Hi: Nicely done John, the brick work is outstanding! Mean time, back at Blackwood, the crew of #633 is busy switching loaded coal hoppers.

Great work, John. It's still hard to believe that most of that brickwork is paper.

Gramps, nice haze effect on that picture.

Here's some more progress on the coaling station. The rafters have been weathered and the sheet metal for the roof has been cut to size.

Very nice work, John, DJ, and Jeff. You fellows produce good results. :D

I have been weathering a Rivarossi H-8. I have to make some adjustments yet, add some, tone down some, and the drivers still need a lot of work...some haven't even been touched.

In this image, it is apparently an overcast day. The Allegheny is arriving at Seneca Falls Sub via the interchange from across the River, and is clearly dirty from encountering track where the ballast had considerable silting built up after some years. She'll need a longer servicing when she puts into shops in the next day or so.

Just doing a little roofing work on an old coaling station this week. I want the structure to have the appearance that it was abandoned and hasn't been used for decades.

Fred's Locomotive (and car!) Repair Shop and Brokerage has had the paint shed working overtime. I'll be taking photos of the results when the air dries up and the last coats of paint go on, but the word is that an entire train is almost done, the first complete HO scale Texas and Gulf Coast RR locomotive has been completed, and the PACE commuter train FP-45 has been spot painted for immediate service...
