With its shorter days and days off, this time of the year tempts the modelmaker to start new projects. I try to resist temptation by beginning the new year with fewer unfinished projects on my desk.

One that has gone unfinished for too long is my model of a Central of Vermont boxcar, actually a modified BTS laser kit of a PRR 28' boxcar. Today it went through the paint shop.

Next step: Art Griffin decals.

Thank you, Bill. Also, I appreciate the suggestion; it makes a lot of sense and gives me another option.

Bill Gill Posted - 03/20/2019 : 12:52:07 PM
Mike, nice view of the lumber yard. Another way to make lumber stacks that John Nehrich came up with is to get Evergreen 0.02" thick freight car scribed siding in a couple different widths for the planks.
Cut pieces the length and width of the stacks you want, then on the ends of the stacks cut away slight, but different small amounts off the individual plank ends to give the pile a hand stacked look.
Glue up the height you want for a stack, lightly sand the outer surfaces and paint with flat acrylic craft paints to match the wood(s) of your choice.You can make a lot of stacks from a sheet.

Thank you for your reply, Dave.

I shall now try to keep quiet and be a good boy and avoid drifting Mike's thread.

deemery Posted - 03/19/2019 : 08:39:05 AM
Some of each on my layout. The curved turnouts you see are handlaid (FastTracks). Other places I'm using ME #6. All code 70.

OK Hogger Posted - 03/18/2019 : 10:29:06 PM
Thanks for the pic, Dave. Also, are you handlaying those switches, or are they prefab?

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/18/2019 : 9:59:24 PM
Dave and Andre, thank you.
deemery Posted - 03/18/2019 : 8:10:33 PM
The Narrow Owl Mtn lumber stacks fit quite nicely on my old-timer flats:

OK Hogger Posted - 03/18/2019 : 5:35:42 PM
That looks good, Mike!

Dave: Owl Mtn lumber stacks, eh? I'll need to check that out. Amazing the little tips one picks up in these threads.

deemery Posted - 03/18/2019 : 4:05:15 PM
The Owl Mtn lumber stacks look pretty good, if you sand them a bit (to add wood grain), spray with some sort of matte fixative, and then apply HunterLine driftwood stain. (The fixative gives the stain something to stick to.)

Someone also does laser cut wood stacks, but I can't remember who, right off the top of my head.

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/18/2019 : 2:24:01 PM
Thanks Bob. A new board. Good idea.
railman28 Posted - 03/18/2019 : 1:35:38 PM
Yes, with a nice new board. And get a few customers. But it looks good. I like the layout

Michael Hohn Posted - 03/18/2019 : 1:26:47 PM
My layout was open for the monthly NMRA division meet, and to get ready I did a little scenery and building arrangement for my lumberyard.

Needs more details such as wagons,lumber scraps etc. and I really need to replace that missing board in the fence.

Caboose Hobbies have made two versions, the original was difficult to assemble and was delicate. The newer version is much easier to construct and much more robust.

OK Hogger Posted - 02/02/2019 : 1:33:42 PM

I don't want to sound "negative", but I've read the Caboose Hobbies power routing switch throws are not very durable or reliable. Perhaps some research concerning before commiting?
