NEB&W Visit

I had a wonderful opportunity to attend an operation session on the New England Berkshire and Western on April 21.  This is a world class class club that is located on the campus of Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. I can not think of a layout I have sen in person that has a more realistic city scenery that really nails the details of structures and scenes. I am posting a few photos of may visit.

PS-1 Box Cars

The New Haven bought 1000 PS-1 40 box cars that had 10'6" interior height.  They are considered to be earlier body style with on ribs on the end panels of the roof, now small rectangle panels on the peak of the ends and shorter tabs on the sides by the bolsters.  Ted Culotta did a great article on these care as part of his Essential freight Car series that ran in Railroad Model Craftsman. He also has great decals for script herald for these cars, just check out Speedwitch models.

The 7' Superior doors are from Southwest Scale.
