Interaction Enterprises CPR #2 toolhouse
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 07/19/2017 At 10:56:15 PM
Working on a small toolhouse that I got from Interaction Enterprises about a year ago.

A few years ago I built their large CPR #3 toolhouse, added an interior and lit it.


This one has no windows and only the double doors. I should be able to knock it off in a couple evenings work.

Even though it is a small kit I'm pretty impressed with the detail that was added to the structure, individual rafters and interior framing.

I started with staining all the walls in a pine stain from Testors model FX.

then I painted the exterior walls and trim with Ceramcoat Barn Red. This is my standard railroad structure color.
The trim is made of a thin resin board (also laser cut)

and the interior framing. This too is a resin board. I didn't paint the interior framing so I can see the contrast.
Rapido Switch Stands
Posted by halrey On 07/19/2017 At 4:44:40 PM
I though it would be a interesting project to light one up...
Well, I will say it's not for the soldering challenged, damn nano LEDs are crazy small, .02"x.039".
Rapido made the switch stand kits, which I guess were offered with a switch motor but they also sell them with no motor, they were never intended to be lit. It wouldn't take much to make them operate.

South River Model Works Kits
Posted by Dave S On 07/17/2017 At 8:26:43 PM
I am looking for links to South River Model Works Kits, especially the dioramas built by a modeler who went by the name "Gregg W", I believe. He was a very accomplished and active modeler who built South River Model Works kits and combined them in unusual ways into dioramas. Seems like he stopped posting his builds and dioramas about 4-5 years ago. I recall that he was developing a railroad that featured a small hillside port town with a lighthouse in a harbor. Hope someone remembers him and can help me find some links to his work.

Thanks, Dave S Tucson, AZ

Help!

This may be the wrong place to post this but wanted to get the biggest exposure. I apologize for this!
Since I have been a member here I have used Photobucket for storing and sharing my photos. As of June 1st Photobucket has decided to charge an exorbitant amount of money for users to continue using their service.
Has anyone else experienced this problem?
Can anyone suggest another web hosting site I can transfer my photos to.
I have two clinics in the Classroom, that I will have to repair the photo links to. I'm afraid my other posts will have to suffer.
Thanks

O Scale Buoy
Posted by halrey On 07/06/2017 At 9:15:50 PM
Hi All,

I needed a few O scale buoys for my On30 project (which is moving very slowly by the way) so this is the result. I also cut an HO scale one just to see if it would work, I am still waiting on some fiber optic filament for the HO version, the O scale one has a 3mm slow flashing LED, which looks good.

Oh, and I need more seagull poop on the built up one...

So I wanted to make white decals...
Posted by TC On 06/23/2017 At 9:15:29 PM
I wanted to make my own custom white decals. After some research, I found and purchased an Alps dye-sub printer. That's a start, I guess.

Anyone familiar with the graphic design process for creating and properly sizing custom decal art (in white or any other color for that matter)? What computer programs are used, etc., tips & tricks...

Any advice or instructives would be welcome.

I need information on a Tortoise switch machine. The switch runs on DC current. Can I also attach AC current for the frog?

Greetings from Germany to the N-Gauge fans in U.S.:

Administrative Edit: the attached photo had to be deleted because of file size restrictions and complications with home page/Guestbook spacing.

Photo shows "modified" Arnold BR 95 in 1:160 which is surely 20 years old.

Hi, I hope someone can provide me with some information on an HO model kit I recently found. It is made by S&E Suzuki & Edwards out of Tokyo. It is a metal die cast stock car. I am told this kit came out right after WWII, which would make it 50 to 60 years old or more. Does anyone out there have any info on this maker or familiar with them? This kit has all its parts and I am just curious if there is a small marker out there that might be interested in such an item, and how much it might be worth to those select few. Thank you

I have known about the L&W since I was a kid in Thomson. The EMD loco is an ex Ga & Fl RR unit #70. It was one of thier originals. There is a blue L&W boxcar parked in the wye with the loco. It has been there about a year. I was in Folkston a few days ago and spotted an L&W box in the consist of a passing CSX train. I drove to Wadley and nothing had changed in the wye. Upon leaving and heading north to Thomson, I caught sight of some boxcars sitting on the L&W main. I followed the tracks to an abandoned junk yard and there sat 4-5 Pickens RR box cars. There were trees growing up around the trucks. They all had roller bearings mounted in the old friction bearing journal boxes. I don't think thats legal now.
