Off-Topic Discussion / SVRR passenger service
« on: August 15, 2017, 09:36:18 AM »
This last weekend I managed to lay hands on a set of Bachmann passenger cars for the Sprite Valley Railroad. I picked up the baggage car, coach, and observation car locally for $20 apiece. The brand new, never run combine got bought at the train show on Saturday for $30.

I ran it to work out some derailing problems with one of the used cars, and the new car.

Now with lights and smoke, which isn't very prominent. Toward the middle, I walk through the shot, headed out to talk to the man and his kids who were lined up at the fence watching it go round the track. They heard it running from the next block.

Made smoke...

Sorta...

Had the G-scale layout all planned. Then my wife changed my mind for me. Which isn't all that bad, as the area she wants the garden railroad in now is bigger, flatter, and better drained. So, today, I cleared out the weeds and put down some temporary track to do a little railroading...

The other side, showing the troll engineer in the cab. The theory is that the gnomes own the railroad. The hired trolls to actually operate it, because trolls like fire, and steam and noise. The fairies pay the gnomes to ride on it.

Now I have to get the outdoor layout built, assuming my wife can make up my mind...

Apparently, the maintenance crew for the SVRR don't spell too good...

Thanks. Just one more side of the cab to go, and then the tender.

Lettering of my Piko 0-6-0 for the Sprite Valley RR is proceeding. It's been a long time since I did this sort of thing. Twenty years ago, I made a hobby of painting toy soldiers.

It may be better for everyone if they don't spend their time passing.

Because everyone is hiring contract lawyers who do not work for the government and paying the millions of dollars.

That was weird. Driving down the street in Prescott. Saw a guy with a black page boy haircut walking down the sidewalk wearing a red speedo, a black satin cape and combat boots.
