N&W J-Class #600 pulled into Eastwood Ridge today. Word is a bigwig from N&W is aboard. The maintenance facilities here are privately owned and the railroads pay for locomotive service and repair. Must be going well since they're building a car repair shop. N&W is probably making a bid to buy it out. Stay tuned...

SAL ALCO RS-3 showed up in the post. Bachmann, DCC w/sound. Just as I ordered it back in March everything shutdown because of the damn-panic. So 2+ months later it's here.

Sound? No. It wasn't obnoxiously loud out of the box and the quality was better than most I've heard - which isn't that many. I just don't care for it.

It's a low-ry-der. Full stop when it slams into a couple of my wood grade crossings (although it clears the one in the 2nd pic w/o a problem). Had a couple of cars whose trucks were dragging over those crossings. Now I guess I have to tear them out and fix them. :rolleyes:

You have a beautiful layout. I like how you have made good use of old kits.

I didn't think the colors the Supply House was molded in could be workable, but you've shown me otherwise. Here's mine, which I'm also turning into a feed mill. (I cut the back side off for use as a warehouse elsewhere on my layout, because I couldn't bear to have so much detail hidden from sight.)

Baloney's Barn from Showcase Miniatures. Laser cut kit. Not too difficult, but tedious. "Can be built in 1 to 2 evenings" is pushing it - IOW it didn't happen.

Hydromist paints used to make the wash to turn the wood gray. Vallejo light rust on the tin roof. Then, 20 years later, Vallejo dark rust.

Rust trivia: Light, bright orange rust is actually eating the metal. Dark rust – sometimes it appears almost purple – has stabilized or “skinned” and actually protects the metal from farther, deeper oxidation. That said, rust never sleeps.

Looks as sharp as an old beat up barn can😅 Anything else new going on with the layout?
