Well, it's been a long time since I posted here.
My layout's gone through what I call it's "initial completion" for well over a year, took about 2.5 years to get it looking like this. It's had a feature article in the 2017 On30 Annual, online Trackside Model Railroading, will be in the NG/shortline gazette in March and also the 2018 Annual...
Here's a before shot of the first day the sections were bolted into place in the room, and 3 years later to the day:

And a few more:

You know that I like those hopper kits Lee.
I hope you read the PDF instruction sheet on the website with all the details.
You can add lead sheet for weight under the floors before assembly. Works great.
Good photos.

Great job on some distinctive rolling stock.
Rick Posted - 04/06/2020 : 06:38:16 AM
Hoppers look very good.

Here are some more shots of the new hoppers. They were not easy builds but now they're here, I am glad I handled the expense and effort!

Ever since the pandemic forced us all indoors, I’ve been mostly either working from home, doing whatever house cleaning chores my wife comes up with, or working on these.

They’re laser kits made by On30IMA. They’re quite challenging to work on as a lot of it you just have to figure out on your own, so I built only one at first, to use as a guide to building the rest. I’m glad I did that. The remaining 4 I have (two more shorties and two ‘normal’ length) were done in an assembly line manner, all repetitive tasks for each type of part for each car. Now, the subassemblies are done and I need to put them all together into the shape of ET&WNC hopper cars. I’ll be happy when these are done, as I’ve always wanted some of the Tweetsie’s ubiquitous wood hoppers but before recently nobody made them in O scale. There are at least two people I know who’ll make them as 3D prints, but only in O scale. Heck, I’d have paid a premium price for these as one piece, but nobody wanted to take the money. The kits aren’t exactly cheap, but once they’re done, I think they’ll be worth it. Only one (the near on in this photo) will not be carrying a load. They need weights and there’s NO place to put them but inside without being seen. So I did the detailed interior bottoms of the one, and the rest will permanently carry coal loads.

Nicely detailed layout.

Tyson Rayles Posted - 03/15/2020 : 09:29:04 AM
Some how I have missed this thread. Very nice modeling!
Michael Hohn Posted - 03/14/2020 : 8:22:58 PM
Beautiful modeling and photos. That’s a terrific lineup of locomotives.

Congratulations on having your work published.

Those are some realistic looking pictures.

Playing around with the camera again last night:

Caboose 505 trails the afternoon freight to Johnson City, Tennessee while passing through the rural community of Sadie. At the Grindstaff store, the old men ponder the "war across the water," circa 1943...

Meanwhile, ten-wheeler # 12 drifts past the Ensor farm at Sadie, Tennessee one late sweltering afternoon in August, 1943, heading for Johnson City and a much-needed meal for the crew:

Here are some new shots. The layout is in the White River Narrow Gauge modelling calendar this year (for April), will be in the 2020 On30 Annual and should be in RMC this year...

Notice the number plate on 9 above. I have photos of the actual number plates for ET&WNC 9, 11 and 12, all of which still exist. I then printed them in O scale and mounted them over the so-so quality plates Bachmann puts on their locomotives...

haveing the train behind the cornfield looks neat! Good going.

Nice photography!
