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.

A string of empty 2-bay hoppers lettered for my home road. They have just replenished the coaling tower at the main engine terminal and are read to be picked up by the empty coal train to be taken back to the coal mines. 

More open top freight cars, loaded or empty.

Found a new Minnesota company that sells ore car blanks.
 
 
At 20 for 80 bucks!, all my trucks get replaced with MTL short shanks anyways.  And at four bucks a pop, they'll be fun to paint and detail.
 
 
More ore cars or coal cars please?

Ore Jennies play a big role on my layout.  TF loads 'em — I unload them.

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!

The Erie runs a coal train with trackage rights over a portion of the NYBW. Here it is passing through Bedford Falls.

The month is still young. We can stay with coal and ore for a while.

The latest additions to my roster. Three 50' Santa Fe ice cooled reefers.

The camera angles make it look like there are 40' reefers in the mix, but they are all 50'.

That load was included with the car when I bought it. There are two different sized tires and there are separate molded plastic sheets for each size. If I remember right, there are three layers for each size.

I love these two structures which were both part of a three structure FSM kit (Roadside Delights) that also included a news stand which I have yet to build and find a place for.

Show us your favorite non-railroad scene(s). No trains or tracks.
