The Great Train Show Tulsa OK Feb 11-12th 2017

Although there were only a few layouts and a dozen dealers, it took me all day Saturday to roam around and dig in the countless boxes of train goodies. I ended up spend a couple hundred and walked out with some good stuff, some I needed, some I didn't :)

N-Scalers of Oklahoma had a huge layout setup, with great running trains, trackwork and scenery.

I will return for the next show, enjoyed Tulsa and the friendly folks there.

Painting and weathering some new (to me) brass log cars

Nothing too difficult in the way I painted and weathered these 3 brass cars. Spray bomb red, then dull-coated, then added Bragdon's weathering chalks. The trucks are old MDC/Roundhouse trucks with Reboxx 33".88 wheelsets, which I will paint the wheel sides tomorrow. A very enjoyable afternoon job.

My third love is boating, fishing and the outdoors. Here is a picture of my favorite lake, Caddo Lake in NE Texas.
