Just got word that a train would be passing by the tunnel that had some interesting cars. (Actually I spent a good portion of the evening running this train around the layout and watching it pass various features on the layout. Kind of fun to see the trains pass by what you have been working on.)

I like that rock in the background and the cars. What other photos do you have?

Great work tom! Most of those would look right at home on my SLO&W. Are the Tank Cars still produced?

A quick answer is to check out the link to my Rail Images Gallery in my signature. I am in the process of reorganizing my gallery and once I do I hope to post a topic about how I created the scene. Also I am in the process of writing an article for Railroadforum.com 's online magazine (http://www.railroadforum.com/magazine/contents.html) about how I make rock faces using Sculpta-mold and aluminum foil.

Since Athearn took over Roundhouse they are not being produced. From what I can find out they had not been produced by Roundhouse for many years before that. The one I got (the 2nd Sun Oil) I got on EBay. The other one in the train is a friend's he asked me to weather.

I have only found them on EBay. A freind picked one up for me at a recent swap meet and I am waiting for it to arrive.
