Its time for Weekend Photo Fun!!  

I am starting this week’s photos while being on the road in South Carolina. Unfortunely my computer is dead so the only photos I have access to are a few in my phone.

Happy Friday! 

Busy week on the layout. Made a bunch more changes. Decided to get a few more realistic buildings & replace the Plasticville. New signals & crossing signals arrived as well. The farm is being relocated at request of my cow/horse crazy kids to a new spot w/ a new Woodland Scenics barn & more grazing area for the cows. 

While not a big fan of 60's Lionel, I do have a few items from that decade. 230 C&O FA-2 leads 1961 set 1643 through the rural countryside 
Image

Decided to keep the 132 station ( albeit in repainted form) as I needed something to tie in w/ PW Lionel. It was relocated close to it's original spot, but I added a spur on the rear for REA shipments. With the layout of the station, it works well. The new signals stand guard looking north.

Image

Built a small hill to act as a scenic block between the 2 tracks 
Image

few more shots of the station & hill -

Added an MTH farm house in the back corner. Having a farm house was on my list of must haves. 
Image

With the land left vacant from the farm move, urban development quickly moved in & added a road & country post office. The grain bin & corn field will stay put however.

2046 gets a highball as she pulls out of the station w/ a set of 2400 series Pullmans.

My new kitten Beto loves hanging out when I'm working on the layout & running the trains

My layout AKA "Jasper's Rock" turned 20 years old in December 2018 (Dec 1998 to Dec 2018). Here are some early shots from 1999. I no longer have these locos / cars and today this area of the layout looks nothing like it does in these photos.

Just about finished up with the rebuild on a rusty and crusty 2330 today with the arrival of new pantographs and insulators.  It's just waiting on a new horn since the original one no longer functions.  It's definitely not a pristine example, but I think it's a neat piece of Postwar history.

I have enjoyed watching your videos of your layout.The trains look real good and the layout makes forget your looking at a model train layout.

Our pair of Lionel Penn Central U33C's showed up earlier this week. My son Steven got them unpacked and into service along with a Conrail U30C from a few years ago. Here the trio is heading westbound towards Altoona as they slam across the grade crossing at Anderson Road along the heart of the former PRR Middle Division. You can bet that except for shortly after delivery from GE, these things never were this clean in real life!

The new MTH Premier SOO LINE 40' box cars arrived. They will be coupled with the Atlas O SOO LINE 40' box car.

Nice!

I made 2 versions a few years ago, tired of waiting and also found a rare Weaver.

Such a common scheme that took many years for MTH to finally offer. Very odd. Now you need the other SOO scheme. MTH just cant shake using those ugly superior doors on everything.

Nice Neal. I think we are the few that like the PC. On another note: Did you ever think of using frost spray on parts of your background to simulate fog? It might push the scene further back and add some more interest. Just a thought.

looks great to me!

Thank you.  I really like the patina that it's obtained over the years that it sat waiting for its next life.
