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.

Just became a member of this Forum. Thought I'd encourage others viewing the Guestbook to join in on the great conversations going on here. With that I'll leave you with a link to a video of my Garden Railroad Layout in action.

Although I model in HO, to this day I often refer to your book
HO Narrow Gauge Railroad you can build. It was published in Model Railroader magazine. One question I do have is quite a few of the figures you use in the book appear to be hand made. For years I have been searching for them with negative luck. Are they formed by hand and if so, how did you accomplish it ? Is there a book on the marked explaining the procedure ? Thank you for any information you can offer.

I'm always amazed by how fantastic this site is! The creativity is astonishing and It's my #1 source for finding ideas. (I will confess that before retiring I often dropped by without signing in.... Has my memory failed or did the posting allow printing at one time?)
Thanks to all of you for sharing your ideas and talents!
