Weekend Photo Fun 8-10-18-??

WEEKEND PHOTO FUN is here!

Last Saturday the VMT celebrated Grandparents Day. I spent most of the day in the basement running Standard and O-Gauge Trains on the multi-gauge layout I have been building as a part of the Roanoke Valley Model Railroad Club.

The four smallest Southern Pacific Daylight steam locomotives, each a 4-4-2, were numbered 3000 through 3004. Two were painted in Daylight colors and two were black. Mornings, they pulled Train No. 54, the Sacramento Daylight. The route was the flat San Joaquin Valley floor from Sacramento to Lathrop. At Lathrop, the five passenger cars were detached, then added to the San Joaquin Daylight, Train No. 52, heading to Los Angeles. The afternoon was spent on a layover waiting in Tracy for Train No. 51 from Los Angeles to arrive. After the passenger cars were added in Lathrop, Train No. 53 was a return trip to the capital city, arriving that evening at six pm.

I've been busy designing, 3d printing, and building truck beds for 1/43 pickups!  So far I've done a few from a utility bed, roll on auto deck, and old 1050's telephone truck.20180729_17041320180808_201955

I also spent an hour or two planing trees on the layout on one end!  Trees really make a big difference in looks!

The LionScale O scale Union Pacific Fruit Express 57' mechanical Refrigerator cars look like the real cars that used to be in Grand Trunk Western freight trains during the 1990's. Need some lettering on the ends of the cars to complete the look.
