A prototype photo of a shorty! tank car, 4 wheel 3 foot gauge,
which was used in house for storage of Agua Cromada (aka anti freeze)
when the MLW locomotives were being worked on.
 
In service on the FCH&H in Peru.

:) :) :)

As I will be presenting a clinic at the convention,

models for it have to take first place,

along with a couple of others if I have room :)

at least my Rotary and Wedge plows for a start.


If room is left over the Tanque Charuto could make it,

along with a least one heavy duty flat car.

As it is slightly cool? here at -33C,

figured I would stay inside and work on a set of plans for the Power Plant,

just in case someone may like a set  L:

Ken,

It's forecast +32 here, so I might put chains on some horses. (O scale).

Hi    Ken  :wave:



It's nearly that time again ...  :time:





... to hop off to the convention ...





I hope you've got all your models sorted out Ken  :pimp:  ... & the glue is all set !  ;)




Watch out for critters on the way from the airport !  :old dude:



Will there be room for "Tanque Charuto" to be loaded onto the Air Canada ?  ???



:mex:

Did not pack Tanque Charuto along on the trip.

However my Rotary Snowplow won third,
in MOW and Rolling stock, by popular vote.

Need less to say this resulted in yet another addition of motive power,
a Victorian Railways OF 2-6-2T.

Need to get serious and get my layout rebuilt!


:bang: :bang: :bang:

Had to get one.
Looked for one in Canadian Red scheme but no luck, settled for an "all black".

Have 4 Australian freight cars and 3 Red Stag log cars for it to haul.
Along with the Coffee Pot, I picked up last trip DU.

May make a few cosmetic changes to the engine,
headlights most likely, not sure just yet.


Have a few thoughts for a diorama kicking around in my head,
more TAS related then Victorian Railways.

Trying to work in an aerial tram line, railway,
and backdrop from the Roseberry area of Tas.
 
Not likely to be ready for display at the local fall meet here in Calgary,
but I always try to surprise the folks that get to it.


I admire the work you did on your wireless layout.
I have enough trouble with 110/220 wiring to even think about RC on an engine.


Took the convention booklet to our local ROEMO lunch (retired old men eating out).
They could not believe that the booklet was made up for the convention,
may have stirred the pot for future ideas with meets here in Calgary.
