Alright fellow modelers and photo enthusiasts, it is March 1st, and time for a new theme for the Gallery.

Now I know that there are those among us who long for the aroma of those resin castings, get their kicks from cleaning flash off of white metal barrels, and search the Internet for yet another source of that hard-to-find detail item. So, let us spend the month sharing pictures that show off all those wonderful details in settings on the the diorama or layout.

For those who like to detail their rolling stock and locomotives, feel free to join right in. If you have a prototype picture that shows a great collection of clutter around a shed, yard, or depot, feel free to post that also. It might help one of our members get a great modeling idea. If you know the source of the detail items you are highlighting, tell us. You know members will wonder where you got that casting of the old fashioned pump, toilet, or washing machine.

As always, please adhere to the following posting requirements: photo files should be no more than 80kb @ 72ppi in size - even if downloading from a remote server or website - and can be no more than 7 inches in width (to prevent viewers from having to scroll back and forth to see the entire photo or read text on the same page).

Photo submissions not meeting the above requirements will be resized by the Moderator.

So, let the posting begin. This month's Gallery could become a great modeling resource for members well into the future.

OK I guess I'll fire the first salvo this month. These are a couple of quick ones from the IHC Lehigh & New England 0-8-0 switcher I worked on a few months back. A few details I added was changing the number from 135 to 132 using Walthers decals for a LNE steam locomotive. I also added an engineer and fireman. Both are from Woodland Scenics Engineers. I added a shovel from Scale Structures. The coal that was added to the tender is from Woodland Scenics. Almost forgot the window glazing is clear styrene from Evergreen Scale Models.

Neat, Tom. I always enjoy seeing how you paint, weather, letter, and detail your various locos.

----------------------------------

Here is the top of the fuel bunker of my CM&S Shay. It looked like a good spot to mount a water pump, hose, and reel, as well as some other junk. I built this several years ago from a 1984 vintage MDC 2-truck Shay kit, and I honestly do not remember who made the detail parts I added. I think it's likely, however, that the chain is from Builders in Scale. And I do know that the water puddle is actually a small puddle of ACC that I placed at the end of the hose and let dry.

Here's a quickie: a tight shot of the loading dock at the Bicktul Company in LaPointe, on my layout.

Pallets are, I believe, AM Models and drums could be anybody's...

Tom, Mike & Gerry, great shots. That is just what I had in mind! Gerry, I know what you mean about the drums. With the exception of those by Campbell, I would have trouble identifying the source of mine

Your details for the shay look awesome. I would have never thought to use ACC that way.

Gerry
Incredible looking loading dock!

Ken,
Nice scene. What did you use to make the pipes?

The junk pile in the rear is a Sylvan Scale Models resin casting. I think that the 55 gal. drum is from Campbell, the wooden barrel is a dental stone casting from MicroScale Models, and the cinder blocks are from F&C.
