Promoting Excellence in HO Scale Vehicle Modeling

Train Derailment on the KCS - By Thomas Kelly

From Thomas Kelly comes this photo of two Overland Models sideboom cawlers that Tomas decaled with some Cat decals and also replaced the "wire" cables on both with thread. He then sealed everything with Testots Dullcoat and posed them on a small diorama that he took to the KCSHS Convention in June, 2004. The two MOW trucks are from different sources; the front one is a Custom Finishing kit using a Ford LNT and the back one is from Bob Leinbach. Both have KCS decals from Oddsballs. The scene involves a slight derailment that required the sidebooms to set the railcar and locomotive back on the track.
