This week I thought I'd feature this Athearn FMC boxcar that I've had for a few years, Moscow, Camden and San Augustine is an almost 7 mile long line running from Camden to Moscow, Texas where it interchanges with Union Pacific. It's owned by Georgia-Pacific, so hauls plywood and other lumber-type products.
I didn't know any of that when I bought the boxcar. Truth is, I just thought the orange colour would stand out a little bit on the layout, and I liked the name. Very few pictures of these particular cars on my usual internet reference sites, so I had to "wing it" for the weathering.
Have a look at MCSA 6079...
Changing gears now to different item, below is a link to video of the very nice looking layout of the Tri-State Model Railroaders in Mineral Bluff, Georgia. This was posted to YouTube by Thomas Klimoski.
Hey Jimmer, I've been checking your site for quite some time. I really like the weekly updates, and now that I've taken the leap to sign in with google/blogger, hopefully you'll be seeing more from me. The gas station build and scrap yard are pretty cool too. What's even more ironic, I have proto pics (SQVR 345) of your #813 and hope to someday replicate it. I even bough the extended/dual cab from Shapeways. TerryReplyDelete
Thanks Terry for looking in here. As soon as I saw pictures of SQVR 345 I knew what I was going to do with the undecorated GP38 I had.Delete
Nice work as always and I'd quit paying for Trainorders if I were you. I gave it up years ago and do not miss anything...you know what I'm talking about...ReplyDelete
Thanks Dave. It's a possibility.ReplyDelete
