Ships are my second favorite model. I too am enjoying the models of ships and boats.

Here is a quick run by featuring the LC&NC loco and three AccuRail boxcars. These had been sitting on the workbench in various stages of unfinished. They were the first cars I worked on. I finished building them and weathered them. I used dry brushing and washes on them. The caboose is brand new and desperately needed as both of my LNE cabooses need repairs.

My major scratch build of the year was this water tank.

Tom, again a great looking fleet of boxcars, and I love the camelback loco. They are so unusual, and not often seen.

Bruce, great looking tank. You really nailed the weathering.

My last build for the year was another O scale fishing trawler. I normally model in N scale, but this O scale stuff is quite addictive.
As with the other one, I heavily modified a kit hull and deck, and all the rest including all the details were scratchbuilt.
Full build here.

Hi Scott. Nice to see you're still around.
And really nice work as always.
I assume that is your new Large Scale project, not the On30 layout ?

Robert Goslin.........Yes I am still around. I still belong too an On30 club but the focus of my layout now is 1:24 scale G- narrow gauge. All areas are converted or rebuilt, and all equipment and buildings sold. I did modify my lower lever logging line to Gn15 using my original On30 track layout.

The next run by displays a few more items I acquired this year. The Mother Hubbard as IHC called them in Atlantic City Railroad livery was a surprise find. I was searching for something else and it popped up. Since the price was right and the ACRR is a predecessor of one of the lines I have on my layout, the Pennsylvania-Reading Seashore Lines I grabbed it.



The next two cars I consider one of my best finds for the year. They are Athearn Blue Box kits of Heinz pickle tank cars. From what I could find out about these guys is they have been out of production for 30 plus years. The cars were assembled but required some tweaking to get them running. I had to replace the metal spring trucks since they were causing a shorting issue, add metal wheels, and add Kadee couplers. A little bit of weathering and they were ready to go.





The following two cars are also rare as is anything for NYO&W. Atlas and Roundhouse (Athearn) RTR have released a few items in the past couple of years, but they sell out quickly. These two are kits made for the Old and Weary Car Shop by MDC/Roundhouse. 9721 is a 36 FT Wood Boxcar and 6521 is a 36 FT Wood Reefer. Both were unbuilt when I obtained them. I assembled and weathered them.





The St Louis Refrigerator Car Company reefer is a run of the mill Bachmann Silver Series car. I got as part of an order with Trainworld just because I liked the way it looked, and it was on sale.



Bring up the rear is a Roundhouse (Athearn) RTR Reading caboose. I needed a new all red caboose for Reading and purchased this one. Since I donít have an ACRR caboose, I am using the Reading caboose as a substitute since the ACRR was a wholly owned subsidiary of the Reading and they would loan the ACRR a caboose when needed.



And there is a video

Thanks for the info Scott.

Louis, Nice to see all your work in one hit. You certainly achieved a lot this year.

Tom, more great rolling stock. And another camelback. You sure do nice work.

Dave, in 1:29 scale, must be a huge diorama.
All scratchbuilt I assume ?

Louis, Those scenes are incredible.

Dave, great looking building.

Rob, thanks. I have another IHC Camelback from many years ago. It started life as Chesapeake & Ohio and I converted it into Lehigh & New England. I also have a NYO&W Mantua Camelback that is the pride of the Camelback fleet. I will post a photo later and the story behind it.

The next of my 2020 builds was the Campbell Oil Derrick. I bought the plans, castings, and some of the wood on e-Bay. The rest of the wood came from my stash. That was an enjoyable build.

The build thread can be found here: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=52525&whichpage=1
