Back to basics....
Posted by UKGuy On 12/08/2018 At 7:37:08 PM
Well its been a long time since I've done any modeling, and definitely many many years since I've done anything like this.

The bench is cleared and kinda clean, I'm in the mood to build something, so, lets see what happens.

This is definitely going to be a re-learning experience... here goes !

Juneco CNR 250 Ton Ice house
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 12/02/2018 At 01:46:33 AM
I recently added a small addition to my layout and now I need to add a few new structures to it. The first will be Juneco's CNR 250 ton Ice house. This was actually one of the main reasons for the expansion as I've had this kit for about 10 years and really wanted to build it.







It's not a large kit, about 4 1/2X 3 1/4" so it's a nice model railroad size. Especially for a home layout.








The kit comes with milled walls, strip wood and a bag of castings. It is pretty obvious that it pre-dates any laser cut kits.
Brick Detail in ď3-D printingĒ
Posted by TC On 11/21/2018 At 7:55:18 PM
Iím not terribly familiar with the 3-D print technology currently available., Iím wondering does anyone here know how fine can the resolution & detail of brick walls be executed? Iíve seen a few examples here and there and the resolution seems a bit ďchunkyĒ and more like block rather than brick at a scale size of 1:87 for example. Thoughts or experiences?
Deep River Vinegar.
Posted by Nelson458 On 11/19/2018 At 8:15:31 PM
This is a scratchbuilt model I did basing the idea off the Builder's in Scale Sassen's (sp?) Vinegar. I had entered it into a contest this weekend at our Indian Nations meeting, which was a 144 Sq. inch requirement, any size or shape, as long as it comprised of 144 sq. inches. There were 6 entries, I came in second.

I had built it a few years ago, but I didn't have a name on it, and the scenery had to be re-done, as my skills have improved since them. I changed a few details and added some, that looked better, and am much happier with it now. The tanks are wood dowels covered in Paper Creek siding. The boiler etc., under the shed is a Woodland scenics set I couldn't resist using. The stone foundation are baby blocks from Dr. Ben's, and plaster was used to fill the entire interior of the foundation with the building built on top of it.

I made the sign by printing it out on a computer and cutting it to size, then to make it thin enough to go on the wall, I turned it over and scraped off the paper by wetting it, then scraping the paper off with an exacto knife. It gets pretty thin, so careful handling is key to keeping it from getting torn.

Some of the pictures below have a newer and much larger tree, this one was added a few days before the show, as I wasn't happy with what I had previously put there.



































More Expansion at the F&SM
Posted by halrey On 11/19/2018 At 11:17:22 AM
Well George has been busy again, this time he has expanded from Fillmore Yard to the windows. He was quick to add, that all of the new structures were already built and on shelves in the other room, that would explain the quick expansion.
He also added a very nice abandoned locomotive and a sweet little water tank to the main line near Beaver Pond.
George always amazes me with the speed and seamless additions and expansions he 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.

This message is for Arizona Dave who posted this last Nov regarding the passing of a Verne Niner:http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=46361
I have inadvertently stumbled across an item of Verne's family (I suspect) that I would like some help confirming if they intentionally donated it (I found it at a goodwill store).If possible get it returned...however right now it is still at the store. It is quite personal so I am not going to mention what it is, however I would greatly appreciate help in the ASAP. I may be contacted ssilvestri@live.com. Shana
