Balfour and Colucci Creek Southern (my freelanced railroad) SD40-2 #6858 leads a local freight around the bend into the yard in the Imaginary town of Balfour, NY. This picture was taken on my N Scale Balfour and Colucci Creek Southern Railroad.

Here is a locomotive that is a hard one to put a name to. When I got it, it came with no tender and two of the 6 driver wheels were broken. here is what it looked like.

Here it is once I got a drive in it that worked. Then a tender that I felt would also work.

I got bored this past Sunday and took some of my stored HO and OO gauge trains out for some runs on a quick oval I set up on the in-law's dining table. They're not the best photos because the lighting was trash, but I still wanted to share some of my collection.

Up first is a custom Metroliner cab car being pushed by an ACS64. The cab car is modified from an old Bachmann unit that I sent out to North Valley Trains https://northvalleytrains.com/

Next are models of a GWR "Prairie" and Tornado, sitting together before being run
Image

And one last one for now, a BR-Black "Pannier" tank pushing an Autocoach on the loop
Image

I have tons and tons more models in my collection that I just didn't feel like unpacking, so as I get bored again I will be sure to share.

Eventually the better half and I will get a house with a nice basement so I can take pictures of my whole collection on an actual layout, haha.

Not action photos, but here some shots of the collection I keep on display at the apartment. The shelf with the P&W and D&H units does have an empty spot on it while my Athearn Housatonic GP35 is being used as a template for custom GP9 and RS3 units I have commissioned.
