    To the UN-"PC" Crowd-Merry Christmas...

    Eric! IMHO, Trans-Siberian Orchestra is the only way to enjoy rock music and Christmas at the same time. In fact, I've got them going on WMP right now... Matt

    My "Leaser" project

    Kevin! I was wondering where you'd gotten to. Are you using a prototype for this? I looked for a photo of your number or one close to it, and couldn't find one. The lowest-numbered NREX SD50 I found was in the 5060 series. :rolleyes: :) Sorry, I just have a critical eye for prototypical...

    ? about correct detail parts for Conrail Dash 8

    I e-mailed Wes Reminder about this a while back. He uses PL-155. To me, it looks like that would be correct. Matt

    Regular Athearn VS. Athearn Genisis

    Are you referring to Athearn's Blue-Box "kits" or Athearn's RTR line? There's a big difference in Athearn BB and Athearn RTR, and a HUGE difference in Athearn BB and Athearn Genesis. There is a difference in new Athearn Genesis and Athearn RTR. There's not as big a difference in Genesis's...

    Dave! Ooooooh. It sounds like I mean "So, what about Vandy?:mad:" Actually, my intent was "Yeah, Vandy's tough." Diarrhea of the mouth.:rolleyes: Matt

    Yeah, whattabout Vandy? 0-2, but, c'mon...Bama 13-10 and Michigan barely sneaking by them for three quarters...usually they're good...or they're bad...mainly they're bad. Okay, enough sports talk on a train forum. Matt

    Josh and all: I've some to my Photobucket: (Read-only password: CSXT) ...and some to my RRPictureArchives site: Truth is, I have many more. It takes me forever to upload photos, even with cable...

    Minor weathering test

    Agreed. I was not in any way downplaying your idea, just adding to it.

    Minor weathering test

    *Resurrection of an old post.* Regarding weathered trucks: That works, but there are great variations in color on trucks. I start with a grimy black base, or flat black from a spray can. Next, I hit it with various "pastes" of AIM powder & various liquids, such as hairspray, water, and rubbing...

    Proto-weathered thread (again)

    I can't BELIEVE it's been this long... ...since I've posted in the weathering forum. I'm digging through my files, and will upload items throughout the next week. I will post a Photobucket link to my special section.
