Show Me Something! May, 2017
Posted by Guy Papillon on Monday, May 01, 2017 7:24 AM

SHOW ME SOMETHING!

MAY, 2017

Welcome to the May "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!  

                                              ----------------------

It seems that this Budd RDC was the last passenger service in April.  

Please show me another (RCD) edit RDC or passenger train.

Here's "The Bee", the Erie Northshore's local accommodation pulling out of Lowbanks....

Originally a gas-electric, she was converted to diesel-electric after only a couple years of service.
The moniker, originally a nickname used by the locals, was inspired as much by the paint job as it was by the fact that she buzzed into town pretty reliably after the conversion.  
Management picked up on it fairly quickly, and she's now listed in the timetables as such...The Northshore's very own "name train".

How about some more local service?

Will a work-in-progress local do? If yes, this is my (fictional) local passenger train about to depart, connecting National City and Oceanside, motive power usually an E8m a baggage or combine and 1-2 coaches.

How about a steam excursion / tourist train please?

Every year during 'Railroad Days' restored Santa Fe steam engine 3781, an ALCO 4-8-4 Northern, pulls a mixed up set of vintage passenger cars from western railroads around southern California as a tourist excursion.

Please show me any kind of passenger train.

This project, my wireless remote panning mini camera car, has been process for almost four months.  It has been waiting on a working camera for two months.  I received three DOA cameras in a row, the fourth camera should be here next week.
 
  
 
The circuit board above the battery holders is a two cell Lithium-ion carger card, it unplugs when not charging.  The Arduino BlueTooth module (not in this picture) plugs into the Nano interface shield next to the servo. 
 
More in progress projects please.

I've been putting up the fascia boards on the new section of layout.

I am now starting to test fit where the buildings will go in the area (Milo Mills):

This little guy has been kicking around my workbench for more than 20 years:

I really need an Overland Drive chassis for an SW1500 to complete it. I have a serious love for center cab diesels. A Whitcomb is in my future for sure.

Please show me more old incomplete WIP projects.

It might not be a big project. But, having launched this thread for May, I feel responsible to maintain it going. So there is a Durango Press Fairmount M-14 Speeder. A small project between painting sessions.

An easy one now. Please show me a transition era diesel.

The setting is my new cardboard 1:1 model layout. Trying out photo locations now. You might see a bunch of pictures from me on this thread in the next few days.

Bob, I really like the drag line model in the background. Was that a kit, or did you build it?

.

This is a Walthers model awaiting repaint into the STRATTON & GILLETTE high visibility paint scheme.

.

.

It was photographed crossing the newly installed cardboard bridges on the model of my layout. It is pulling a string of custom painted freight cars for free lanced railroads. Pacific Transportation, Prarie Creek & Western, and Allegheny and Crystal Bay are represented in the photograph.

.

Show me a freight car that you painted and decalled, prototyped or freelanced.

I think that's a Kibri 10384:

Ouch! I bought mine when it first came out and it was something like $20. at the time!

These started life as freight cars and ended up as freight cars. In between they carried troops!

Show more custom painted or lettered cars.

U-18B MEC 404, "Kenneth Roberts". It is an Athearn BB kit that was modified into a U-18 by Chucks Chop Shop in the early 1990s (only way to get one on those days). I bought it as an undecorated kit, painted it, and decaled with Accucals (remember those??)

Show me more custom paint and lettering.

It certainly will! Thumbs UpThumbs Up

Hmmm.  So many from which to choose...how about a pre-Rapido FPA-4...

...and a FPB-4, to go with it...



Paint is SMP Accupaint CNR Green and CNR Yellow, with lettering done with Champ alphabet sets.  The diesels, both powered and with extra weight, are from Model Power, and are extremely good pullers.

I like custom-painted and lettered stuff, so let's see some more, please.
