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.

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.


Tie Tong or Ice Tong question
Posted by Bruce Scott On 11/17/2018 At 9:22:25 PM
Does anyone currently offer in HO a Railroad Tie Tong or an Ice Tong?

Am detailing a Blacksmith Car. I know SS Limited makes a Blacksmith Detail set but my friend just needs a tong detail.

A neat site...I'm in the process of rebuilding my HO layout...it was dismantled for moving. The SLO&WRR (St. Lawrence, Ontario & Western Railroad) should be up and running again by year's end. Love the pictures...hope to contribute in that area!

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
