This photo was taken on Gaylord Gill's "Buffalo & Chautauqua" layout, which represents portions of the PRR's Northern Division in 1953. Brooks Stover added enhancements to Gaylord's photo, including the smoke effects. The scene is at the Pennsy's yard in Olean, NY, and the crew of shifter #8547 prepares to add a cut of cars to train PB-1 as it makes its way to Buffalo. Gaylord hosted formal operating sessions on his layout during the 2016 NASG Convention. You can see more details and additional photos of Gaylord's layout on this page.
The diesel servicing yard is very busy this morning on Bob Hogan's layout. You can see more photos and details about Bob's layout on this page.
Mike Swederska and Bill Winans each model a private railroad. They each have had decals printed for their respective railroads. So, the idea was to exchange a set of such decals and each modeler build a box car with the other's decals. On the left is Mike's "Meramec Valley Lines" box car on Bill's layout, and on the right is Bill's "St. Louis Eastern and Pacific" box car on Mike's layout. Neat!
Bill Lane's friend, Gus Minardi, built this Model Tech Studios' newsstand, customized for Bill. It includes the 1955 PRR calendar hanging on the building; the year that Bill models on his layout.
"The Supply Car" was an online retail store that Bob McCarthy created. In addition to selling other manufacturers' products, he also started creating his own product line of kits. He created passenger cars (based on American Models shells), a flat car kit (a collaboration between Bob M., Charles Boas, and Lake Junction Models), and box car and refrigerator cars (manufactured for Bob M. by Lake Junction Models). Unfortunately, Bob M. had some serious health issues which ultimately led to his passing. Since he was working with Bob Hogan before his passing, Bob H. wound up with Bob M.'s inventory. Bob H. and other local modeler Pete Silcox have been going through that inventory. They recently discovered a number of partially-started models that Bob M. was working on, and so they decided to finish them in a manner that they suspected was Bob M's original intent. These are shown in this photo. The models are posed on Bob Hogan's beautiful layout. One of the models Bob H. and Pete were unaware of was the 50-foot double-sheathed box car kit. The 50-foot kits were apparently available with single doors, 1-1/2 doors, and double-doors (prototype for these cars is unknown). Shown in the photo are (front to back): a Great Northern double-door 40' auto car; two Northern Pacific 40' 10' interior-height box cars; two NP 40' 1-1/2-door box/auto cars, and the "discovered" Northern Pacific 50', this one with the 1-1/2 doors.
The crew of 2-6-0 #1727 is preparing the engine for the day's run on Paul Washburn's layout. You can see many more photos of Paul's layout on this page.
A special day on Bill Lane's layout, when all of his modern road power came out for a railfan photoshoot.
John Clifford has built an 8' x 10' A.C. Gilbert-based layout with Bachmann Plasticville structures, and he shares a couple of photos of it on his layout page.
Paul Washburn has been working on expanding his layout. It now includes a peninsula. He has the track, wiring, and the Del-Aire system (for controlling the turnouts) all done. He sent a number of photos, which you can see on his layout page.
