Campbell Scale's Gran" Ma's House, aka, Grandma's
Posted by mecrr On 09/17/2017 At 9:27:44 PM
I have searched this and The Modler's Forum looking for a build thread of the Campbell Scale's Gran" Ma's House, aka, Grandma's House with no luck. I am about to build the version that was produced while company was in Tustin California. It is the kit with wooden parts in plastic bags (not laser cut). [/size]I really appreciate the opportunity to view someone else's build before starting to see where the problems I am about to face lie. Would appreciate anyone suggestions as to where I might locate a build thread.Thanks in advance

Hello Forum members.

Have you ever seen this? If so, any idea who built it? Thanks

Buchenauer's Garage
Posted by Terry823 On 09/05/2017 At 8:28:59 PM
My father-in-law had a Texaco garage, and my wife has hinted for quite a while that I build a version of it. Well, there is no way that he would ever have let his garage get as run down as the one I built. Sorry, Earl, but I couldn't help myself. I like to model decrepit things.






















SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed and Boiler House
Posted by nextceo On 09/03/2017 At 2:24:03 PM
Hey Gang,

Here are the Final Pictures of my diorama that incorporated the SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed and Boiler-House Kits - O Scale. It won 2nd place in the Diorama Category at the 2017 Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver and I plan to bring it to Altoona, PA in November for the Fine Scale Model Railroader Expo. The size of the Diorama is 26 inches by 26 inches. It contains 15 LEDs with two Simulators - The first Simulator is a flickering Welding Light that runs for 30 seconds and then turns of for 90 seconds before repeating and the other Simulator is for burning coals that can be found in the Blacksmith Hearth. The Quad Nash Truck seen on the diorama has both front and rear working lights.

Thanks for Looking!
Alan

PS - A Special Thanks to Brett Gallant of SierraWest for adding his "Magic Touch" to my Diorama Photos by making them look like they are right out of 1929.

Hi Everyone,

Been looking for the total size of the diorama. its no longer on the SW site from what i can see.

Thanks for the great notes about the Divco Milk Truck. The Woodward Cruise was the first time it was shown since restoration.

Most interesting site, I shall, when my web site comes back on line to place a link to here.

Since 1983 I have sold many kits to many satified cusomters, however due to the tough economic times and the deluge of modeling equipment dumped onto the modeling market, most customers cannot make up their mind as what to buy and purchase nothing.

Remember when, Mr. Athearn and his company would announce a new car type about once each year. The new car would be manufactured in ten road names and priced within the means of common modelers.

Now everybody in the marketplace is scrambling to put out as much and more than the buying public can swallow. Note as well the great number of model railroad stores simply throwing in the towel and exiting the business as too highly competitive and or too much to keep in their modest inventory.

Worse, is the way companies do business, buying a lump trailer full of trains and once sold or out of parts to maintain them, they say to the customer, "That's Tough!"

My business too feels the crunch, and mattering on this year's sales figures will make our mind as to remaining in business or slipping from sight.

This is the second or third time I've visited the site. Its very good and I've enjoyed reading through many of the posts. Unfortunately I do NOT have high speed internet at home, so don't spend alot of time (1/2 of the week) on the net. When I am down near work I do.
I am building the Cascade Div GN prototype in HO scale between Skykomish and Appleyard (Wenatchee) Wa. Time stopped in the fall of 1953.
Thanks again for the site.
