Hi Kumard,

I do really like the lighting and the sunset photo is excellent. I hope you don't mind, but I want to show you what can be done with filters using Photoshop. Your photos are very easy to work with, so that tells me that the lighting is very good. I added a series of the most common filter used in photography, just to show you the possibilities.

Warming Filter #85 at 50% (Golden hues of fading sunlight):




Monochromatic (Conversion to B&W):




Sephia Toning:




A Sampling of Four Other Common Tints:




Take care,
Rob.

Thanks Rob.

All look great. Love the sepia tone. When the locomotives and rolling stock appear I'll try those filters. Still working on the lights and will post more pics with adjusted lighting in the coming days. Btw I'm planning the read your thread next on the Lake Tahoe layout you are planning.

Cowboybilly: Thanks. Your layout too has been an inspiration - especially those little vignettes you have created.

Doc Tom: I'm up to around page 16 on your thread. Just wonderful. Such an original concept and great modelling.

You're welcome and glad you liked them. There's really not much on the Lake Tahoe thread, I am still doing some researching trying to decide what industries to include on the layout. I am only about a quarter of the way thru my resources. I was side tracked with another design project done for another forum member who was wanting a layout for the narrow gauge Cairo and Kanawha Ry in West Virginia. It was a very interesting project.

Thank you very much. The mini layout has been a lot of fun. It is amazing to see people look at this little layout for prolonged periods of time and seek out all the details.

I am sure they will do the same for yours.

Nevertheless i will look forward to following. Maybe you can help me on the planning for the town station along this same line. I'll post something soon.

The depot of Carendt is a lonely outpost many miles from the nearest town. Nevertheless it once played an important role in the local community and for many years was the only real connection to the outside world.


The farmers co-op of Carendt - the lifeblood of the local farming economy. Both the co-op and the depot were built at the same time. Much of the heavy machinery and other items for the co-op are delivered to the depot and brought over by cart (or truck or forklift). Too expensive to refurbish the co-op will close with the railway in two years time

Thanks all.

From today I'm focusing on rolling stock - I'm in the middle of detailing, painting, and weathering the GP7 for the layout.

A final couple of pictures showing the track work under the new lighting. My concerns about the flatness of the colors was unfounded and it seems that all I really needed was decent lighting to make the colors pop.

First boxcar for the layout is nearly done. I'll give it about a 6 out of 10. I'm happy with it but I know I can do better. I have several to do so I hope to get better at using the materials and developing techniques. What I have found is that the difference between a modeled/painted streak and a streak that looks as if created by nature is minuscule. The slightest thing can ruin the illusion - such as streaks that are not absolutely vertical. It's going to take quite a bit of practice!



Here's a view of the depot with depot manager: Janet Amundsen waiting for her ride home. She's descended from a long line of railroaders and her grandfather was one of the first employees on the branch.



Still working on the lighting but I'm happy with it for now.

Hi Kumard: Everything looks very nice ... weathering seems to be coming good. It will be nice to see some rolling stock in the photos. Take care, Rob.

The weathering on the box car is very nice and the streaks quite vertical to my eye. Good job.
