Living the dream and happily modeling my STRATTON AND GILLETTE Railroad in HO scale. The SGRR is a freelanced Class A railroad as it would have appeared on Tuesday, August 3rd, 1954, in my personal fantasy world of plausible nonsense.

I hope it is OK with everyone if I start Show Me Something with a tribute to one of our greatest forum friends and contributors by posting an old picture.

Please show me another scene with trucks.

Thanks for setting up the JULY Show Me Something, Kevin! Garry would be proud to know that his excellent modeling lives on in photographic witness.

Please show me another scene with trucks.

Trucks is trucks, that is if they are lift trucks:

When I first began a layout, I had a difficult finding n scale trucks that didn't cost a fortune.  I found several pickups and a flatbed in a hobby shop with the price marked down.

 

Show me more trucks of any type, please.

This locomotive boiler probably wasn't so odd back in the day when railroad shops would routinely replace boilers and/or fireboxes:

I'd like to talk one of the 3D printer folks into producing a cast steel locomotive bed. I believe that would make for an interesting load. Something along these lines:
