I guess there are no more animals to be found. Well, lets try something different - Here's a night shot I took on my switching layout, since I thought it would be interesting. 

Please show me more nighttime pictures!

Check out the Balfour and Colucci Creek Southern Railroad, my proto-freelanced N scale model railroad, at bccsrailroad.weebly.com or on Youtube on my channel, N Scale Train Boy.

Yeah, hard to believe we stalled out on a cow request.

This one is actually a test shot. I was experimenting with night time shots, but I was not getting satisfactory results using black steam locomotives.

I switched to this more colorful locomotive to see if it improved things.

Show me another scene in the dark.

Crabapple Cove (I know. Not very original) sits at the terminus of my shortline and the town of Willoughby is a popular place for summer tourists.

A mirror doubles the apparent size of the cove.

Show me any recreational activity.

Please show me the last car on a passenger train.

 
Last month I showed an obs from the 1938 version of the 20th Century Limited. Here are a couple views of the 1948 version.
 
 
I don't normally light my passenger cars but I might make an exception for the lounge area on this obs. 
 
Show me your favorite passenger car, regardless of type.

First wood kit for the MRR ( I have built tons of R/C and line control airplanes out of wood ) and also the first attempt at static grass.

 

The bright yellow window frame is because it is copying what I saw in a coffee table book called "Prairie Sentinals", the office in the book also had window boxes, hanging baskets and flowers galore. They are still to come. I guess the grain guy's wife went crazy.Laugh

More first, please.
