    Thanks Ethan. I am thinking “Lee Walk” which was NNW of Weir (edit: or "Humble" which was south of Cherokee, West of Weir City).

    Maybe a scene like this one from Empire City:

  4. It’s almost Wednesday here in Ohio so here goes..
    All customer stuff this week. Got stuff finished for a couple people.
    The CSX SD50 was a P2K that had horrible factory paint. It was black. I repainted to a closer to correct blue.
    The 86’ cars are latest Tangent releases. Still campaigning for a Frisco release. Any one here can feel free to suggest it to David also. Wink.

  5. I also built up a couple old GHQ forklift kits for my main customer. A pain to build but painted up they look pretty convincing.

    Steve:

    The train stuff is excellent... but that fork lift. Wow... super nice. Is that HO?

  7. Thanks Andre. Yes those forklifts are HO. They are white metal kits with the ROPS which is a little photoetched brass sheet that needs folded up and attached. They are kind of a pain to build because they are from very old molds is my guess. But they include lots of spare parts at least.
    The Badger Modelflex Trailer Train color I had on hand seemed pretty close to the old Hyster yellow.
    Thanks again.

    Thanks for your input, Steve!

    Would that style of forklift be in use in 1964?

  9. It would be passable for sure Andre.

  11. No ROPS cages in the sixties - my engineering boss at Hyster was on the SAE ROPS committee in 1971. Gasoline or diesel power - now days most are propane.

  12. Yeah if these were for me instead of customer I had thought propane tanks would be neat to add.

    The ROPS with these kits is a newer addition to the kit than they had originally.
