Nice shots everyone you guy have some real nice looking equipment And layouts.
Mark:wav: , this ones for YOU!:winki: Gremlin, Pinto wagon, and Maverick waiting at the crossing:mrgreen: .
Being a Ford man, i hate to admit it, but at one time i had a Vega wagon...:eeki: :119: .
tomkat13, GREAT SHOTS!:thumb: if i remember right, you mentioned the pics you have been posting are from a previous layout, do you have any current pics? :smilie:
Man I haven't been here in awhile! Great pics guy's! I took these pics of my E7 a couple months ago when my Camera was unbroke! It's alot different now, got cork under the track, and a few scenaric stuff around there. I'm currently working on my west Abercorn St. of Savannah and a cut were this track is. I'll eventually post more when my Camera's fixed.
Sean:wav: , NICE E7A&B!!!:thumb::thumb::thumb: Get that camera fixed so we can see some more:winki: .
Will do Deano!:thumb: I'm gonna have to find another alternative to get them pics up Real Quick! If I don't get it workin soon.
Deano: Very nice scene...Thanks! heres one back at ya...Since you like Fords heres a couple of stangs!
sweet pics everyone smoke how hard was it to paint that sd70mac in the southern paint zachary
It wasn't hard at all. I really enjoyed painting that model, although when I bought it I didn't notice the ledge on the side that I had to paint. I want to do anther one and also want to do a SD80MAC.
Mark:wav: , WOW!!!:eeki: that orange Mustang is SLAP AWESOME!!!:thumb: who makes it? I GOTTA HAVE ONE OF THOSE!:winki: :mrgreen: . I have a Mustang, this one is made by Bush, very good quality, but not one of my favorite Mustang body styles:119: . i have been looking high and low for a Mach1...no luck though:frowns: . THANKS MARK!:mrgreen:
Deano: Herpa makes that mustang. Here's a link.

I have one of those stangs from Busch also..
Many years ago I had a 73 Mach l . I really don't think anyone makes Machs right now in HO scale or have ever but if they ever do, I for sure will have to have one or two.
Deano: Here's a few more Fords for you.:thumb: 1965 stang, 1981 Escort, and a 1975 F100 Econo Hippie van
How makes the 1965 mustang? I have a larger one in my driveway, but cannot fit THAT on my layout..
Miles: Busch makes them , they are listed as 1964s.

Also Model Power makes them

and I just found out Fresh Cherries will offer a 1971 Sports Roof, gonna have to reserve one of those!!
I have been asked about my photos from my old layout....they were taken on a small part of the layout that I kept & use for test track. Some of the old buildings will show up on the new layout but others were sold off or gifted to new guys getting into model railroading. The plan below was the last one I drew out but I have already found some changes that I want to make. This fall is the projected start date on these two doors.....I like to add scenery as I go because that is my favorite part. I will post photos as I get some track down.
My new layout, #4, a bridge-line that takes place in Eastern Missouri, will connect the CB&Q near hiway 79, then west to Hawk Point then south along hiway 47 across the Wabash RR near Warrenton thru Missouri Wine Country to connect with MKT near hiway 94. Since this is "my" railroad most places will have the "flavor" of this area but maynot be perfect to the prototype. Time will be pre Burlington Northern (1970).
I'm now working out the final track plan and will dry-run on paper before any track goes down!
The things that will be different on this layout:
#1 This will be a point to point RR built on Hollow-core doors along two walls, so it will be in sections.
#2 It's going to be less track, no yard, no switch machines, open staging, & simple engine service area.
#3 Just a few small towns with one or two sidings.
#4 More open scenery between towns.
#5 Interchange with RR on each end.
#6 Keep everything simple so I can spend more time running then repairing!
I'm always open to comments and/or suggestions as I'm looking to learn anything that I can that could help make this hobby more fun!.....tkat
Mark, THANK YOU VERY MUCH!!!, for the link to the orange Mustang....i just ordered one:thumb: . i too have the red econoline, and a black one:mrgreen: , if i get time perhaps i will post them tonight:winki: . about 75% of the autos on my layout are Fords:thumb: , i am not going to post em all tonight:119: , but it will make you look at my future pics a little closer:winki::smilie: . THANKS again Mark!:smilie:
tomkat, i REALLY LIKE how you are going to set up your NEW layout:thumb: . the ONLY thing i suggest is a run around track:winki: , i think if you added one you would find operations MUCH more enjoyable, and i think it would add longevity to your running on the layout without getting bored:winki:.....just MY thoughts:smilie: . in any case, i cant wait to see you make it come to life:thumb: .
KEEP THOSE PICS COMING FOLKS! :deano: -Deano
Deano: no Problemo, Your Welcome.
