BNSF 3764 huals a short local of boxcars bound for SOMEWHERE...


We'll just say there is a bottling plant up ahead and this section of BNSF territory has a lot of legacy in its equipment...Whistling


Show me a modern local, please.

I'm beginning to realize that Windows 10 and sound decoders have a lot in common. There are so many things you have to change in order to get them to work the way you want.

...Show me a bulkhead flatcar

This is an Athearn 50' flatcar, with the original floor and underframe removed and replaced with a new subfloor of .060" sheet styrene.  This allowed the car to sit more prototypically-lower on its trucks.  I also added a custom-cast lead weight to improve its tracking abilities...

...then added bulkhead ends from Walther's 53' GSC flatcar.  The wooden deck was added to use-up my supply of scale stripwood...

Built from a Rivarossi coach, the car's length is very close to that of the real ones.  I used the roof from a Rivarossi RPO.  Paint is from Pollyscale and SMP, with CNR lettering done with C-D-S dry transfers.  The brass handrails at the steps are from SS Ltd.

Another model of a CNR switcher...

Originally a Proto "Heritage" model, I was going to get rid of it, as it was a very poor puller.  After removing the flywheel and some electronic stuff, I was able to get enough weight into it, making its performance more than just acceptable.

I stripped all of the undersize piping from it (my guess is that the die cutters were working from blueprints of a real USRA 0-8-0, but were unaware that pipe sizes refer to interior dimensions rather than external ones).  Working from photographs, I re-detailed both loco and tender. 
The locomotive's frame was lengthened at the front end to accommodate CNR's signature drop-down handrails, and those well-recessed air reservoirs are brass tubing, filled with lead.

That's a good-looking car, Kevin, and you've really done a nice job on it.  Thumbs UpThumbs Up

....How about some more unique kit bash / scratch structures?

GERN Industries is the largest customer on my railroad (click-on photos for enlargement)...

It's a kitbash of Walthers ADM grain elevator, with add-on silos, plus their Red Wing Milling structure, along with a sizeable scratchbuilt addition made from .060" sheet styrene (which I buy in 4'x8' sheets).

The warehouse for shipping bagged product in boxcars is also scratchbuilt, using the same material, plus Evergreen corrugated siding and Campbell aluminum roofing...

The tanks for liquid products are all scratchbuilt, with the horizontal ones built using the pastic rolls from office paper, while the vertical ones are heavy cardboard tubes with a wrapper of thin styrene.  The rivets were added using a dress-maker's pounce wheel...

I elevated the silos using legs built-up from .060" sheet styrene, and deliberately made them too short to allow a locomotive to fit under - this sometimes necessitates use of an idler car/cars, enhancing operations - there are several such conditions on the layout, all deliberate and all for the same reasons....

GERN was built as a traffic generator, and has proven very useful in that role.  There are also about 50 GERN modellers/modelers world-wide. 

GERN is based on a fantasy character derived by my brother when we were kids, playing table hockey, and he supplies GERN advertising and other novelties on a "as-it-strikes-him" basis.  Here are a couple of examples...

 

Please show me some more kit-built/kitbashed/scratchbuilt stuff.  It's great to see both the creativity and the skills which you all exhibit.

Here is a model of my Grandmothers home as it was in the 1950s.  It is located in Anna Illinois, with the Illinois Central "racetrack" (back then anyway) right across the side road.  My fondest childhood memories were here, and this is where my love of trains really hit.

The model is a kitbash of two "Barb's Bungalows", with scratchwork done on the base and porches.  The water pump and outhouse (2 holes!) were kits.  

 

How about some more scratch/kitbash/kit items..........

Show me a signals bridge

A set of helpers coasts downgrade on the left while another train, also with EMD power, digs in up the grade on the right. Both position-light signals are absolute stop, for opposing traffic, with red lenses instead of the usual yellow. Far to the upper-right the B&O has a clear indication for an eastbound.

Show me any other signal, please — classification or marker light, traffic signal, flag or semaphore, even a radio tower beacon.

Built in September of 1912, this Dominion/Fowler boxcar was last re-weighed in September, 1936....

An Accurail model (one of ten similar cars) I re-did the original plank roof as a metal-sheathed type, a common upgrade to the cars' prototypes.  Custom lettering is from Rail Graphics

It's not plywood, but this load of lumber is "wrapped" in a boxcar...

It also looks as if the load has shifted in-transit - the unseen side, at a lumber yard, is worse, and they've asked for the car to be turned.  I think that a damage claim is likely to be submitted.

For boxcars on my late-'30s era layout, these modified Dominion/Fowler cars from Accurail are about as colourful as you'll see...

How about some more boxcars with more than one colour, please.

A Baldwin "Sharknose" diesel has just coupled onto a freshly painted Pacemaker box car:

Here is one for the "or more" category. For 1954 the TEHACHAPI APACHE AND HUALAPAI is certainly amongst the most colorful boxcars on Earth!

Show me something else that is colorful.
