Good afternoon still following along watching all you guys start and finish your awesome projects! Out of all of them I really like the yellow building Martin constructed and the recent turntable by Geez and troels super layout. I looked back to July 12th my last post in the lounge. Dang I take forever to do anything! Still plugging along with the MDC Shay conversion. Have all the wiring done w DCC from a donor ON30 gas mechanical guts trying to mount all the junk and get it done here is a couple of photo. I vote the MDC Shay as the worst mechanical piece of junk to every hit the market! Must have taken it apart and reassembled it 100 times. Run smooth just a little noisy typical of MDC box cab coffe grinders.

Good marning all! Coffee ready brewed, and croissants fresh from the baker too...

Up early as usual... love these mornings with time to read the forum life before walking the dog. Then I'll have to continue with the DVD preparations... I did manage to get some pilings in place for the salt warehouse yesterday though

Have a great day and weekend all!

Good morning everyone and thanks for the coffee Troels.

Another great day starting here but unfortunately, I feel under the weather, so it looks like I'm just going to take it easy today.

Have a great day everyone.

Martin, if you like the wrinkles just keep them... I'd blame the O scale guy who was drunk when he laid the canvas. If I make a crooked wall and other non-conform stuff I usually blame the old Heureka "Tremolo" Arnold, who has worked almost everywhere in my area, and being a fan of the green bottle he has made a lot of not too straight stuff ;-)

Well, Martin, the best time for painting shutters is in the morning
I thinks you'll like the canvas better if it's smooth and sanding it should work.
Troel's DVD is sure to be a sellout. With all the work going into it I know it'll be a platinum album.

Good afternoon all !

Up early as well, must have been about the same time as Troels: 05.40-ish LT.

Just back from work where I had a 'pleasant' meeting with a BIG electric motor and a star/delta circuit which started running CW and switched into high gear running CCW. Happy to report that I won :-)

Now off to the local pub for a well-earned brew and a bite to eat, anyone tagging along ?

cheers, Leo.

Afternoon All, ice tea and other cold beverages are in the fridge, and a snack tray is on the counter.

It's off to WV to visit my mom and my daughter. I am going to stay done on my cousins farm( party place) where he has his winery. I'll sample some of the still drippings.

It is also right along the CSX right of way, so a little train watching.

Philip, the shay is starting to look great.

Everyone have a good week, see you next weekend.

Hi Everyone

My son and I are both on holidays this week so we have started construction on Stage 2 of Silkwood Depot, our On30 Empire. I had bought in some 4X1 and 2X1 timber, double-slotted metal strips and brackets over the past month so we had all the materials ready. Progress has been a bit slow at first with really only two full days of work completed since last Saturday.

The top deck along the left-hand wall of the shed was completed earlier this year with trackwork laid and operational although we still have to start applying the scenery.

We now have installed the double-slotted metal strips and brackets along the right-hand side of the shed and have made the L-Girders to be fixed to the brackets. One pair of L-Girders is almost 3 metres long and the other pair 4 metres long. We also have to construct the baseboard framework across the back of the shed to link up the right-hand and left-hand sides of the shed.

We should get the L-Girders we have already made installed today and then start looking at what we need to do along the back of the shed.

Regards
