More Steel Train Action

Greetings Blog Followers,

Coiled Steel continues to roll into Empire City as the newest industry, a Ford Stamping Plant, is getting ready for it's grand opening. The New York Central Train Layout's Terminal Yard is getting a bit crowded and the Yard Master waits anxiously to roll out the steel cars and make some space in this always crowded yard.

  1. Looking good John! I like the weathering on those coil cars. You got a good deal n those acquisitions! The RS1 is a beauty!

    1. Thank Ralph! Inspiration for purchase came from KP&W! I like the weathering as well and glad I hit the "buy it now" when I came across them. The RS1 is an Atlas model. Black box. Runs sweet!!! One of my best engines.
