Jarrell's Show Me Something: January 2021
Posted by NVSRR on Thursday, December 31, 2020 11:00 PM

Welcome to the January, 2021

"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

Last years request:

Show me another part of a layout that was demolished for rebuild

 

A pessimist sees a dark tunnel

An optimist sees the light at the end of the tunnel

A realist sees a frieght train

An engineer sees three idiots standing on the tracks stairing blankly in space

Does the 1:1 cardboard mock up layout count? Of course it does!

Show me another layout from the past.

 another layout from the past.

A challenge was made to build a small station in a week.

 

It lasted for around six weeks.

 

Next  --  A section of scenery that had to be included  on your layout.

Happy New Year! Thanks for starting things off NVSR!

This view shows a helix tucked into a corner:

I wanted a bit of a view block but still wanted to maintain access so I cobbled together a stone-face to hide the loop:

Please show more scenery that was necessary to "hide" something.

This is from the N scale NORFOLK STRATTON layout I built for Scale Rails of Southwest Florida back in 1992. The unreallistic looking high cliff sides hide the mainline staging tracks.

This is on the section in the upper right of this picture.

Show me another bridge please.

I have always be quite fond of these MILWAUKEE ROAD boxcars. This scene is on Mr. Muffin's Lionel Layout in Atlanta, Indiana.

Please show another two-toned boxcar please.

Just a "armstrong" MoW Ballast spreader. Everything here is slow, the Loco. and spreader. Both the short flatty, with Arch Bar trucks, and the ''Climax'' are MDC. The two workers, well one is working anyway, are cast metal. The ''Climax'' #2 is owned by the ''Fallin Pine Lumber Co.'' 

 

Ok, show me a mostly complete piece of Rolling stock on a piece of Rolling stock please.

Ok, how many trees do I need to make a ''Woods"? If three is enough, here is my train in the woods. The Shay is a MDC lettered for the Buffalo and Susquehanna.

Next lets still show a train in the woods.
