This is the new place for February. The paint is still a little tacky, so watch what you lean up against.
What a difference a 20 minute drive makes, we had 3-4 inches by about 4 pm yesterday so I unleashed the beast and made short order if the driveway just before dark. That with a little bit of salt meant I only had to clear off my truck this morning. I did have to bust over the snow berm at the end of the driveway that the county provided. I'll get that tonight. Roads were snow covered all the way to work, but there was no traffic, so it was an easy drive.'It appears that Murphy got the last laugh after all. In spite of all the hype being spewed by the Weather Channel, Accuweather and all these other clowns, we only got ~2" of snow yesterday and it looks like mostly just snow "showers" today. So not enough to make it practical for me to use the snowblower; all my Saturday preparations were for naught. Guess I'll go ahead and pump the gas back out of it tomorrow afternoon and put the cover back on it.
Speaking of that kit. I actually unboxed it and looked at it yesterday. Doesn't seem too complicated of a kit to put together. Atleast not as complicated as my camp houses. Now would it be easier to construct before or after painting?Justin - You posted last month about possibly assembling a Walther's Merchants Row I structure. I have two of them, on different levels facing different aisles. I like them. Hear are a pair of pictures that might give you some inspiration or ideas for painting
JAMES - I meant to comment on this, but had a senior moment. I don't recall seeing any like that - only the orange and silver type ... but then I don't remember seeing all of them (boxcars) neither? I'll ask a friend!"I have a questions for you DRG&W guys.......
Did the DRG&W have black paint scheme on their box cars? I know they black cattle/stock cars. Did they do a scheme in black say on the 50' FMC or AFC or any of those cars? All black, silver roof maybe and the usual orange lettering? "
