    Besides all the GREAT engines in the photos, I love all the other true-to-period details: Like the little wrecker and RPO car. And all the great freight cars in the background. There are a hundred Frisco modeling tips in these pictures! (Like the rolled up side curtains on the wrecker)

    PS: Ain't the 4402 BE-U-TEE-FULL!!

    Speaking of the neat little wreckers and wreckers in general, what are the spotting features of a steam wrecker that has been converted to diesel power? For instance what details would a modeler need to change to convert the Bachmann or Tichy wreckers from steam to diesel? I put this post near Don Wirth's Newburg scenes rather than have it buried in the modeling forums.

    Thanks, Tom

    Good looking Scullin drive wheel centers on the 4307 and 4402. Thanks for sharing, Don, and keep the cigars moving to the roundhouse foreman.

    Don--What kit (Or was it a scratch) did you use for your 60' RPO car (Behind little 1038)?

    Thanks, Tom G.

    Tom, I'm thinking it's a Walthers RTR. I'll look next time I go downstairs.

    Don, I think you are truly an artist and your work would not be out of place in a museum.

    Thanks for the compliments guys, but again, this is something any of you could do. It ain't rocket surgery, just takes patience.

    Those are great photos! I really enjoyed them.
  18. I actually have that quote up on the back bathroom wall! " don't blame me, I ain't no rocket surgeon!"

    I am glad you have faith in us. I might just have to see if I have some faith as wel, !
