Interesting film.

I like your camouflage; very true to prototype.

I was wondering if the wheel was used as a brake wheel?

Thanks Larry and Philip.

Frank,
I was looking for this picture but needed to wait until I was at home. It outlines the controls for these little 20 HP Petrol locomotives.

So it was the brake the Lance Corporal was fiddling with. It puzzled me why he'd turn it a bit, then turn it back. Maybe a trick to keep the loco from picking points or square rail joints. Apropos of that, I noticed the Sapper pushing the point of a switch they were dismantling back into position just before the loco passed through without stopping. Oh, would there be shouting if something like that took place at my 1:1 trackwork volunteer job.

The more I dig the more I realize this was a well documented operation. If only color film was readily available.

I have been too busy with some 1:1 family issues to model anything for a couple of weeks. That does not mean there is no progress.

A number of friends have helped me add to the collection of Detail parts and wagons I continue to eat up on the RR.

Philip Smith printed over 1200 detail parts for my on his 3d printer.





Newell Sage hand made 504 screw pickets for me. Here is a sample of the parts that need paint.



In addition to that a friend found me a collection of Wrightlines kits to purchase. This will add another Baldwin 4-6-0 and 9 WW1 wagons to the fleet. All are out of production kits and really hard to find.

Additionally I have settled on a form of benchwork. I ordered 16 feet of N scale T-track modules 20" deep to form the base of the layout. Additional sections are easy to obtain. Once I prove it will work I will quickly add 24 more feet of bench work.

That is all for now.

Yes, this topic has brought me many friends, willing to volunteer, to help the cause.
Help comes in from around the world.

Those screw pickets look great. I'll never forget going to Yrpes in 1988 and saw countless ones still being used at fences in farmer's fields all over the region.

Larry,
Just got caught up. The guns came out nicely. That video is pretty cool, man that is a lot of track behind the lines! You can see the puffs of smoke when the guns are fired.

It is nice to have people willing to help make parts, especially the multiple ones. As we say about the tedious stuff at work, it's god's work.

Those diagrams you have for the locos are helpful, are'nt they.

Scott
