Bar Mills Earls Oil
Posted by Glen Haasdyk On 11/17/2019 At 7:59:31 PM
Time to start a new project



I picked this up to sit next to the Shady Grove Texaco that I built earlier this year. In a way they seem to go together.




The kit comes with a small pump house, a number of above ground tanks, some of Bar Mills Inta-Fence, a billboard and decals.


And a fairly comprehensive 10 page instruction booklet. I'll start building in the next post.

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?
Posted by deemery On 09/30/2019 At 12:40:50 PM
Is there a standard height for a rail loading dock? Looks to me like it's about 4' above rail height.

I came across the site by accident and was THRILLED to see the RR models for the Shirleysburg area. My Dad grew up in the Shirleysburd/ My Union area as did his dad and his dad befor that. My great-grandfather worked for EBT and the only picture I ever saw of him was of that of him standing by an engine. I love the work (though I've always loved model trains). Thanks you guys for bringing this all back to life!

Stumbled on this site and saw my January 1989 RMC cover shot of Phil Chiavetta's layout. Haven't thought about that for a long time. Thanks for the memories!

I look forward to making a contribution hopefully and learning a great deal in the process. A question: is there any information as to the steps to the installation of manual switch mechanisms? As a novice, I seem to be at aloss as to how to set them up. Paul

Hi ya'all...
I have been reading the forums for quite some time, and am very impressed with everyone's entries here! So, I decided to join as a member. I will show you all what I am about, once I progress a little more on my current scratchbuild project.
