  • Rolling Stock for the SR-and-N

    Greetings Folks,

    I've been at it for a while but I never really seem to make much progress on my HOn30 Saco River & Newfoundland railway. I don't have any space at all for a layout at the moment, so I've decided to try and get some of my rolling stock finished.

    First up is the newest piece added to the fleet, a Steven's Creek Monson 26' Flatcar:



    This is a scratchbuilt boxcar made up of styrene and the usual detail parts:



    And here's a trio of older bits all assembled from Chivers kits:







    I have a half finished reefer being made from a cut down Grandt Line kit and another low side gondola nearing completion. I'll try and keep y'all updated as I finish bits.

    Cheers,

    -Cody

    Here's the other low side gondola, built over a Chivers flatcar frame:



    The coal is freshly added with some lettering and weathering to be next.

      Good looking cars, Cody.

        All nice cars, Cody. I'm particularly drawn to the Steven's Creek Monson 26' Flatcar. I'm a sucker for short flats with small bulkheads.

          Thanks Gents!

          Me too Bruce, I'm thinking about scratch-building a couple more of these. I really like those short bulkheads too.

              Nice work, Cody. How long is the scratchbuilt boxcar?

                Thanks Larry & Jeff!

                Jeff, The boxcar is a hair under 29 feet. It was built over an N scale Micro Trains 50' frame.

                  Cody, all these cars are beautiful, I like the size and the weathering. Makes me want to get back into building equipment. Please post more pictures if you have some. I love pictures.

                    Thanks David,

                    I'm forever torn between O and HO scale and most of the progress I make is in fits and starts. I did manage to stick some more bits to my cut down Grandt Line Reefer which unfortunately wont get any primer until spring and I can get outside with my rattle cans...

                    I still have a Steven's Creek Monson boxcar to build and some motive power to build/finish... I'll keep updating this thread as I go.

                      Howdy Folks,

                      Here's a quick update and a couple new pictures of the latest rolling stock for my SR&N.

                      First, the Reefer I mentioned before using cut down Grandt Line sides and detail bits, scratchbuilt everything else and freshly primed:



                      And another 28' flatcar, scratchbuilt out of wood using a Steven's Creek lasercut deck:



                      I have some more stuff in the works, more soon.

                      -Cody

                        Nice work, Cody. I like the weathering on the flat car.
