Thanks, Owen.  It won't be so gaudy once it's dullcoated and weathered.  :lol:

These cars have been dull coated and lightly weathered.



Unfortunately, the weathering paint doesn't show up in the photos. 

The three box cars in the background are waiting for the next shipment of memory wire to arrive.

Luffly!

Opening this on my tablet I had my thumb over the 'wall' at bottom right and had one of those 'Is it a photo?'moments.

Here is a link with more details on how I made the couplers . . .

So here is the motley crew, ready for inspection . . .



I have done some fettling on the box cars.  The Kadee couplers needed quite a bit of work with a file to get them to slide together easily.  O scale is different.  I also put a smear of Vaseline on the faces of the jaws.

The other four will get tidied up in the next few days.

It's obvious now that I will only be able to run four wagons at a time during the operating sessions, due to size restrictions.

I had a bit of a play with it this afternoon.  It was quite fun.

Thanks, Marty.

Yes.  It can still be improved a bit, but I'm confident going forward.  :lol:
