<< I'm doing a small scene I first saw on the EBT several years ago.
That is a tree growing out of a Hopper car partially filled with gravel.
Old hopper screwed down to layout w a 2" wood screw.
partially full of sand with ground foam on top
with a Woodland Scenic Tree planted in it.
Car has been worked over with a soldering iron to
make dents and bent parts.
It is at end of track with big pile of gravel against bumper
Has weeds and ivy growing up side.
Lots of heavy dark rail brown weathering.
I left the coupler but cut off the knuckle.
Weathered dirty track lots of weeds etc.
Regards, Rick Shoup >>
Sounds great - got any pics to post for the rest of us to see?

<< Actually, never made it to the workbench...... as much as it pains
me to be humbled about it.>>
Not a problem. I've been offline for months, so there's been no one to
prompt you :-)
<< Yup the tender is there. Along with machining of what are key
parts of a scale HOn3 4-4-0 in several engineering flavors and eras. >>
That sounds great! Any chance of a D&RG style 8-18-C?
Taking this long, you should have the entire 1891 D&RG roster replicated to
the scale millimeter within a few hours :o)
<< . . . I also work out some useable and hopefully elegant
HOn30/36 powered speeders. One of them is even a RGS design.>>
That sounds interesting. Any chance of a scale model of the Ford RGS speeder?
<< As for some of the things I'm working upon..... You even think of
doing a Free Lanced branch operation to go with the Silverton
operation for the stuff they never ran????>>
No. I really don't ahve enough room to do much right now. I may have a free
room to use sometime in the next couple months. I'm thinking of first
modeling the Silverton yard and then doing a modular On27-1/2" or On30 Cuban
sugar cane hauler.
Thanks for not forgetting about the project!
