All said and done Greg that brick stacks up very well with your other works.

Gosh, Frank, isn't that laying it on kind of thick? We don't want him to start stone-walling things and running for his crying trowel when we have questions. It's hod enough to keep him on track as it is. We're trying to bond here!

And yes, it does stack up nicely against his other works.

Thanks Mike,Håkan,Frank & Pete!

Håkan,I don't have a track plan yet.Heck I don't even have a layout room yet.
We have lived in our present house now for almost 25 years.
When we first bought this house,I quickly told my wife that I wanted a room in our attic for a layout,and she agreed.
But between raising kids,running 2 businesses and fixing up & renovating this old house.
I just never got around to building a layout here.
We were a host for the Baden model railroad club,at one of our businesses that we owned.
that lasted about 11 years,and then we sold the property.
my better half & I are now planning on building a new house soon.
At least that's what I thought 10 years ago.
It's funny how life gets in the way of your plans sometimes.
I just had to start somewhere for now,and this Magoun pier seemed like a good place to start.
All of my supplies for this layout,can now be shipped to my waiting trains.
How's that for a short answer.

Frank,I'm starting to think I've been a bad influence on you,with my puns.

Pete,what the heck is a crying trowel?
And your puns are worse then my own.

Thanks for looking & your posts again guys!

Greg

C'mon Greg...usually you are of the opinion that the only good puns are bad ones.

Excellent tutorial on painting hydrocal castings. You've come up with a realistic brick color.

All punny business aside, Greg has indeed done a fine job with nailing the brick color.

Thanks Dallas & Bob,for keeping me on my toes!

Hi everyone, a couple of things to report about today.
First,I've been experimenting with my sound system.
I was originally thinking of placing it under the benchwork on one of my shelves below.
I tried this,and discovered that the sounds effects when they are playing,sound like they are not really part of the scene.
The sound effects,sound like they are coming from below this display,not from the display.
So... I've decided to try and hide the speakers inside of the terminal building.
The only problem was,they are a bit taller then the roof height of the terminal.
The only way I was going to make them fit,was to cut some holes into my pier & foam base.
Using some threaded rod,I made up a small under the layout shelf,for the speakers to all sit on.





And this is the shelf below the display, held in place by the threaded rods.





So when I place the terminal structure over the speakers it hides them all.
I will also build some sound baffles to direct the sound effects out through the open doors of this structure.
Even without those yet,the sounds,sound like they are now coming from the whole scene,instead of from under the table.





The plywood pier I had to make a little wider to give me a full 6 inches on either side.
I have also glued & screwed that down into place.
The other thing I did was to glue down the terminal building onto it's own 1/4" inch base plate.
This makes the whole structure much stronger & much easier to work on it.









I also decided to give one side of the pier a little more space for the R.A.SANTOS to berth at.
So just by sliding the pier to one side more,and not being center on the benchwork.
So one side now measures 8" inches and the other only 6"inches.
The Langell Boys lumber hooker is much smaller then the Santos and does not need as much berthing space around her.









That's all for now.
That is,until Dallas & Bob crack that whip again!

Greg

That’s a great lake Lumber Ship you’ve got there Greg. Your choice of speaker location sounds like you’re on the right track.
