      thirty pages of empty aluminium tubes on wheels...

      not really inspiring for thread drifts, i say.

      Korm ....Please re-read as recommended before posting. According to my math tubes are only 30% of the fleet if that !

      as requested, i re-read one relevant post.

      without wanting to be impolite, dear Sir, i think, your math is deeply flawed.

      if you come up with just 30%, you forgot to include the % proof in your right hand err... wing.

       

      proof: Vol%

       

      memo to self: google "math tube"

      All you have to do is turn up the speakers and listen to the devious outlandish conversations that were had at Dads place!

      This conversation hurts my feelings especially after just renewing my permit to carry them concealed!

       

       

      Thank you Cousin Matt for operating the small consist at the proper speed !

    •  Confession may help with the cleaning of the soul, but when I review the evidence I have to wonder if the one who should be the confessor isn't also the one on the lam.

      It's not ALWAYS that the "Roosta" derails stuff...

       

       

      A good cleansing of the soul is always proper as we are not getting any younger

      Indeed...If you’re over 50 and wake up with no pain...it means you’re dead...

    •  30 pages of nothing but Amtrak modeling! Amtrak has nothing on how many pages Penn Central modeling could bring....ahhh those were the days.

    • November 18, 2019 6:59 PM EST
    • Why dabble as Penn Central modeler? Just dig in as most are just closet modelers that fear the lashing. I myself like lashings !

    • In this life, I dabble as a Penn Central Modeler. Its just a bit more offensive them Amtrak.

    •    Love it. In my next life I'm coming back as an Amtrak modeller.

      Still in rough frame up mode and building for operational quality going roundy round with the 10' rule applied. Details are for the museum quality foamers but not for me ....it's all about the shadows and minor details that make them appear including scratches and dents.

      The elders taught me years ago that scratches and dents make a model.

       

       

       

      It's all good and to each his own but i would like to see some other Amtrash cars in this scale so I can compare my 10' rule.

       

       

      Thanks for looking!

    • Rooster,

      I can send some decals your way. You asked a while back and I forgot. 

       

      Frustrating to get so close and then have the model messed up by my mistakes with decaling. Have I mentioned how much I hate decaling?
