Jim, that flat car is a real eye opener as to what you can do with a 3-D Printer!

Norman, that type of modeling is so far our of my wheel house that I am in awe of what you are doing.

Dave, I like how that deck looks. I'm a fan of using old railroad ties for 'foundations'.

Outstanding imagineering, Greg!

I got the loading dock attached to the rear of my boxcar shell. I am now working on the roof support and roof to cover the dock.

All my 1:29 structures are on shelves awaiting the sell of our home and a new basement. The 1:48 scale go to my son and someday I will get photos of his layout. (he live a 1000 miles away.)

Thanks! Dave.
Most of my stuff, is waiting for a new home and a basement as well.
So I know how frustrating that is.
Best of luck with finding a new place for your new 1:29 scale layout, with a house attached to it.
And I remember now, about you building stuff for your son's layout.
Sorry you guys live so far apart from each other, to bad those aren't scale miles.

Greg, that whole shoe project is just super cool! Taking the challenge beyond the realm of a 'railroad theme' shows some incredible creativity. Outstanding!!!!!

Bruce, thanks! It really has been a challenge.

Jim

Thanks, Bruce!
Your Boxcar storage facility is looking great!
That would be a fun thing to try and build in the real world.
If you had the money to do it & a piece of land to put it on.
Never mind trying to convince your wife it's a good idea.

Jim, thanks very much!
I guess you could say, that it was a shoe in for me.

Bruce, glad you did not cut a window into your boxcar structure. I doubt many in the 1:1 world would bother to actually cut a window opening in a metal wall.

Nice touch on the "spoon" slide, Greg, the kids will eat it up.

Bruce...I "borrowed" the old tie foundation idea from your current boxcar storage build. Originally I was going to cross brace but I thought the ties would give a better look.
Thank you! Dave

Rich & Ted, no kit coming. This is just a 'one off' entry into our Division's Boxcar Shell Challenge.

Greg, I don't have a big enough flat area in my yard for a structure like this. Then again I can't actually see myself broaching the idea to Bonnie.

Dave, I'm glad that you found the 'railroad tie foundation' of use.

Thanks for the comments, Kyle & Mike.

@Bruce, Bob, Greg & Mike
Many thanks for your accolade

Finally managed to built the last big grilles from stxrene strips (only one strip is obviously a bit off - will habe to look how to get a better alignment of it). Couplers, horns and front ladders attached and marker lights mounted at front and rear ends.

Sorry for the poor quality of the pix - light in the basement leaves a lot to be desired in the evening.







Regards
Norman

You have a lot of talent and I am also in awe of what you are building.

, Norman, that really is one heck of a model you are building'.It reminds me of the Amtrak locos in use today. Funny they didn't catch on back in the day. Possible, world politics may of had an influence
on RYs decisions on adding them to their fleets.
