C&O Motor Transfer Car:
We were laying new track, which was replacing the tin plate track, at the museum this week.
Dave's Diner is popular among the locals and train crews. That promise of "Oatmeal on demand" is a private joke on my friend for whom the diner is named. I like adding personal references to structures friends will see.
I made a leaky tank car....
A bit of progress...
Sorry I haven't posted any pictures lately...as you can see...I've been busy. This new shelf layout is far from done (still in the track-testing phase) but here's the idea I'm building on so far. Two towns located at each end of the dogbone curves, yard in the middle dividing the two, with a passenger station for Amtrak and NS excursion service. The extended yard to the west of the main yard is for the engine service area (as well as additional staging parking) that will be full operation when the layout goes DCC in the future.
jeez kyle if them tank cars leaked like that now days and at the prices you bet that car would be in the shop!! very nice touch and great pics to start with every one:thumb:
An early merger shot. A Penn Central F7 followed by a GP20 still in NYC livery crosses a Pennsy bridge over a canal near the Van Pelt Ave. lift bridge.
Great pictures this week. Like that tank car, looks real. Herc Driver, how long is that layout. Should make for some interesting operation. Nothing to post just now, but still looking.
Ralph: Cool shot! Your new camera takes great pics!

Thanks! I'm very happy with the new camera. I needed to learn from trial and error to turn off the flash to get better pictures of the layout. Its nice to finally see a photo that looks like the layout as I see it.
Here's an update on that fuel barge for my riverside oil company. I've added hand railing made of thin wire stock and thread, and an American flag at the stearn. I still want to add a hose leading from that outlet by the bow of the barge to the barge itself.
If it wasn't in the shop there'd be people runnin'' alongside with buckets to catch the drippings. sign1 Enjoying all of the pictures. :thumb: :thumb:
Great pics everyone.
Ralph, that new camera sure takes some nice pics, not that the old one was bad.
Yesterday, went and stimulated the economy of my favorite LHS. Got some cork(a whole box actually), Code 83 Flex Track and some turnouts.
Worked all afternoon and well into the night laying cork and flex track(No AC in the attic.....Man was it HOT!)
Finished the yard. Now I have a place to put all my rolling stock....instead of the mainline.
The track next to the deep wells is the mainline, to the left of that are two storage tracks, and the one farthest to the left is a stub end.
Taking out the partition was the best move I ever made. Why didn't I do that seven years ago?
ATSF 3751 come to San Diego today.
Nice job on the steamer!
Cool motor transport!
Nice shot on the bridge!
Great shot of the steamer!
