June Update 2022

Here is a view of the WRD from 2012. The ballast was still Woodland Scenics grey and was later changed to Highball cinder. My milk train is having a run over the line this day which was two cars and a Rutland combine kit I had assembled.

Not to much to report at the moment. Beginning this month I do have a bit more free time as we have cut down on daily visits to mother-in-law...will see how that works out. I also have made it out a few early mornings when the sun was out. They were short 1-2 hour jaunts just outside the city limits although I have made side-trips on my way to mother in laws in town. 

Once I am caught up with home chores that have piled up I will share some more newer modeling with you. I also have a selection of New England station postcards to share with you...George Dutka 

Fallen Flag hopper in CP yard London, Ontario last week. Might make an interesting model.

A close-up of one end...note the ACI label.

London's current yard switching power. Not sure if there is a decal set out for this variation.

The cab numbering...think they could have done a better job at the stencils?

Here we see the resin boxcar end and roofing offered a few years ago at a local train show for a dollar. When is the last time you got a kit for a dollar. It actually built up really nicely into a line side shed.

Here is Peter Mumby's and mine structure prior to painting.

And the finished models. Mine has a small stack...not sure if there is enough room for a stove in there.

  1. So, on the long hood, it looks to me like they've simply painted over parts of the "om" in the word locomotive to create the letters "cn". Somebody is very resourceful. I like it.
