Well I hope I don't scare anyone off (the few we have), but I am building a Bowser steam loco that I bought and started 10 years ago. This engine came with a semi vanderbilt tender, but I have substituted a Pennsy long hall tender. I have been attaching the detail parts that was sold as a separate package. Here are a few photos of the work in progress

Rick,
I love all the water scenes especially the lighthouse scene. Is that lighthouse scratch?
Trindude,
I love the trackwork crossover, is that hand laid? How did you do the wiring for diamonds.

Great shots guys!
Ralph

Rick Thanks for posting the Bar Mills layout. It is very nice as Ralph said. Lou I guess I need to take a ride to Worcester. Nice looking photos.
Traindude nice looking scene and truck. What is the orange thing at the left of the photo? DTI Nice work as usual
Well I thought Mr. Morin would post this picture, but time is up. Roland built this industry for the Providence Northern club layout and put it in its location last week. It must be cut in, but a great job and note the Roach Coach serving Ryans workers

Hi Ralph,
I wish I was that good to hand lay trackwork like that, HA! The crossover is a Walthers Shinohara product that has all the insulators in the right places. As long as all the turnouts are set to crossover there are no shorts and power is routed by the way the turnouts are set. Seems to work well for me. Thanks for your interest.

Hi Ray,
The orange thing is suppose to be what desertdrover's photos show, a Mi-Jack container crane. After seeing the real thing looks like I need to do some detailing though. Oh so many projects, so little time. Nice job on the loco, can't wait to see it painted up.

Real nice photos everyone.

Ray, the steamer looks great. I always wanted Bowser's Challenger but it was out of touch for me when I was new in the hobby. Lucky for me Lionel made their HO Challenger right after I got back in.

The High Rail truck is nice. Rick, great cars as always.

Here is the big lift at New Baltimore, Ohio at the new CSX intermod facility


Overall

Ray, sorry for the late post, airplane day.
As your picture failed (at least on my download) to display, here are a couple I took of the Ryan Iron build.

Sorry Ralph, I don't know.
If you e-mail Artie at Bar Mills he'll tell you.
I bet Karl (postalkarl) would know too.


As you think, so will you be.
