Very Local Ferroequinology

Thanks (mucho) to Nippon, aka Mr. Fan for the map info from one of his previous posts regarding Hamilton Field trackage. 

I discovered that the area where our apartment complex now stands, which was built in '72, has an interesting railroad history.  I've not been able to find any lingering evidence apart from the spacing of some of the industrial/retail buildings to the south that suggest former trackage (with the map as guide).  From other photos and written accounts of days…

Carolan Pacific Railroad Progress

We made some progress on our N scale Carolan Pacific and were honored with a visit by Tom Barbalet of Model Rail Radio and two friends of his who are visiting from Australia.  I'm pleased with our progress and how things are turning out.  Enjoy!…

'V-why a duck?! 'V-why not a chicken?!

I think that was from a Marx Bros. movie...

Here's a couple of shots taken today on the Carolan Pacific featuring our 500' viaduct that I've been working on.

Carolan Pacific Railroad


Many months since last posting and many changes.  We moved, to the SFO area; sadly had to say goodbye to our beloved Pasito Southern Railroad when we relocated.  We have been working on our new layout, the Carolan Pacific Railroad; this one in N scale and in a format that can be moved.  There's ups and downs for sure and a lot to love.  More on the CP later.

Our move also brought us closer to the historic and modern JPBX/UP line.  In fact it's across the…

Shop Goat for the PSRR

We acquired 101 on our trip to LA last month. It's our first official Pasito Southern locomotive; formerly AT&SF. It's been converted to burn oil; ladders have been added for access to the oil tank and weathered.…

UP 2431

I cleaned the locomotive with Windex on a make-up sponge, while wearing disposable gloves. I do this on all weathering projects to remove fingerprints/dust etc. I masked the lights; windows; the speaker grills under the fuel tank and the area between the truck side-frames including the wheels. I then sprayed Model Masters flat finish.…

Don't get me started about U.P. 4005

Pasito Southern is proud to introduce our newest member in our fleet of locomotives. ( One which I have a particular attachment to.)  Joining 843,844 and 3983.  Wow!

It is nice...

to share model railroading and railfan stuff in general, vice fb, because it is quiet, clean and pleasant like a library.  Not so with the other place. Just trains here and I can relax.
