Welcome to the August, 2020

"Show Me Something"

Dedicated to the originator, Jarrell

 


This is a place where forum members can post their photographs featuring a view of a "requested" scene or object..

As Ed requested,  "Another diesel/steam powered train, please", here's one.

Thank you for starting the August Show Me Something thread, Bear!

Interesting? Well  Huh?

How about a parade of PRR Electirc propulsion?

A 1914 vintage DD1 then a P5a box-cab followed by an ever-popular GG1 and finally a shiny new Metroliner high-speed EMU.

Please show something else of interest.

When it comes to interesting scenes, the First Coast Model Railroaders group's HOn30 portable show layout is hard to beat.

Show me something else interesting.

I dunno whether it's all that interesting, but after adding new passenger platforms between the tracks at Dunnville, I decided, around 3:00AM, to finally ballast the tracks.  Here's the "before" view...

...and the "after", with another day or two for the glue to dry...

...and still more to be done.

Show me a recent improvement or change to your layout, please.

I had some unclaimed real estate in one of the dogbone loops in this corner:

I decided a chemical plant would squeeze into the space and give my tank car fleet a reason for being.

The asphalt repairs are being completed and we are still adding lights and details:

Ed: "Please show me more changes or before/after views of your layout."

 Not the best photo of the old Berea (now Black River) station.

The new Black River Station. Installation required the removal of a RIP track and relocation of the water tank.

Mel, it's always a pleasure to view your very nicely-detailed layout scenes.

Here's a view of a still unnamed location in its original state...

Well.. Uh... this mine isn't actually mine, but it is a mine.

Try reading the above statement in a voice like Jar-Jar Binks.

This scene is on the Athens Bend Track portable N scale layout.

Show me another mine.

Creechan's Fine Fuels, named for a good friend, is the major supplier of heating coal for the town of Dunnville, and will soon be offering heating oil fuels, too...

...here's the coal dock with the roof removed...

...and the underside of the roof...
