Jarrell's Show Me Something, October 2020 Edition
Posted by SeeYou190 on Thursday, October 1, 2020 12:48 AM

Welcome to the SEPTEMBER, 2020

"Show Me Something"

Dedicated to the originator, Jarrell

Rules and Guidelines: 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.

EVERYONE IS WELCOME

The last request from September was from Allan:

From way back when the STRATTON AND GILLETTE was N scale, and set in 1968, we have this SGRR TOFC flat with a private trailer loaded on the deck.

Please more trailers or containers on railroad cars.
