Smoke

Southern Railway lives on
To start things off this week i'm almost done with my GP30. I have to put the horn and whistle on and paint the numberboards and then decal them. It's sitting next to my Atlas 8-40CW also receiving southern paint, and my SD75M also going to be receiving southern paint in the near future. My sd90mac rpp shell is also sitting there.

Smoke, you must have read my mind. :D I posted the other wpf thread 1 minute after you posted this one. Oh well, the other one just "went away". ;)


Here's my meager contribution...

[LATER EDIT] Somebody flip-flopped the threads on me while I was trying to respond to another WPF...!:rolleyes:

Eric - Great to see ya back in these parts! Nice-looking dwarf in the lower right, maybe someday I'll get those on my layout (one thing at a time LOL)

Smoke - Great job on the hi-nose GP30, if I didn't know you're an N-scaler I'd have thought it was HO with that kind of detail. And that AC4400 looks great in a tuxedo...:cool:

Here's a pair of shots of the same scene. I thought I'd try Fog-In-A-Can since Paul Dolkos uses it when he photographs layouts for MR. The first shot is 'before', the second one is after I inundated the area with the 'fog' (totally non-toxic and non-residue):

I fooled you it's actually HO scale.

Smoke - Great job on those locos

Eric - Love the trackside details

Ken - That fog-in-a-can works great. Really makes it look like a harbor scene.

Sorry for the bait and switch, Ken. :D The downcombers on the blast furnace in the distance remind me of home. ;) Great shots!!! (and work).

This week I scratched an ore separator house for the Rock Ridge Mine. Here's the prototype.



Here's my version with just the base paint coat. It is wood siding instead of steel.

Great job Space. Are you going to put it on a tipple like the proto?

I've got a critique thread going on this weathering job, but here's one of our new hoppers. It's one of the few I've used india ink on during weathering.

Hey Nate! It's a Roundhouse that we bought used at last weekends train show. I wish we had twenty more in that paint scheme! It got a light weathering job and was pressed into service in the Platte Canyon mining district.

That'd make for a 'purdy' train. The orange end breaks up all the black quite nicely. I couldn't find anything quite like that on eBay...I'd imagine anyone who has them would want to keep them!

Holy CRUD Ken thats a COOL shot!

BTW Smoke, thats actually a SD90/43MAC you got there, the SD90's have an angled hood over the engine and two stacks. Not that it matters.
