SHOW Me Something: April, 2018
Posted by gmpullman on Sunday, April 01, 2018 4:23 AM

 

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

Last month went to seven pages! Can we beat that in April?

 

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 or choose to stay with the current request.

 

Your photos should be of models only, not a "real-life" scene. After 24 hours, if the requested scene has not been posted, anyone is welcome to make their own submission and then make the next request of their choosing. It's all about having fun!

This is the link to the MARCH thread: 

http://cs.trains.com/mrr/f/88/t/268619.aspx

 The last request:

Any more rail workers? T e d

Ed .... A Big Thanks for starting this month's Show Me ..... Your photo is fantastic .... I suggest a rule if a person does not make a request, the previous request remains in effect. 

CB&Q modernized heavyweight diner....

MBTA commuter train from the 1980's.  Trains like this ran out from Boston thru Melrose until the aged Budd RDCs and vintage F units were replaced with new rolling stock in the 1990's. At this time the engines in the RDC's had died during the great blizzard of 1978 and they needed the F unit to make them move. The F unit is an Athearn, repainted for the MBTA and the Budd cars are Athearn Budd RDC, again repainted by me. 

  Show me anything at all.

A contrast to your sunny warm day, Peter.  Winter blew back into Wisconsin yesterday, so this still seams appropriate!

I like fishing scenes, lets see what you have.

The three fish on the table were caught earlier and are soon going to be cooked for dinner. Oops looks like the fishing pole fell on the ground.

Three fish ready for the grill

Please show me more fish stories.

More filling stations please!

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!
