WOW! Eek You've really assembled a sizeable fleet, Gary, and I like the fact that you've also modelled leased cars. Thumbsup Thumbsup

The Texas Division, at peak production, ships out about 30 carloads daily!

docWayne, I've still got about 15 more to do. When I get them done, I'll get together with you and make sure you have all the numbers for the GERN list.

Great looking stuff Gary! My car will look like the first two in your top photo. Excellent assortment and great inspiration! Thumbsup

Great work Gary! I like their realist look! and the Texas Division decals too!

You're giving me ideas abotu recycling a few cars I didn't know what to do with them.

@Doctorwayne: How many cars in GERN's roster so far?

Matt


Re: GERN Industries rolling stock... - doctorwayne - 02-02-2012

I just counted 75, but that will rise when I hear from Gary on his latest round of additions. Let me know if you're interested in becoming part of the GERN family - I have advertising material which I e-mail to all, and I also send along any new stuff as my brother (or other members) create it. I'll need an e-mail address of course, which you can send to me via PM.

Wayne, it's been a while since I thought about getting a few GERN cars on the layout. I have a lot of kits unsuitable for canadian prototype kitbashes. What would you suggest for a 50's theme layout?

It's funny when wild ideas become reality!

Re: GERN Industries rolling stock... - doctorwayne - 02-23-2012

There aren't really any limits to what can be used for GERN rolling stock, and it needn't be limited to any particular era unless that's your preference. My own GERN operation uses boxcars from the '20s alongside covered hoppers from the '30s, '40s, and '50s - I like 'em, I run 'em. Misngth
The most common ones used by GERN modellers are covered hoppers of various types and eras, followed by tank cars, boxcars, gondolas, and open hoppers. For '50s-era cars of a Canadian prototype, TrueLine's slab-sided covered hoppers are probably the most obvious (and most expensive) choice, but GERN buys and/or designs the cars they need. If you've got some odd-ball cars that you like but don't match your favourite prototypes, GERN's your solution. Thumbsup Wink

GERN new 830 30' frameless tank car are out from the shop and ready to roll. This serie was custom-built in 1957 to GERN specifications for Flux Slurry Service. Don't ask me what is flux slurry, it's the by-product of a by-product, but it's good! Some slurry spillage occured while loading it the first time... Can't keep a car clean for a single day!

Is there a roster of everybody's equipment so when I get around to it I don't duplicate somebody else's roadnumbers?
