    After looking at another forum I am thinking we need a venue to show random shots from our respective layouts, clubs, test track, work bench or what have you. Frisco or any of it predecessors, locos, cars, buildings, vehicles, run thru power, scenery or not, what ever, as long as it has a Frisco based theme, based on the past present or future, should be OK. Scenery or not, a 36" circle is all good or a 6" test track or club layout is good too. The point is, lets see your stuff, let folks enjoy your efforts, it has been my experience that you are generally better than you give yourself credit.
    Here we go!

    Ken Wulfert will recognize this Frisco NW2 loco spotting up this boxcar and pulling some scrap loads. Thanks Ken, I really enjoy this Brass loco from you.

    That is SO cool. That scrap metal pile and chain link fence looks absolutely real as well as all the weathering. A+

    When I first opened this thread I briefly thought the thumbnails were prototype shots -- despite the subject title! I briefly thought they were "prototype inspiration". Only when I viewed the full sized images did I see that they were really models.

    Great work Tom!

    I think that's a great idea. I get much enjoyment out of railfaning the Avard Sub and like to share the fruits of my labor. I'm all in.

    Tom - Glad to see the old girl still has steady employment! We talked once about repowering it, did you do that yet or is it still powered by the stock motor?

    That is a nice scene. Very realistic. Guess you know, that Gondola is going to need to stay on line, greed does it. Overloaded ! I see a big car hire bill coming. Foreign road, get out your pocket book.William Jackson

    I agree. You've got it down pat. Scenery, track work, weathering, bridge. It's all there and well photographed as well. All these pics are good. Lets see some from our reluctant members.

    First revenue run over the new main from Poteau, OK to Fort Smith was made Saturday by none other than Rick McClellan. We see it leaving south staging (Poteau-Paris) then entering Fort Smith from the south, then just past SF Junction. Bob Thompson prepares the yard for its arrival, with Jim Senese in the background. Great to have this many Frisco folks on hand for a day's work on the Central Divisions.

    This some great stuff guys, it is always good to see people from the Frisco Nation enjoying the fruits of their labor.

    We have a bunch of very good modelers and builders on this site.

    And yes Sir William that flat bottom Gondola maybe overloaded, but maybe some metal will fall off enroute or hit a High/Wide or drag detector huh?

    Please keep the pictures coming thanks to all for posting.

    Is that Homasote you laying track on there? We can hardly find it here in 4X8 sheets, did you get it at home Despot or Lowe's?

    Nice, Bill. I like the scenery, backdrop and the lighted signals. Good job.

    Steve, it looks as though you could keep a full crew busy on your layout. Big time model railroading. Must be a fortune in track alone. I like the sky blue walls.

    Here's 1060 simmering at our version of Tower 21 waiting on the MKT passenger train. We were having an operation meet that day and the passenger train was, of course, late. Maybe if the "Meteor" was running instead of the "Flyer" we'd have been on time. |-|:D

    Here is one more, hope this is ok with the thread, but I have been somewhat stumped for a while on the best way to make a road on here. I put two cars so you can see the road. It is 1/4 foam board and curves around behind the hill in the back. I plan to cross just past the diamond into town by the gas station.

    Looks like you have been busy Bill it looks great! I have some signaling coming but am kind of intimidated to start it. Need a signal maintainer to get me going.

    That is a great scene there, I spend a lot of time waiting on that miserable passenger thing myself, (not a Frisco passenger train for sure) it wouldn't be so bad if a little dispatching was going on for us though.
