So I wanted to make white decals...
Posted by TC On 06/23/2017 At 9:15:29 PM
I wanted to make my own custom white decals. After some research, I found and purchased an Alps dye-sub printer. That's a start, I guess.

Anyone familiar with the graphic design process for creating and properly sizing custom decal art (in white or any other color for that matter)? What computer programs are used, etc., tips & tricks...

Any advice or instructives would be welcome.
Hand Laid Track - As question or two and inspirati
Posted by adrian_batey On 06/16/2017 At 04:30:54 AM
Hi everyone, Haven't visited the forums for a while. To busy with the 1:1 chores

While im working away i have been looking at module construction of a yard for my layout room that is also under construction.

I have obtained a very large amount of precision scale code 70 rail and many bags of ties.

I have been looking for inspiration on hand laid track and going through layout pictures.

I'm curious if Dick Elwells layout is hand laid track work. I find the ties and rail on it to look superb and something i would like to aim for.

Second to this what are some other standard gauge layouts of similar quality i should be looking to for inspiration.
Large scale model of cathedral

I saw this link on another modeling forum. The model is being scratchbuilt by a Brooklyn artist named Ryan McAmis. It is a masterpiece and will take years to complete, but the photos show fantastic work (no hype). You will either be inspired or decide to take up stamp collecting instead of modeling.

Light Industrial Rail Track & Car set build
Posted by desertdrover On 06/02/2017 At 7:42:31 PM
Nothing much to the set, but I have an area on the L&R with a Walthers New River Mining Company structure, and thought a scene of a coal industrial locomotive and string of cars coming out of a nearby mountain area portal into one of the structureís bays, would give some more interest to the overall scene.
I purchased this Walthers HO scale Light Industrial Rail Track and Car set #949-3007.
It comes with the items shown in below pictures. The locomotive, three dump cars and four sprues of track, straights, curves and switches. The kit is easily assembled from the instructions and looks of the kit items. So when completed, Iíll return with my completed build.







rolled roofing over time

The red rolled roofing that Bob Santos recently added to his Buxley's Books project
http://railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=45371&whichpage=92
came out really well. Rather than hijack that thread, here's a short series of photos showing colored rolled asphalt roofing as it ages on a small building exposed to lots of sun, wind and water.

Alexander Coaling Tower
Posted by ocalicreek On 05/31/2017 At 2:05:38 PM
Hello All,

This is the continuation thread for my Spring 2017 Challenge (off the shelf) build, an Alexander Scale Models Fairbanks Morse 100 ton Coaling Station. I have been chipping away at this kit, bit by bit, since the April challenge deadline and I decided it was time to create that follow-up thread I had mentioned there.

Photos to follow...

I bought a G scale Bachman Spectrum 36 ton two truck Shay locomotive online. It came without an owner's manual. Does anyone know where I can obtain one? Maybe download one? Get a copy of one from someone who already has this locomotive? Any help or advice much appreciated.

Hi Again!
Well I've gone and done it, just sent in my registration. Been reading for a couple of months now. By far the best forum I've found on the net.

Hello to all down in S. Jersey. Thanks for the referral to join this group. I thought I already belonged to enough internet railgroups but there is always one better and this one looks like it's got the most to offer. I guess I'll be up late again tonite perusing the postings.
