  • All aboard for Yakima

    2015 - 06.15

    This week I’m heading to Yakima Washington to take part in the 2015 Milwaukee Road Historical Association conference, which will be focused on the very area where my model railroad is set!  As part of the convention there is a modeling competition, so I decided to polish up a few models and be a part of it.  Here is probably my favorite, Bipolar E1 in the experimental Olympian Hiawatha scheme.  Weathered the trucks with Tamiya desert yellow, black weathering chalk to fill in surface details then wiped off, floquil hi-gloss over the whole body, added wires to the bells, white flags to denote a passenger extra.  I’ll have more photos down the line…..
