Prototype WW&F Railway Museum has a forum which I, of course, find quite interesting. One form member found this unusual (to say the least!) critter and posted pictures.

Makes some of my early ideas look rather tame!!:glad:

Some time back I contacted the WW&F Museum for paint color information. I then had some samples mixed and now I've finally gotten around to applying some paint to see how it will look.

What is different about my situation is we have a lot of shade where the prototype does not. I may need to lighten the dark green a little... or maybe not. Hence, this test.

In winter, we won't have all this shade and the dark green will lighten some over time.

Thanks Ray!

A few days back a good friend brought his 7 year old grandson by to see the railroad. Turned out, this young man has a real knack for things mechanical and soon he was running the number 11 like a pro.
It was a real treat to see our engine being run by a "scale sized" crew.

Bob, Hope all is well. Have enjoyed reading and watching what you do on your railroad there...can't wait to see what you are working on or have worked on.

The colors look correct to me and I've been there in person. They do have shade in some places.

Thanks to all for the kind words!
Bountyland Railway is alive and well as am I however of late building progress has been slowed (stopped!) by bad weather and more-so by a lack of capitol. Insted I've been painting. You know-the ART kind. Attached is a link of one you will find here on my GALLERY page.

Meantime, we RUN for guests and often just for fun.

I hope normal construction can resume before too long and I'll keep you posted.
Bob

Bob, Good to hear, and I can completely relate...mine has been held up for travel for work, lack of funds, and weather when I have been here...but I've finally gotten some more gravel and have been working on roadbed but going is very slow.

BTW, good looking painting.

Dave
