    The log dump

    Hi guys, That is beautiful work. I don't know if you were aware that Shamus died just recently. Here's a thread with information. We're fortunate that he shared his modeling so generously. Ralph

    Rolling stock update (with LOTS of BIG pictures)...

    VERY nice collection Wayne! I think that Bowser Pennsy hopper is my favorite. The weathering is subtle but so effective. Ralph

    Photography Game?

    How about that! Cool detail. I do remember putting a piece of cardboard in front of the grill of my old Chryler NewYorker in the aircraft carrier of a car that I bought used in 1981. :) Thanks for the info Charlie! Ralph

    Lehigh Valley & Keystone Model RR club pics
