    I worked on my nephew's small layout, which is the one that I made with A Shark in the Corner. We have been working on adding a mountain and tunnel, and this weekend was the fun part of adding ground goop on top of the expanded Great Stuff foam.

    Finished the decalling on this gondola.

    Used the Michael Livingston decals I found, umm somewhere. They were easy to use but a little easy to rub off.

    No river counting please, I realized later it’s not the exact model but it’s close enough.

    Looks good! I don't see any decal film edges, it looks factory-printed.

    After getting back from the modular railroading event on Saturday, I went to the office on Sunday to catch up on some work, then had a few more long days. But now I'm kinda sorta back in the model railroading track

    Started making a tank car transport and storage box:

    How are you making those? What are they made out of? Are you upcycling something or injection molding plastic cases?

    It's made from an IKEA SAMLA box (the 11l version), some cut-to-fit PVC plates and the inserts from the jewel cases the cars came in, stuck onto the PVC plates with double sided tape. No custom injection molding

    Very cool -- nice re-use of the jewel case inserts to create more efficient / secure storage...

    Yeah, storage is one point, transportation to module meetings and quick unpacking/repacking is the more important one. I brought 39 tank cars with their jewel cases to a meet at the beginning of this month, it's a lot of work to unpack/repack them. For reefers, boxcars, hoppers I just have cable channels with foam inserts, but tank cars with all their platforms and ladders and piping are going to loose all their details in that kind of transportation.

    Hmmm Half Steam Half Deisel with the Deisel edging out ahead (in foreground of shared photo, had to look for the Steam). I would of pictured it earlier in the transition era if not before.
