    Great pictures everyone.

    Trucklover - great weathering...you're getting better and better. I really like the work.

    Nazgul - that photo rocks!

    Deano - send a train show my way! Great buys.

    Here's my pic's for this week. Finally the A+B+A consist is complete for my Santa Fe PA1 units (thanks to the family for letting me get exactly what I wanted for my birthday). Now, if I only had a layout longer than mine is now to run the entire Super Chief on.:oops:

    And I promise I'll stop posting pictures of these PA units after this...y'all probably tired of seein 'em...that is until I get that D&H PA2 from Precision Craft.:thumb:

    Great photo's guys!! :thumb:
    Deano, I'm a huge fan of those cylindrical covered hoppers.
    Nazgul, your rocks look totally real!! Ralph - nice consist and I like what you did with the backdrop. Trucklover, that is some very realistic weathering, especially the paint chipping on the ribs. HercDriver, that second shot is really nice - i love the trackage!

    Steven, THANK YOU!:D

    Ralph, NICE SHOT!!!:thumb: i really like the new line you have, and those switchers really LOOK GREAT!:thumb: :thumb:

    Josh, NICE WEATHERING!:thumb: the UP covered hopper is my fav of the two;). hey, don't get to excited about a "roll by" yet, i have to weather those cars, finish detailing the SD60M out, and i am redoing my SD70M for the shoot;), might not happen till next week. i'm also kinda tore between which SD50 to put in it, not sure if i want to use the patched Rio Grande, or my standard UP SD50tooth1. THANKS!:D

    Mark, surely you have a pic or two that you haven't posted yet for this weeks contribution;):D.

    Herc, NICE SHOTS!!!:thumb: i for one, don't think i could ever get tired of seeing those AWESOME PA's on your layout!:thumb:

    Val, THANK YOU!:D i too, love those cyl hoppers:D. to be honest, that hopper was the ONLY DEAL, i DIDN'T get a deal on:(, but i liked it so much i just had to get it;):D.

    REAL NICE WORK FOLKS!:thumb: :D -Deano [​IMG] [​IMG]
