Well , I finally got this project nearly completed. I need a rear light and firecracker antenna, but here it is. I had to cheat on the SF logo and it is to large but I have to live with it and I made the Amarillo decal for the boom.









Thanks , Mike

Thanks Alex , The car base is an MT heavyweight car but the rest is scratched with the exception of the boxcar center. It was a MT MOW car load.
The Crane is a Bachmann with many modifications and some decal work plus lowered with MT trucks and complete paint job.
Thanks , Mike

Hi,

There's a similar looking crane on Ebay right now. It's made by Minitrix.

Thanks Alex , I had one of those as well but is the wrong starting point for the ATSF , it is much smaller and wrong body shape. It is a cool crane though !!!

I've been trying out weathering some Roco DB cars, it was fun.


I've also been having fun running trains and 'train-spotting' my layout!  ;D

I just wondered what everyone was modelling on here?

I mainly collect anything that was run by BR in the 80's up to 1995.  If it's in Network SouthEast livery, even better!  :D  I have also bought a few out of place items like some Class 66's and Voyagers....all part of the fun.   ;)
:Carriage: I'm hoping to build a representation of the Oldham line as it used to look in the 1950' - 60's. The line closed in 2009. I've bought lots of rolling stock and locomotives for the period, along with buildings and various kits, and am now buying the track. Though I have the track plan to work from, the whole layout will be a challenge as there are certain things that may have to be scratchbuilt.
Any day above ground's a good day!!
