I have also purchased a lot of paints, detail parts, rolling stock and structures from the Bob Bowes estate. Bob was a excellent rolling stock builder who liked to modeled trains running through NY State...meaning a lot of New England cars and kits. He also had his own home road named equipment, but everything is very detailed and nicely done. I purchase maybe 20 (but in actual fact over 30) pieces of rolling stock plus some kits which still need building, all his paint and a good amount of structure kits and detail parts. I now have a few hundred jars of Floquil to sort out and to store away.

I do have a backlog of prototype posts and one throwback Thursday by Peter. I also have a couple of before and after structures for you to see. So when I am near the internet I will keep up on my posting. Now that we are into the second half of this summer I guess I will see if the weather keeps me in the layout room or up at the lake...George Dutka
|Two of Bob Bowes hoppers which are I believe Tichy models. They were in the $5.00 box missing the odd coupler or stirrup. Will not take much to get them rolling on the WRD.|
