After the bank displaced the package goods store it was to become the anchor for a newly created corner module.



And Skid's, a former stand-alone, was added to keep it company.

I did an O scale waterfront scratchbuild as part of the 2019 Tribute Challenge.

Still haven't got around to building the wharf.




I also modified an O scale pickup truck into a stake-bed truck with lots of extra detail added.

Robert, I like the finish on that building - comes across to me as worn but not worn out.

Morten, you're well on your way to a Personal Diesel Spotter's Guide roster there.

Lots of nicely done power there, Norman! Welcome to the forums! How do you like your new printer with white toner?

Very nice work done here Norman indeed. But, Please elaborate on what type of printer you bought? I have the Alps printer MD-1000, but with hard to find ink, and being an aging printer, I'm looking for a newer one to buy.
What machine do you have? And did you do the white on this locomotive?

@Bill & Louis:
Probably it's a technique / set-up you already know:
a common laser color printer (I have a HP 254md for app. $200) and exchange the black toner with 'Ghost white' toner (it's sold by Micro-Mark in the US). In Germany the white toner was about $220 so app. $420 for printer & toner in total (decals sheets are the common ones for laser-printer, I use 7 and 13micrometer thickness). Well, of course you can order a got amount of white-colored custom-made decals for this - however, I rather have the equipment myself and can use my choice of software to design the heralds, fonts etc. rather than to be limited to the file-types the decal-maker would accept.
Probably the decals aren't as sophisticated as commercial ones - but the model isn't as well done as a commercial one neither. All white lettering (RI locos, Alco & Davenport) were done with system described above - its opacity is sufficient. A bit more difficult is to make opaque light decals (BLW turbine, Ingalls) - I first printed the lettering in white and re-run the decal-sheet with the same lettering in light orange/yellow. Since the sheet-feeders of a printer are not adjusted better than 1/32" you sometmes have to try more than once and maybe ive with a small whitish border where the white and yellow are shifted against each other on the decal sheet (it's visible on the BLW turbine). An ALPS was and is better for sure but with the supply running out and much higher initial costs I decided to go with the white-toner solution and a relativly cheap hp-laser printer. Hope this helps a bit.
Regards
Norman

Norman, Thanks for the decal/printer/white toner info. I had read about the white toner, but hadn't seen 'real' photo examples except for an ad ot two.
Yes, keeping the registration for overprinting on top of a white sublayer must take a lot of fiddling. Awhile back I ordered decals done with double printing to make yellow-orange lettering to go on a dark surface and despite the $$$ printer used
they arrived with some white showing around the edges.

Do your colored decals show any kind of halftone dot or other dithering pattern in close up photos?
