Yes, a true sentiment, and it’s great to see different contributors joining in with their really Good Stuff as well!!
Thankyou all!!

The local switcher waits for a passing freight.

I have to say, I broke down and bought Photobuckets $15 a year upgrade.  What a HUGE difference in the way it works.  Quick, no ads, no problems, as of yet!

Rick, this is just a point of interest.

You mentioned NH's early PS-1 boxcars. Beginning in 1963, the Akron Canton & Youngstown leased 147 of the 10'0" IH PS-1 cars, which became AC&Y 3200-3346. They also leased 113 of the 10'6" IH PS-1 cars, which became AC&Y 3347-3459. These were the first boxcars to carry AC&Y's bright yellow paint scheme with red lettering. They were off the AC&Y roster in 1979. Some other AC&Y yellow cars had black lettering.




I knew that and some other railroads ended up with with ex-New Haven Boxcars like the Rock Island and Wabash (and Wabash Subsidiary NJI&I) that I know of.

I did one of the ACY's ex-New Haven cars a couple of years ago!

I also did a Wabash Ex-New Haven car.

Rule 1: This is my railroad.

Rule 2: I make the rules.

Rule 3: Illuminating discussion of prototype history, equipment and operating practices is always welcome, but in the event of visitor-perceived anacronisms, detail descrepancies or operating errors, consult RULE 1!

I know I am late, and the weekend is over. I hope there is still some time for fun. I just developed the skill of adding pictures to my posts!


This is a car I made for running on a local hobby shop's layout. It is the only thing I could find handy with green in it. The load is from Lionel for O scale flatcars. Just repainted a little. The flat car is box-stock Athearn Blue Box.





Happily modeling the STRATTON & GILLETTE RAILROAD located in a world of plausible nonsense set in August, 1954.
