Show Me Something September 2017
Posted by NYBW-John on Friday, September 01, 2017 5:57 PM

SHOW ME SOMETHING!

September, 2017

Welcome to the September "Show Me Something" thread! This is a place where forum members can post their photos containing a view of the "requested" scene or object.

No "real-life" photos but models only. After 24 hours, if the requested scene is not posted anyone is welcome to make their own submission and make their own request. It's all about having fun!

The last request was for a combine. Here a combine is at the tail end of the daily mixed train crossing the Mill Creek Trestle on the Munsee Valley Railroad.

Show me a small steamer pulling a freight or mixed train

NYC Mikado #9519 leads a short mixed local past Grafton Tower and Barron's Fuel Supply on the BRVRR layout.

More short or mixed freights please.

More short or mixed freights please.

 

How about one of each. The NYBW Consolidation is making a facing point set out at the auto parts warehouse as the Munsee Valley daily mixed train is pulling up to the platform at Bedford Falls. The two will  swap some cars in the adjacent interchange yard and the NYBW peddler freight will be on its way. The Munsee Valley mixed train will be turned and begin its return trip to the terminus at Willoughby.

Let's keep with the same theme. Short freights or mixed trains.

Yeah, I was startin' to think that I'd killed another thread.

Here's Bertram's general offices, on Liberty St., which dead-ends at the tracks...

Right across the street is Creechan's Fine Fuels...

More sidewalks or street scenes, please.

Two views of the hustle and bustle in front of Union Station:

1) Chef Ryan overseeing the corner cafe...

2) Redcaps, a couple resting and the bride and groom arrive by carriage...

The folks are starting to line up for the day's first showing of Invasion of the Body Snatchers. 

Nothing reveals the dust bunnies better than close up shots. It took me five tries to get a clean one. I think I got them all. 

More urban scenes, please.

Been stuck on urban scenes for a couple of days, so this is a rural village; Southport on the Bootbay Railway Village layout.

Seeing as no one has posted, Let me reset it.  A Wheeling and Lake Erie High hood waits on the Donora Branch, for a Steel train to pass.  The steel train will be going into Donora

Let's see another high hood

After a long, hard process I finally managed to complete my first custom locomotive with a fantasy paint scheme. Near the end, the thing decided to fight me tooth and nail, particularly when I was trying to put the shell back on the chassis. All in all, I am very proud of myself for this accomplishment. Is it perfect? Of heck no, but for a first time I think it could have been a lot worse.

A CONRAIL SD40 leads a Norfolk-Southeren SD40 at the head of a mixed freight shortly after the merger.

Lets keep it rolling, more EMD SDs please.

I love your Tyco stockyard loading pen. It looks very nice. On my railroad moving cattle by rail has been out of date for a long time so my loading pen is full of tumble weeds instead of cows.

Please show me cattle.

Steak on-the-hoof. My stock yard is still in it's planning stages. Much further weathering is needed...
