Athearn BB AMD 103, AMTRAK #120 and its brother at the west end of the BRVRR layout.

AMTRAK isn't local but, it is public and supported by tax dollars.

OK Garry...

Here is a rusty storage tank receiving a tank car from the Northern Union Terminal. This is my favorite tank car that I have painted.

Show me more rusty stuff.

I hop CudaKen does not here about this theme, he hates rust. On the other hand, Little Timmy thinks rust is a good thing.
