    KP&W box cars are starting to show up on the car float at West Mill. That's the
    "Robert H.", otherwise known as "The Rust Bucket" shoving the float into the apron.

    Nazgul: Nice angle on that first shot, looks good.:thumb: Excellent scenery too:thumb:

    Ralph: Your KP&W fleet is really starting to expand, nice shot of the Docks and Tug:thumb:

    The first shot is a Conrail SD40-2 I found just setting under the over pass, I figured it was waiting on a crew. I went to get some lunch and took to long I guess because in the second pic all I was able to get was a going away shot of the caboose.

    I don’t have any special shots this weekend. I was too busy to set something up.

    I did make some trees as shown:

    Also here are some overall shots of the RK&M. This are in disarray as you can see. That happens when parts are under construction as the Drexel Ridge is. These are not the greatest since one of my overhead lights is on the fritz.

    The Water Tower Diorama is in the background here:

    Thanks for the compliments everyone!

    The worst part about it is I am expecting two more boxcar kits, one ACF covered hopper ( another pink Ralston-Jefferson), two Athearn TOFC kits, 2 more Walthers heavyweight passenger cars and a P2K sound B&O E8A/B. I am not sure if the pile can take it. Oh, I forgot there were two Athearn six-packs (LNE 2-bay hoppers, and MDT steel reefers) missing from the pile.


    When I started the layout rebuild I decided to make complete scenes or almost complete scenes. That way I would get a feeling I accomplished something and also have a place for photos. Some day the Great Pink Desert will be filled in.

    They are going on top of Drexel Ridge near the Grain Elevator. Some may go on the hillside by the Hunting cabin.
