Station in two versions.
Posted by Graffen On 04/18/2018 At 09:34:30 AM
The swedish narrow gauge station in Ankarsrum in two versions in HO, painted and weathered by me for a friend.
He intends to replace the old with the new depending on what era he runs.

Here is how it looked in the 60's:









The look of it today:









The freight depots, the newer version is the one with yellow doors.:





The shed (now demolished) :



J.E. Morton's Brass and Iron Foundry
Posted by Nelson458 On 04/07/2018 At 10:45:47 AM
I just received an email from Sierra West that the J.E. Morton's Brass and Iron Foundry is ready to order. It really looks super cool, and I know this is said about each of his kits, but I think it is one of his best so far.

Not pushing sales here, just sending a notification. But I just placed an order.
Old Model Plans
Posted by Ambitious Project On 04/06/2018 At 4:59:16 PM
Hey guy's kinda new in here and I did not wish to begin a thread just to find more info on a specific item I am looking for but it's not so easy to find. So I have been looking around for a forum with good model makers in the ranks and this one certainly fits the bill and figured this might be the place to ask.
I am looking for a set of drawings and plans for the Sheepscot "Cats Head Pier" Kit. I found a wonderful thread in here with some great building progress photographs from a Richard Baron who built one of these a few years ago in O scale.. I have tried to contact him through the message options available but no luck yet. Do any of you know Richard or how to contact him and/or do any of you modelers have a set of these plans you'd be willing to make a copy of for me and let me pay you to send them along? I hope it's OK to ask about that in here I don't want to violate any rules about making deals...? We know anyone who has this kit obviously has a set of them but I would think most all of us keep the better drawings in a file for reference after we build a kit also. Thanks in advance Randy
Bar Mills 'The Backshop'
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 03/31/2018 At 8:06:42 PM
Last week I had another modeller give me Bar Mills 'Phineas Cutters sign shop' or 'The Backshop' Kit.







He decided that we should build it as The Backshop. I'll start construction in my next post
Homemade headlight reflector with LED
Posted by Graffen On 03/22/2018 At 2:41:58 PM
Latest project ....
A reflector with light for my narrow-gauge locomotives.
The diameter of the reflector is 4 mm.
The LED is 0.5 x 1 mm!
The reflector is made out of aluminum from oven trays.
I took a nut of the right diameter and slowly pushed the aluminum with the rounded top of the hat from a ballpoint pen.
Then I rough cut the edges and filed it to shape with a needle file.
I then drilled a 0.8 mm hole in the center of the reflector.
I glued the LED to the backside of the reflector with epoxy.
The LED is a bit too white, so it'll get a drop of Tamiya transparent orange.
Then I'll take Microscale Crystal Clear and fill the reflector so it gets a lens.

This is the second or third time I've visited the site. Its very good and I've enjoyed reading through many of the posts. Unfortunately I do NOT have high speed internet at home, so don't spend alot of time (1/2 of the week) on the net. When I am down near work I do.
I am building the Cascade Div GN prototype in HO scale between Skykomish and Appleyard (Wenatchee) Wa. Time stopped in the fall of 1953.
Thanks again for the site.

I need information on a Tortoise switch machine. The switch runs on DC current. Can I also attach AC current for the frog?

Greetings from Germany to the N-Gauge fans in U.S.:

Administrative Edit: the attached photo had to be deleted because of file size restrictions and complications with home page/Guestbook spacing.

Photo shows "modified" Arnold BR 95 in 1:160 which is surely 20 years old.

Hi, I hope someone can provide me with some information on an HO model kit I recently found. It is made by S&E Suzuki & Edwards out of Tokyo. It is a metal die cast stock car. I am told this kit came out right after WWII, which would make it 50 to 60 years old or more. Does anyone out there have any info on this maker or familiar with them? This kit has all its parts and I am just curious if there is a small marker out there that might be interested in such an item, and how much it might be worth to those select few. Thank you

I have known about the L&W since I was a kid in Thomson. The EMD loco is an ex Ga & Fl RR unit #70. It was one of thier originals. There is a blue L&W boxcar parked in the wye with the loco. It has been there about a year. I was in Folkston a few days ago and spotted an L&W box in the consist of a passing CSX train. I drove to Wadley and nothing had changed in the wye. Upon leaving and heading north to Thomson, I caught sight of some boxcars sitting on the L&W main. I followed the tracks to an abandoned junk yard and there sat 4-5 Pickens RR box cars. There were trees growing up around the trucks. They all had roller bearings mounted in the old friction bearing journal boxes. I don't think thats legal now.
