WOW. I'm stunned. Very nice work! :)


How was this posted on Jan 22, but I never saw it until today? I read all new posts in the MBTA forum once a day? Also, does Sery mean something? Or is this moderator Sery on a second account?

Very nice work!

Also, SERy stands for Seashore Electric Railway, as in the Kennebunkport/Arundel trolley museum
Did we ever hear a music sweeter than the one that thrills, as it floats along the Deerfield, as it echoes o'er the hills.
How we watch that little engine as it stalks across the plain; was there ever music sweeter, was there ever sight completer, than the coming of the train?

Wow, the last photo is so realistic. 1014 must of had a blown HEP unit so 011 has to tow it! Good work.

This is all just too good to be true! I'm blown away! :-) If only I had the time and of course the massive amount of skill you obviously have.

New users go through a "probation" period. The first few posts (5, perhaps?) must be approved by a moderator before they are made public. It's done to prevent spam.

Attached is a picture of the all electric PCC # 3197 which is nearly complete - still needs truck work.

Nice job ! You nailed the colors exactly. I painted a car with a small amount of real discarded T "tangerine" once. It's identical to your version. The creme is probably the hardest match and you got that down as well. :-)

It was just some random orange paint I found at Home Depot that turned out to be just the right color. Sometimes you get lucky :)

Looks like WAP's equipment but he has a low SERy # so I doubt there his.
