PRR Locomotives

Postby bob turner » Fri Aug 14, 2020 12:58 pm

Come now - I can understand if nobody else does Union Pacific or Southern Pacific, but surely there are SPFs out there with a Flickr account?
I should mention that I have mastered "Shutterfly" mostly, and now posting photos is at least as easy as it was when MTJ supported photos.
Here goes - first will be a Scale Craft K4:

What does having a Flickr account have to do with looking at your models? Somewhere I have maybe 3-4 engines that might sort of qualify in a related sense.....

This is a good thing and should demonstrate to others that options readily exist for hosting photos.

Thanks!
Martin, it takes Flickr, Shuttlesworth, or a paid Photobucket account, or the equivalent to post here. I am just hoping someone other than me has the ability to post. Maybe PRR fans have accounts?

I am aware of that issue; the way you worded it implied that Flickr was the requirement while other options exist

I do have na account for hosting photos ("or the equivalent") but have no PRR engines........well, maybe....... I'll have to look. I think I do but actually have no photos of them. Probably.

In any case they were supposed to be relettered and renumbered for their CVRR roster prior to absorption into the PRR

I'll have to see about excavating 1 or 3?

Ok, while I'm excavating engines from under the storage area under the layout to take pictures, here's one you've seen before.

PRR H1

Lettered & numbered correctly for the CVRR engine No. 52 (wish I had more of these!!!)

Very nice. I bet one could find a PRR protoype for that. And I do not remember seeing it before.

Gee, Bob. I posted that it was a PRR H1. CVRR had several of them.

Here is a Hippo - Lobaugh Berk frame, CLW drivers, Scale Craft K4 boiler opened up five scale inches, scratch tender. It was ugly for a very long time - an ash pan and some paint converted it into a reasonable model.

Stunning. You have been holding out on us.

How did you get the Russia Iron effect?

No. Old photo and only the D6 is mine; rest are Sethian's

I didn't -- SMR did. One of my very rare RTR purchases.

Use plastic, or go battery power? Nice weathering!
