With its shorter days and days off, this time of the year tempts the modelmaker to start new projects. I try to resist temptation by beginning the new year with fewer unfinished projects on my desk.

One that has gone unfinished for too long is my model of a Central of Vermont boxcar, actually a modified BTS laser kit of a PRR 28' boxcar. Today it went through the paint shop.



Next step: Art Griffin decals.

Thank you, Bernd. Iím familiar with their structure flats but not their backdrops. Iíll take a look.

Iíd forgotten about this company so I appreciate your suggestion.

Bob, Thank you for the suggestion. Iíll probably try something like that before I do anything more permanent. You guys have given me some ideas.

Mike, tape up a temporary one about 14" high and see if that makes things look better. it should at least improve pictures.

Thatís true, Dave. I have a 2í by 4í portable section of Masonite backdrop intended to cover a window which I sometimes use. But I fear that in a clumsy moment I will let it fall on my layout and wipe out structures and rolling stock.

By utilizing the current backdrop I will have a scene about 4í deep with very little effort. And it will be permanent

Hi Bob!

Thank you for your interest and support. To answer your question, I donít plan at this point having a backdrop on the peninsula. I think it would be a nuisance during operations and would look weird. However, the narrow shelf to the left has a high backdrop which provides a good background when doing photos on the peninsula. I might add a shallow band of scenery along the front of the staging shelf, sloping down from track level, to provide the appearance of uninterrupted landscape in photos.

Thank you, Bill.

I was reluctant at first about doing the shift but knew all along that it had to be done. The work didnít require much more than removing a few screws and two bolts.

The rural end of my layout continues to develop, although at a slow pace. Much of the work has involved pulling up track, but it hasn't been all destruction. To make curves in the wye more reasonable I detached the peninsula and moved it over to the right about 16". That also gave me more space behind the peninsula to maneuver. Track you see to extreme left represents points south, basically staging. Here is how it looks now, with some track mocked up:




Meanwhile, I have been working on a T-Trak module for my local NMRA division.
