HO Scale Models Representing Equipment of the Attica & Freedom RR, The Buffalo, Attica & Arcade RR, and early Arcade & Attica RR.

I've at last managed to take photos of some of the projects I've been working on over the winter. Here are links to my Facebook albums. These albums are visible to everyone, so you don't have to have a Facebook account to view them.

HO Scale B. A. & A. R. R. Equipment:

I hope you enjoy them. There's alot more to come, including images of more 'vintage' equipment, galleries for HO Scale A&A freight equipment, and galleries featuring the passenger excursion train, including models of Locomotives 14 and 18. I will also feature images of my 'fictitious' A&A equipment, such as 'Steamer No. 20' and 'Diesel No. 113'.

I hope to create dioramas in the future, as well, and perhaps even feature the photos on an Arcade & Attica Railroad-in-HO Scale website.

Nice job! They are well done (except for the last picture of the Casey Jones ten-wheeler with A&A tender. I must have missed the prototype picture you based your model on! :wink:

Thanks, Ben.

As far as the 'Casey Jones', however, as with most of the other photos, the captions provided beneath the photos tell the story.

I found that Ten Wheeler at a model railroad fair just as you saw it in the photos, with the tender lettered "Arcade & Attica" in big red letters. I bought it, photographed it the way I found it, then repainted it and weathered it as A&A No. 4.

There's a second page to that gallery (which I'm guessing you didn't notice) that shows the 'Casey Jones' repainted as No. 4.
