Thanks alot. The model is a Kato and belongs to Drew Mitchem. Many of the models/rolling stock on the Allen Sub belong to the operating group members. I will try to give credit to them where appropriate.Such a beautiful engine, had it on my Christmas wish list, but I think I got a new Kato SD40-2.
Anyways, awesome pictures, looks like you're getting somewhere!
The coal tipple is Walthers' New River Mining kit, assembled and weathered by Ted Curphy. Soon the exterior light bulbs above the hoppers and near the doorways, etc will be powered up. As budget allows, I am going to get and build a modern flood loader (the cardboard mock-up in the photo).I like the coal loading dock and what's that i spy in the background,,,an OAKWAY unit NICE, very NICE
The machinery flats are still a work in progress. Ted Curphy and I got a number of Intermountain flats (NICE) and Norscot machinery. The intermountain flats come with scale chains/binders.Photos #2 & #6 I likes
What kind of camera?
Also can you do a side shot of your heavy machinery equipment loads? I am curious to see the detail work on how they a setting on your flats. Are you using HO scale chains or black thread?
The CAT repair truck is a matchbox or hotwheel that I got at a garage sale for 25 cents!Brent thats alot of CAT equipment! What did ya hang the stockin up with? 4" screw? hehe Im diggin the cat repair truck in the backgound too. The youngin looks like hes havin fun for sure!
