T. Frisch Coal Company (Challenge Project)
Posted by mikethetrainman On 02/27/2021 At 5:56:33 PM
For my next Challenge Project I decided to build a coal dock for my water front. This will fit in #5. I got the idea for this build from a picture of the FSM layout.



It is the building next to the bridge. I don't know who took the picture but thanks for posting it. If someone knows PM me so I can give them credit due.

Air Compressor Advice
Posted by leeflan On 02/20/2021 At 6:06:50 PM
Hey Y'all,

UHHH! Seems my Jurassic-era Craftsman compressor has done gone and bit the dust, plus it's leakin' oil like a rusty flivver. So I'd be obliged for Y'all's advice on a replacement.

Now, I don't do that much airbrushing anymore, just the occasional rolling stock, structure, etc., so I don't need a big, fancy unit. 'Sides, Ah jes' cain't be a luggin' around a 40 lb. behemoth anymore.

So, basically, I'd like something that's: a. small & compact (for my small and compact train room), b. reasonably quiet (so I don't P.O. the Missus), c. lightweight (so's I don't kill my back), d. adjustable pressure, e. oil less, and, hopefully, e. under $200. Oh yeah, and it should be suitable for today's hobby paints.

I've been searching all of the usual online sources and I keep coming back to the Micro Mark Whisper Air Compressor. https://www.micromark.com/Whisper-Air-Compressor It certainly seems to meet the criteria, but I can't find any reviews. If Y'all have any experience with or info on the Whisper unit, or another model that meets the criteria, I'd appreciate your thoughts.

Catch, Y'all later.

Showcase of SRMW Kits Built By Us
Posted by GreggW On 02/18/2021 At 11:25:41 AM
Hi everyone. It is hard to believe, but it has now been five years since Bob Van Gelder retired and I was thinking that it would be nice to make a showcase thread of what we have done with his wonderful South River Modelworks kits!! Thankyou Bob for sharing your creativity and giving us so many hours of enjoyment. We miss you!!

Let the show begin! I will be the first to kick off this thread with a pic of my version of his Thorndike Mills, which is one of my favorites.





I look forward to seeing your many creations.
MDC Climax Kitbash by Steve Turner
Posted by desertdrover On 02/16/2021 At 5:08:35 PM
This oil burner Climax chop was done by member Steve Turner.
He sent me this picture, and with his permission, I'm posting it for all to see.
I'm sure you will all agree with me when I say he did an outstanding kitbash with this locomotive.
He turned the MDC Roundhouse Climax into an oil burner, and fitted the chassis of a Bachmann 44 Tonner to fit as the drive unit. Well done Steve!

to coaltrain. Jeff, first I want to say what a fantastic layout! I have followed your forum on Salter Creek for the past year. I am stating my retirement layout and have decided on Upper Michigan logging & copper mining scenario. my layout will be small at 6' x 16'. I will be modeling the Mann creek ore cars. I am looking for the shapeway templates and parts that you used for your cars.Are they available commercially for sale. Thanks, UPlogger

Hello from the land of the Rio Grande Southern RR. My interest is in card stock models of RGS structures.

Hi all!
I am enjoying these forums a lot. Lots to see and lots to learn! Wish I could spend more time building my N layout, but I'm glad there are folks to keep me enthused!
