Håkan, beautiful work on your sawmill, and your
Pullman car "Dayton".
It's always nice to visit the California Railway & Navigation Co. to see what wonderful things that are happening here.

Spectacular modelling, Håkan! She's a true beauty! Love the look as she's parked in front of that structure. [:-thumbu][:-thumbu]

Many thanks Greg, George and Mike for the kind words! Now its off to concentrating on the sawmill so I can continue on the scenery. As it is now I can't run the trains on the whole layout.

Despite our progress elsewhere That still remains our yardstick. It's an interesting trait.

I expressed myself a little strangely but sometimes when I work on a project for a long time it becomes more like a chore. Then its nice to finish it and move on to other things. It feels like progress on the layout has halted so it will be nice working on it for a change.

Actually Håkan, I think I understand completely. That's why I have several projects going at the same time. Some just being planed, some under active construction so that one does not become a chore. The only problem with that is having too many to manage and then nothing gets "finished".

I'm right there with you on that. I usually have five or more going. When I run into a glitch, or need to wait while glue, paint, etc, etc sets, I put that one down, and move on to another.

Håkan,
I've just been catching up here in your thread.
WOW! The Dayton would do Mr. Pullman proud! I'm sure it would put a smile on the old guy's face. What did you use as a base for the Dayton? Is that a "broken bull-nose" roof?
While studying the pictures, I took note of all the fine pin-striping (steps, end beams,etc.). Also, the filigree on the sides is exquisite! May I ask HOW you get your LP to perform such works of art? Would it be too much to ask for you to introduce your craftsman to the group? [:-jester]

Regards,

Greg R.

Håkan, the passenger cars look absolutely stunning. All that fancy paint-work sure does make them unique.

looking forward to your continuing build.

I'm happy you like it Greg. It is good to have a small dedicated workforce with LPs. They are very nimble and they don't require much food and lodging space either. Most convenient. They are a little shy though but I managed the other day to take a photo of them hard at work



Håkan
