    Here is what I have gotten done over the last few days.The boxcars have painted trucks,axles,weights and frame while the covered hopper received painted trucks and axles.
    I been buying RTR cars the last 2-3 years and I had forgotten how much fun and relaxation there is in building these simple kits.:D

    My layout (long since dismantled) was a limestone quary. The weathering was simple - dust EVERYTHING with ground up chalk :)

    The new cars look good - the more time I spent at The Gauge the more I want to get to work on a new layout. My wife is going to hate you guys ;)

    Lookin' good Larry.It's amazing what even a little weathering does for realism.
