Well, maybe not the grass, but in 1992, when the BN ran the Hinckly Sub and the Amber Sub-Division the engines certainly were greener. Looking back at some retro photos I realized there were some pretty good lash-ups through Hinckley back in the bay. One set that seemed to get assigned to the coal pool was a nice trio of SD40-2s in different paint schemes, all green... This day BN 7151 was on the point, showing off that awesome white face scheme!

As the winter wears on I find it difficult to make a lot of progress. The projects are stacking up fast. I am working on getting Rush City more complete for the WGH show late in March. I have made progress on the Jasper Masonic Lodge. I got some N Scale glass block windows from Depots by John. I have to say I am very impressed. Most of the windows in the Lodge are frosted glass block, I replicated this my hitting them with some Testors Dullcote. The large fromt windows will not recieve this treatment as they are clear glass block. Soon I will be working on the foundation, fire escape and the roof.
