Once upon a time you had to be on the ball to be able to post on this thread, I was generally far to slow when I did have a photo of the “show me” in question, or else didn’t have a photo at all.
 
So I’ll try to make this simple for anyone to join in, please show me your favourite model railroad thing.
Cheers, the Bear.Smile

please show me your favourite model railroad thing.

This is currently my favorite structure.

Favorites change from time to time. My Trainmaster was not always my favorite locomotive, and  I think when I paint my SOUTHERN PS-4 Pacific, it will not be my favorite anymore.

Please show me your current favorite example of anything.

Kevin: "Please show me your current favorite example of anything."

These FAs are my current favorite Pennsy diesel locomotives. Pennsy FA2 #9617 in the lead of a string of gondolas on the BRVRR east bound mainline.

More favorites of anything you like, please.

Favorite structure? Ah, yes. You can only see this from the back side, but I built this modeled after a structure that disappeared shortly after I copied it. It was between the PRR station and the Catholic Church.

Block building

Another favorite if you please.

This is my favorite caboose model. It is a brass model of a GULF MOBILE AND OHIO prototype that was imported by both Hallmark and Sunset. I have ten of these for service as the "standard caboose" on the STRATTON AND GILLETTE layout.

Show me another caboose.

Along with the ten GM&O cabooses that are the "standard caboose" for the SGRR, there are ten other individual models that are just one-off caboose models that I like.

I have them because sometimse I just cannot control myself when I see something nifty and shiny. I promised my wife I would just buy the ten GM&O cabooses, but she also picked out some of the oddballs!

This is one my wife picked out. It is a Lambert brass import of a KANSAS CITY SOUTHERN transfer caboose.

Show me another caboose.

Another of the STRATTON AND GILLETTE oddballs. This one is a brass model of a PENNSYLVANIA N6-B cabin car. It was imported by Trains Inc.

Steam to the rescue! Maybe not too oddball since the PRR required helpers frequently. But it sure would have been fun to be trackside to see this combination Cool

The modelling on that unit was done by my late friend , Hans Hubner. He had an eye for getting stuff looking right.

Cheating here to get this thread moving again after our delay. This STRATTON AND GILLETTE caboose will be red when it is finally completed and painted, but it is not red right now.

Show me your caboose!
