My SO took this photo of the SAL Calypso as it emerged from under the Bluewater Bridges on it's way to Bay City, Michigan.
SAL Calypso with a load of wind turbine blades. Linda Stamos photo.
Maybe half a mile or so out into Lake Huron, there's the Calypso on the right passing by the barge Ashtabula, coming in from the lake, downbound on the left.
A closer look at 610 foot long Ashtabula, which is being pushed by the tug Defiance
And now back to the regular model train-type stuff, with just a few random shots from around the layout...
GT 6210 & 6212 bringing a gondola into the Iron & Metal recycler yard.
I kind of like this view of GP38 #815 idling in the JSSX yard
DTI boxcar 26035 is one of my favourites
Slightly faded and lightly weathered, this WC covered hopper done for Jamie Barron looks pretty good on the street trackage
This waffle sided boxcar, which also belongs to Jamie. features light rusting along the roof.
And I got a bit of a start on modifications to this 86 foot auto parts boxcar this week. However, progress might slow for a while though, as I realized that I don't have enough styrene "Angle" for use as the upper door tracks.
