Weekend Photo Fun 4-12-19-??

Happy Friday!

Been traveling the last few weeks, but I'm home now. 

Coal is still serious business in Pennsylvania, as evident by a seemingly endless string of coal hoppers wrapping around Horseshoe Curve in Altoona, PA

UP AC45CCTE 7720 leads eastbound 236 through Shawsville, VA in early morning light.

NS Dash-9 9543 leads westbound 23M under the 227 intermediates in Fostoria, PA. With the signal replacement now just a few miles away, this will probably turn out to be my last visit to these classics

I thought oh no, I have no pics this week because I am going to York. Got one though and it cost me, new addition to the roster. Q1

No there's that odd fish that's been staring at me from the back of one of my mags from the 1990's. Jeff, is that one from 3RD Rail? If it is, I'd say that's ironic. That old magazine has been staring at me for some time and I always thought the Q1 was odd but interesting. Glad to see they don't just sit around with the stares of, "What weird thing is this?" Nice find.

Had that happen to my Atlas car too.  Haven't had any luck with the glues I have tired to fix it with.  Used super glue gel so far.

Art,

  I used that glue, work great on many things.

It's an un-powered dummy so he hangs out with powered units like this RSD5

@DAVE NYC HUDSON PRR K4, I am not usually into the one offs.  The Q1 was experimental, only one made.  Idea was a dual service. Going from more commonly seeing the Q2, the wheels on the Q1 are very striking.  Having one set of cylinders in back allowed for large wheels.  Ultimately a fail in that it never went int production. The sole Q1 ended up serving in freight service for quite some time however.

Edit: sorry  yes 3rd Rail. Tmcc added and some other upgrades (LEDs and smoke unit)

Use a good epoxy or Gorilla super glue. DO NOT use a solvent glue (Testors) on thin materials as it will work but can cause issues.....sometimes years later. The solvent will cause the thin plastic to deform.

AMCDave, Cargill sign was made of brass, not plastic.

I made a few additions to the area near the lift up section. I disguised the hinges by covering them with some clump foliage. But per CSX Al’s suggestion, I added some variety to each area so they don’t all look alike. Below are some before and after pictures.

1/2 or 3/4 plywood where the hinges sit on? It look good! 

Yesterday it was 53° and sunny. I had my Thunderbird out and took a nice 2.5 hour early spring drive. Today it's 33° and we have an inch or two of snow. Might as well go in the basement and highball the Super Chief.
