    We went down to the station and stood on the trolley bridge and took these of a passing freight.

    Nice weathering job(s).

    BTW, is that station scratch? That's about the right size and and has the right lines for the shelf layout I'm building.

    Nice modeling, for sure.

    Great stuff Tom, like the weathering, especially that rusted gondola:thumb::thumb:. Any one of these would be fitting for the current photo contest. Remember, you can enter up to two pictures in this "double-double" contest...:wave::wave:

    (Yeah Mikey, yet another shameless plug):D

    Thanks everyone!

    The station is a Model Power kit. You can see how I alter it in the post about the Passenger Station Diorama at : http://www.the-gauge.com/thread9985-.html

    Photo contest? What photo contest? How did I miss that? :confused: Probably the fact that I can't spend a lot time here and fly through too fast. :curse:

    Thanks and I'll look into it. :thumb:

    That's because you are modeling.:D

    The station sure had me fooled. Amazing what some weathering can do for a plastic kit. Nice job. I'll have to look for one on ebay. Thanks.

    :thumb: Great job there Tom and a great viewing spot. I have gone to places like that and stood for what seemed like hours and saw no trains. And then walk all the way back to the car, start the engine and drive away only to hear a lonesome horn blowing from a long drag. Dosn't that just chap you butt? :curse: Jim

    Thanks everyone!

    After we finished taking our rail fan pictures we were startled by an approaching trolley. Luckily we were able to step aside.

    Keep off the tracks man. Don't give the poor trolley driver a heart attack. Another neat one Tom
