"More Diesels running light please"

Here are the two latest additions to my N Scale railroad...Pennsylvania RR PA-1 and PB-1 stretching their legs around the layout without any passenger cars (crew training LOL!).

Show me diesels with passenger cars please.

 

EDIT: I haven't posted a picture here since Photobucket was free...so this is my first image using Postimage and I hope it works. Appologies in advance if it doesn't.

How about an old car made into something else?

Later this week I can post a photo of it on a layout.

This is old in another sense. A Varney (?) boxcar from the 50s. Cast metal sides, ends and roof, and a wood floor. The original metal trucks were so worn out the wheels would fall out, so I replaced with newer plastic trucks, metal wheels and kadee couplers. We still run it on the Boothbay Railway Village layout

Something else old please

I have posted this picture in here before.

This is an old piece of N scale STRATTON & GILLETTE equipment that goes all the way to when I was in high school. That was about 35 years ago!

Kevin didn't say anything, but continuing G Paine's: "something old:"

New Haven box car from a Tyco set in the early '70s. I still look for this car and its 40' brother at train shows.

More old stuff please.

Dang it. Sorry about that. It was my oversight.

Here is a very old Bowser turntable that I found in a hobby shop a year ago that completely made my new plans for my layout a possibility. This purchase literally changed everything.

I will not forget to update the request this time... so:

Show me a diesel locomotive(s) pulling a freight car(s).

Well, the STRATTON & GILLETTE has no dome cars in the fleet, with no plans to ever add any.

.

However, I did see these dome cars on the Florida S Scalers modular layout at a train show in Tampa.

.

 

.

Show me another dome car.
