Split station house.
Posted by Graffen On 09/18/2019 At 12:54:48 PM
Hi all!

I'm building my layout again after the summer months.
The town of Holy cross on my HOn3 layout is slowly taking shape.
But, I realised that the station took up too much real estate.
I therefore decided to move it to the Isle side of the rails.


The space was a bit narrow though. So, I decided to cut the building in half lengthwise.


That makes it possible to see the interior of it and make it a bit of a show point.


The starting point was an Atlas station.
I cut it in half and used the remaining pieces to make the interior walls.
The cut was painted red to highlight it.
What do you think?
Another Stone in the Wall
Posted by mellow-mike On 09/01/2019 At 5:59:53 PM



Handmade stacked stone retaining wall in HO scale. This was a couple evening's tedious work, using tweezers and super glue gel. I had a sandwich baggie full of suitable pieces - but the time was spent fitting them together like a jigsaw puzzle. They should to be flat on the bottom and top, for the most part. Some were close enough.

I'm building a large (i.e. tall) scenic diorama, and the more I looked at the Chooch wall(s) I have, the less random they seemed. I want that Furlow and Olson look, as if the wall was built from the rock in the area. Not nice blocks brought in by rail. I think I'm quite pleased with the results.

Mexican style roof tiles. Not sure I have ever seen it discussed anywhere.

Am working in O scale, any ideas on how to construct those 1/2 round clay roof tiles.

thank you

Goog Use For Pill Bottles or Spice Bottles
Posted by darrylhuffman On 08/18/2019 At 02:06:40 AM
I waste a lot of time looking for small tools in my very messy work area. So I took some empty pill bottles and glued them to a piece of wood using silicon sealant.


I then filled them with paint brushes, Xacto knives, emery boards, tweezers, files and you can even use them for stripwood.

Just became a member of this Forum. Thought I'd encourage others viewing the Guestbook to join in on the great conversations going on here. With that I'll leave you with a link to a video of my Garden Railroad Layout in action.

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!
Bill

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.
