Split station house.
Posted by Graffen On 09/18/2019 At 12:54:48 PM
Hi all!

I'm building my layout again after the summer months.
The town of Holy cross on my HOn3 layout is slowly taking shape.
But, I realised that the station took up too much real estate.
I therefore decided to move it to the Isle side of the rails.


The space was a bit narrow though. So, I decided to cut the building in half lengthwise.


That makes it possible to see the interior of it and make it a bit of a show point.


The starting point was an Atlas station.
I cut it in half and used the remaining pieces to make the interior walls.
The cut was painted red to highlight it.
What do you think?
Another Stone in the Wall
Posted by mellow-mike On 09/01/2019 At 5:59:53 PM



Handmade stacked stone retaining wall in HO scale. This was a couple evening's tedious work, using tweezers and super glue gel. I had a sandwich baggie full of suitable pieces - but the time was spent fitting them together like a jigsaw puzzle. They should to be flat on the bottom and top, for the most part. Some were close enough.

I'm building a large (i.e. tall) scenic diorama, and the more I looked at the Chooch wall(s) I have, the less random they seemed. I want that Furlow and Olson look, as if the wall was built from the rock in the area. Not nice blocks brought in by rail. I think I'm quite pleased with the results.

Mexican style roof tiles. Not sure I have ever seen it discussed anywhere.

Am working in O scale, any ideas on how to construct those 1/2 round clay roof tiles.

thank you

Goog Use For Pill Bottles or Spice Bottles
Posted by darrylhuffman On 08/18/2019 At 02:06:40 AM
I waste a lot of time looking for small tools in my very messy work area. So I took some empty pill bottles and glued them to a piece of wood using silicon sealant.


I then filled them with paint brushes, Xacto knives, emery boards, tweezers, files and you can even use them for stripwood.

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!!!

Just found this site I have looked at several threads. WOW! Karl O. is quite the modeler. I have found several tips that I will gladly use.
Just starting on my railroad after waiting for years for the spare time, spare $ & spare room. LOL (Honest Honey; I'll only spend about an hour a week in there.
Once I get something really going I'm sure I'll register and make some posts.
