Okay, this month seems to be including a loco. A mini theme... :)
Here is my first custom painted loco, a MTL GP35 with a few custom Uncle Will cylindrical hoppers. The silver with the red/white trim really makes these items stand out along with my custom printed decals.

This is a SeaRails Whalebelly propane tank car. I decorated it for the Strickland Propane Company from the animated TV program "King of the Hill"

I just completed the last of my coil cars. They are:

IHB Evans 100-Ton Coil Car – kit bashed using Ztrack coil car covers, a cut down Robert Ray 60’ Centerbeam Flat Car, decals from that kit and custom HARBOR decals from Dan Pikulski of Dan’s Resin Casting www.dansresincasting.com/Decals.htm

Reading 50' steel 15 panel fixed end gondola with low cover – kit bashed from a 50’ Marklin Reading gondola with the cover cut down to fit from the top of a Marklin 50’ Boxcar with the smallest HO scale eyebolts from Grandt Line #5085.

NYC 50' steel 15 panel fixed end gondola with curved cover – kit bashed from a 50’ Marklin NYC gondola with a curved cover cut down to fit from Stonebridge Models #6701.

I’m pretty pleased with how they turned out and now have three one of kind freight cars for my layout. I love coil cars, they are really neat looking freight cars that add uniqueness to a layout.

I know these are unique. I have the only passenger car and Jeffrey MacHan has the only other boxcar.
They were done for his Val Ease Central Railroad which won "Best of Show" at the 2001 NTS.

Last Ohio Locomotive crane to ever be printed from Shapeways since kit version was rejected by Shapeways. Blessing in disguise though. Notice how bowed and lopsided the boom is. Will be posting images of Ohio crane printed from new vendor soon.....

This is a set of hand-made spine cars that I bought at a Great American Train Show before any company was making them.

Fully functioning 250 ton Industrial Brownhoist crane. These cranes were not just used for wrecks but for bridge building and other MOW heavy lifting duties. They are self-propelled with mechanical drive (3 mph max speed) and there are still actually a handful of these in active service today, including some Bucyrus Erie 250 ton versions.

These 4 cars are actually 2. As they pass in and out of tunnels they present one and then the other side so it looks like two different trains.



It works good on figure 8.....
