SHOW ME Something! February, 2018
Posted by gmpullman on Friday, February 02, 2018 12:59 AM

 

 Welcome to the February, 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 hsa not been posted, anyone is welcome to make their own submission and then make their own request. It's all about having fun!

This is the link to the January thread: 

http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/88/t/267142.aspx

...where the last request was Show Me something "Before and After"

Above is a view of my perfectly good nine-stall roundhouse. Well, I'm still wondering about the logic in this exercise — I'm demolishing the 1912 structure and the railroad is now constructing a brand new (1950) era modern roundhouse.

As if I don't already have enough projects Whistling

After I removed the access hatch of the roof I poked the camera in just to see what kind of picture I could capture...

Here is my favorite winter scene. I know you folks that are freezing right now might not like it but it is 85 degrees at my house. This scene is the only winter I get.

A log truck passes a cross country skiier on a snow covered road

Please show me more of your favorite scenes.

Since James did not make a request, I will add one of my B&M LW coaches. They are IHC with IHC interiors that I have modified and painted to like the prototype

The MEC coach is similar, as both RR were under comon ownership and the order included cars for both railroads. The lighting is a Miniatronics lighting kit that simulates fluroescent lights

We have given Amtrack a fair shot with no results so let's try something else.

Here are a couple of water tanks.

Please Show Me your Water Tanks,

.

If my wife sees the HOT & COLD water tanks I will have to install them on my layout!

.

How about a small diesel fuel tank on Farmer Frankin's place? That is a tank of some sort. I have not posted this picture before.

.

As always, click the image for a better view.

Show me another scene with an agricultural theme.
