After seeing the un-weathered car pass by in the Extra east video I got to work and weathered some more cars. Here are before and after pictures of one of them.
The cars sure look better now. I just dusted them with chalks.
Extra East passing the carbarn.
Sing it to the tune of "It's starting to look a lot like Christmas". It has been a while since my last update so I thought a quick update was in order. Some progress has been made on lower staging but nothing blog worthy. Too many other things like work, home and family going on to focus much on track work.
Owner Lee Hehl is the creator of the marvel of model railroad operations. This great layout is one to follow for building a layout for operations. Peco switches and code 100 track, none of it is soldered together, and little is ballasted. Their are only powered switches in staging and everything is in easy reach. Enjoy. Open post for Pt 2
Part 2 follows
Extra east passing Oakwood.
Looks like I need weather a couple of these cars.
This another of the Great Layout in the Northwest AR area. John R Farrell's PRR & RRR railroads are great examples of excellence in model railroading. This model rr is part of Hograils Group.
The Grande Pacific Model Railroad has added a FaceBook page for all to enjoy. All post here and much more will appear on page.
Open to all come join.
Here is a pic my first home road cars. P2k Gondolas modified to look more like Canadian prototypes built by National Steel Car. I Still need to weather them, but I am happy with this first effort. More info on my newly created Blog.
Here is a short clip of a train arriving Colwell.
