Show me something- July 2018
Posted by Harrison on Sunday, July 01, 2018 12:24 PM

Welcome to the July , 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 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. 

If no request was made by a contributor, the prior request is still in effect.  

Have fun ! 

Continuing with Switching...

Many of us are dealing with extreme warm temperatures. Here's a load of liquid nitrogen to cool things down a bit:

I found a few of these Mobil 3-domes at a train show some time ago. Note the original price on the box end $2.95 - cost me more than that

More tank cars please

I have not acquired very many tank cars yet. I found these two high speed Metal Products tank cars at a garage sale. They are basically toys. They had decent weight to them and I thought they had potential. I notched out the aluminum chassis on the bottom with a razor saw, drilled small holes and installed micro trains trucks. They now roll flawlessly. Later I found another one. But the chassis was plastic, so that one didn't work. I don't know how they could call it high speed Metal Products then? My favorite tanker car so far is the blue one.

More tank cars or cabooses please.

PS.... I hope all the fragile parts on your cabooses survived the derailment South Penn

The same way Classic Metal Works is still called Classic Metal Works even though almost everything they make is made of plastic. You need to be very careful when you name your new company.

I made these tri-level auto rack cars and TOFC flat cars from Quality Craft kits in the early 1970's. The cars are made mostly of wood pieces. 

Please show more auto racks, TOFC flat cars, and/or other flat cars.

Although it no longer runs, this loco has been in my possession since 1976!

How about some passenger trains?

Here are some Alcos hauling the Empire Builder. I doubt the GN ever used its Alco freight units for passenger trains, but I included a steam genertor car following the three locomotive units to make it plausible. 

 

Please show another passenger train.
