Rich,

Now itís Farmerís Bank and Truss.

One aspect of your enginehouse and sheds Iíve noticed is the coloring and weathering of the siding. It looks very good to my eye.

Mike

awesome work. I see quite a few techniques I plan on filing away, especially the doors. Excellent work!

Wow!
What an incredible build/pictorial. Just love all the attention to detail.

Some really cool ideas here for sure. Thanx Thom...

Rich I'm all in for this engine house project of yours. And that critter is the best.

Rich I LIKE that code 100 flex track.

Especially the ties with that deep grain.

Many times I have considered going old school and using it removing every other tie.

I still might.

Thanks Michael,

The siding on the two end sheds are just A & I and Hunterline Driftwood stain, very light on the stain. I wanted and old look, with no paint. Like it was built with leftover wood and repaired in places.

Thanks for the nice comments, Thom, I really appreciate it. I try to get better with every build I do, but I have been watching you work too and I like how you build as well.

Frank Palmer, WOW! Nice comments from the Suncoast Center! I should have made this 1:20 for you to display! You can acquire one of these critter engines if you like it that much. There may be a few left for sale. Thanks

Thanks Dave, I thought of laying hand-laid track, but I want a good clean run especially if I am using this as a test track. I didn't use flex track, it was two straight pieces of 9" track. I covered the whole two pieces of track to the ends of the base because a lot of guys don't think that code 100, plastic track shows authenticity.

Rich, great job on your build. I love the critter you acquired. Also you gave me some ideas for door construction.

I'm currently attending to my roof construction.
In the following picture, if you look at the top of the two shed's roof, near the end of the engine house, you see a space of daylight.



To fix this,I added a 2x8 inside near the edge of the roof, glued to the removable roof, not the building.

I also added some pieces of 3x4 wood to all four sides underneath the roof. These pieces lie flat and when the removable roof is placed on the structure, the roof stays in place, and will not slide over the edges. I gave it an extra 3" leeway to be able to place it where it belongs.



I added a floor to the inside of the remaining shed.



Thanks for looking. Comments are welcome.

Rich
