HI Ryan and all,
 No I  wasn't thinking of you or me in the comments ventured forth, just wanted to make myself clear that I didn't think it was helpful, besides when we really look at things, we still are grown people playing with toys, doesn't matter how you justify it.  Besides Ryan we both know as the dispatcher of the DRRR, I can make you wait a very long time in a siding.
 Like the pics, little bit of grime and gunk along the floor and hood would help, maybe even around the louvers or screens. 
OK, when will the rest submit forth, already found an idea from Ryan to copy, always looking for more ideas.

Well geez... I feel partly responsible for the direction this thread turned. Sorry about that Steve. I look forward to seeing more of your handy work in the future.

All is cool, no one needs to feel bad, I would rather hear what all think just in a nice way.  Besides just woke up from my afternoon nap, after doing the mowing for the day. I must always remember what rule 1 is from the house treasurer, if you want to play you got to work for the money.  Wait didn't Donna Summer sing about that?
If the weather isn't the best tomorrow it will be to the Empire I will go, and work on another structure, trying to finish up in the town of Tolchester, 90% finished and just a bit more to go.
BTW, Tolchester, along the banks of the Chesapeake Bay, during the 1900's to about 1950, give or take a few, was the site of an amusement park, the town had summer cottages and hotels and the folks from Baltimore would come over on the Bay Line boats for a day or week or summer.  There was also another one in Betterton which was much bigger, that was just up the Bay a few miles.  I think you might be able to find something under Goggle or other search engines, also possibly Baltimore County Public Library.  Then during the 50's Tolchester became the site for a set of Nike missile batteries and now is the 4H fair grounds.  Betterton has lost it's glory and is now just a sleepy little town, same for Tolchester.
OK, got to start a roast for tonight, heading to Rock Hall and the Mainstay for a night of bluegrass music, also look both of those places up.  There is a reason this is called the "Land of Pleasant Living".

Ryan-
I like the plow! Did you copy the side bracing from a proto pix?  Reason that I ask is that I would have put the diagonals on slanted the other way--to better transfer thrust from the top of the plow to the frame. It certainly looks like it has survived a couple winters, and shows no evidence of racking--so I guess that it is strong enough.

Steve-

Celtic
Bluegrass
Classical from before 1900
Victor Herbert--and not just 'cause of the name
Marches from operas

That's it. no others need apply

Friday is salad and cheese steak sandwich (sammish) night. Keys are gettin wet from slobber.


Herb-- who detests the area he lives in.

Herb and all,
 I seem to be writing more on this group in a few days then I ever did on any of the Yahoo groups in 10 years, that isn't good.  I always felt better to be thought the fool then open my mouth and take away all doubt.
So where is Glen Mills?  I know Glen Rock and some other out of the way places.
Waiting for the storms and getting ready to eat the roast I made, the Treasurer is happy.

I fell in love with the this beauty and thought for a brief moment that a snow scene would be awesome to model than reality set in.  But my plow is ready!!!

Just finished looking at three houses to buy this afternoon, no luck though no suitable rooms for my mega planned layout..But three more tomorrow...  Now beer and ribs.

Ryan

I hope non-finished engines are OK? I started these several years ago when I had gotten on to On762 (mm). That's On2 1/2 or On30 for those of you in Rio Linda. I guess you call it metric gauge. :Crazy: ;) 

Anyway. I scratch built this shell that fit's on a dual motor Bachman 44 tonner.







After having visited Nigel Lawtons site were I discovered friction drives I decided on building a brass critter based on a prototype I saw pictures of on the internet.







Here's the prototype hauling a side dump coke car.



I probably should finish these some day.

HI,
  Now would be a great time, pretty neat.  I have some diesels to finish up but going to R/C battery, due to my friend Steve Sherrill the WVA Rail Baron, heavy involvement with it.  really like what you are doing.
Steve
