    Here are a few of my locos and rolling stock that I have weathered. Please share your experiences and critics.

    Welcome to the Gauge davidmbedard
    As you say we dial up users have to wait a while to see your fine photos. You may get more visits and comments if you make your photos smaller so they will load faster.
    You do great weathering and I really am pleased to see the caboose photos.
    What scale is your railroad?

    Hey David, I like the job you have done with the locos and rolling stock, it looks very realistic. Didn't that CP caboose number 4346049 get traded, sold or leased to another railway? Or is it just on another subdivision of CP now?!

    David;
    Nice job!!!! When I grow up I'd like to do as well!!

    Who made the CP yellow caboose? Where can I get one? This is a NEED & not a want. Gotta have one.

    I painted them myself. SD90. would like a few? That'll be 1,000,000.00 Canadian dollars, or 5 of your American Dollars.

    Caboose #4346049 was sold to the SD90 sub division a few weeks back. It seems that its in good hands.

    Cheers

    ...and here is an other canadian engine with "heavy" weathering, it is "to much" in my opinion but it is made with an airbrush and not that easy to remove... :(
    (what do you think... ?)

    That looks great. Perhaps we are a little to self critical.

    Did BCRail have uboats? I dunno

    steve - the BC rail unit looks great! I like heavily weathered units, of course with the black plague of Guilford, heavily weathered is all we see around here!

    nice work David!


    steve - more SLR pics coming, switched computers and have to get all my pics off the old hard drive!
