Pennypacker Barge

Aerial View Of The H.G. Pennypacker Barge

This is a Sheepscot Scale Products kit. This line of kits are very nice indeed! The instructions are well written with lots of pictures.

I consider this to be the nicest model on my layout.

Port Kelsey #17

This brass 0-8-0 is undoubtedly the best running engine I have ever seen. It will crawl as good as the diesels. Naturally, it is also my favorite.

I bought this at a model railroad flea market a few years back. It was very nicely painted, but for another railroad, I forget now which one. I repainted it and re-motored it for the Port Kelsey.

Does anyone recognize the name “Gascoyne“? This name appears in several places on the engine, and I have been told that he was once a well known modeller, I can’t find any reference to him though.

Bachman Spectrum Consolidation Sitting At Coaling Tower

The coaling tower is a Model Masterpieces kit. A very nice wooden structure.

A lot of work goes into a kit like this one, lots of cutting for all those wooden parts. To speed up the cutting chore, I built a simple battery powered chop-saw, which is probably the most valuable tool I have.

Whoever drew the instructions for this kit misread the NMRA ruler, every dimension was out exactly 1 scale foot!
