Well Tyson, you can't really see it in your wide shot, which may be a function of image DPI, but the window looks good in the close-up. I have been debating how I am going to handle the windows I have to deal with on a Walther's structure I have been working on ... for the past year ... and I think I might follow your lead. My building will be just 3 or 4 inches from the edge of the layout.

Joe in the wide shot I hadn't done the window yet! How it would show up from that distance I don't know but in time we will find out. During qualifying for the Daytona 500 I got about 300 more pains, er panes done. Hope to get the rest in this building section done tonight.

Wow, Tyson!

You’re right…I DON’T get over here often enough!

I remember last summer when I got tomeet & talk with you, you were telling me that your modeling had kind of come to a stand-still…You’ve certainly made up for lost time with this effort!

What a fantastic layout!

You’ve utilized all the benefits of N scale here…gotten some big-time railroading into a very modest amount of space!

My hat is off to you sir!

It sure is great to see you inspired & working your N scale magic again!

This is where the building will be when done. I have grafted the two buildings together and cut out the doorway on the far left. I also have finished putting in 500 plus window pains, panes. Naturally you can't see a single pane in this shot . All the stuff on the roof is just sitting there, I'm not sure yet what will stay and where. Same with the tank and pumping station in front.





Before I have never lit my buildings but in my never ending effort to improve my modeling I've decided to light the buildings on this layout. May have to rethink that later . One can't believe how many different little cracks and crevices light can leak out of. been spending most of the day trying to seal these up.

Nice looking building Tyson, the extra details really make a difference. I like the lighting as well.

But Tyson, at least your walls aren't glowing in the dark like mine were.

The Southern's Murphy branch and the Graham County R.R. are great prototypes for a freelance model railroad. I have seen a bit of the Murphy branch while driving the hiway near it several times. I have the Michael George book about the branch. Do you have the book or have you seen it? It is a neat railroad.

Tyson, how did you produce the 1 1.5 volts? A transformer of that voltage or an old power supply? Thanks Pat

Jon I do have that book and it is excellent as is his L & N Atlanta Division book which covers the L & N's presence in Murphy. For the record I live on the Murphy Branch. Yes Pat but I didn't put a voltage meter on it, I just turned the juice up til it looked about half lit. I was wanting a warm glow type lighting effect as the building will be at the back of the layout and the windows are so small in N scale that you can't really see anything inside anyway.
