In Trains & Stuff you get to see trains and details like weeds and other things like the pix below. This is what's on John's work desk right now. He's taking little pieces off of the cars and putting new little pieces back on. He does this with a giant magnifying glass.  I have no clue what he's doing.

John says: "I am using Plano detailing parts, which are made from stainless steel and brass to replace the plastic walkways and ladders that came with with ConCor Gunderson 5-car intermodal unit (the red cars). The Plano parts are really made for the Athearn version but they work well on the ConCor model as well. The goal is to make a 10 car intermodal consist that will be pulled by the big green Burlington Northern diesel engine sitting in the yard area. Therefore, when I finish this set I have an A-Line kit of 5 Thrall intermodal cars to work on."

"These cars are the reason we had to raise all the overpasses after originally laying the track. Ray at the Model Railroad Post Office in West Milford, NJ told me that this was very prototypical because the railroads have been doing the same thing to their track in order to make enough room for the tall intermodal cars to pass under bridges. Oh boy, that sure make me feel good about it!"  

I say, "Huh?" Anyway, scroll past the picture and you'll find the links.  February, 2002.


The pictures are arranged chronologically with older stuff first.
