Show Me Something August 2017

SHOW ME SOMETHING!

August, 2017

Welcome to the August "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!

Recently I was working on a scene with water towers:

Please Show Me any type of water tanks

Here's a view of the water tower at Elfrida, shot from above the lower mouth of the tunnel on the tracks to South Cayuga...

It's an Atlas kit, with some added details, and a Grandt Line spout.

I built this car from a Proto 2000 kit.  It's a double-decker with two floors.  Note the poop stains.  I wouldn't want to ride on the first floor.  Or anywhere for that matter!  Confused

More livestock cars, please.

Here's an express horse car...

Its prototypes were used mostly for transporting racehorses, but had collapsible stalls, so they could also be used as regular baggage/express cars.
I built mine to match a photo of the real one, replacing the sides of a Rivarossi coach with Evergreen passenger car siding, then added scratchbuilt doors and a few details.  Lettering is from C-D-S, and paint is SMP Accupaint.

More livestock cars, please.

Hmmm!  Two days have passed, so I guess you'll have to settle for this steel trestle, Mel...

The railroad calls it the Park Head trestle, but to most folks in nearby Park Head, it's just "the bridge".

Show me a rail-served industry, please - one with a locomotive in view.
