Happy June to everyone.

June 1st marks the beginning of Hurricane Season for us in the Southeast. Here we go again...

I hope this is OK with everyone, but I am going to voilate rule #4 right out of the gate.

I am going to start this month with a picture from one of our greatest forum friends and contributors. He will always be missed.

Please show me another small diesel locomotive.

Please show me another small diesel locomotive.

This New York Central "hybrid" has a small diesel for propulsion and battery charging:

One rainy Sunday my daughter spent the day making figures for a stop-action video project she was making for school. Monday morning after I dropped the kids at school I found this in the train room.

 

Show me a water tower please.

The Erie Northshore has water towers at Lowbanks...

...and also at Elfrida...

Both from Atlas, and both with replacement spouts from Grandt Line.

The Grand Valley has a water tower in Dunnville, with separate standpipes (from Tichy) at both ends of town...

...and a similar set-up at South Cayuga...

...with stand pipes at both ends of town, even though it's far from finished.

Park Head, on the partial upper level, uses this water tower, scratchbuilt by my father in the mid-'50s, using both balsa supports and scribed basswood for the tower....

The tank banding is paper, and the spout is made from brass tubing, cut and then soldered to create the taper.
A couple of years ago, I replaced the tower's support system using Evergreen strip styrene,  along with Tichy phosphor-bronze wire as stays, with Tichy nut/bolt/washer details.
While Park Head is currently non-existant, I'll eventually add a separate Tichy standpipe at the north end of the double track through town, and plant the water tower near the south end of town.

In Mount Forest, the northern-most town on the partial upper level, there's another scratchbuilt water tower

...along with standpipes just south of the coaling tower...

Wayne

More water towers or other support systems for your trains please.

EDIT: My apology for appearing to go off-topic, but I'm currently experiencing frozen screen syndrome - don't know if it's my computer or this particular site.

Hi Wayne.  I was just talking to Kevin about it in the diner.  No it's not just your computer.  The site has been freezing up on me frequently for the last couple weeks.  Sometimes worse than others.  Not happening on eBay or anywhere else I browse.

While I'm here, Excellent modeling across-the-board here.  Love that scratch Water Tower as well.

 

Now back to our regularly scheduled programSmile, Wink & Grin
