Whoa! Hope no one was hurt.
Oh well. Out with the old and in with the new,
I do think however that the old engine house had a little more charm than the new one will have.

As you think, so will you be.

Lynn I hadn't thought about the insurance scam, er, claim. I'll have to check on that. [:-devil]

No one hurt Rick and if you saw the old one in real life, well you might change your mind. It was one of my first scratchbuilds and it wasn't anything to brag about. [:-blindfold]

Mark it does like a nice kit and I'm looking forward to building it. [:-magnify]

Mike, I am a fan of the Pikestuff buildings and have several on the layout (wish Rick did Z scale too).

The Grande Valley will have one of those engine houses in the yard for covered repairs.

Can't wait to see you work your magic on it.

Well the weekend came and went but too many 1:1 projects kept me from finishing the enginehouse. In an effort to speed things up I've called in the O scale guys! [:-jumprefect] The old enginehouse was only meant to be a stand-in so it had no foundation. Here we see Big John fixing that problem:






Meanwhile back at the workbench both N and O scale workers are hard at it:





At this rate it ought to be done by.................................

Mike, I like the colors you painted the engine house.
I never cared for the blue color.
Nice work.

As you think, so will you be.

Thanks, the lighting in that pic ain't the best Rick but it's a light tan with dark brown trim. I didn't care for the blue either.

Dittos on the colors very realistic. I have seen many metal buildings in similar colors. It always helps to have differnt size workers. The little guys can get in the tight places and do the detail work and the big guys can do the heavy lifting and the use the big sledge hammer.

I can't believe how little time I'm finding to work on this. Anyway I got the roof on and the building in place and am working on a road to it and landscaping the place.

Looks great Mike, I really like the colours you've picked for it. Every time I look at this thread I regret selling off my N-scale collection, you've got the perfect mix of realism and charm.
