SS LTD Jennings Lumber
Posted by railfan22 On 05/18/2018 At 7:49:34 PM
I am contemplating starting on the SS Ltd kit for Jennings Lumber and i have read that the new owner of SS Ltd has redone the assembly instructions. Given that this is a complex kit i was hoping to obtain these updated instructions to supplement the older instructions. If anyone has these instructions and could provide copies of them i would sppreciate it. Inwill gladly reinburse for copying and postage. Thanks. Scott Hurley

Breathing New Life Into My Tyco engines & stock
Posted by a440 On 05/11/2018 At 01:50:28 AM
I've been thinking of converting all my Tyco, Like Like and Bachmann locos and rolling stock to Kadee 5 couplers and well as putting in newer and sronger better motors in the said locos, maybe even converting them to DCC. Tips and ideas welcome.
Woodland Scenics Tucker's Bros
Posted by ebergh On 04/30/2018 At 3:56:19 PM
Years ago I built up a Tucker Bros kit as a Machinery Repair shop, and then gave it away... now for the new modules I built up another one, Ben and Jerry's Scoop Shop, incorporating several of Woodland Scenic's castings plus a JL Innovation Brownhoist Pillar Crane. Lots of practice painting! Also made up some decals for crates, etc. Good procrastination project.
Hope you enjoy.

Campbell Richmond Barrel
Posted by ebergh On 04/30/2018 At 3:34:51 PM
Hi
I have finally finished a modified version of the Campbell Richmond Barrel kit... it's hiding in there somewhere! I started out by rearranging the various sections of the building, and then decided to reposition the doors - the kit had a double doorway centered right under the middle of a load bearing upper story wall. That got me to thinking about how I was going to hide the hole... the kit intends you to cover it all in corrugated metal, LOTS of metal! I decided to rip a bunch of veneer into 12" boards and use it for horizontal siding, and use the corrugated metal just on the roof.

I have a friend with a small winery, and used the computer to create a sign from his label. His winery dates back to the Twenties, so I tried to go for a pretty worn, but still functional looking building, in need of repair.

Put too much time into detailing and lighting the interior, including flickering LEDs inside the cressups, that no one will see from outside! Live and learn.

Enjoyable project. Campbell is a good reliable base for improvising.

Build something while the forum is down Challenge
Posted by Ensign On 04/27/2018 At 9:00:25 PM
Hi guys, I don't know how much time I have to promote this idea, before the forum shuts down for the weekend.
So I have this idea that we try and build a small kit, or a small structure whatever.
Since we won't be distracted by having to check out what's happening here, I thought we could try to use our extra time building something.
Then we all show what we have done, when the forum comes back on-line.

What do you think, anybody in?
I'm going to try, and see what I can do.
How about you!

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.

I live in Etobicoke (Toronto ) .

I model in N-Scale , the Pere Marquette Railway as it appeared in the fall of 1949 . The locale is South-Western Ontario . I have started at the fishing village/coal port of Erieau on the North Shore of Lake Erie .

Research is of prime importance and EVERYTHING is and will be scratch built !

DCC Digitrax will be used and my Consolidations will hopefully soon be sound equipped .

I found this site through a link from RMWeb the UK site. Incredibly high standards of modelling - I would like to know if I have permission to use some of the photography on my inspirations page - for inspiration of course!!!
