Finally got the outer roof below the clerestory finished on coach 284. The wood I was using initially was too hard and would not bend at all to the curve I wanted to form it to on the carlin formers and it snapped on me. So some fresh 1/64" sheet plywood was ordered and that did the trick. Now onto the upper roof and eventually the ends. #trains #passenger #narrowgauge #drgw #riogrande #coach #custom #detail #build #miniature #railroad

Nothing too special here but I turned out this caboose that's been sitting around for a few months awaiting work. It's been used and abused being a club caboose for most of its life so it had some rehab work done but now it's ready to go. Who knows when it'll run next but that's one thing I can check off the to do list #trains #drgw #riogrande #narrowgauge #models #modelrailroad #custom #detail #dirt #oil #paint #caboose #miniature #lights #railroad

Running some varnish. Looks like the 1880's.

#uprr #unionpacific #upheritage #heritage1989 Speaking of crews a phone call from a railroad employee tipped me off to a special consist of FRA inspectors behind a brand new #riogranderailroad #drgw Heritage unit number 1989. I had not seen it in person yet so I was very excited to go and sit atop my favorite spot right next to Otto Perry's rock...#train_nerds #daily_crossing #trb_express #railways_of_america #trains_worldwide #everything_transport #railsupremacy #daily_crossing
