    Ed, Glad to see you back posting again!
    Those pumps look really good. Photos of some pumps used to unload tank cars don't seem to be any larger than your models. They look like a plausible size to me.

    Created a pump and motor for my water tank ..

    The water tank was created using a 2" pipe coupling as a base. The tank ended up 2-3/4" dia x 3-1/4" tall. In O scale this means the tank would be full-scale ...
    132" dia x 156" tall - or - 11ft x 13ft
    Volume: 1,235.43 cu.ft.
    Capacity: 9,242 gallons

    I created the pump and electric motor on the fly .. just making up something. I understand that the size of a pump means the larger a pump, the less time it takes to fill the tank .. also the size needed depends at least in part on how much water is used and so on. The question is .. is the pump I made ok .. does it need to be larger? (I simply made one that I could use my O scale 6" pipe fittings with.

    Sign for Jukes

    I finally made a sign for Jukes after watching Jason Jensen make some. I deviated by using CAF (Concrete Acrylic Fortifier) rather than White Glue and Water to glue the sanded paper to the wood. It has the consistency and look of milk right out of the bottle.

    Random photo

    Close up to a small scene next to Wise Engineering Works. The AC unit is from Rusty Stumps. The brick walls are also from Rusty Stumps now sold by Rail Scale Models. The beer and crate were printed at Shapeways.
