This and That - November 2023

Limited edition 75th Anniversary Plasticville® U.S.A. kits are now shipping in HO and O Scale with special retro-themed packaging! Displaying the colors found in their original promotional artwork from the 1950s.
A bit of a mix of topics...George Dutka  

Bruce Douglas sent me this photo that he made up from images from my book. Thought it looked neat so sharing it with you. Bruce was once in the publishing business.
A CP freight today has a deadhead caboose on board over the WRD. Both cabooses are from True Line Trains.

A bit of the tank car has been repainted. Seen on CN 383 heading to Sarnia on Oct 31, 2023.

The BarMills shack pack included this small barn which I used for a bit on the layout. I decided to convert it into a waterfront structure once it was retired from the layout in 2021. 

The local Rutland Ry. switcher waits its turn at Bellows Crossing in this photo I took maybe 20 years ago on the WRD. The B&M milk extra is almost clear with a string of Brookside Creamery milk cars. The Rutland Ry 0-8-0 is a Proto engine with a few details added and new decals. This engine was one of my first DCC and sound engines.
