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!

Good morning from sunny, smokey, hazy and warm Northeast Ohio!

Here is what I got done this week!

First Up, a Red Caboose 1928 PRR X29 Boxcar kit, painted with Scalecoat II PRR Freight Car Red and lettered with K4 decals. The PRR had thousands of these cars that served through WWII in many services and were substantially rebuilt after the war.

Next a Bowser 1958CF Covered Hopper kit, painted with Scalecoat II UP Covered Hopper Gray paint and lettered with Prime Mover decals. An ex-Lackawanna car used to transport sand for various uses inccluding engine blocks at the GM plants in Bufallo.

Not complete at this time but I have replaced all the plastic lift rings and grabs with metal ones on a GP7 along with bending the large grab on the short hood of DT&I  GP7's.

A pair of NKP Bowser RS-3's with a general freight on the Strongsville Club layout.

Thanks for looking!

Rick Jesionowski

Rick: Thank you for getting us started. I love the look of X-29 boxcars. I have several of them in different variations.

Nothing new for me this week, so I will share a favorite picture of mine from my 30 by 30 photo-diorama I built.

I am looking forward to lots of good stuff.

Living the dream.

Hope everyone is enjoying the weekend.

Rick, like that Lackawana car.  I have a couple like that.

Peter:  Yeah, the Tour has started.   One of my favorite events of the year.

Simon.  Beatuiful Selkirk!!!

Been a while since I posted so a few different things going on.

Finished the last of the interiors of my passenger cars.  Last coach/lounge for the CNW.

Now to go back and start adding people.  

Another passenger car project.  I updated some original Fox Valley Hiawatha coaches to a later appearance by adding the window stripe and changing out the original Nystrom trucks with some old Central Valley sprung trucks. Turned out pretty nice.

Also found a picture of the St. Cloud WI depot and found that main street ran right next to the depot so I had to add Main Street.

To everyone in the States, enjoy the 4th of July.
