Jarrell's January 2019 Show ME Something!
Posted by gmpullman on Tuesday, January 01, 2019 12:54 AM

Welcome to the January, 2019

"Show Me Something"

Thread

Dedicated to the originator, Jarrell


 

This is a place where forum members can post their photos featuring a view of a "requested" scene or object.

If you show the item 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 a submission of their own choice of subject and then make the next request. It's all about having fun! Let's see those photos!


 

 

Welcome Everyone!

It is a new day of a new month in a new year. Show me something NEW on your layout or in your roster...

I have a new, New York Central RPO car for my M & E trains.

Hi Ed,

Nice car!

I haven't posted on the Show Me thread for a long time because I never seem to have the right stuff to show, but today I can fill the bill. I just got this InterMountain FP7 a couple of days ago. It was very reasonably priced, at least by Canadian standards. A Loksound Select is on order for it.

I photographed its good side. The grill on the other side had come loose and I had a bit of a time getting it to lay flat when I was re-attaching it. It had popped up in the middle and I couldn't get either end loose so I could eliminate the bulge. It looks okay to the naked eye but the grill looks a bit wobbly when it is photographed.

Please show me another new acquisition!

Dave

HAPPY NEW YEAR! Ed, thanks for kicking off this month's edition.

After being completely disassembled, stripped of paint and re-assembled, RCRX 1048 sits with it's new paint job and data, soaking up some sun...

James said: "More new items."

I purchased five NYC Pacemaker cars at the Lakeland Train Show a couple of weeks ago. All five are shown here with two more that I had on hand.

Something else new, please.

I love Shays Timmy, my pocket knife souvenir has rivets.

More Shays please, New Year's Railfans.

And I almost forgot, you never show or gift a knife without a penny to not sever the friendship.

More shays please.

This little 3-truck Shay should fill both requests. Its obviously a Shay locomotive and it has lots of rivets showing.

Shays, please.

You missed me Ed.

By three minutes Embarrassed sorry. I sold my only Shay about ten years ago.

I could use one of the "hooded" ones like the NYC used on the West Side of New York City.

Thanks Ed for info on NYC Shays. Might make an interesting project, though the running gear would be a nightmare.

Thanks again.

...Might make an interesting project, though the running gear would be a nightmare.

Why?  The running gear is just as exposed as it would be without the covering. 

You could make an even more modern version by using the bodyshell of an F-unit or FA-unit (my preference), with, of course, a cut-out area for the cylinders and driveshafts.

Pre 1955, MEC cabooses were two shades of red - caboose red on the ends and boxcar red on the sides. From my layout

Show me a interesting caboose

I don't know if an Athearn Blue Box caboose would be considered all that interesting, but I put a fair amount of work into it, including re-working the original diagonal-panel roof into an older style...

...and scratchbuilt the end railings and ladders...

Show me something scratchbuilt or kitbashed, please.

The Paper Mill in Plattsburgh started as a junk enginehouse, I fixed it up and kitbashed it so one side is closed.
