    Weekly RMR Gallery: Sept. 18-24, 2022 "What do you have to share this week?"

    There are no restrictions on what can be posted. In can be from 10, 20 or 30 minutes ago to 10, 20 or 30 years.

    My favorite section of model railroading magazines are the subscriber photo sections so would love to see a lot get posted here.

    I had the opportunity to run my last logging engines and cars at the local club on Saturday. After 20+ years in storage, the 2 BLI switchers fired up and -after some coaxing- did quite a few laps.

    Great photo Russ and that is simply amazing that they ran. Also, your local club seems to have a real impressive layout.

      Thanks Loren. The wheels probably had a little bit of oxidation on them but after a minute they just took off (I was happy that the sound still worked ok). They were MUed for the first couple of laps then on their own. The club has 2 big DCC layouts and a smaller -but still big- DC layout. 2 N scale layouts are in storage as well.

    The Sunday sidewalk service is in full swing in front of the Gospel Mission. The preacher even found a crate to help give him that towering pulpit feeling.

      Like the scenes that tell a story.

      Just remember Loren. The money he collects must be in the Cook County Illinois tax office by noon Monday to avoid foreclosure!

    Nothing new on my layout to take pics of, but I'll toss one in the bunch from not too long ago.

    1351 was seen spotting a fuel tanker at the shops today.

    It's probably responsible for the greatest number of shoddy layouts because no one feels compelled to improve themselves. Meh, good enough...

    That’s an awesome photo Allen. I love the weathering on all the tanks and tank car. I went with the multiple spill approach on a couple of my tank cars and I don’t like it at all. Not sure what I can do at this point to fix them. What is that in the background that looks like a cab to a loco or something?

      I like that photo too. The GP (18?) looks the part, well worn as is the tank car.
      Like Loren, the short hood has me intrigued, and looks like more of that loco or similar behind the pump house.

        Yeah Russ, it's a GP18

        Loren, yes it's part of cab from a shell I had laying around.
        Here's a shot from the backside of the shops that shows the little scrap yard.

        Well isn't that a cool idea. I imagine more smaller stuff will end up there as well to give it more a blended look and continuity?

          I agree Allen. More smaller clutter is what's missing. The shop crew needs to get that prime mover installed in a dummy engine.

          Yep, if that engine is still useful, either as a replacement or parts source, it needs to be off the ground, maybe old RR ties and either tarped or some sort of open shed. Other junk will work too, just odd shapes tarped over.

          I've got a lot of stuff to add there yet, I agree.

        I have been busy testing a new version of TrainController software so here is a picture from last month.

          After your comment Joe I went back and counted. Yep, unless my old eyes are deceiving me there a five bridges and thus "a true bridge scene". I didn't catch it the first time. That is quite an accomplishment.

          Thanks.

          There are actually 6 bridges in this area although only 5 are pictured.

          The very top trestle is from my previous layout. When I ripped it down I left this bridge in place as I was planning on having mountains in this area. There is no track connected to it. I want to make it look abandoned but not really sure what to do.

          The 4th bridge near the bottom is a walking bridge over the river. You can’t see it from this angle but there is a guy on the bridge with his fishing rod.

          The bridge with the train on it is double tracked mainline. These mainlines loop around and come back through the lower part of the scene. The middle bridge is a branch line off of one of the mainlines. The bottom bridge that is barely visible is one of the mainline bridges and the 6th bridge that is not visible is the other mainline bridge as at this point the mainline has split and I couldn’t do a double tracked bridge.

        Beautiful scene Brad. I feel like I’ve been transported back to living in El Paso.

          Thank you Loren. My layout is supposed to be northern Nevada but I believe the backdrop scenes are from somewhere in New Mexico so can see why it would remind you of El Paso.
