  1. Those look great Bob.
  2. Mine this week. I got white on this a while ago. Finally got around to masking it and getting the paint done. Started decals last night. Should be done by the weekend I hope.

    Thanks Steve. I saw your work featured by Tangent this week. Great stuff!

    I saw today that the St. Louis RPM is on. Planning to attend anyone ?
  4. Thanks Bob, that Tangent car was pretty mild but I guess Dave liked it.

    RPM is still on so far. I will be there. Hope more guys will too.

    Liked those old Moby Dick's.

    I reckon those brass models of them are worth a fortune now?
  9. Hahahahhaaaa thanks Bob! Yeah all the groupies are a hassle sometimes. :)

  10. Yes Andre. A fortune and impossible to find. I have overpaid for a couple but would over pay again in a second for one more to complete the series.

    I keep hoping someday a modern release of them will be made. But instead we get more SD40-2s it seems.

    Not Wednesday, but just installed a Railpro locomotive module in the GP38-2 I purchased from K. Wulfert, that caboose too btw.

  12. Cool stuff Craig. I love the rail pro idea. I’d like to see some in HO projects in person. Kevin Packard is the only other HO rail pro user I know. I have seen some large scale but it’s pretty easy to fit with 1/39tj scale equipment. Keep us posted on how you like it.

    That is just some outstanding work there Bob! I think I could find a building or two to kick off my MRR if you ever wanted to part with it. But really, that it some nice work there.

    Probably would, but I drove it 5 yrs and gave it back to my father. He's enjoying it now. Most recent picture.

  20. Good move. Still looks good
