It has been a little over two years since we have devoted a Photo Gallery to the rolling stock that is so central to our hobby.

Here is the opportunity to share pictures of your favorite cars, prototype or model. If you have been busy weathering or scratchbuilding rolling stock, this is also a great opportunity to share your work with your fellow modelers, so post away!

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). This can also be achieved by sizing your picture so the width is in the 680-720 pixel range.

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

Well, I guess I'll start off this month's gallery with a few photos.

First, here is a logging flatcar that I made for last year's interchange. This car traveled all across the U.S., and was last seen somewhere in Canada.



In this photo, engine number 45 switches out a string of cabeese for the D&B Lumber Company.



This promises to be another great month of photos, Bruce. Excellent choice!

This little car was made by a friend of mine, Bob Alt, after I showed him some photos of Train Clown's backwoods trailer.

Bob decided to do one in HO scale. This car is a little over an inch long!

For those of you that know me from the "other" forum you will know that this is one of my favorite subjects. This is IMO one of the very best ways to get kids involved in the hobby and a great way to spend some quality time with the young ones in our lives.



My youngest boy Christopher weathered this box car, he is 7. There is nothing I enjoy more than taking my boys to the LHS to pick up an Athearn BB kit. Even younger kids with some help can get these simple kits assembled. Then we hit the web and look for prototype examples to copy the weathering. Ink-wash, paints, weathering powders and some patience and guidance lead to an hour of two of modelling pleasure, and I hope a lifetime of memories. One-by-one my nephews and nieces are making their own personal car to run on my layout. Just looking at the pride on their young faces as they run a train with "their" freight car is priceless.

Here is one from my 12 year old niece who visited from the UK over Christmas.



This does not cost a lot to do but has great rewards. Who knows it might even spark a future modellers interest?

Here is an On3 freelanced model based on a Michigan-California Lumber Co. prototype water car.







Not a great runner due to the dragging brake shoes, but then I don't have any track to run her on yet!

Hello Gent's

Good Idea for this month's gallery, how about next month we do one for Locomotives as well.

I have to many to post here so I'll leave a link to my Rolling stock gallery on my web site instead.

Here are a few photos:

Here are two tool or work cabooses that I scratchbuilt a few years back. The first one is HOn3, the second one is HO standard gauge. Both are lettered for the Osage Valley Tie & Lumber Co.

Wow! I open the thread, go out to wash the truck, and there are 17 pictures posted already.

Let's hope the trend continues!

While not an up-to-date model by any means (its over 50 years old), I'll offer up a photo of one of my very favorite pieces of vintage rolling stock. It's a Mathieson Dry Ice Reefer, orginally issued as a kit by Laconia Models around the time of WWII. Being unique, as well as prototypically authentic for the era my layout is set in, I think it's worthy of spotlighting in this thread.
