    (I think I'd pay some serious coin to have my diesels photo'd on the good doctor's layout.)

    The pictures are always and I mean always a treat. That steamer looks great! I like the slight out of focus movement of the wheel action. Just great!

    Killer shot!!! Great picture. Great picture. The lighting is great, everything is even and well lit.

    Hey - don't give me any ideas about diverting into a local airport near you guys...ya just never know when an "inflight emergency" might pop up - and hey - you gotta put it on the ground for safety's sake...and that's my story and I'm stickin' to it.

    CN,
    I would have to say that you and the good Doc are among a very few who show us the best of model RR'ing on this forum (and probably all others as well...). Not to discredit anyone else who do excellently good work, but...

    Congratulations...!!! :thumb:

    cn, very beautiful engines. And your photos are top notch, as usual.

    A question to Wayne: I admire your telephone poles. Can you tell me, who makes them, please? (cn, I hope you don’t mind me hijacking your thread.)

    First off, let me add my thanks to all for the kind comments. Nutbar, I particularily like the photo of the 5702 on the turntable: I think that I may have touched on this in another post, but that loco is the first that I painted for my friend, and is the vehicle through which we met. I got the job to paint this loco through a LHS, but when I got it home, I discovered that it had been damaged in shipping. In addition to that, it would barely run. Luckily, in the box was nutbar's name and 'phone number, so I decided to contact him directly, to let him know about the problems and that the price would probably be a bit higher than whatever he had originally been quoted. (I later learned that the LHS normally doubled whatever I charged for my work: I don't know if this was pretty much standard practice, or if I was charging too little, or if the hobby shop was charging too much.) Anyway, as they say, the rest is history.
    Kurt, the telephone/telegraph poles are Atlas poles. They got a wash of PollyScale to kill the plastic shine, and the crossarm braces were painted dark grey. I then used a metallic green paint for the insulators; the idea came from a tip in MR or RMC, and the recommended paint was from either Testors or Pactra. Surprisingly, neither was available at my usually-well-stocked LHS. What they did have was a paint from Gunze Sangyo called Aqueous Hobby Color (it may be intended for either the model car or model 'plane hobby). The colour is Metallic Green H89, and I applied it with a brush.
    Gus, the turntable was built using the sides from a couple of Atlas through-girder bridges, which were glued to a block of wood. I put a piece of flex track on top, with the webs connecting the ties removed. I then spaced out the plastic ties enough to insert longer ones cut from stripwood, and added the decking. The control cabin is scratchbuilt from styrene, and the handrails are made from .015" piano wire, with Athearn diesel handrail stanchions, modified with a bit of brass tubing, holding them in place. I still need to add a power arch. There is a little more on it here:

    If you scroll down a bit, there's one photo, then a few more a little farther down, plus a brief explanation.

    Just a little historical background on the 6060. She was the first loco of the final class of [​IMG]

    steam locos built for the CNR, and is still running today, in Alberta. During the mid-1970s, she was used for summer fan trips on the CNR mainline running through the Niagara Peninsula, and during the week, she substituted for the normal RDCs on the daily passenger run. By that time, she had been converted to burn oil.

    Wayne, I just painted my Rix telephone poles. I used metallic green on the isolators – looks great. Thank you :wave: :wave:

    I had forgotten about the Rix poles, Kurt. I have some of their regular ones, but they also made crossarms cast in clear green plastic. The idea is that you paint the crossarms a suitable wood colour, and leave the insulators clear. I have a package of them that I've not yet used: I was saving them for the upper level of the layout. I don't see them at the hobbyshop anymore, but I'm sure that they must still be available. The Rix stock number is 628-35, which gives you 36 clear green tint plastic crossarms. You can buy the poles separately, or make your own. I've read somewhere that the Atlas poles more closely ressemble power poles, which would explain why they give you transformers with them. :rolleyes: :D :D

    Wayne, I bought my regular Rix poles quite a while ago. You are right, the clear green cross arms would be great to model glass insulators. But I think, the metallic green color is a very good substitute for clear isolators. :wave:
