O Scale Bar Mills Shady Grove Gas
Posted by wrongsideofthetracks On 11/12/2017 At 10:02:17 AM
Hello everyone...

Although my own layout is in HO, over the pas number of years I honestly admit that I have been interested in narrow gauge O and O gauge structures. Although I don't have any plans to change - just too much into HO already, I could not help myself at buying an O gauge structure kit here and there and as a result I have a small pile started and thought I might build some dioramas or one large diorama for fun or to have a chance of pace from my HO building and layout.

I picked up this Shady Grove kit from bar mills a number of years back when I was in Colorado and finally decided to give it a go about 8 months ago. This is the first time I had built anything in O scale, but am REALLY enjoying it. Decided to snap a few pictures of where I am at. The small diorama is about 60% complete and I hope to finish it sometime by late summer next year as I just work on it from time to time - here and there kinda thing. I hope to photograph it outside is the summer sun once it is complete.

The main gas station is the simple bar mills kit which looks great. The shed off to the side is from Sierra West in the Dueling She kit. The details are a mixture of VectorCut, Bar Mills, Rusty Stumps, Berkshire Valley, Sierra West, 3D printed stuff from Shapeways, and some various 1/48th scale "military" details from a variety of manufacturers. I have a lot more details and scenery to add. Still need to work on the tow truck and the tree in back as well as well as some other scenery. I am working on a number of other details for it to be added as well. The old signage was all made up on the computer using internet images of old signs. Also some other details from my scrap box and or left over parts, etc.

Like how its looking so far, but a ways to go yet. A couple things I wish I had done a bit differently, but still some time to spend on it.

I am looking for an opinion on their kits. Hopper cars. Or just the quality of the kits in general. Can they be adapted to On30?
Thank you.

Hi all, I have a friend who's changed scale from HO to On30, and he sold me a FSM Barnstead lumber.
So now I have both a FSM sawmill and a lumber yard ...



This tells me that the coming months will be quite interesting.

Hi all!
I just bought this kit:


Got it for $60 (!)
Anyone got any hints on finishing it? Pics?
I will make a diorama on gatorboard to make it easy to incorporate into the layout later.

Heard about this site from a NMRA Div member for building my own stub switches.

I bought a G scale Bachman Spectrum 36 ton two truck Shay locomotive online. It came without an owner's manual. Does anyone know where I can obtain one? Maybe download one? Get a copy of one from someone who already has this locomotive? Any help or advice much appreciated.

Hi Again!
Well I've gone and done it, just sent in my registration. Been reading for a couple of months now. By far the best forum I've found on the net.
