FOS Rust Rock Falls Kit Build
Posted by Kurt Bainum On 10/29/2019 At 8:54:31 PM
Jump right in.































India ink wash was not dark enough to show through the small cracks in the paint so I used wood stain then hairspray before the acrylic white topcoat was airbrushed on. Lots of washing with a small brush and water to soften the hairspray to get the paint to crack and peel. Rust and moss stains are being added with artists' oil paint and then washed with thinner.

DPM KITS poly....resin problems
Posted by hairball On 10/16/2019 At 8:31:11 PM
was reading somewhere that the DPM kits made of polyurethane/resin walls have a tendency for warpage.

Never having worked with it before was wondering what is best glue to use.

If there is warpage whats the method of straightening it out, heat plus weight ?

What about 3/16" wood or aluminum glued to the wall as a stiffener if a lot of warpage.

thanks for any insight

Loading dock height?

Is there a standard height for a rail loading dock? Looks to me like it's about 4' above rail height.

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.

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 )

I stumbled across this website and thought I should leave a comment about my Dad who was a man that lived railroad and dedicated his knowledge to anyone interested in model railroading. Ever since I was a baby, we went on every vacation involved with Steam and rode in many cabs around the US. I have many great memories of my Dad living his Rail Life.

If anyone involved in the model railroad life ever met my Dad, they would never forget him.
