Plans needed for Texaco Station kit by Micro-Scale
Posted by BURRETT On 11/19/2017 At 5:34:01 PM
Hello All, I built up a Micro Scale Models kit
#2000-3 some years back and want to use it towards the Master Model railroader award, but lose points as I do not have a copy of the plans. I have contacted MSM but they no longer have the plan file. I also have contacted the seller of the kit now on Ebay, but he does not want to disturb the kit. If anyone has a copy and would scan and send to me in mail or email it would really help me out. Thanks, Bruce in Mount Airy, MD

I've been plugging away at this for quite some time and thought I would share my completed rendition.
O Scale Bar Mills Shady Grove Gas
Posted by wrongsideofthetracks On 11/12/2017 At 10:02:17 AM
Hello everyone...

Although my own layout is in HO, over the pas number of years I honestly admit that I have been interested in narrow gauge O and O gauge structures. Although I don't have any plans to change - just too much into HO already, I could not help myself at buying an O gauge structure kit here and there and as a result I have a small pile started and thought I might build some dioramas or one large diorama for fun or to have a chance of pace from my HO building and layout.

I picked up this Shady Grove kit from bar mills a number of years back when I was in Colorado and finally decided to give it a go about 8 months ago. This is the first time I had built anything in O scale, but am REALLY enjoying it. Decided to snap a few pictures of where I am at. The small diorama is about 60% complete and I hope to finish it sometime by late summer next year as I just work on it from time to time - here and there kinda thing. I hope to photograph it outside is the summer sun once it is complete.

The main gas station is the simple bar mills kit which looks great. The shed off to the side is from Sierra West in the Dueling She kit. The details are a mixture of VectorCut, Bar Mills, Rusty Stumps, Berkshire Valley, Sierra West, 3D printed stuff from Shapeways, and some various 1/48th scale "military" details from a variety of manufacturers. I have a lot more details and scenery to add. Still need to work on the tow truck and the tree in back as well as well as some other scenery. I am working on a number of other details for it to be added as well. The old signage was all made up on the computer using internet images of old signs. Also some other details from my scrap box and or left over parts, etc.

Like how its looking so far, but a ways to go yet. A couple things I wish I had done a bit differently, but still some time to spend on it.

I am looking for an opinion on their kits. Hopper cars. Or just the quality of the kits in general. Can they be adapted to On30?
Thank you.

I bought my first HO model train set when I was 12 years old, had it on lay-away at G&G Model Shop in the Village, Houston, Texas. I have loved trains all my life. My Grandfather worked the old Yazoo & Mississippi Valley RR (with John Luther Jones), I.C., Gulf Division, L&N and retired off the MoPac. He and his half brother owned the Louisiana Southern RR, which ran through the truck farms in Barataria. He had box cars loaded under guard (holding Thompson Sub-machine guns.) My mother went once and it never occurred to her, veggies need no guard, but Hooch does.

Thank you for a great place to enjoy train lore. I have always wanted a wooden boxcar of my own but settled for trips from Chama Co and Durango Co. I live in Trinidad Co and would love to find a door or two off of an old car. To setup in my backyard as a backdrop for pictures. I do this strictly as a hobby as I am retired and gave time to make things happenAny help in locating a door would be greatly appreciated. Thank s

I tried to post this after registering yesterday, trying again to be sure as I believe the topic is important...

If someone is still looking for a link to some of Tom Beaton's work:
http://www.modvid.com.au/html/body_tom_beaton.html

I talked to him last weekend at a show in Chilliwack, BC. He has a folio with his published articles (technical details and drawings) and lots of pics of his work (mostly in other people's hands). I asked if he would like to have it scanned and placed on the net by volunteers. Am not sure if he got the intention but refused, stressing his dislike for computers.

This would be w worthwhile project for the modelling community. If you need me, contact form is on my blog:

I'm looking for a company that can fabricate very small furniture. Specifically, I'm looking for tiny rocking chairs and benches for a model building I'm working on. Can anyone suggest a company? Chairs need to be about 3/4 in tall and 1/4 in wide. Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
