Gotta share my new RS-3! It's a Railking model released last year, I think. Sounds as good as it looks. This is my favorite scheme, and not one that's modeled as often as those with the orange hoods. Also less common on the prototype, it seems? I'm guessing Melgar could tell us more...

I've got the same one. Love it.

I recently found these two pictures on a Penn Central group which shows a similarly dressed engine. These pics are reportedly from the Cedar Hill Yard in 1971.

Just got a copy of "NH Color Guide to Freight and Passenger Equipment" by David Sweetland and Stephen Horsley. Apparently this box car #45097 was a State of Maine car that had been repainted in 1968. Do you think if I scratch the model I'll find State of Maine underneath?

Love those RDC’s

And I can’t be sure, but that looks like a Bradley Pullman in the second shot. I just picked up a set of the green Atlas cars.

New Haven RDC 21 is a Sunset/3rd Rail model. New Haven 6843 is an Atlas O Trainman model of a 60-foot car. The second car in Brian's post is an Osgood-Bradley lightweight (American Flyer) car.

Thanks, as always, for the great info MELGAR. Although I like the more colorful scheme I the picture, I think the green/black livery on the Atlas models will look great behind my 3rd Rail green PA.

This pic popped up on my Facebook feed today... while it primarily concerns the observation car (which apparently serves as a bar in Ohio), it was part of a train including some of the Osgood-Bradley Pullmans. The post had the following info...

Here's New Haven Observation Car "Watch Hill", (stainless steel and red) doing time as a parlor car for Penn Central RR at Mamaroneck, New York. Ca. 1972. Photo by George Hamlin. This car (NH 425) reportedly still exists, somewhere near Cleveland, Ohio. This is now Metro-North's New Haven Line.

The boat-tailed observation car on my layout is the Bunker Hill, an older MTH Premier model which is nice but not very accurate. The New Haven's "Hill-series" cars included the Bunker Hill and the Watch Hill. These stainless steel cars were built for the New Haven by Pullman-Standard in 1949 and ran between New York and Boston on The Merchants Limited.

New Haven ALCO DL-109 #0719 went into service in 1941. During WW2 these engines pulled passenger trains during the day and freight trains at night. Model made by MTH with PS-2 probably 15 years ago.

I was first attracted to the New Haven by the colorful McGinnis paint scheme, but this green and yellow is fast growing on me. Also like that ALCO.

I'm just the opposite--this is the scheme that got me hooked, and now I'm slowly reaching an accommodation with the McGinnis scheme...

The first ALCO PA-1s on the New Haven were designated DER-3a (diesel-electric road) and went into service in 1948. The initial livery was orange and green with narrow silver stripes. It was quickly replaced by a return to the traditional green and gold scheme and then the McGinnis scheme in 1955. These engines had 2,000 horsepower.

The New Haven never had this paint scheme on an F-3 diesel, nor did it ever have any F-3 diesels. The paint scheme and "New Haven" model were a concoction by (I believe) Lionel. The only F-series diesels the New Haven ever had were the dual-mode FL-9s which could run as a diesel-electric or as a straight electric from the 600-volt DC third-rail power between Woodlawn, NY (New York Central milepost 12) and Grand Central Terminal. They had a two-axle lead truck and a three-axle trailing truck (see below). Sunset/3rd Rail produced this model a few years ago.

The new Atlas O Osgood Bradley coaches needed a little interior renovation. I went for a blue interior and rearranged some seating, in addition to a adding few figures. These cars aren't too difficult to remove the shells from if you don't mind taking about 20 screws out, and popping out the vestibules. There is a plug between the shell and the body/interior so its very easy to separate the two components to add passengers. I know there are a lot of things that aren't prototypical in the pictures below, but its all in the fun of the hobby!

Finally got home and had a chance to try out my new Atlas O Osgood Bradley coaches. They look pretty smart behind a 3rd Rail New Haven PA. Now I just need for MELGAR to chime in with a historically appropriate name for my consist!!!

I do have two questions... first, does anyone know if it is possible to tone down the intensity of the 3rd Rail headlight (I am using TMCC/Legacy)??? Second, one of the coaches out of the box causes a short. I have been dealing with some family health care issues for the last few months, so I haven’t been as attentive to forum topics as I should be, but I vaguely remember someone else having a similar issue - if anyone has any suggestions on correcting this problem, they would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks.

No doubt, this was the "inspiration."  It's one of two Fairbanks Morse P12-42's the NH powered their Talgo Train with:

FM P-12-42 New Haven 3100

Athearn didn't get it right in HO, either.  Close, but no cigar:

biscuitag97,

Nice job on the New Haven Osgood-Bradley coaches. I have a set of the original ones which were made by Weaver. But - please - no more New Haven passenger cars behind New York Central locomotives... I doubt that it ever happened...

I hope the healthcare issues are resolved. How about the Merchants Limited - or maybe The Knickerbocker - or maybe The Owl... Nice layout, too!

Thanks MELGAR... the health issues were my having a knee replacement in early May and my brother having one in late August - everything is coming along fine.

Looks like I’ll go with the Merchants Limited... from what I could find online, the Merchants was an all parlor car train which sort of matches the Bradley cars I have (couldn’t find anything on the Knickerbocker and the Owl appears to have been an overnight with sleepers). But in doing a little research on the trains you mentioned, I found one other called the Hell Gate Express which went over the said bridge. As I have a modern era Lionel version which I want to find a place for on the layout, the name interests me - do you know anything about that train???

Thanks.

MELGAR -- Did the NH ever run any of their O-B Grill cars on the "Merchant's Ltd.? I don't believe either Weaver nor Atlas have done one, but i did from a photo.

I have been looking forward to this list.  Is it intended to be comprehensive?

If yes, I'm wondering where the "Roger Williams*" and the "Narragansett Special**" might be.

Thanks for your list, regardless.  I haven't been on here in a while but these are all great posts.

** The "Narragansett Special ran from GCT to Narragansett Park to bring riders/bettors to see a horse race of the same name.

 P.S. The forum software keeps altering my link.  if this make sense to you, please change the "[" in the URL to be "(" and the link will work.  For some reason Hoopla is not saving it as I'm entering it "en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Roger_Williams_(train)"
