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

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!

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.

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.
