    Default Transformer load

    A brand new transformer just arrived at my contractor's yard, hence the tie-downs have been removed already

    Those trucks were produced for quite a few years.

    If those trucks with the stripes are going to the U.S. Postal Service, than the trucks shouldn't arrive for another couple of decades. Before that, the various vehicles used were dark blue body with upper half in white with a red stripe. Check out the old Bachmann/Model Power truck pack for the scheme on a delivery van.

    Need to add some blocking and chains to it.

    It sounded like a good idea at the time... too bad the caboose wasn't in on the plan.

    I used to travel and show with The New Mexico Railrunners and was often asked questions about the tiny loco and motors, so I put this together. Seems that a picture is better than words.......................................

    Just finished up this project that I started far too long ago:



    The camera doesn't do it justice, there's a nice wash effect on the Rex that doesn't come out as well in the images. I found the T-Rex on Shapeways, another person had a similar idea and was working on an entire 3D printed car enclosure. I reached out and was able to get the Rex and her cage printed, then I painted them up and scratchbuilt a floor for her. I have not decided on how to affix the load to the car just yet, I'm not sure if I will want to switch flat cars later. I'm also hoping to paint up a couple of Jeeps and Ford Explorers to go with Rexy.

    Nice. Somebody on the forum here was working on stuff like this a few years back - had some neat sounding ideas for a railway moving the dinos around the park. I have no idea what happened, but wonder if it's the same person you found the 3D print from.

    I think it might have been, the guy I contacted was telling me a but about something very similar if not the same.
