Hi Ken  :wave:


I hope the Postman hasn't flooded you, with vintage items for servicing !  :java: :P  ;)

Your hopper cars are lookin' GREAT !!  :thumb:





Despite BASHin' a lot of my 'Tri-ang' HO into 1:35n2 narrow gauge ...  :mex:

... I do just LOVE the 'Tri-ang' North American vibe a lot as well.  :cool:


My modest stash of Canadian National HO is dear to me.  [whack]


This Canadian 'Tri-ang' Box art is totally ACE !  :)

No pickles on that freight though.  :f:



:moose:

Si.

The last 4 "non operating" R111s have been decked,  :glad:

with one minor setback, 1 broken support.  :bang:

However that will be soon corrected.


It is a great improvement over the original open frame.


Need to use Plastruck glue.

Styrene glue not much good with TRI-ANG plastic.


What I would like to see in my mail, is a set of plans dated "1895",

of standard plans (28 sheets) for the Kaslo & Slocan Railway, a 3 ft gauge line,

which operated in British Columbia from 1895 to 1910 more or less!.


[toast]

Si.

The HD flat is looking great.

Needs a bit of weathering.


Have a bunch of rolling stock to weather myself.

Need to reletter a few cars for the WP&Y Rly, my Northern Interchange Railway.


One car will be lettered for the "Great Northern Railway of Canada".

Which will be the real oddball on my Railway.  :)  :)

Hi    Ken  :wave:


Weathering ... Eh !  ;)


Perhaps not QUITE yet ...  :time:

... the Gallon of M.E.K. & parts still to be applied, don't like 'weathering' very much.  :td:





You're right about " HD flat " ... It's 1 of about 3 car builds, that I'd call 'Heavy Duty' ...  :mex:


Wolfie likes a good HD car !  :cool:  ... Always being careful to try & make 'scale' issues 'convincing' ...

... In relation to the railroads other contrasting  'medium'  &  'light'  duty car builds.  L:
