G-Town, I can't get over how cool that is. Complete with dunnage, cinch and belly straps, and a tarp!

I'm gonna need to see those BOLs though...

Those are some awesome models, G-Town. Glad to know I'm not the only model railroader on the forum. One of these days I'll have a home with a basement and can finally build my 1916-era C&O dream layout!

Not sure if it is considered a hobby but I collect die cast model ships, planes, trucks, cars. Don't have the patience to build them myself unfortunately.

I like to weld, and garden (vegetables, mostly), neither of which work well on the road, LOL

Not ready to show pics yet, but I’m working on a plate & coil train.

Those are fantastic, G-town! What extraordinary attention to detail. Because you make them yourself, those are probably the coolest models I’ve ever seen, whether it be plane, train, or automobile!

After my divorce in 2004, my HO SCALE model railroad is still sitting in boxes. I had to tear it down when I left. Though it wasn't huge, it was still fun adding to the accessories every 2 weeks. But now it just sits in boxes. Maybe when I'm done with trucking I'll get a house to put it all up in.

I like to play my guitar. I like my new job. Don't have a lot of time for maybe playing but maybe when I go solo. Heck during a live load or unload might be able squeeze in a few minutes. As long as you make your appointments on time and drive safely should have time for a couple of songs. I like read. I also like to write songs. But that's for another discussion day.

I play guitar also, though not nearly as often as I'd like. To save room I haven't had it on the truck with us. But with my grandchildren getting to that perfect age for children sing-a-long songs, I'm going to find a place to stow the guitar so I can stay in practice.

Yeah, I noticed the cargo, tarps and securement as well as the graffiti. I was actually more impressed by that attention to detail than the actual models themselves. I used to work by the tracks in Buffalo, and that looks exactly how the cars that went through.
