Jarrell's Show Me Something — August 2021
Posted by NVSRR on Saturday, July 31, 2021 8:59 PM

 

Welcome!

Welcome to the August, 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 months final request is for more F units from GmPullman.

 

 My grandfathers first Varney F unit from the mid 50's   To think it is almost as old as its prototype.

 

More Funits

I wasn't going to share this one, but it has been 20 hours, and this thread needs a bump.

The picture is out of focus, and poorly done, but it does have mis-matched passenger car paint jobs.

This scene is on the store layout at Dana's Railroad Supply in Spring Hill, Florida.

Show me a scene with nothing weird going on, just perfectly normal stuff.

Not sure how tall is considered tall.

This wooden ore bunker is on the museum layout at the DURANGO AND SILVERTON roundhouse museum in Durango, Colorado.

Show me something else related to mining, digging, rock, coal, or ore.

Hmmm... I looked up "hackney", and it said it was a car for hire. I think that means taxi-cab. Sorry if I got that wrong.

The third car in the line is a taxi.

Show me a boxcar with script lettering please.

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!

Thanks Rick, I like the OGDEN.  I'm gonna keep my eyes out for one or two of those to add to my roster.

How about three brand new Great Northerns bought at a steal for 25 bucks?

Omaha Orange and Pullman Green introduced in 1941 on Empire Builder passenger cars and also freight cars I do believe.  Later the color scheme re-introduced in 1962 on diesel locomotives a year before I was born.

 

More two-toned freight cars please.
