BILL'S RAILROAD EMPIRE









U.S. ARMY SCENE


The big red, white, and blue garrison flag waves proudly over this U.S. Army post.

There are two lighted rail sidings, searchlights, supply depots, lighted barracks buildings, a searchlight tower, and a water tower with a blinking warning light.

An observation tower and several anti-aircraft guns help protect this important military site. And, there are several airplanes and helicopters in the air.






I spray painted and lettered the U.S. Army locomotives and cars. Most are olive drab, but several are dark tan. Dry transfers and decals were used for the lettering.

U.S. Army Self-Propelled Rail Vehicle


This fictional military rail vehicle was recently created using a Bachmann Plasser Rail Geometry Car. The gun turret is from a Micro Sonics toy truck. It carries a squad of armed soldiers and protects the vital railroad sidings at the Army installation.







The Army Scene isn't finished. What I really need is another three inches for this scene, but the wall is in the way! This is one of the most popular scenes on my railroad.



Thor Sheil's Military Presence on Model Railroads has an era-by-era synopsis of U.S. military equipment and troops. A great source of information.








A terrific book!
