Beautiful, Lee! Great to see that 202 in action as well.

FYI, When I took apart my 202 I noticed that the Southern Pacific orange color overpainted black plastic,  and the inside of the shell was not thoroughly covered in orange. Worse than that, however, is the power truck. At first the wheels did not turn at all. Then with some lubricant and light oil, I persuaded the worm screw to turn while risking stripping the gear teeth with a screwdriver blade. I got the wheels to turn, but there is still major resistance and the motor starts smoking when power is applied and the wheels don't turn. I can't see how to take the gears and axles apart to clean and re-lubricate without breaking the riveted plastic trucks.

I know it is probably not worth the effort, but that just makes it more important to set it to rights. Any ideas?

Thanx!

Pete

Beautiful scenes'...  Where did you get the building in photo 3?  Or did you scratch build it?...  I love all your foliage ,  It makes the scenes more realistic'.. Your modeling style shares commonalities  of my own work, more that any other I have seen'... Your photo contributions are very entertaining and enjoyable to view'...

Qaurter Gauger 48, What a treat seeing those photos of your layout vignettes! It was a veritable, visual banquet. I had never seen anything of yours previously, so if this is your first time showing us some of your  layout, may I encourage you to share more with us! What a visual feast. Each scene looks very realistic and personal. The whole collection of shots has a real artistically unified sense of community. Bravo, sir!!!

Regarding the brownstone-style townhouses, with the boy and his mom conferring at the front steps, the fronts were acquired, several years ago, at Valley Model  Trains website; the sides and roofs were obtained elsewhere from a variety of sources.

Thank you for the reach-back and approval.

Thanks very much Frank, I appreciate hearing from you. And appreciate your very nice comments.  Like wise, your shots and scenarios are equally impressive.

I have plenty of my stuff on the forum, but recently have been posting on the close up Thursday, a few pages back are some of my entries.  I'm familiar with Valley models, and I'll check for those fronts.  Thanks for the information.    And keep on training'....

Quarter Gauger -  thanks so much!   Actually the band " Fire House Five plus One" ( all off duty fireman )  used to practice in the rec room of the fire house, however over the years they got to sounding so bad that the fire dept. made them practice on the rooftop. LOL!

Turned my college roommate's old bed into a train table for a few weeks.  Until they assigned me a new roommate.  Now the trains are stashed in my desk.  Maybe this weekend I'll set them up in my floor's lobby for a few hours.

I thought this would be very timely to share since today is truly opening day....Go Tribe.  For those wondering the two teams are the high school I played for and the other, the high school I coached baseball at.

Honestly I bought them so long ago for the one team (around 2004) I want to say Kramer products but don't know who I bought them from.  The other team I got from scenic Express about a year ago.  The umpires also from scenic Express.

Lee, making photos B&W that are depicting an era before there was color photos adds an authenticity, a suspension-of-disbelief such that the eye isn't searching for details that don't look "real". You could almost hide a center rail in that pic :

Guys I hope I don’t step on anyone’s toes all the pics are great but this week Lee’s Black and white pics steals the show this week. Bravo Lee!

Thanks very much, gents! People have long said you can't get published from a cell phone shot, but I have, more than once, in the model RR press (though I didn't sent a cell shot for my OGR article earlier this year, they got the good SLR shots for that!).

I don't post these for accolades but I'm only human. I'm just glad you like my work!
