    We are finally getting a little more snow then we have had all year.
    This isn't the worst snow this old girl has seen.

    Here's a follow up to Jeffrey's loco shed pic. It looks pretty quiet this afternoon at the engine house in Kings Port...

    [​IMG]Here are 3 "trackside" pictures. I don't take pictures with trains headed towards me.....I believe in safety! ;)
    Please forgive the lack of depth of field. The lighting was marginal and a flash would have "washed" everything out.

    My accomplishment for this weekend was putting together an automatic system to turn my layout lights on when the room lights are y=turned off. The centerpiece of the system is a dusk to dawn spotlight fixture that I got from Wal-Mart for $8. Here's a short video showing it in action.

    As usual, everyone posted great pics.
    Nice work.
    I was particularly impressed with EngineerKyle's stockcar and Free-mo Tim's pics taken from under the viaduct.
    Here is my contribution, an N scale weathered CPR 40' boxcar.
    I had to mix my own grimy black because when I opened my Polly Scale grimy black jar, I realized it left some "sediment" in the bottom of my airbrush cup. So I dumped the whole jar and tried to mix my own.
    The rust drybrushing on the trucks is another own mix.

    Great pics everyone. I always enjoy these weekly installments. :thumb: :thumb:

    Jeffrey, very nice effect. Have you considered putting a dimmer on your room lights so the change from day to night wouldn't be so abrupt?
  18. jeffrey-wimberl

    jeffrey-wimberl Active Member

    Tried that and failed. The room lights are fluorescent and don't do well (an understatement) with dimmers.

    The daily run to Adobe Flat leaves town as the local crew finishes some switching.
