Some trolleys on the line at the BSMRM

Hi All

Its been busy lately. I am trying to finish up some painting and I used a double action spray brush (Pasche) for the first time in my life. I am not convinced I like it but it sure can lay down the paint compared to my Pasche single action brush with a #5 tip.

I took some pictures at the club and sent some out to club members. One of the regulars suggested I post some so here goes.

Corgi PCC with Q drive, DCC, LED headlight and Miniatronics interior light bar. This is a suburban car at Corinth Street in Roslindale. This is a layover point for suburban cars.

Repainted Bachmann Baltimore Witt with DCC by Tony Tieule and SPTC Boston PCCs 3053 and 3060 with Q drives, DCC, PCC couplers, LED headlight and Miniatronice interior lightbars. The cars are a Arborway Station.

#3053 and 3060 on Washington Steet turning onto Columbia Road in Roslindale.

3053 and 3060 at Interurban Junction turning from the City Line onto the Interurban Line.

3053 and 3060 inbound on the interurban line just after leaving Northampton.

Thats it for tonight. The blogger is screwed up and keeps locking up. I have been at this 10 minute job for 2 hours and am ready to scream.




  1. Charlie,
    Please keep at it, we need all the info on traction modeling we can get ! Blogspot is a bit "finicky" at times, but it generally works well. I've learned some tips over time to make the postings easier. First tip is to add all your photos first, BUT, make sure you add them in reverse order of where you want them to show up. You can move pics around, but it's a pain.
    Once the pics are in, then you can intersperse the writing between pics somewhat easier. You can also upload multiple pics at a time. Contact me offlist if I can help.

  2. HI John,

    I figured out how to go back into a post and clean it up and repost the revised post. Things are getting better.

  3. I just got my Peter Witt back from John Pilling after being converted. The wheels and new pole are very nice. Please keep up the posting. We need more of these blogs to get info out there. And as a new traction modeler. I am looking for all the info I can get. Thanks.

  4. Thank you for sharing superb information. Your web site is very cool. I am impressed by the details that you have on this blog. It reveals how nicely you perceive this subject.

  5. Well I'm most impressed, the overhead in your cover pic is superb. The standard of the models is way beyond my scope....
