    Taking a little break from layout building today...
    I had some junkers laying around on the workbench, & thought I'd consolidate them into a single junker! :D

    The guys down at the shops threw this one together so the train crews could keep an eye on the rear end of those mine runs.

    I kinda stole this idea from Drew Toner...hope he doesn't mind!:eek: :D :p
    Still needs some lettering & details...

    Real nice.....I like the multi-tasking aspect of short line stock...often rolling stock must pull multiple duties

    Here is one on the BearCat RR...think I saw idea in an old NScale magazine...

    Charlie, Satokuma, these are super models. They lend a character that makes a good RR a GREAT RR. :D :D

    One of the pleasing things about model layouts is the little details that aren't normally found on layouts ... like these crummies, the stubborn mule, the bear looking for a bath, the bathing beauty on a fishing warf .... hehehe, even the occasional coyote. I love them all.

    You can tell I'm not an operations sort of guy, I go for the artistic stuff :) :D

    Well done friends!
