A riot of colour

(CNR RS18 3640 at the St. Williams station)

There’s no real reason to share this photo, other than I like the colours: The white house and RoW fence… green and yellow locomotive… red station… and blue truck. They combine to really catch the eye. Those LED headlights sure help, too.

(Hmm: I just noticed I need to paint the stove pipe casting on the station. It’s been raw white metal since the station was built. I’ll add that to the to-do list…)

  1. Trevor,
    That’s two posts in a row that the photo provided you with a reminder. I find it fascinating that it is the photos that add substantially to our to-do lists just when we think we might be done.

    Nah…it’s a brand spanking new Stove Pipe, you just need a couple of guys with a truck (generally a panel truck), a ladder, some tin snips and a few scraps of sheet metal. After all the weather is to nice for the station master to have lit the stove yet.

  3. UPDATE: I’ve finally painted the damned thing. It took 15 seconds to paint, plus another 15 to wash the brush. And it took almost a month since the original post to get around to doing it. Sheesh…
