LIRR Model Layouts

Postby nyandw » Fri Dec 09, 2016 8:33 pm

It's that time of year for trains under the tree, railfan specials, Christmas rail themed greeting cards, layouts opened to the public, etc. Here are a few layouts to view: http://www.trainsarefun.com/modeling/Scenes/lirrmodelingscenes.htm

Jim Caramore's Morris Park Shops Roundhouse

Anyone wishing to add their modeling to the website, just let me know. Merry Christmas. :-)

That's a pretty amazing roundhouse shot, Steve! Using those locomotive in selection, and perhaps by weathering them extensively, you could make up some fantastic "period" shots. Great models, great picture!

I've been spending most of my time working on rolling stock. Here are some examples. Some are as-purchased, others are kits. The white ones are obviously awaiting time in the painting booth.
Brand new RDC from Rapido (with sound)
Image
Atlas RS-3 with sound, relocated horns, steam generator stack in back and MU lines. Damn those railings look way too big.
Image
A mix of a Con-Cor MP54 (with sound), Island Modelworks MP75 (powered with Proto RDC drive),
Funaro & Camerlengo M-72, and MT-54. MP-70 double deckers coming soon.
Image
All use Kadee 58 couplers.

Dauntless, are those hand made turnouts? Outstanding work displayed in your photo.

When I get home I'll post some of my model LIRR stuff. I'm working on a layout that represents the 80's through now.
