I've been looking in and admiring everybody's progress (but not telling you all, sorry). So I'll give a general Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!

My HO brass PRR FM flat car reached a milestone tonight. I'm almost ready to tinker the trucks and couplers onto it:



Of course, after that I've still got to do stake pockets, grabs, steps, brake mechanism and piping etc...

The sand drying house is done. I'm starting the last part of the build - the sand tower.

Mike thanks for the kind comment.

James your metal work looks great.

Bruce the drying house looks very nice. That's the best I have seen with the shingles nice and straight.

Nice work James & Bruce.

Have started work on the other side extension.
The roof was made the same as the other one.
And again I've done a mix of shingles & tarpaper.






Painted & weathered.




Trial fit. Again, held on by sliding over a block attached to the wall.




Now to enclose the front of the ceiling section, and add gable trim, rafter tails & legs.


Regards Rob

My current build.
