Attachment 505866 Nice layout pics. Don, Thanks for sharing them.
I also have many examples of all those cars. I've always liked the log cars, and have them in link and knuckle coupler.

A 592 Crossing Gate from 1950 in decent condition, minus pedestrian gate section, like most of them.

Very nice. I do not think I have seen one of them before. Probably a lot out there I have not seen.

Thanks.

It works off a track trip, but that causes it to bounce a bit when the train passes. I'll wire it to a switch instead. That dark dot below the gate is actually a hole and a light bulb shines up from beneath and illuminates the little red lantern.

I always watch for things that are post-war up to about 1959, particularly if metal and sporting the accessory green theme. Matches the vintage of both my 1948 Pacific Freight and my 1957 Santa Fe Freight.

Nice crossing gate shaker281. I think Doug at PortLines sell the gates for the crossings.

I now see that he does, thanks for the suggestion. I was actually preparing an order for Port Lines.

I am a fan of tank cars. I have 3 Gulf tankers. 2 3 digit and 1 5
digit cars. These are 2 625Gs. On my want list is a 3 dome MobilGas red tank car. I also notice we have over 8,000 views on this thread so it seems to be a popular thread. Hee Hee, I knew it would be. Good job guys. Keep the pics coming.

These 2 tankcars could use a bath, other than dust they are in decent condition. I also have a 5 digit Gulf with knuckle couplers.
I hope to get a few more of these and have a nice train with just Gulf tankers.

Note the one on the right has 3 spring trucks so it is likely a later production. Don't forget about the 926 and 24313 Gulf 3 dome tank cars for your all Gulf train.

Good looking tank cars. I like the die-cast frame ones even though they have less detail than the plastic frame ones. They are heavier and seem to track better. Here's my pic for the day. A boxed 716 automatic dump car from 1948. Somehow, I have managed to misplace the bag of coal. IMG_0004.JPG
