    Les, if you want the picture to show up here as a photo, rather than a link, simply "copy" the "img" line of info, either in photobucket or the Gallery, then "paste" it here.

    Here are a few of mine, all Athearn except for the CNR van, which is from Sylvan.. Surprising to me, no photo of EG&E 353. EG&E 354 is assigned to cn nutbar's layout, and EG&E extended-vision cabooses 360 and 361 were repainted as TH&B cabooses and sold, along with sister 362, which remained in EG&E paint. Also sold, as too modern for my '30s-era layout, Grand Valley 375,-6,-7,-8, all modernised versions of the Grand Valley cabooses shown.

    Beautiful collection Wayne!!!

    As I mentioned above, all of those bay wondow cabins folks were showing off made me envious so I converted my backroom hobby shop special into KP&W colors. I'm still pondering a logo of some sort to go with the scheme. The blank wall on the cabin's right side needs something...

    Dear Wayne, once again you amaze me. What great modeling, and what a great story line to go with it.
    Here is one that would be a good one for a caboose modeler. No bay, No cupola either. Chicago, 1981

    I got the FRED(Flashing Rear End Device) when I took a visit to Radio Shack. It was less than $4. it runs on 2 AA batteries and fits perfectly in my boxcar with the doors that dont open. I have the light stick out and don't glue/tape down for changing to other cars.

    I only have 2, one in each scale. I love how the N scale one is more detailed and actually has windows and not just holes.

    Here's a few I've put together.
    The BN caboose started out as a cheap trainset Bachmann.
    The P&LE Bobber started out as a Play-Art (Model Power?)
    The CP is a Silver streak kit.
    The PRR cabin car is a kit-bash using 2 Tyco cabooses.
    The last is an N scale Rapido caboose I repainted.
