    (I gotta get a a camera with a decent macro feature-but this will do for now I guess) Here's some photos of D&H 164 (CP intermodal) entering Philadelphia from Montreal, behind 2 SD40-2's (one snoot), a former D&H GP38-2 in CP's new scheme, and an old SD40. Hopefully these will get better with time.

    Those are cool pictures:thumb: :thumb:

    The CP Rail train looks awsome.:thumb::thumb:

    Whats the green conveyor looking thing?? Is it a conveyor or a highway overpass?? O and what are the barriers made of over by the orange truck?? They look cool.

    Nice Progress!!! Keep it up.

    Thanks!!
    The green thing is a highway bridge over a river, prototypical color for the Walt Whitman bridge in Philadelphia, somewhat similar construction, but wrong place! The concrete barriers by the United Steel parking lot are made from plastruct T-beam I cut and painted. Here are a few more:

    T-BEAMS, HHHMMMM, I wonder If they would work in HO Scale?? Do they have bigger sizes of T-Beams??

    I have never looked for HO size but they do have larger ones so I would assume yes. I don't know how well they'd work--its so easy to pick up detail flaws in HO (why I am N scaler:thumb: :oops:
    here's a couple more of 164 and 1 shot of Pottstown Pennsylvania:

    Many thanks truck lover, haven't been at this stuff but a year or so, your comments are most appreciated. Getting ready to undertake a massive amount of backdrop work, thats just about whats left, but it is a HUGE part of this, I don't really wanna post photos in areas there is no backdrop up yet, but maybe I'll "catch" another train on the line this week:thumb:
    thanks again!

    Thanks! Still putting the finishing details together on the bridge, I'm trying to do highway signs and I'm going to do lane stripes also. Also doing backdrops for the river crossing, maybe some new shots this weekend!
