Show Me Something: January 2018
Posted by gmpullman on Wednesday, January 03, 2018 2:45 AM

Welcome to the January, 2018 "Show Me Something" thread!

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

If you show the scene requested you can then make a request of your own.

Your photos should be of models only, not a "real-life" scene. 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!

This is the link to the December thread: 

http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/88/t/266502.aspx

 

Where the last request was for a favorite scene...

 Union_Sta_departure5 by Edmund, on Flickr

I like this scene of a lonely salesman walking from his train to the hotel...

Show me another favorite scene.

I don’t really have a favorite scene but I do like seeing my vehicles lit up in a night scene.
 
 
 
 
More favorite scenes please.

Ed .... A big thanks for restarting the January thread. .... Your request is an example of how we should make requests..... Requests should be easy for others to have a suitable photo . I think the rules should say that. People should not request obscure, hard-to-find items. 

I also suggest the rules say "If a person does not include a request, then the preivious request is stll in effect." 

One of my favorite scenes is Standing Falls with a covered bridge. 

 

Please show another favorite scene.

"Favorite scene"

Here is a scene from nearly 10-years ago. A West bound New York Central passenger train passes a short freight headed by NYC Mikado #9519 as it rounds the curve near the Farmers Union grain elevator.

Another favorite scene, please.

This photo rewarded me with a second place certificate in the MCR division 2 Bring and brag two years ago.  So it holds a special place in my heart.

Let's see more of your favorite shots.

I have so many, but this is a one of a kind boxcar!

Show me your favorite boxcar.

.

This is one of my favorites, I doubt I could choose just one.

.

This guy is lettered with decals I received from one of my very first decal trades through the Rail Graphics trading list over thirty years ago. I used the smaller ones on an N scale car, but I still had the larger lettering for an HO scale car decades later.

.

I made the herald myself from bits of several different decals.

.

As always, click on the image for a larger view.

.

Show me a boxcar that you painted and decalled yourself.

Kit Parts for a Railyard Models PC X79 Boxcar.

Finished model, painted with Floquil PC Green and lettered with kit supplied decals. These 60' cars were financed by Kelloggs and used for hauling cereal products out of Battle Creek, MI and sent all over the country.  After Conrail they were relettered and eventually returned to Kelloggs.

Let see more kit built cars!
