** Here is a start of not a great project but a little one.  
* I have a spare Marx Erie metal depressed center flat car. I mounted a Penn Line diesel generator casting to it. Now to find some small flood lights and metal wheels and axels for electrical pick-up.

Today i'mm posting some 1950's HO DC equipment. The locomotive is made by Fleischmann in Western Germany. The 3 cars are made in Eastern Germany by PECO. They get together in this photo.  
* Fleischmann is a 0-6-0t #1320, 80 class, 1952. 80-1952 is on the cab side and front number board. 1320 is just on the cab side
* I added a crate and a container from this country.

Here's a nice old Work-Caboose in excellent condition, a Lionel-Rivarossi car from 1957. A good year for Chevy rag tops. The same car was marketed by AHC about the same time. Of course without the Lionel L.

This is a Red Ball wooden car that needed lots of TLC to get it to look like something again. I had to replace some of the wood and use wood filler in some areas. I like it because it has the fox type trucks. I used light wood stain on it to give it an ancient look. I haven't decided what road name to use, (maybe NYS&W) so for now it will be unlettered.
My last wooden car in the "shop" is a Varney model which is in progress.

I like the Navy consist you have assembled. The "ghost" is a fitting name for that engine.

Here is a good car find from the Hamburg PA. train show last weekend. It was with mixed up with cars of many manufacturers. It is a Lionel Rocket fuel car. The first one I have gotten. It can run with the Marx ones I have. It is in very good condition for a late 1950's car.
** Lionel 0815, Rocket Fuet tank car.
