    Cool

    @CaseyBerg & Hiawathamr & HoggerDrew great looking Pics guys,

    I was around in the 1950's but I for some reason do not remember Auto Racks like that, really cool the way they are made, and to think of where we are now, except no Cabooses, BooHoo, I love my Caboose and I ain't giving it up, except for a few consists.......


    "Modelling the Kick & Push, one spike at a time"

    Someone in my family long ago drove a Police Squad car almost if not identical to that one.........Nope I didn't get a ride, but that was just a flashback of many yester year's ago....



    @ "The new 56 Cadillac Coupe de Ville has arrived. <kuid2:78865:69446:1> Thanks to author diecastgalore."


    I remember riding in what I think was light or Mint Green Cadillac, exactly like that with a relative, let me tell you this, two words about this and some cars similar...

    Built like a Tank ( You get hit, you'll sure as heck survive most of the time) or (you hit someone else with a lesser built Auto, well lets hope make it?)

    Comfortable as a luxurious Leather Chair for watching TV ( when you rode in this beautiful creature, let me say, there was never a feel of hard bumps in the Rode) I felt like it was built for the Monarchy it was so darn comfortable)



    My apologies for getting so long winded here, but you brought back some beautiful and cherished memories of over 60 yrs ago.......Thank you all talented Route enthusiasts!

    Me too, Blue. Same memories. Part of my enjoyment of modelling the 50’s era is finding assets that trigger memories and searching for assets from my memories. Sometimes items from the early 60’s will slip into my route because memories that far back lose their reference to a timeline. Wikipedia has proven me wrong on the timeframe of some of my recollections. That’s when I invoke the “my route, my rules” rule.

    Casey, you are a master in the scene composition of the life surrounding the railroad. You have all my congratulations! May I ask where is that flatcar coming from ?

    Thank you for the high marks. Glad you enjoy them. The car can be found on the DLS under "Bulkhead Flatcar GSI 45 Ft SP DES" <kuid:101046:106235> by Dave Snow. The half load of wood was made with a spline, "Cordwood Stack MBC232" <kuid:431633:100578> by Cayden. The half loaded car remains a static part of the scene while fully loaded cars are picked up as scheduled.

    cheers

    I've been there once by the tracks. Wasn't much trains running (before the virus came here in the States). Nice capture!

    A CN coal train prepares to hit the steep 2% grade between Robbins and Stormont on its way to the Odium Coal mine on the TRS19 edition of the Highland Valley.

    Lovely picture Jordon! Highland Valley is still an awesome route to drive on - I don't know why, it just has something to it that makes it special
    Love the TRS19 updated version!
