It looks like Barney Secord has been at it again! :-D
I finished remotoring and updating the drive of my Athearn SDP40F A unit and repowered the B unit with a Proto 2000 E unit chassis. Both run as quiet as any Atlas or Kato unit I've seen. I've yet to patch them for the L&A. I installed Digitrax DZ125 decoders in both units and acceleration/decelaretion rates have been set.
I'm taking the day off so I can join in early. A PC freight pops out of the tunnel through what will in all likelihood be an expansion of Gern Industries into the Hudson Valley.
Been a while since ive posted in ho scale. Any way here looks like the Gern ind. is a little busy in the late afternoon.
Has Barny been moonlighting? Looks like he made it all the way down to Southern Indiana!
and then on the way back, a fly-by over Rock Valley, Southern WI:winki: ....
Ah the skies must be clear and all's right with the world...Barney's flying again!
He also buzzed some cows at Green Acres farm
Wayne - Great Picture! Barney is doing some nice flyby's.:thumb:
Jeffrey - Looks good. Glad they are running well!
Ralph - Scene looks great, love the engines.:thumb:
railroader9731 - Nice scene! Make sure they check that boxcar is locked down before they go pick up that fallen palet.:thumb:
chessie4155 - Awesome! Barney seems to be making his way around.
Deano - Love that scene! i am glad that Barney flew in nice and low to take it.:thumb:
Ed - Nice farm! Hope your cows are ok!
After gaining altitude flying over Green Acre's Farm, a huge wind came up and blew Barney Secord thousands of miles off course and he found himself flying over a baseball game in Southern Utah!
...and keeping on his wild winged odissey, he's about to buzz the engine house in Portales (N.M.)....or worse, perhaps....flying under that bridge...??
Very nice posts every one, love the Barny flying gig:mrgreen:
My son and I spent the morning tuning up the Christmas layout for under the tree, and then we got silly with a coal train.
I scratchbuilt both barns, because Better-Half wanted a farm scene. After I finished the red barn she said the farm needed a name. So I made a sign (Green Acres Farm) and put it on the red barn, When she saw it, I thought she was going to flip!("Hey...You said you wanted a name!")
The long white one is the cow barn, the red is a horse barn, both have interiors, lighted and filled with cows and horses.
those are some great rio grande pictures! thats the first time i ever saw any pictures of any rio-grande stuff.
Barney also flew over the mainline on my new diorama:
As he continued, he got a good look at the trees that have already been planted:
His chase team got this great shot of the fall colors along the road:
And of course, the trees are all planted, but I haven't gotten pics yet. And yes, the ground is still wet from all the whiteglue/water I dumped on it last night.
Good-lookin' barns, Ed. :-D My cows are wandering around without a home, although I plan to eventually build a barn or two somewhere:
The horses are somewhat under control:
...although, without reins, the one in the foreground moved while having her picture taken:
...and some are still on the loose, including, at left, the farmer's favourite, "Hoof-Hearted" :-D:-D
Around here, that would be the cops. :-D:-D
Nice looking trees, by the way. :thumb::thumb:
Nice pics, guys:thumb:
The Ocean City and Cape Charles Scenic Railway #7 suns itself on a morning break...
