SWSM Railroad Camp Scratch Build
Posted by adrian_batey On 02/16/2017 At 5:04:38 PM
Some time ago i had SWSM Railroad Camp. Unfortunately i had to part with the kit and put the money into household stuff but at the time i copied the templates and things to tackle a scratch build down the line when i was ready.

I decided to make a start on the boiler and welding shop this week for something different then my sawmill.

I dont have the correct windows ect but i am trying to capture the feel of the structures.

here is a pic of the main wall (sorry just a phone pic at the time being)

Thomas A Yorke, "Back Roads Buildin's" The Grocery
Posted by quartergauger48 On 02/09/2017 At 1:10:41 PM
On occasion I like to build a kit. This is not a SBS, only the finished project.
These kits are being offered by DR. Ben's, "Scale Model Masterpieces/Thomas A.Yorke Ent.
It is a dental/labstone, denser than hydrocal, and much stronger kit. It takes a little time
and many, many coats of washes to get the labstone to resemble wood. The kit was missing
some parts. I emailed Ben, and he immediately mailed me the parts. No hassle, no questions.
Great service'. A fun little build if you are willing to put in the time required for detailing
and painting. I added real wood slats over the simulated exterior patches. As always, comments
very much welcomed.



















Goldline Products HOn3 Hermosa Creek Bridge Kit
Posted by hon3_rr On 02/06/2017 At 6:42:18 PM
This entry is a bookmark for those who may be looking at Howe Truss Bridge kits or the Goldline Product in paticular.

The Goldline Products HOn3 Hermosa Creek Bridge; kit #GL-100, is the kit for this build.

Since the kit comes packaged in a tube, I've posted a picture of the completed kit from the Goldline Products page at www.goldlineproducts.com
You can see the kit page at: http://www.goldlineproducts.com/HERMOSACREEKBRIDGE.htm

My build of this bridge will be documented at: http://railroad-line.com/forum/topic.asp?TOPIC_ID=44353&whichpage=26


Passenger Platform Question
Posted by Tabooma County Rwy On 02/03/2017 At 2:18:11 PM
Folks, I am part of a crew helping build a large HO layout, set in the 1950s, and one of my assigned areas is building a town - maybe in the population 2000 size or so, to give you a size approximation. To be included is an already built AMB Springfield Depot, which is a nice size, I think.

My question is regarding adding a platform. I know that brick platforms were common back in that era; I'm wondering when poured concrete platforms came into being. (I'm assuming asphalt/macadam wouldn't have been commonly used for a passenger platform back in those days).

To complicate matters, the platform will be about 30-36" long, and (of course) be placed along a (relatively shallow) curve.

So using a commercial brick product, like the new Chooch cobblestone (which, when painted appropriately, work for brick), or Busch or whatever, won't work very well, considering the curve.

On my last (large) layout, and the one before that, I had actually "poured" a platform out of lightweight spackle - then (tediously, laboriously) carved in the bricks by hand. It looked pretty good, and I could do that here, but it sure is time consuming.

Hence the question regarding poured concrete platforms. No overhead roofs or anything needed - just the platform.

I don't think wood would make a good material either, considering the aforementioned curve issue.

Thoughts? Ideas?

Thanks,

Al Carter

thanks

I'm always amazed by how fantastic this site is! The creativity is astonishing and It's my #1 source for finding ideas. (I will confess that before retiring I often dropped by without signing in.... Has my memory failed or did the posting allow printing at one time?)
Thanks to all of you for sharing your ideas and talents!

Sam, There are a couple Raritan River RR employees that I know that may be able to help you. If I can pass along any additional information on an employee with that last name, I will do so. But if your grandfather had another family name it may not ring a bell with any of them. Please check the Raritan River RR Forum for updates or to add any additional information about your grandfather that might help. It is on this site, under Forums, then under Fallen Flag Railroads. I will post any other follow-up and direct anyone with info for you to that forum.

On the forums I can't get pictures to show up where the little Xs are ( you can see I'm not too computer savvy )
