    Good steam engines

    PRR coaches can be found by Rapido Trains, they are not out yet...but man they should be the best passenger cars available once released! The only Mikado worth mentioning is made by Kato. Con-Cor makes a PRR Northern styled loco, and a PRR badged Santa-Fe 2-10-2. The Santa Fe requires quite...

    first attempt at weathering!

    This is the first time I tried to weather anything... and I over did it I think... What I did was dab my brush to grab a bit of of Trueline Warm Black, and then drenched the brush in dirty, dirty thinner. But before brushing it off on a towel or my painting board... I started to...

    n scale steam kitbashing - canadian locos

    christmas plans foiled!

    christmas plans foiled!

    Actually they always treat me very very well and I have never had a problem there. I think my wife must be cursed... she says she's not going in there anymore unless I'm there.
