My projects from the last week is a free Model Railroad Discussion Forum and photo gallery. We cover all scales and sizes of model railroads. Whether you're a master model railroader or just getting started, you'll find something of interest here.

It's been an interesting week for me. Lots of repairs, getting a job at the local train shop, and lots of new cars.

First, My new cars
ATLAS TRAINMAN C&O style caboose NS 555518
ATLAS 60' Auto Parts Box single door NW 600042(NS paint)
Athearn 54' PS Hopper NS 252036(I think that is the number)
Bachmann 3-bay 100 ton coal hopper with weights and load, NS 144711

My new track, bunches of 28" radius curves(yes, with the layout I have, it is still Bachmann for now(will convert to Atlas when I get money)

Problems with them,
Athearn Hopper, no couplers/coupler boxes(quick fix, just snagged some moe from an old car that is in the repair pile)
The track, had to change my whole layout design.

So, also changed at least 30 couplers, 10-15 coupler boxes, and got a lot of new stuff to work with.

Well, another 2 weeks of work and I can get the next two tables and add on to the layout(YIPPIE!)

Certainly, I have been busy, and I'm still working, need to install some grabirons on two cars today.
