2021 Choices Challenge "Kate's Kitchen"
Posted by Dutchman On 01/21/2021 At 6:43:58 PM
There's often a story. This story starts in the fall of 2014. That fall, the Northeastern Region of the NMRA would have their annual convention in Palmer, Mass. Also in that fall we were having a discussion on the Forum about the Roundhouse 3-in-1 kits. I expressed my desire to get some more of them. Forum member Espen Marsh (trainmarsh) contacted me via PM to let me know that he had several - actually more than several. If I was going to Palmer, he lived not to far away. Plans were made, and I now have 11 of those kits on my shelf - some from Espen, some from shows, etc.

While there, Espen threw in a kit that he was making, I beleive, that consisted of laser cut clapboard walls, a laser cut roof of some terrific material, a package of Tichy door and window openings, and some stripwood. He apologetically mentioned that the instructions were not available, but optimistically said that I should have no trouble putting it together with my experience. We will see.

Looking at the wall pieces, I could see this becoming a small store - like a feed store. However, I need one more structure in my 'grandchild series' and it is for Kate. Hence Kate's Kitchen - a cafe.

This roof material is terrific. It is some type of thin cardstock with a hard-shell finish.



It shows the basic shape of the structure. One would guess a peaked roof structure with an addition off one side.
bar mills springfield depot
Posted by kebmo1 On 01/09/2021 At 5:08:28 PM
i need a depot for the train to bring fishermen to norton's, and the one i had was awesome but took up too much room, so i opted for a smaller depot.
here's the cover of the box:




and the contents of the box:



to eliminate the need for interior bracing art has decided to cut the walls out of thicker plywood. it's pretty thick. 1/8". there are a few castings that came with the kit. a chimney, some barrels and some pretty lame fake gooseneck lamps. a smokejack, a fuse panel/electric meter and a chimney round out the castings. the roofing is "slate". 've never done slate so that should be interesting.

here's the walls painted. i decided to go with traditional burnt umber for the windows, doors and trim, and cableknit gray for the walls.




and here are the walls all trimmed out.
i still have to weather them, add window treatments and back the windows and doors with black paper



the station comes with a prescribed self adhesive platform and base. i think i'm just going to hit it with silverwood, maybe two coats. i don't know.

Choices challenge. Interaction Portable Station
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 01/02/2021 At 5:40:48 PM
Joining the Choices and challenge and taking a break from layout building, I've decided to build the new station for my small town of Blackwater. I got this small Portable station kit from Darryl at Interaction hobbies.



It's a very nice little kit. At the same time I also got the optional detailing kit:




The detail kit comes with the interior parts like the furniture, wainscoting, benches, and a basic lighting kit.

I'll start the build in the next post.
"Choices" Challenge: B&O Tower Kit
Posted by Michael Hohn On 01/01/2021 At 12:19:24 PM
A friend asked if I were willing to built an old kit he bought off the Internet. It's an old Alexander kit of a B&O tower that sat in Indiana.

Here is the box:



The instructions:



The contents:



This will be a challenge to build, as I will explain in future posts.

I chose this simple kit as the first project for the 2021 Challenge here on the Forum.

I picked this kit up at a swap meet some time in the past. The company is now long gone. I saw one of these kits sold on e-Bay last month by a modeler from Holland, MI. He got $18 plus shipping for the kit. It looks like I got a bargain.

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.
