Here's a few shots of two hoppers I just weathered. The first is a toy-like Lionel O-27 hopper which had great graphics simulating an old PRR H-21 hopper converted to an icebreaker car. For some reason, Lionel painted it in boxcar red rather than black, but otherwise, the graphics are identical to the prototype. It was used to break out icicles in the Gallitzin Tunnels west of Horseshoe Curve.  Even though undersized and toy like, it was a good car to stick on one of the short tracks around my newly completed turntable, so I weathered up the 15 year old car for display on that part of the layout. There is also a photo of the prototype:

While I was at it, I also weathered this Weaver Lackawanna cement hopper weathered using acrylic paints and chalks:

For my 50th LCJ&I Lines video, I'm celebrating by running 50 freight cars at the same time on my small layout. This involves creating a 3-diesel Lionel Legacy lashup to provide motive power for heavy diecast coal cars, and running two consists simultaneously, since one 50-car consist can't fit on my track layout. It all fits, just barely.

Sirt,

Your weathering is second to none but I too am impressed with the glimpse you give us of your surrounding layout. It too, looks like there is no stone un-turned and looks equally as detailed and weathered. Would love to see more of it.

I got enough stuff for a few weeks. I’m on vacation right now. Started off at Roaring Camp and rode the Santa Cruz train and the Shay logging train. Got a cab ride on the shay. Next week will be for Disney Fans!

I have 8mm film footage of our family riding Roaring Camp summer 1968. Did they ever restore the corkscrew wood trestle??? I thought it was so cool. 

The annual Galesburg Railroad Days celebration was this weekend, at Galesburg, IL. My daughter & I had a good time. It was nice to meet Mike DeBerg & Brian Huang, after 2 years. Picked up my Atlas-O preorders from Caboose Stop Hobbies, since I no longer live in IL.

No, they don’t have the resources and the ability to do it now. It’s a shame that it burned down and if it was around still and operatable, I would of liked having it on my layout
