Use a picture program, such as IrFanView and save the file as a .jpg at 75%-80%, 1024x768 or 800x600... It should fit fine then.

Two more shots.

The scratch built rear door, chopped out of the trailer floor of an A-line 45' trailer, from the same scraps bag. I then framed it with a scale 2x4, 4x4 & 2x2.

Vent #1... I have one more exactly like this on the other side to do, and two taller ones on the rear (beside the door). Its cut out of the walkway for the oil refinery piping, then framed with 2x4's (should really be 1x4's or thinner...). I hand cut the hole, with an old hobby knife as the drill, and a new #11 blade...

That looks like some very nice weathering on that building behind the Pennsy PA1. If possible, I'd like to see more of it.

Thanks Tom!

Here are a few that I quickly found. I hope nobody minds more than one. Some are dated. They were taken a year or more ago before I started weathering my locos.











The kit is a Model Power kit. To me it looks like an updated version of the old Tyco or AHM Arlee Station.
