Marias Pass - In Action!

I created a very short video tonight of my Marias Pass layout.  Here is a view from the end, looking over the Flathead River and towards the snowshed.  A string of boxcars is pulled by a pair of warbonnets.  My music selection on my PC right now is limited, but it's better than silence.  The resolution isn't great, but it's a start.  I hope to have better video in the future to share.  Enjoy!

Gotta love those patch units!

I am working on some more patch units, and completed UP #9651, a former SP dash 9.  Although the prototype has since been repainted into UP colors, my N scale version will continue to wear the worn out grey and red.  The rust on the long hood turned out quite well simply using cheap artist acrylics and a micro brush.  Everything else was a combination of airbrushing and drybrushing.
