Show Me Something: January, 2020
Posted by gmpullman on Wednesday, January 1, 2020 1:21 PM

 

Welcome to the January, 2020

"Show Me Something"

Dedicated to the originator, Jarrell


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

If you show the item requested you can then make a new request of your own, or choose to stay with the current request. 

After 24 hours, the same rules apply, or you can post a new photo of your choosing and make a new request. Your photos should be of models only, not a "real-life" scene. It's all about having fun! Let's see those photos!

All photographs should be original photographs taken my the person that posts them. If the model work is not your own, please have permission and give credit to the person or group that made the models. 


 


These are Kling-type ladle cars for hauling molten iron:

Those are nice-looking ladles, Ed.  The plant where I worked had lots of slag pots, but in the time I was there, all the iron moved in torpedo cars.

Here's one of GERN Industries' many tank cars....

The third unit in this consist is an SD9. It follows two SD7's. Burlington had a large fleet of these versitile SD's, and used them all over the railroad. 

 

Please show any First Generation EMD Diesel Locomotive.

Here's a model of my all-time favourite cab units, MLW's FPA- and FPB-4...

They were made by modifying Model Power's FA/FB units, and with a lot of additional weight, they were exceptionally strong pullers - wish I hadn't sold them.

Show us some more non-EMD locomotives, please.

Well, according Bachmann, my five Grand Valley Consolidations are all products of Baldwin, although I have a few more that will eventually represent MLW, CLC, and/or CCF and ALCo.

Here's the 24, just out of the paint shop...
