Weekend Photo Fun 7-20-18-??

Some more 1:1 action from this week. I got some interesting lash-ups for sure! A rare CN GMD-1 joins GTW GP40-2 for some local switching.

CN GP9RM and GTW GP38-2.

Another rarity around here. A UP flared radiator SD70M leads a pair of CN SD70M-2s on an Eastbound freight.

A pair of CN/IC Dash-8 "Blue Devils" running a Westbound freight. Notice the hand painted number board on 2456 and the patch work on the 2455. A couple of cool modelling potentials.

What was the old Flemington Station, and the trestle over Hampton Corner.IMG_20180721_074407069[1]IMG_20180721_082507499[1]IMG_20180721_082515829[1]The old station is now a bank. I don't know what it was after being the station, but I do remember it being a small restaurant for a number of years in the 90's. It wasn't a bad place to eat, can't remember what it was called, just remember eating there a few times. The trestle I think has a build date from the 1920's(maybe 1920), think it is on the support.

My daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter are visiting my grandson's summer camp in CT, so I thought it appropriate to run some East coast trains in their honor:

I can't tell you how many times the bridge has been hit and made trailers become accordions, but it is quite a lot. So far this year I think it has been hit twice. One year I think it had been hit at least 4 or 5 times in 2 months.

The RICHARDSON TRGX 3-bay covered hopper was built by National Steel Car. It has not been made in any scale yet. Somebody like Atlas, Bachmann, or MTH would need to make the NSC  3-bay covered hoppers in N, HO, S, & O all at the same time so we could get these covered hoppers in O scale.

But what color schemes do you have for this model besides boring battleship grey?

Jeff,  that looks AWESOME, what a great looking build.  That will look really nice on your layout, I've been following your build now for a while and I really love what you've done with this kit.  I wish I had one but I held off when they came out.  My loss.  Terrific work and choice of colors, the detailing looks good also.  Very nice job and thanks so much for sharing your work.

Hi J Motts,

 

thank you you so much for you very kind words.   It’s taken me a while, but there was a decent amount of kitbashing and trying new techniques.   Plus, I only get about one hour a day to work on the build.

i think I know someone selling a bordello kit.  If you are interested, shoot me an email from my profile, and I will give you his contact info.

thanks again,

jeff

Andrew, nice looking cars, are these scale in size or semi-scale or traditional size.  I'm not all that familiar with the Lion stuff so the reason for my question.  I remember switching those out back in the day when I was a switchman.  Thanks for sharing.

Alex, very nice looking sand house, are you going to put the cross rods that went across the tops of some of the posts to keep the sides from moving apart.

The Potash Corp. has short versions of these covered hoppers. 

The Canadian National and the Canadian Pacific have ordered new National Steel Car covered hoppers.

CN is buying new, 55-foot eight-inch jumbo hopper cars with 5,431 cubic feet of capacity.

The cars will be built by National Steel Car Ltd. at the company’s Hamilton plant.

"National Steel Car is very pleased that CP has committed to this significant investment in our industry-leading, 5,431 cubic foot, high-efficiency, Covered Hopper Grain Car. This newly designed and manufactured National Steel Car equipment will provide huge benefits to CP, our economy, and the entire grain delivery supply chain,"
