WOW Chris,  
If anything, this set of pics shows your artistry off, even better.  Both, engines and scenery.  An especially nice feature, is the plant growth in the rail areas.  Looks as though you've 'rusted' the rails.
I'll bet the trackage is good too, unlike mine, which is like driving an engine over jello.

Hello green_elite_cab....Yes, on a freshly painted engine. My customer wanted one that looked like it had been out on the road for a bit so I used a light grey instead....Tom

 
 
Ah, makes sense.  If you hadn't told me, i wouldn't have noticed it was just gray! Looks good!

I would love to ask how you did it all!  The whole layout is amazing.  How did you do those weeds?

** Just out of the engine house and shown on the work bench are 2 saddle tank locomotives. The Aristo Craft 0-6-0 t of the PRR.
The second is a Reading 0-4-0t vintage 1860s. It is a Silvine model called the "Teakettle". Both are all die cast, New One models.

* Reading started building the G class in 1916, The CNJ had Baldwin build a look alike G1s in July of 1918. Mine is the CNJ version. it had 79" drivers. The Reading liked the CNJ version and had baldwin make them 5 in 1924. These were the first 4-6-2s made by some other than the Reading. These were the G1sa class .# 130 to 134.  The next year in 1925 Baldwin made 5 more for the Reading G1sb class, # 200 to 204. These had smaller 74" drivers. This was done to allow the engines to handel the hilly turrain better.

This work is for your use?

Yes the CSOR locos are for my use and its pretty much the entire B39-8 Roster the CSO has. They also borrow locos from Sister road NECR (New England Central Railroad) to use and I am working on most of the roster for them too as that is where I am employed as an Engineer currently. I pretty much model Conrail on the Boston Line and Amtrak on the NEC and Boston Line with New England Shortlines and Commuter Railroads tossed in.
