    Default Show your models!

    I thought we should have a thread to show any train models you want to. Can be your whole collection, something new, or your favorite.

    I'll start with a tank car I recently finished weathering. It's a Walthers car, done with chalks, oils, and acrylics, no airbrushing (it hadn't arrived yet.) Graffiti is done with an india ink marker. I replaced the couplers with Kadee SF shelf couplers with the trip pins removed. Eventually I'm converting all my HO stuff to Sergent couplers and semi-scale metal wheels and it'll look even better. This is the first car I've actually finished weathering.

    That looks as good as your digital models. What's with the blue on the end cap of the roller bearing? I see that on freight cars all the time. New wheel set or something?

    Default Latest aquisition



    My LGB Stainz Locomotive and Chiquita Bananen boxcar orphaned from a Train set that was issued in the 1970s and has long been discontinued.

    And yes its surrounded by a lot of dissected/otherwise HO stuff. I have HO trackage on the floor in two loops where I've been running my HO and On30 equipment.

    Carpet railways happen to be fun.
    And to think i'd never upgrade from 2006...

    Default Great Modeling!

    Wow! I could NOT tell that SimulatorTrain's model was not the prototype! If lginc's last 2 cars had been on a different background, I would have thought they were real, too. Great modeling, folks!

    Here some things I have done to modify the On30 4-6-0. I have had to redo the whole cab.....way tooooooo inacurate for the locomotive. The throttle was so far back on the back head, the engineer couldn't get to it, and a lot of other things were modifyed to make it more prototypical with a Baldwin 4-6-0
