I’ve been contemplating the building of a TT scale layout for quite some time now. The original plan was to build the first section and see if I could get it published in one of the major railroad publications. I have instead decided to do an SBS (step by step) and post it to two other forums besides Rail Line Forum, TTnut and Model Railroad Hobbyist.

It’ll be a “sectional layout”. By sectional I mean a part of one scene will be completely built before the second section is started. It will not be based on any modular concept design. I don’t plan on being able to add on to other modules. It will be a strictly stand alone railroad.

I already have two plans on paper for the first two sections. The first section will be based on Chuck Yungkurth’s Gum Stump & Snowshoe Railroad published in the April 1966 issue of Model Railroader. The first and second section will represent a logging line. The third will be a coal mining operation.

I’m going to try a light weight construction technique so the sections can be taken to local trains shows for display.

So let the fun begin in the next post.

Fellow modelers, I've come to a decision on modeling TT scale. I've decided to put it way back on the back burner for now. Does this mean I won't finish the engine house? No, I will finish it, but not right away. The same thing is happening now that was happening back when I was modeling both On30 and HO and it's three gauges. Nothing was getting done on my HO side. Plus the one forum that is devoted to TT scale doesn't have the interested modelers in building anything and I mean anything, even kits. Plus it's quite diversified in the different countries that are represented. It's a bit demoralizing when it seems like you're the only one interested in building something, anything and there's not much enthusiasm amongst the members on what you're doing.

So with that said I'm turning my attention to a project I started back in July of 2014. (link:http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=43142)

Ya, everybody puts up good posts that at times it's hard to keep up with what's going on.

Thanks. I like sharing how to's.

Thanks Michael. I was wondering how I was going to do that. The other thing is the flange on the wooden part that faces out will cover any slight imperfections.

Well I’ve got several other projects going at once. While my CNC mill was busy making a jig I got to finishing up planking the walls of the engine house.

Finished up the window on the other end of the engine house.

Once I got the bottom planked I set up a jig for placing the boards around the circular window. It’s glued to the steel with Ileene’s tacky glue so it wouldn’t move. Also added a beam behind the jig after I took the picture.

Once I got the planking up to the window I needed to put a scallop in the wood for a nice fit around the window. I marked approximately the center.

Next I glued a piece of sandpaper around a piece of brass stock that is the same diameter as the window, ½” dia. and sanded a scallop in the wood.

End result is a nice scallop……..

……that will fit around the window.

The wall all done.

And with the second round window installed temporarily.

In a day or two I’ll trim the excess from the boards, paint the round windows and begin to install the large windows.

Until next time. Thanks for stopping by.

Thanks Dave. That's what makes small detail work stand out are all the little pieces that make a whole.

Thank you very much Bob. I'm always amazed with your 3D work and the resulting brass parts. I was in the machine tool business for over 30 years. To me the machines are second nature.
