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 am going to start September with a beautiful picture from one of our departed members.

Here is a GE 44 ton locomotive:

How about a Hudson in a tunnel?

Please show me a train in a tunnel or going under something.

Here's a Northern Pacific passenger train running under a Great Northern bridge with a Spokane, Portland & Seattle local going over top. Sorry about the state of the layout. Just getting started.

 How about another under/over?

I love it. One of my plans (I have so many stashed in my "ideas" folder), is to build a steel center cupola SGRR caboose using the Tyco streamlined cupola.

I don't have a finished picture, but I did build this one:

I kept getting outbid on the brass model of the FRISCO center cupola baggage caboose, so I decided to make my own. It turned out nicely.

It might not be painted yet. I decided to buy brass end rail assemblies for it because I kept on messing up the ones I tried to bend from wire and solder together.

Show me any caboose please.

In the 1960s there was a shortage of cabooses. The MEC shops converted a number of 40' boxcars to cabooses. I kitbashed an Athearn boxcar and wide vision caboose to resemble one of the prototypes.

Show me a cattle car
