It has been about four and a half years sine we have devoted a Photo Gallery to "rolling stock". I thought we could kick off 2012 by revisiting these cars that ride the rails of our layouts and dioramas.

Whether is is a weathered kit, a car built from scratch, or an interesting 'oddity', post the pictures here. A quick mention of the origins of the piece are always welcome. If you have a prototype picture that you've taken, it is also welcome.

I once again caution everyone to keep copyright issues in mind. If you didn't take the picture, it isn't yours to post. Links to photos on the web are allowed, however.

In consideration for those on dial-up, please keep your photos to 80KB or smaller.

For you mining enthusiasts, here is a neat car to build. It is from the Sterling Hill Mine in Franklin. The top of the car is really flat, the stuff you see there are other items of interest in the museum. In case you are interested, the wheel diameter is 12" and the rails are 2' apart.







Sorry about the big yellow pencil in this picture.

A small narrow gauge spreader I scratchbuilt from a drawing a very early (January 1976) Gazette:





Pulleys and other hardware were built from scratch mostly in brass. The blades can be folded up.

Here are some of my cars:

Weathered Branchline car in HO.

This one is a scratchbuild in brass, inspired by the shorty combine that John Allen made:

The chassis is from various bits in the parts drawer....

I like the wood load on the flatcar, that's something that's not modeled often enough. But to be a nit-picker: What would keep that load from shifting over either end of the car, particularly given a hard stop? Seems to me there should be some sort of bracing at the ends of the lumber stack. I've been thinking about lumber loads on flatcars, which is why I noticed this.

Tractors on a flatcar on the south siding in North Dover. This piece of rolling stock came to me from my good friend, Trevor Marshall.



This tankcar belonged to my late friend, Howard Scodras, so it is very dear to me. It is sitting on the north siding in North Dover on my B&M layout.



Another car from Howard's collection now residing on my layout. I love the look of coal loaded hoppers.

I haven't done much with rolling stock, but here is a pic of a Stoney Creek flatcar kit I built.

Throughout this Monthís thread, Iíll be posting pictures of rolling stock Iíve made for my military train. To start with, this was the first piece I made a year or so back of a helicopter. It is an Italeri 1:72 scale kit of an OH-13 Sioux helicopter. Mounted onto a Model power flatcar with Intermountain wheels and Kadee couplers.
The second picture is of an old Tyco Trailer truck that I painted OD Green and used a Micro Scale decal of the Army Trans Corp. Mounted onto an old Tyco Flatcar with Intermountain wheels and Kadee couplers. I also mounted a Johnny Lightning military vehicle from their Battle of the Bulge series.

I've built a few cars since June 2007.
This Sn3 flanger is a kit by Rio Grande Models. I had always been intimidated by the notice, but decided to make it for an RR-Line challenge, and I completed it in august 2007 (it was the time when I completed my challenge projects in time...)
