    Got my new camera today:mrgreen: I just took it out of the box and snapped these pics. This thing is awesome, it shows so much detail it is almost scary. :eek:

    Inter-modal business is picking up on RG&S, most of those containers are made of construction paper.

    Nice work everyone.
    Tom, I like the traction line next to the train line.
    Jeffrey, quiet peaceful park ... 5 yards away from the railroad track.
    Sarge_7, nice pictures from someone who just got his camera today.I wish I could have some intermodal business too on my ... 23" by 12" switching layout.

    Speaking about my switching layout, I finished the tunnel yesterday.

    Nice pictures ( again ) fellows.
    EngineerKyle, is it commercial trees or are they from real vegetals ?
    chessie4155, is it a low relief grain elevator or did you build the whole structure ?
    CNJ999, about your concrete road, what paint are you using. ? I painted a concrete road ( twice ! ) last week but the color is still too dark. Are you mixing your own concrete color ?
    jeffrey-wimberl, your night picture have improved. The lights in your structures used to be ( in my opinion ) too bright. It's look better now.

    Went down to my LHS to pick up some static grass, some extra Kadee couplers, and order a replacement handrail for my B23-7 from Bachman (their site keeps screwing up when I try to order from them with my computer for some reason) while I was out today picking up materials for my homemade static grass applicator. Well, there are always a few cheap junk cars at DCCTrain, and two found themselves in my shopping bag: a PC boxcar (old Athearn kit, discontinued years ago) and a Family Lines boxcar (I think an old Atlas, missing a coupler plate), both 50' and externaly almost identical, dispite both of them coming from two different companies. Here they are coming onto the Riverside Railroad being hauled by my B23-7:

    The Family Lines car has been disassembled completley and is awaiting cleaning.

    Those trees are made by me. Those particular ones are snipped from evergreen shrubberies. I let them dry out for a little while, then cluster them together until they look like a tree and tape the base for a trunk. Next I strap on the rubber gloves and give them a good soaking of hairspray and/or flat black spray paint. While the paint is wet, I roll them around in WS fine blended turf. My final touch is a dusting in florescent green spray paint on the tops.

    I like making trees.

    These seem to be bending and tumbling in the wind.
