Show me another blue automobile. .

A blue Model A is stopped on the bridge as the driver, turned photographer, makes a quick Kodak.

Show me another blue automobile.

Here's a blue roadster at the Elfrida station...

...but I hadn't noticed, when I took the photo, that the background is actually that of the town across the aisle.  One of the benefits of occasionally putting the camera on the layout, looking back towards the aisle, yielding views that we'd otherwise never see.

Wayne

Please show me a picture taken with the camera on your layout, which let you view a scene from an angle which you wouldn't normally be able to see.

My big noggin wouldn't fit inside the roundhouse, this I'm quite sure of!

Another scene, please, where a normal viewing is not possible without a camera or periscope.

That's a great looking scene, Ed, with good depth of field, too!

gmpullman
Another scene, please, where a normal viewing is not possible without a camera or periscope.

A quick look in only one of my photobucket albums yielded over a dozen photos taken with the camera on-layout, allowing views otherwise unseen.  Depite that threatening-looking sky, this is one of my favourites, taken with a 2 megapixel point-and-shoot camera...

After adding the above photo, I copied it from photobucket, then edited-out the "sky"....

Wayne

How about some more of those not-normally-viewable scenes, please.

Here is my favorite, not-normally-viewable image from the BRVRR.

 

More not-normally-viewable images, please.

Here's a red boxcar, a CP Rail with the multimark. 

Show me another boxcar of any color, please. ((Bonus is still valid if it is a SGRR car!))

There is a boxcar in this photo.

Can someone show me a copy of any of the cars in this photo?

Yeah, a couple of them.  Brent, I'm uncertain if the boxcar in the foreground is the same as this one, but it at least has the stacked Canadian/Pacific/Railway...

...but I'm pretty sure that that Dominion-Fowler boxcar in the distance is a CPR car...

Wayne

Since we're here, how about showing us another freight car from a Canadian railroad, please.

Long Live Canada eh!

Sorry I couldn't resist.

It's a 351 Windsor which was an engine made in Canada unlike the 351 Cleveland.

 

More freight cars made in Canada please.

Okay close enough.

It used to be a Canadian, now it's somewhere in North Dakota Ah!

 

At least I'm playing by the rules now.

 

More Canadians please.

The TH&B was my hometown railroad, and hoppers like this had a long service life hauling coal for both the railroad and the local steel mills...

Thanks Wayne!

I wish to be a another participant before I hit the rack.

Just believe me she was a real Canadian in her time.

More freight cars with Canadian Road names please,  per Wayne's request.

On Boothbay Railway Village, one of the roads we model is Grand Trunk which originates in Portland, ME and is a CN subsidiary

GP9 GT 4456 is often paired with CN 1720 for display running, and similar combos were common in practice

Show me something from a Canadian subsidiary that runs in the USA

More non-North American railways, please.

This Garrett is a roll-able but unpowered model.  The owner of a nearby hobbyshop (closed about 2 years ago) got two of them, as kits, in an estate lot, and asked me to build one of them for one of his friends (also an acquaintance of mine).

 


It's lettered for the TH&B, a former local railroad, and numbered 503, another nod to the TH&B, which owned two ex-NYC Hudsons, numbered 501 and 502.

Unfortunately, the friend passed away less than a year later.

Wayne

Please show us some more non-North American locos, rolling stock, or layouts.

Chinese JF Class Mikado, equipped with DCC sound. The model is made by Bachmann China, lettered for the Shanghai Railway Administration. 

 

Show me another structure, locomotive, rolling stock, or layout from outside of the North America.

Here's Iowa Interstate 6988, formerly China Railways 6988, which is a Bachmann China model I Americanized to match the Americanization done to the prototype, and looking a little out of place on the club's model of Keddie Wye.

Show me something else out of place.

Picking up an HO scale truck to place on my layout, my hand seems terribly out of place.  Show me something else that looks or is out of place.

Here's somewhat of an interloper, a C&NW Northern, lettered for my freelanced home-road Elora Gorge & Eastern, on a good friend's CNR-based layout...

The loco belongs to my friend - he found it, for a good price, at a garage sale, and I painted it for him, since it would have been difficult to match it to a CNR prototype.
