Do you have any plans for a load on that flatcar?
YES!:thumb:...i am open for suggestions. Steven & Josh, THANKS GUYS!! -Deano
Those cars look great Deano!
Seeing as Holloween is around the corner, why not some pumpkins, corn stalks, scarecrow, or something to that effect, if you can even do that so small

Deano, excellent job on the cars!:thumb: Loved the rust on the first one (just right IMHO)
As far as the engine goes...BEAUTIFUL! can't wait to see more. keep up the great work.
Steven, 300 posts!......wow, but I'm still waiting for one worth reading!sign1
seriously, It was a great day for The Gauge when you joined!:thumb: Your enthusiasm, encouragement, willingness to share knowledge and questions has certainly helped me and, I'm sure, others. Thanks Buddy
Deano, only one word to say.......BEATIFUL!:thumb: :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
Lookin good there Deano!
Steve - I'm waiting for the 500 mile, er post, marker for that
I've tried to make some engine-pics of my Shay #14. What do you think?
Deano, that SD45T-2 sure looks good. :thumb: :thumb: I can't wait until I start gettong more engines so I can detail them all up too, they look so much more real when all those details go on.:thumb:
Waldbahner, those are cool. I like the engineer poping out of the loco and the guy on the back of the tender. Nice touch:thumb: :thumb:
Did I hear someone needed a photo?
here's another one in color. Please not, that this diorama is build in N-scale.
I am sure Deano will be happy to see that #4890 SD45T-2 pic. Great find Tom!!:thumb: :thumb:
great pics and modelling waldbahner:thumb:
Nice scene, Waldbahner, I wouldn't have guessed that it was N scale. That grass to the right is nice, and the trees are very nicely done.:thumb:
Great work, Waldbahner.... great photo's too !!!
These were taken in my home town of Crystal Lake, IL. No, not by me, I found them on railpictures.net
Here's another one for ya Deano! MP15DC. I've probably seen this particular loco many times, and I do recognize the car behind it. This one is from Crystal Lake too, and again, not mine
Here's a really cool shot I found in Wheaton, IL. Again, not mine, but think Deano will love it!
Here's a nice UP business train. I know I've seen one or two of these, but that was well over 10 years ago
