These aren't really on my layout but I felt they were worth sharing.  We got some snow out here at school and I took some military models out and caught these shots.  I purposely got my hands on some winter-camoflauged tanks to take advantage of the snow.

Also who made the end door box car?  I presume it is a 50-foot model?

Ron

Lionel 6-27221? It is a 50 foot with end doors, car #48500.

I recently bought a sheet of newspaper fronts, printed on very thin tissue paper, from an eBay vendor, made by a company called Dave's Decals. A personal printer couldn't possibly make these. Anyway, I scattered several of them around the layout, looking like discarded newspapers. This is the level of detail I'm focusing on now on the layout:

On the side of the tracks, fell out of a passenger coach window?

0321181957-1

Another on the tracks

0321181955a-1

On the bench, the last visitor of the monument forgot his paper(s)?

0321181955-1

Someone missed the garbage can?

0321181954-1

Sheesh, such waste! Don't these people know there's a war (WW2) on? Maybe the raccoon might check out the headlines?

There are a few others here and there (maybe more than should really be scattered around) and a few of them simply blended in too well to even be noticed. I'm working on the 'random debris' that exists in real life but seems to be rarely modeled.

BobbyD, thanks so much for the information.  Although was hoping it might be a 40-footer.  Have to see if I can find one, maybe.

Pat I hope I am not repeating this question.  How big is your layout?  And do you have any shots of the overall layout?

Your layout like Frank's really intrigue me.

Also who made the end door box car?  I presume it is a 50-foot model?

Ron

Hi Ron - My layout is 6 X 17.  The limited space in the layout room prohibits me from taking an overall layout photo.   The end door boxcar is a Lionel scale automobile boxcar which I purchased used at a show.  

I'm happy to hear my layout ( along with Frank's ... who btw has a stunning layout)  ... intrigues you.  

Cheers and Happy Railroading,

I haven't posted photos on here for awhile, and when I tried tonight, I get a screen entitled "insert/edit image" after clicking.  It asks for a "source".  What does that mean?  Also it asks for dimensions, as in "X" by "X".  What do I need to do to add a photo(s).  I have searched everywhere on the website and only get the old directions on how to add photos, which I was familiar with.  
Thanks for your help.

Finally ... retired ... time to play with trains.

Ron, I don't recall a scale 40' plastic model with end doors. Good luck with your search!

Here are a few close ups from my layout.IMG_5491IMG_5454IMG_5459IMG_5870

I love your scenes! So few layouts give you the feel of a real place populated by people doing things. All your photos speak of a place where we'd all like to live!

They are fantastic. Fit right in to your era. Your layout is amazing Lee as are  your modeling skills.

 Thanks very much! I'd taken that for another forum where people were asking to see power/phone/telegraph poles on layouts. It also partially shows the 'new and improved' Stoney Creek Road to the right...

FYI, those are HO scale track spikes as lineman steps on the nearest pole. The transformer was scratch built with styrene, as I'd yet to find a good pre-war-era pole transformer kit/casting in O scale.

Oops!  I didn't know there was a limit.  Thanks for letting me know TedW.  Well, that's all the closeups I have of this layout, which was in OGR #220.  It has moved on to another home who I hope is getting as much pleasure running it as I did building it.  Thanks so much for all the "likes".  My  current layout is still a work in progress, so it will be at least 3 months (maybe 3 years) until  I will have some new photos to post.  Trumptrain, the poles look great!  Are you planning on adding wires to them?  When I painted my poles, I put a subtle dab of black every here and there to represent the creosote still left after the poles have aged.  You can see one in my last photo.  So many great pictures on here.  Good job, everyone!

MdMikey - thanks for the compliment about my poles.  Thanks too for the tip about painting a dash of black here and there on the poles.... great idea!  Eventually I will attach wire to the poles, however, not any time too soon. 

I really enjoy your photos!!

Here are some pics I took last night of the Red Lion Train Station Model Railroaders' layout.  If you are at York you should go see them tonight from 6 - 9 pm. Nice layout.

So impressive Frank! Moon Township is alive with activity! I'm sure to you your layout ,like mine, has taken on a life of it's own. I can even name some of the inhabitants of my layout.

CNJ #1601/ Joe A, Those two scenes have atmosphere!   Very, very cool!

FrankM

Thanks, Frank...your comments are very much appreciated!  Those shots are from my (very) small "toy-train-like layout" that I built many years ago, prior to becoming interested (heck, I'll say it...fascinated!!) with weathering...and realism.  I plan to eventually build a new (and much larger!) layout that will incorporate much more realism...but for now this one will remain just what it was intended to be!

Enjoying this Great Hobby in memory of Dad & Pop...the "original Joe's" responsible for my interest in trains!!

Frank M.,

I am very impressed with your talent in making things look very real. You are truly a teacher at heart. 

Hope you are feeling ok, miss you at York. 

Dave

Absolutely delightful to hear from you, David. I always read your postings and enjoy getting your perspectives on matters. You were always good company, too.

Thank You for these very kind words. Teaching has been one of the great privileges of my life. Nowadays, I continue to volunteer at our parochial elementary school to help children who need a little boost and extra support.

I miss York, too, but I have accepted that there are different things for different times in life, so I am gone from York, permanently, but enjoy the new shape my life has taken.

My health is on the mend, as I continue to recover. Thank you,. very much, for your good wishes in that regard.

Be well, safe, and happy.

FrankM

Patrick and his Free State Junction Railway have offered us a stunning lesson here.  Observe the selected pictures and note that its not what you see; its what you don't see:  trains.

Frank Moon frequently offers us the same opportunity.
