Work has been getting in the way of progress on the Dunes Junction, so it's only fitting that I post a photo of new a-building Washington Metro cars under construction, courtesy MetroForward's Flickr stream and the the Yahoo commutermodeler group. Metro whisks me back and forth to work every day, which ensures that I do get a small hit off the electric railroad crack pipe on a daily basis.

In a sort of sad post announcing the retirement of O scale custom traction model maker Jean Deschenes, Ed Halstead at the Modeling Insull's Empire in O Scale blog posted awesome pictures of O scale South Shore equipment built by Jean.
Jean's retirement ain't exactly premature or undeserved--he's been at it since 1965! Says he wants more time for his ship modeling. And the models look great . . . go check out the post and see for yourself.
|This is awesome stuff. . . very inspiring! Makes me want to go out and build South Shore models!|
