    Today I've been working on the loco that came with my new Athearn set. It's been repainted but hasn't been decaled and weathered yet.

    And I know someone here was wondering how the water tower would turn out. I trust this meets with your expectations.

    Litchfield Hills Roll-By

    Nice pics this week guys.

    Well, I caught the Litchfield Hills Sunday commuter run today. Its a short consist. Which was fine with me because a storm was quickly approaching.

    First: Athearn Bombadier Double Deck Cab Car(I was doing this one at the same time as my Bicycle car. The name Torrington is my hometown.)
    Next came a Walthers Horizon commuter car.(Painted and decaled a couple of months before Walthers released them in CDOT).
    Then my bicycle car.(Athearn BB model)
    And finally, Athearn P32AC Genesis(Rumor has it that this will be replaced with a F59PHI on the Litchfield Hills in a couple of months)

    Nice train set! Might I suggest some air vents on that boxcar so it does not get hot during the summer?

    That's great Charlie! Nice catch! Sure is a lot easier to do that with models! :) I'm with puddlejumper in my appreciation of the three roads in your photo.
