Layout updates

Now that I am on Christmas vacation and doing my best to avoid cousin Eddie. I’m getting a little time to wrap up some projects.

I’ve added a 3rd 4-6-0 to the fleet and it’s starting to be lettered


Also I’m trying to finish up my curve through a cut.


I’ve also been working on my passenger fleet. The windows still remain to be installed.



I also got some decals on my boxcar 430 finally. It need some touch up paint and the truss rods installed and some weight to keep it on the track.



Hope y’all have Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Looks great, Tim! So few people seem to try to model number 9 for some reason.
Did you use ELO sandpaper to remove the existing road number? What decals did you use? What about the number plate?
The varnish looks great, love seeing correct ET&WNC passenger equipment...
Have a good Christmas vacation!

I bought a blank engine, only had red windows and white trim. Im using micro scale decals. The number plate I simply put a 9 in the middle and called it done. I didn’t want the aluminum painted plate. 

 

Another little project coming along will be my 2-8-0. Finally got the tender shell swapped out. It will probably be #6

Tim:
It looks like you are using a Broadway Limited C16? What tender shell are you using?
Following this conversion,  with interest.
