WOW...!!! That boxcar just went through a time warp...!!!
Very nicely done. Did you use the technique you described earlier??
THANKS GUS!!! i done a little of everything i know EXCEPT chalk on this one:thumb: . 1st, i faded out the lettering, 2nd, i airbrushed a fine gray mist over the whole car, 3rd, i dry brushed rust streaks in a few spots, 4th, i "washed" the car with engine black/rubbing alcohol mixture twice, then dull coted it:thumb: . THANK YOU for asking Gus -Deano
Looks good Dean!
THANK YOU Russ!!! most of my cars are not in quite this bad a shape, so i decided i needed one a little more "well used" . THANKS! -Deano
That boxcar looks great Deano! Ever think of selling your weathered cars on ebay? They fetch good bucks there!
WOW!!! THANK YOU!, for the GREAT complement Steven . naw, not good enough to sell my stuff online, and i think it would be more of a hassle then it would be worth . THANKS! though . -Deano
jawdrop Deano...........I'm speechless......ok no I'm not..That looks great!:thumb: :thumb:
That boxcar really does look great.:thumb: :thumb:

If you're interested in more information about that nice scenic railroad, here is a link to the english language advertising flyer:
Hey Deano, as usual, outstanding performance! It's more like art than model railroadingsign1.
Nice one Deano.:thumb: I hope my layout and freight cars will look half as good as your when I can continue with it.
Thanks for the link, caliban, and for posting the additional photos.
I think those little locos are great. Iv'e just sadly demolished :cry: my L shape, Deutche Riechbahn , TT gauge layout made to fit in a mobile home. I'm re-using the boards for an HO set up for the NMRA(BR) group i'm in. I'd love to ride one of those little beauties.
It was a great trip, even better it was a roundtrip. On the way back we got seats on the open coach and the weather was perfect!!!!
I posted more photos here:
Nice looking layout, Dennis. Got any more pictures of it?
Josh, Steve,Tobias, and Dennis, THANK YOU!!, for the GREAT complements . Tobias, those are some GREAT shots & info on that neat little engine:thumb: , thanks for the link!:thumb: . Dennis, WOW!! AWESOME pic of your layout!!!:thumb: :thumb: i AM IMPRESSED!:thumb: :thumb: . THANKS GUYS!! -Deano
Saturday, work on Dads Layout...
well folks, its Saturday once again . today dad and i headed to the LHS for some supplies:thumb: . couple down sides to going to the LHS, takes 25 min one way, and we can NEVER get out of there in less then 2 hours. so it ends up blowing 3 hours out of the day . dad bought an old pop machine for the station, and a NICE old semi for the town:thumb: . for dads layout i bought some ballast, some people for the town, and some striping tape to stripe the roads in the town:thumb: . FOR ME, i got a bottle of Solvaset, a Accurail "solid gold" boxcar, a set of trucks for a boxcar i have, and 2 sets of N scale decals to use as warning stickers on a couple engines i am in the process of detailing:thumb: . announce1 ALL i got done on Dads layout today was striped the roads in the town , we spent about 2 hours looking in about 500 of dads boxes for one of two statues he has that would be perfect to put in the park on the edge of town...we never found them , probably in one of the boxes out in the garage . still have TONS left to do in the town, but here are a couple pics of how it looked at the end of the day:thumb: . THANKS! -Deano

A Little Help Please..
HEY folks, i am looking for some pics of the "solid gold" cars, ANYONE know where i can find ANY? i just picked up one, want to weather it, but not sure what kind of shape they are in these days, havent seen one in my neck of the woods in a while. THANKS! -Deano
Here's a great pic of an FGE solid gold car!
The scary thing is that I immediately knew the reporting marks (FGEX) for a car I've never seen in real life! Gee...I don't spend too much time looking at train pictures...
On another note I have to say this: YOUR DAD"S LAYOUT IS A_W_E_S_O_M_E!!! :thumb: I love all the little details, and the fact that it's in my era! I can't get enough of that layout! How about a more detailed tour of that layout in the near future, please?
How did you make the roads?
Who makes the stoplights?
in the top picture, on the right, what color did you use for the trim on the building (The corner cafe) ??
And finally, how do you paint the buildings so sharply?
