John,

   No wet sanding as Steamer said, no need for it any more with the good paints we now have available, especially the high quality quick drying Rust-Oleum when you use a good Rust-Oleum under coating.   No need for the mess what so ever.

Time between coats depends on the humidity of the day and how warm it is also  Further I use the heat light after very coat including the Under Coats.  Having a pretty much dust free environment to paint in, is a big help also.

If I paint in the morning, let the new paint on the item set up nicely, then put her under the heat lamp to final dry, I can usually put on a second coat that evening.   If I still had an oven I would use it, however it was very old and I trashed it during the mover to the new house.

Restoration on the old Nicked & Scratched 817 Caboose is  coming along nicely.  I am leaving the original faded Gold Trimming as is, will Buff up the original Lionel Brass and the Orange colored Window Trim will remain as they are also.  I usually wait about 3 days before reassembling the Trim work on to the Caboose so the paint sets up real nice and hard.

Gee Dave, That looks pretty sharp. I have a bunch of them, too. Another project to add to my post-retirement to-do list.

Terry Hudson,

Real nice job on the Black 217, congrats on a very fine looking Caboose!

John,

    Real nice 261E & Tender!   Great pick up!

Steamer,

Thanks for the advise on the Gold Trim, however I want a little rustic look to the Gold, so I was thinking about leaving the original Lionel Gold Paint on the Trim.

Never worry about what other people think, be strong and walk in the way of the Lord.

I did this black 217 awhile back to match my 408e crackle black

Terry, I couldn't tell if that is a reflection off the red roof of the Gateman's shanty or if you actually have red on the back wall of the caboose. I was thinking that might look pretty attractive, gloss black caboose with gloss red exterior walls under the roof on each end, but maybe you have already done that.

Nice touch!

Chris,

Just finalized the 817 Black and Gold Restoration this morning, very satisfied with how she came out. 

Living around Pittsburgh, Pa ya got to love the Black and Gold Tin.

Terry Hudson,

The Red Door on the big 217 Caboose is fantastic, will need to give some serious thought to painting Orange Doors on my 817 Caboose.  Might be a real nice touch.

Made some progress today.

I added a roller and light to my Ives caboose and did a little restoration on the Lionel 2719.

Also had to show my ZW-C. This is one I got off eBay for the price of one brick, but it came with two! I needed to fix a few things that the previous owner botched when messing around inside, but she works good now! I want to thank PRR/Dave for continually bashing these so I can get great deals on them.

I finished the frame and trucks for my work caboose.

I started painting the work caboose roof and found that my Train Enamel paint was not sticking to the metal. I had to wipe it down with mineral spirits and prime the parts. I hope to get them painted next weekend.

George S,

   Way cool rolling stock, can't wait to see the Work Caboose with some serious Paint on her!  The lighted IVES Caboose is way way Cool!  Now that is serious custom upgrading!

You are welcome to the price drive down on the ZW-C, just remember you can not get into Tin Plate Heaven while using those stinking evil Bricks.  Hope all runs well for ya George!

I started a standard gauge layout in the basement of the VMT. There is an On30, N, O and HO layouts in the same area. Most people there have never seen a standard gauge train before. I only brought 1 engine to test the track and discovered the battery was dead. So here we have 5 digit command with Protosound 2

LOL

I like your new version of hands on speed control !  BEAUTIFUL ENGINE.
