It’s Friday, time to start a new WPF thread. So here we go...
Here's one of a Lackawanna geep
This is part of our HO layout at the museum, and I can not take credit for this fine work. It was done by one of our other master modelers.
Awaiting permission to enter the sidings
A recently aquired and refurbished B23-7 on a grey and overcast day. This unit got a fresh coat of black over its old Southern tuxedo black and now finds its home pulling cars from the sidings and taking care of some local movements allowing the larger equipment to handle the longer trips.
What a great start to this week's thread! Great looking model railroad scenes (Spankybird, that quarry is cool!), and a proto photo by Charlie that makes me wish I had used my camera as a young teen!!! Why didn't I do that as I was watching those black PC units go by!?! Oh well, at least I can provide a photo of model Penn Central power waiting for their turn to roll.
:thumb:Kurt, give us the low down on that ATSF OB boxcar. Is it scratch built, modified kit, or what? Sure looks good!
Great pictures, folks - off to a great start for the end-of-the-year WPF.
Here are a few more pictures from the mid-'70s. The action starts at the TH&B's Kinnear Yard in east Hamilton, Ontario, where TH&B SW9 is coupling onto Penn Central loco 8045 and an unidentified companion.
The train makes its way up the Niagara Escarpment:
And the 55 is cut-off at the passing siding in Vinemount. She'll return light to Hamilton, while the train continues on to Buffalo, NY.
I have to agree with Wayne, truly a FANTASTIC start to the last WPF thread of the year!:thumb::mrgreen:
Dick, the boxcar is scratch built: http://forum.zealot.com/t111634/
slekjr, I built that bridge from a Campbell kit intended for railroad use. Built it as intended (except for skewing it) except I planked over the top surface.
So, where is (was) the Y&O, and how did it get it's name?
by the way, the new bridge cost 7mill and the 9 homes on the road didn't even want the bridge replaced, just wanted a dead end from the other direction.
I went downstairs to take a pic of the bridge from an angle which shows it better, I never thoiught to make it the focal point of a photo.
you find a link to information on my boxcar in my last post (#11 of this thread) and this link leads to information on my packing house: http://forum.zealot.com/t154403/
The blue building on the right is my Burbank beer distributor: http://forum.zealot.com/t151479/
Deano, can’t remember having seen this RSD-15 on your layout – I love the long "nose".
Gary, that bridge is gorgeous, really worth taking a picture of.
Wayne, Charlie, keep on posting these old photos, they are great :thumb:
Deano, the RSD-15 looks like its painted for LS&I. I like it.:thumb:
greetings everyone---great start to the final thread of 2007---Charlie,Doctor Wayne---those old photos are excellent,keep them coming :thumb:---as a follow up to Wayne's photos,here's my contribution for the week---All the best to everyone for the new year aussie
This is one of my all time favs from the Missabe Railroad Historical Societys website.
A little caboose
Here is one from 1980 somewhere in the Chicago area,
I saw something like that here in Saint Paul over the summer on the end of a BNSF train. I still want to model something like that. This one was more like a flatcar with a shortened shipping container with doors and windows on it.
Gotcha there, Charlie. :-D The car is a 1971 Datsun 1200: probably the best car I've ever owned. I drove the daylights out of it for 17 years, and put over 300,000 miles on it. Easy to work on, got over 40 mpg, and was quicker off the line than a lot of wannabe econo-racers. It got a major
body job in 1981, when I was on strike for 3 months, and was still running strongly when I had to scrap it in '88 when the front suspension towers rotted out.
