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.
Hand Laid Track - As question or two and inspirati
Posted by adrian_batey On 06/16/2017 At 04:30:54 AM
Hi everyone, Haven't visited the forums for a while. To busy with the 1:1 chores

While im working away i have been looking at module construction of a yard for my layout room that is also under construction.

I have obtained a very large amount of precision scale code 70 rail and many bags of ties.

I have been looking for inspiration on hand laid track and going through layout pictures.

I'm curious if Dick Elwells layout is hand laid track work. I find the ties and rail on it to look superb and something i would like to aim for.

Second to this what are some other standard gauge layouts of similar quality i should be looking to for inspiration.
Large scale model of cathedral
Posted by Bill Gill On 06/13/2017 At 07:31:48 AM
I saw this link on another modeling forum. The model is being scratchbuilt by a Brooklyn artist named Ryan McAmis. It is a masterpiece and will take years to complete, but the photos show fantastic work (no hype). You will either be inspired or decide to take up stamp collecting instead of modeling.

Light Industrial Rail Track & Car set build
Posted by desertdrover On 06/02/2017 At 7:42:31 PM
Nothing much to the set, but I have an area on the L&R with a Walthers New River Mining Company structure, and thought a scene of a coal industrial locomotive and string of cars coming out of a nearby mountain area portal into one of the structureís bays, would give some more interest to the overall scene.
I purchased this Walthers HO scale Light Industrial Rail Track and Car set #949-3007.
It comes with the items shown in below pictures. The locomotive, three dump cars and four sprues of track, straights, curves and switches. The kit is easily assembled from the instructions and looks of the kit items. So when completed, Iíll return with my completed build.







rolled roofing over time

The red rolled roofing that Bob Santos recently added to his Buxley's Books project
http://railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=45371&whichpage=92
came out really well. Rather than hijack that thread, here's a short series of photos showing colored rolled asphalt roofing as it ages on a small building exposed to lots of sun, wind and water.

Alexander Coaling Tower
Posted by ocalicreek On 05/31/2017 At 2:05:38 PM
Hello All,

This is the continuation thread for my Spring 2017 Challenge (off the shelf) build, an Alexander Scale Models Fairbanks Morse 100 ton Coaling Station. I have been chipping away at this kit, bit by bit, since the April challenge deadline and I decided it was time to create that follow-up thread I had mentioned there.

Photos to follow...

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.
