Wow! I always thought the Marx 591 was a homely little thing, but a bit of TLC and a real pilot truck makes a BIG difference!

 

Been kinda thinking of doing a Southern styled 666. Yours looks pretty good!

When they were passing out brains, I thought they said trains and I asked for a slow one.

Thanks! The conversion's pretty easy. Hardest part was hacksawing off the original axle mounts and filing the cut edge flush with the rest of the frame. I used the same holes the couplers were riveted in to mount the trucks.

I did the PRR Merch car and it turned out pretty nice.

Me too. I've been sort of a model railroad bottom feeder since I was a kid! 

 

 

You guys must get to the shows before me a lot of times. Sometimes those boxes of junk I find really are junk (even by my standards) by the time I get to look through them!  lol

Here is a Lionel 1688 with a Marx 333 motor. I did this engine to pull the U&R Mfg coaches seen behind it.

Andy, I'm also one of those guys that loves junk!  There ain't much I won't take home   Those rusty Red 600/601/602 cars turned into the Orange and Blue cars for my home brewed Lionel Corp passenger set.

Here's a Williams SD45 shell in a color scheme I developed for the Gadsden Pacific Lines, home railroad of the Gadsden Pacific Toy Train Museum. I wanted something that expressed the color palette of our desert environment in Southern Arizona. I call this color scheme Desert Tan and Red Rock. The shell is going to stay like this until I get some decals made for it, so I can add the decals and clear coat before I install the handrails. 

 

The SD45 shell was a challenge to mask because of all the panels and louvers on the side. It's very difficult to mask those small grooves. It was a learning experience and I will know how to do better on the masking next time. This was also the first time I used my new Paasche VLS airbrush. I love it - it's 1000 per cent better than the old Aztek.

Here are some I have done.

 

 

Commodore Vanderbilt that I repainted and installed a double reduction motor and smoke unit in.

 

 

My favorite Marxie is the little 999.  Lots of possibilities in terms of paints themes.

 

If you can read this, thank a teacher.  If you can read this in English, thank a Vet!

Keep the pictures coming. Repainting ole black engines is real fun.

 

Painting Diesels is fun too.

 

This is Marx 1998 engine motor and frame with cut down Lionel SW-1 switcher body painted in B&N colors (Bauxite & Northern, sub of Alcoa in Bauxite, Arkansas).

 

It is a custom job with Lionel coupling on the rear and Marx coupling on the front to allow switching both types of cars.

The L&N RR had a couple of F-3A units before they bought several F-7s. The A-B-B-A “Black Cats” were used for pulling coal through eastern Kentucky circa 1948.

These Williams models began as Denver Rio Grande. ERR electronics control lights, sounds, couplers, and locomotion. Besides adding dual headlights, the hard part was filling and smoothing the three large holes in back of the shells. Can you see the engineer and fireman within the detailed interior? They are best when viewed pulling several black and yellow L&N coal hoppers.

Should I weather them?
