other forum are good train & BS foruns, LOL Not like the one our annal retentive friend was with :D
