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.

Great site!
Thanks for the willingness to share.
I am tracing my family tree and am searching for NAR employee list/staff.
I have a great uncle who was a chef with a railroad gang and in 1940 was somewhere between Rycroft,Arras, and Edmonton.
George McInnis. Don't know if his work took him to the Alaska Highway build, Canol road, or where.
Anyone have any clues for me to search for staff or employee lists?
Thanks again

I came across the site by accident and was THRILLED to see the RR models for the Shirleysburg area. My Dad grew up in the Shirleysburd/ My Union area as did his dad and his dad befor that. My great-grandfather worked for EBT and the only picture I ever saw of him was of that of him standing by an engine. I love the work (though I've always loved model trains). Thanks you guys for bringing this all back to life!

Stumbled on this site and saw my January 1989 RMC cover shot of Phil Chiavetta's layout. Haven't thought about that for a long time. Thanks for the memories!

I look forward to making a contribution hopefully and learning a great deal in the process. A question: is there any information as to the steps to the installation of manual switch mechanisms? As a novice, I seem to be at aloss as to how to set them up. Paul

Hi ya'all...
I have been reading the forums for quite some time, and am very impressed with everyone's entries here! So, I decided to join as a member. I will show you all what I am about, once I progress a little more on my current scratchbuild project.
