The Rolling Stock of Logistics.

Another vehicle for the next diorama will be a locomotive, tender and a RR Gun. I have the locomotive and tender complete up to the point of detailing and weathering, and the RR gun is barely started with one of the trucks ready to paint. This is, of course, the Trumpeter kit. I had originally built the Tank Workshop kit and when this came out, discovered that the TW kit was almost twice the size of this and really out of scale!




Here is the BR-52 with base coat. The first two are normal photos, the third enhanced with brightness in Photoshop. The next step will be to lighten some of the larger areas with black plus some khaki drill, Humbrol matt 72, then to the detailing.




This will be on the tracks of the train station cutaway w/tender and K-5 railway gun. Here are two more for this one. I will have a powered unit and a slave unit on the back street of Logistics, fairly damaged but not total wrecks. The model is the box art I've been carrying around for years and a little beat up. It will be the slave unit. The new one in the box will be the powered unit.



Also, I have one of the trucks built for the K5E rail gun that will be behind the tender and locomotive in the cut away train station in the front of the diorama.

I added a lot of detail to the roof electrical system. I found some European trolleys on the web.





I used various data plates and other signage both inside and out from a box I keep those types of things in.













I'll be finishing off the locomotive and coal car soon. The railway gun is started but quite a bit to go. This trolley will have power poles on either end with the wires resting on the upper contact.
