Thanks guys. For what it is worth, the roof walks are finished only with black leather dye diluted in alcohol. I roughed up the wood a bit beforehand, first dragging it with a razor saw and then also swiping it with some 100-grit to remove most of the fuzz and also create some finer graining. The knot holes were twisted in with either a new #11 x-acto blade or a dental pick. After I glued them up, but while still in my assembly fixture, I gave each a few good swipes with a worn out wire brush. I also picked at the ends a bit with the #11 before staining.

What's this? Progress on two consecutive nights? Indeed.
Not a lot, but it is moving forward. I glued up the planking on the next two roofs while watching (listening to) Downton Abby.




As before, the roof walks are just resting.

Thanks for the kind words Lars. I am very pleased with how they are looking, though not my recent progress.

Yes, my Gardner boxcars have been stalled for a while. I've been distracted by work and a few other projects, but they are still very close to the active workbench. In the meantime, I have picked up most of the accessory details that I will need to complete them. Once they get back on the bench I should have some something to show for the effort fairly quickly.

Me too...

All I have had time for recently is to cast and add some lead slugs to fill in between the bolsters and the floor on one of the frames. I then glued the flooring in place and mounted a pair of the BVM T2 trucks. Beyond that though, I haven't had a chance yet to even check the coupler height on them or snap a pic. Also, my shop seems to have swallowed up my roof walks. Most annoying. I am sure they will turn up though, as soon as I build another set.
