Jarrell's Show me Something: February 2019
Posted by Harrison on Friday, February 01, 2019 7:04 AM

Welcome to the February, 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!

I have an idea for a new rule to the game: after 12 hours if there is no post, than a poster can either post the current request, or post the theme of the month: Coal (If anyone doesn't like this, I will get rid of it.Smile)

 

The last request:

tbdanny

Show me something else scratchbuilt.

Lets see those photos!

Well, this is more of a scratch/bash. It has mostly parts scrounged from the parts bin.

I saw in a PRR photo a bridge affair with water spouts on it. Found one in brass for over $200. so off to the parts bin I went.

Thanks for getting us started this month, Harrison!

Show me another water tank or stand pipe.

A NYC RDC approaches old Berea Station to load passengers as a NYC F7 at the head of a westbound freight train passes on the outer main line.

More station scenes please.

Thanks, Allan!

That deserves another look Big Smile

These were produced by Overland back in the late 1990s. I was glad I had the ability to get one. Found a mate which needed repairs on Ebay not long ago.

 IMG_6782_fix by Edmund, on Flickr

They are brutish-looking machines. These ran in Cleveland from 1929 to 1952. Then they were rebuilt for outside third rail pickup and run on the Electric Division from '53 until mid-1990s. I have more photos and information about C.U.T. Here:

I've always had a fascination for big electric "motors". Broadway Limited is producing a PRR P5a which should be arriving in a month or twoYes

Thanks for asking! Cheers, Ed

Show me more little people in a hurry.

This couple might have been in a hurry or maybe they were just having fun before they were pulled over by the California Highway Patrol.

Please show me automoblies.

Here is a 9-year- old photo of the Farmers Union grain elevator which has two round grain bins.

More round things please.

Here's a couple of "drone" shots of my yard areas, the first one is the transloading yard,

And this area, next to, and connected to the transload area, is the mill and frozen food plant yard.

I guess will stick with the yard scenes.

Mike.

The main yard of the Strongsville Model Railroad Club, with an Alco Powered Ore Drag in the background.

More yard pictures 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!

 The three tier bridge after a lot of pillar placement consideration.

More before and after please.    TF
