    Glen, you’ll find all the information on how I did the streets in this old post: http://forum.zealot.com/t117064/#post428313.

    Deano, glad you like this picture. I used the depth of field software, I mentioned some weeks ago on the WPF, to create this shot. Beautiful new engine for the Rock Valley Sub – Big Ed must be thrilled...

    Charlie, you had me goin' there for a minute: I thought that picture of the CNJ GP40PH-2 was a GP version of the SDP45, running long hood forward. wall1 I think that I'd better stick to steam locomotives. ;) :-D

    Here's what I've been working on this weekend. The lead unit is a Proto 2000 E7-A and the trailing unit is an E6-B, also Proto 2000. Both were donations and needed some work. On the E6 the pickups in the front truck are whacked. The E7 had a bad lightboard and a broken gear. I repaired the E7 and wired the two units together. Being that both are powered they can pull a really long train, longer than I have space for.

    When the local Critters went down for the count, a friendly neighbor loaned the town of Adobe Flats a couple of locos for a few days until the critters have been repaired. The local folks were rather surprised to see what was switching the local pet food plant.

    Waaay back in April of '07 I bought my first engine since 1978. It was this Bachmann Spectrum:

    Here is the engine is all its glory as I was building my benchwork


    I didn't have any notion of what I wanted to run on my less than finalized layout, but I knew a bargain when I saw it. When I decided upon Northern Pacific, I was thinking of selling this engine and buying a Tower 55 "What If" engine. Then someone on here talked about sending his stuff to another member for painting and what not.

    Long story short-ish... jbaakko did a BEE YEEEW TEE FULL job on my engine. I can't thank him enough for this, and a couple of guys in my club took down his info... so, Josh, man... head's up. You might get s'more work from Idaho!

    Without further delay, here is my NEWLY painted baby...

    And even more...




    I don't know if you can tell or not, but I am pretty excited about my 'new' engine and more than a little proud of it.

    Josh, thank you ever so much.

    Here are some views of CNR 4-8-2 6060 on a charter trip in the mid-'70s, passing through Grimsby, Ontario, en route to Toronto. Note the clean stack - definitely not a photo run-by for railfans, just a loco going about its business.

    There's an F-unit tucked in behind the tender for insurance, and behind that an open-door baggage car, for the guys recording the stack talk. That "Southern" on the letterboard of the coach isn't a reference to southern Ontario, either. ;)

    And bringing up the markers on a fairly long train, what appear to be two ex-N&W cars from the Powhatan Arrow.

    Great Shots everyone!:thumb:

    Today began the restoration of the Riverside Freight Depot, the first model structure my dad and I ever built, dating back to the age of the RRR I like to call "before the table" (when the layout was still on the ground and real modeling like doctorwayne's godly skils meant nothing to me then):eek:. When we were first done with it, having 'weathered' it and all, we thought we were pretty good. Here's a shot of how it looked 'then':
    That is Testor's oil paint on the stones there, and still shiny:eek: Note the faded paint and crappy wood paint, also with the same oil.:cry:

    Now, here's the most recent shot:
    it looks ALOT better, doesn't it? Still needs a good bit of work, but at least it looks better than it has for the past 5 years. I'll post more about the RRR freight depot on my layout's thread:thumb:

    Here's a couple of shots from the roof of my foundry. As you can see there's still some roof damage left over from Rita.
