W&Q Ry Turntable

I built up my turntable base using srtipwood. It originally was an Atlas RR bridge.
I was going through my narrow gauge modeling photos and came across a view I took prior to painting my turntable....guess it would have been nice with my original post...Oh well....George Dutka

Fuel Tank - W&Q Ry.

Diesel fuel is now available in limited supply on the W&Q Ry.
While building my On30" W&Q Ry. module I decided to add a small diesel fuel tank near the turntable. I only have one steam engine in my roster so diesel fuel is not an issue for me. But when Peter Mumby runs his small diesels over to my module I best have some way to fuel them may at some point need to make it back home. I used an old half HO scale tank car which once was found on my shop track back in the late 1980's. That was on my HO scale Randolph yard article on my yard can be found in the January 1992 issue of RMC.  It has been in storage since then and well deserving of a new life....George Dutka

An overhead view of my old HO scale tank car half which was painted and weathered amost 30 years ago. I did add a piece of wire as a filling hose and some new chalk weathering recently.
