    Track power, my Railpower1370 DC controler is just beyond the bottom edge of the pic.

    Tom, sleekjr, chessie, that boxcar is my very first attempt at weathering, so it's great to see positive remarks on it:mrgreen::thumb: It's one of the 'Walther's Classic Kit' line, an FGE insulated boxcar.

    I was looking through railpictures.net when I found what apears to be one of the last services of a certain engine's original employment:

    Tom, Charlie, Mark, Gary...Thank you for the nice comments!:thumb:

    Mark...The layout is just taking up too much of the family room in the basement so....I decided to dismantle it. The family was fine with it but I didn't think it was fair to hog so much of the usable space. I am planning on changing to a shelf layout as soon as possible.:winker:

    Here's a shot of the "town" I never got a chance to finish:cry:

    Here's a view of the guardrails in use on a skewed deck girder bridge over Valley Inn Road, near Bayview Junction, Burlington, Ontario.

    The "junk" piled at right appears to be the remnants of a rubberised level crossing. Here are a couple more pictures:

    Hey guys, not much new from me lately, that cold/flu really beat me down. wall1

    Here's some shots of my new GHQ equipment, pre-painting. If you look close, you'll see one material handler is not done, it was missing parts. I'm waiting on a reply from GHQ.

    MGRy (Midland Gulf Railway) 422 is almost finished. There are only a few details left to be added. Here it's pulling a mixed freight.

    Jesso, I ran the loco at the LHS on their loop track. Ran pretty well. I don't have any really track in place on my layout yet to test it their though.

    Also, I haven't DCC'd yet. It will eventually though.

    I'm almost finished with the locomotives for the Midland Gulf Railway. Here they are, pretty much as they sit at the moment.

    Here you can see the PA2 and the GP50 and just to the right of the shed you can see the front of the F7-A.

    In this shot you can see the SD9.

    And here is the GP38-2, beat up and showing it's age.

    Nice (and prototypical) use of the B-unit. I like that ladder that you've added on the end, too.
