Plans needed for Texaco Station kit by Micro-Scale
Posted by BURRETT On 11/19/2017 At 5:34:01 PM
Hello All, I built up a Micro Scale Models kit
#2000-3 some years back and want to use it towards the Master Model railroader award, but lose points as I do not have a copy of the plans. I have contacted MSM but they no longer have the plan file. I also have contacted the seller of the kit now on Ebay, but he does not want to disturb the kit. If anyone has a copy and would scan and send to me in mail or email it would really help me out. Thanks, Bruce in Mount Airy, MD

I've been plugging away at this for quite some time and thought I would share my completed rendition.
O Scale Bar Mills Shady Grove Gas
Posted by wrongsideofthetracks On 11/12/2017 At 10:02:17 AM
Hello everyone...

Although my own layout is in HO, over the pas number of years I honestly admit that I have been interested in narrow gauge O and O gauge structures. Although I don't have any plans to change - just too much into HO already, I could not help myself at buying an O gauge structure kit here and there and as a result I have a small pile started and thought I might build some dioramas or one large diorama for fun or to have a chance of pace from my HO building and layout.

I picked up this Shady Grove kit from bar mills a number of years back when I was in Colorado and finally decided to give it a go about 8 months ago. This is the first time I had built anything in O scale, but am REALLY enjoying it. Decided to snap a few pictures of where I am at. The small diorama is about 60% complete and I hope to finish it sometime by late summer next year as I just work on it from time to time - here and there kinda thing. I hope to photograph it outside is the summer sun once it is complete.

The main gas station is the simple bar mills kit which looks great. The shed off to the side is from Sierra West in the Dueling She kit. The details are a mixture of VectorCut, Bar Mills, Rusty Stumps, Berkshire Valley, Sierra West, 3D printed stuff from Shapeways, and some various 1/48th scale "military" details from a variety of manufacturers. I have a lot more details and scenery to add. Still need to work on the tow truck and the tree in back as well as well as some other scenery. I am working on a number of other details for it to be added as well. The old signage was all made up on the computer using internet images of old signs. Also some other details from my scrap box and or left over parts, etc.

Like how its looking so far, but a ways to go yet. A couple things I wish I had done a bit differently, but still some time to spend on it.

I am looking for an opinion on their kits. Hopper cars. Or just the quality of the kits in general. Can they be adapted to On30?
Thank you.

Although I model in HO, to this day I often refer to your book
HO Narrow Gauge Railroad you can build. It was published in Model Railroader magazine. One question I do have is quite a few of the figures you use in the book appear to be hand made. For years I have been searching for them with negative luck. Are they formed by hand and if so, how did you accomplish it ? Is there a book on the marked explaining the procedure ? Thank you for any information you can offer.

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.
