Climax whizzing by at 2 MPH
I have been enjoying the speeding trains at the stations and crossings so here is mine. The old Climax is hitting 2 MPH past Christine Station on the way to logging camp#1.
That's hilarious Doctor G.!
Here's a descent shot I got this morning. Ex-Amtrak 505 running parallel to 3rd street.
Here's a LHS selling Athearn trains.
Nice pictures everyone! I've gotten some stuff done, but no pics. Ground cover down on my fall diorama, and laid track for a matience terminal.
I was looking at some of the signs on the buildings on my backdrop today and came across this old classic.
Hello ---great shots everyone but I really like the action shots the most---here's a couple of CNR diesels speeding towards Lowbanks on Doc Wayne's EG&E
Little project im working on
I have a few Lonestar models 40' Trailmobel Flatbed Trailers that are still unbuilt
1 White, 1 Construction Yellow, and 2 JB Hunt. All of them have now been built and look great. But this white one i decided to rough it up and make it well used and in need of desperate repair to the wood deck.
While working at Lowes in the lumber/building materials department, we would receive trucks from Quickcrete and Sir Mix (for our concrete products) and trucks from the RDC (our main warehouse). The RDC hired SWIFT Transportation to haul our loads out to us, which contained various materials for our department, the whole 48' truck would be our stuff, mostly bunks of lumber, roofing materials, and decking.
There were some big differences in the companies equipment they used to haul the loads out to us. The worst was Sir Mix. They used OLDER equipment like the old Mack COE's and older 28' flatbed and 45' trailers. Ocationally, we would get a Sir Mix truck with a semi new 48' trailer but it was rare lol. There trailers were always VERY beat up from many years of work, and the floor boards were always tore up and missing in allot of spots and they didn't look like they were maintained at all except for the wheels which were always shinny lol. Quickcrete always had nice trucks and equipment. it was rare to get a truck that had older equipment, and if it was an older trailer, it had been re-furbished and you could not tell. No floor boards that i saw were ever missing or coming up on the Quickcrete Trucks. Most of them were also 48' spread axle Aluminum Decks. The RDC trucks (SWIFT) were most of the time fairly maintained. A few floor boards missing here and there on some of the trailer i saw, but not nearly as bad as the Sir Mix Trucks and Trailers.
I worked there for almost a year, and receiving 3-5 trucks flatbed trucks a week, i saw a lot of flatbed, (mostly 28's and 48's) some of them in very good condition and some of them in very bad condition. The Sir Mix trucks have inspired me to "beat up" one of my flatbed trailers with the wood decks. Here is my progress so far. Ive weathered with washes so far, next will come the chalks:
Here are the rest of the trailers and the lumber truck i have built that i had laying around from Lonestar Models. they all need to be weathered and decaled still...
