IMG_0023This one has been sitting near the former PRR station in Lewistown, PA for about as long as I can remember.  If you look closely; you can still make out the PRR keystone.

Recently sold a MTH Premier version of that car.  Regret it now!

Here is the Atlas O version of the car.  Someday I'll get around to weathering it.

Here are a couple more Atlas cars.

A SMR Trains box car kit, my first such and fun to build.  This is the learning curve for my next car, SIRT 7, one of at least two cars left over from construction of the Staten Island Rail Road in 1860, and retained for baggage and mail:

I do not recall posting this before, sorry if had done so.  This is the only piece of rolling stock surviving from childhood trains of 40's and 50's.

Being all metal helped!

Beer Train

Just got this one off daBay. Old Athearn, maybe All-Nation, 50ft kit. Previous owner had put some nice Lionel die-cast trucks on it (too far outboard - 3-minute re-drill and move mod) and it has a good paint job and lettering.

I've said it before, I like these old metal kits because they look...metal, like the real thing. Thin cross-section material. Not as hyper-detailed as the new stuff (which is beautiful), but I don't care.

Often inexpensive, too - especially if already in the 3RO configuration, as this one was. And, if assembled correctly, pretty robust.

Essentially all the underbody detail that I typically need.

Unless you've had a wreck...

In a moving train most of that minute detail is lost to the eye. Nice car.

So many choices, so many sizes.  Yes!!!

On of my favorite railroads, saw a lot of the SOUTHERN PACIFIC growing up out West in the 50's and early 60's.20170820_054435

One of my favorite projects back several years ago. Painting and lettering a Kadee HO Great Northern 40 ft box car. The paint had to be custom mixed as there was no match for the GN green. I must have done a dozen or so mixtures to get it as close as possible.

Santa Fe MOW car from double door boxcar

Santa Fe MOW car.  Santa Fe was infamous for diluting the silver paint used to cover an ex-revenue car.

Pecos River Santa Fe tool car with box end.

John Smith commissioned this model which is quite rare and goes for big bucks at auction houses.

PR car used for this project.

I diluted silver latex paint and ours runs in our MOW trains.  I need to apply black decals.
