Please show more fun photos, or scenes of people having fun.

Ed, Thanks for starting the Weekend Photo Fun for June.

Here is a doggy having fun watching the lake on a beautiful afternoon.

Show me anything else you think is fun.

Also going for a motorcycle ride, also in Southport

Dogs have fun riding as well, in Greenvale Junction on, my layout

Mark: Great fun to watch, but I think that your post was meant for the Weekend Photo Fun thread. This month the Show Me Something thread has "Photo Fun" in the title, and that might have caused the confusion.

TWO! Somebody got TWO? Please show another fifty-foot box car S&G or otherwise.

I think Harrison has 3 or 4.

I have about 70 of them! Whistling

Every SGRR "Exchange Service Fleet" freight car is unique. TF has the only forty foot boxcar in the Safety Scheme, and the only fifty foot round roof boxcar. Ed has the only SGRR boxcar with a hyrda-cushion underframe.

Garry and Tony Koester have identical 40 foot boxcars, except Garry's is lettered in yellow and Tony's is lettered in white.

JJ has the only SGRR operating coal hopper in existence.

Making the Exchange Service Fleet is a fun hobby all into its own.

This is the very first HO scale STRATTON AND GILLETTE fifty foot boxcar. I painted this one over twenty years ago. It is also a unique paint scheme since I have become aware the "DF" was not used in 1954. To be honest, I painted this boxcar when the SGRR was still set in 1968.

Show me any 50 foot freight car.

Please show coal hoppers.

Thank you for the fifty footers Garry. I could not believe that took 24 hours.

Here is one coal hopper:

Show me more coal in a hopper car.

Kevin: "Show me more coal in a hopper car."

I have a thing for these little Tyco VIRGINIAN hoppers. I buy them whenever I see them at train shows providing they are not too beat-up.

More coal or aggregate filled hoppers please.

Kevin,

Limestone is too heavy to be loaded that high in a hopper car, limestone is much heavier than coal and so the car would be about 3/4's full rather than at the top of the car.

TWO! Somebody got TWO? Please show another fifty-foot box car S&G or otherwise.

 

I think Harrison has 3 or 4.

I have about 70 of them! Whistling

Every SGRR "Exchange Service Fleet" freight car is unique. TF has the only forty foot boxcar in the Safety Scheme, and the only fifty foot round roof boxcar. Ed has the only SGRR boxcar with a hyrda-cushion underframe.

Garry and Tony Koester have identical 40 foot boxcars, except Garry's is lettered in yellow and Tony's is lettered in white.

JJ has the only SGRR operating coal hopper in existence.

Making the Exchange Service Fleet is a fun hobby all into its own.

 

I am fortunate enough to have a fine looking (and operating) Stratton and Gillette Comet Freight refrigerator car, reporting mark SGRT 65138. One of these days I've got to see if I can actually take a decent picture of it and figure what photo site I want to use.

Limestone is too heavy to be loaded that high in a hopper car, limestone is much heavier than coal and so the car would be about 3/4's full rather than at the top of the car.

That is something I have often heard, but not what I have seen. When I was working in the Florida Rock Industries Limestone Quarry on Alico Road in Fort Myers, I know they loaded limestone all the way to the top. I do not know if they used special aggregate cars, or what the details were.

I know my overall exposure to prototype railroading is very small, so a lot of what I see is not the actual normal way of doing things.

It is not unusual for me to see a hopper car fully loaded with rock when I am out train watching. Again, I do not know the details about this load or the freight car hauling it.

Thanks a bunch Doc Wayne and Garry, this forum's kind and generous modelers are a constant source of inspiration and learning. 

Btw, thought the Rolls in the service bay was a stretch, but then remembered the last Rolls I saw, an older model, and no kidding it had a Dead-Head sticker on the back.  Regards, Peter

Ed's Request: Another Diesel Pair.

Let's keep this going with another diesel pair!

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!

Aside from a fully painted Bicnetennial diesel, Boston & Maine painted a few with a simplified scheme. I painted GP7 BM 1715 as it looked in a photo taken around 1979 after a few years of hard use.

Shown on a section of my layout that has since been rebuilt

Show me another Bicentennial locomotive or red, white or blue.
