A beautiful October day in the Rockies

Trucks, tank, steps, and coupler are assembled on the tender today. I've got quite a bit of air brake pipe work to do but some fairly thorough research gives me a good idea of what needs done and what goes where. Of course, work on coach 284 is occurring as well. #trains #models #modelrailroad #drgw #riogrande #custom #detail #miniature #steam #steamlocomotive #tender #brass

#tbt to when I saw the 346 at crrm in summer 2015. #drgw #346 @coloradorailroadmuseum

I'm moving out of my house... Dunno if I should stay in the bay area or not... I've never really been in love with this place, but I have an opportunity to move into a new shop space and reopen a legitimate shred shed... One of my other options is to go up north and build a hand hewn treehouse way out in the cut for some homies... Time to roll the dice... Maybe I'll see you around...?

@17stevenmichael08 @twinkyllamas it gets even better. I couldn't decide which to post. It was a lucky day. 1989 is literally a month old here. All three roads represented here that make up what Union Pacific finally ended up with what we know as the #drgw #riogranderailroad Anschutz involvement was also involved and the #southernpacificrailroad #sprr. A story is at play here almost in order. SP first The the UP.. now Heritage. @trainsmagazine

I think I finally got the color right on these pieces. The biggest lesson I learned so far in this paint matching process is that the big model companies that make models to match paint to a prototype are more than likely wrong with their final product. They're close but they're not exact, and close doesn't cut it for me on this project. I've done probably 10 different physical comparisons from Athearn Genesis models to Lionel Vision Line pieces and none of them are the exact shade I was looking for. All of them are different shades. To solve my issue I used authentic D&RGW Aspen Gold straight from the Burnham Shops that I got a hold of via a friend from up north. Can't beat the real thing! #trains #models #modelrailroad #drgw #riogrande #steam #dome #brass #custom #railroad #detail #models #modelrailroad

Not too much notable progress is being made on my end but progress is still happening. With silver tender trucks drying, tomorrow I can start reassembly of the tender on 268. At the same time on coach 284, I found my decals for the lettering are about 1/16" too tall for the upper fascia so I have to extend it slightly for the proper application which is easier said than done. I've been wondering if the decal is too big or I cut the fascia too small but the point is moot because I have to fix it regardless. #trains #steam #tender #trucks #detail #brass #railroad #models #modelrailroad #custom #drgw #riogrande

A rare sight today. K-36, K-28, and K-37 all together again under one roof.

CB&Q northern #5629. This engine was in running condition when it first came to the museum and still has a fully equipped back head.

Tonight's work has resulted in a fairly detailed interior of the coach. All the chairs have been painted and installed along with coal bins for the coal stoves I'm working on. Once those are done I'll make the dividing walls for the bathrooms, add appliances and all that will be left is the lights. #trains #models #modelrailroad #narrowgauge #drgw #riogrande #detail #custom #wood #miniature #coach #passenger #stain #railroad

As of now my trucks for coach 284 are built, painted, and awaiting some clear coats to seal the paint. Lately I've been working on quite a few projects across the board with not much actually getting completed which explains the lack of posts but rest assured progress is being made! #trains #models #modelrailroad #drgw #riogrande #narrowgauge #passenger #trucks #paint #detail #custom #brass #wood #miniature #railroad

The first of at least 6 overhead luggage bins and coat hooks is finished for coach 284 and combine 212 #trains #drgw #riogrande #brass #miniature #models #modelrailroad #detail #custom #passenger #narrowgauge
