Thanks for the kind words, Greg
this is O scale, On30 for the boxcar, to be exact
I should change those passenger car trucks, for something more realistic, and add link/ pin couplers

The boxcar is very nice, Alex. I don't know what scale the tank is, but I think that it might fit quite well your Arizona desert mining diorama project.

One more of the boxcar

Frederic: the Tank is also O scale, but I dont think it is Diorama worthy. Ill let it sit in loneliness

And thanks everyone for all the kind words

Alex

Here are some pics of my last On30 bridge. All wood is hand cut from 2x4 redwood. This one was only lightly weathered. Built similar to Rio Grande Southern bridges, this one had some minor changes and was compressed. The "iron" parts on the roadbed are hangers for the "floating" ties. While the other ties sat on the truss, these floaters were suspended by straps of iron and anchored to the other ties.

No, That's not a mistake. I did that to give it some extra character. I'm glad you noticed! -Mike@mikesjustbridges.com

In these trying times we currently live in, with tough economies all over. I believe a time honored profession such as this is a can't fail business opportunity!

All joking aside, great building! Add a couple of red lanterns in the windows and put it in a rough neighborhood.

The oldest job in the world, as they say in France... Nice building, Alain.
Mike, your bridge is looking great!

MAN!!! Talk about MUSEUM-QUALITY MODELS!!! As I've basically always been a "shake-the-box" plastic kit guy, I have to say that these fine models displayed here are FAR BEYOND exceptional!!!

These outstanding minatures truly relect the fine and exceptional talents of the individuals who have worked so long and diligently on them!! EXCELLENT work, my friends!! If I were an NMRA judge, you'd ALL be taking home a FIRST prize!! John

For some reason, Iíve missed these new additions.

Nice work, Dave. Are those windows scratchbuilt too?

Your boxcar has nice crisp details, Chris. I notice the little sections of roof walk from the ladder to the main roof walk are missing. Any idea why that was done?

George,
The windows are from Rusty Stumps. He made them just for this build and then added them to his line of products in O, HO and S. Three different sizes and can be assembled (a bit of work) open or closed.
Doors are also RSSM as are shingles.
