Very nice looking equipment, Frederic. Your railroad must be very prosperous to make such a large acquisition.

Thatís a beautiful layout that Alex built. I can see why itís been featured in many magazines. Thanks for the link.

It's always great to be able to put a 'real' face with a avatar... Cool that you know Alex as he has done some wonderful work, but your work and layout appear to be right up there with the 'Greats'. Beauty to behold in the too few pics displayed here. You Sn3 gauge guys never cease to amaze me!!

Life is to short to build all of the models I want to.

Frederic,

Spectacular layout and very nice new acquisitions! I especially like your new Class 60...wish those were more readily available for us HOn3 types.

I started this little project as a way of getting my modeling back in gear after moving into our apartment last August. I set up shop on a card table in the basement (of course )got out the tools and scrap 'n parts boxes, and needed something to work on. I decided to start making whatever I could out of parts, scrap wood, styrene, and whatever else I had. It's going to be a one-truck yard caboose along the lines of Kadee's famous single truck logging caboose. Here's the truck, frame, and floor:



Next come the walls, wall framing, doors, and windows.

Peter, thanks for the appreciation about the roster.
Nice work, Russ. That should make a pretty caboose for your Sn3 display.

Thanks, Frederic. What I like about Sn3 is that it is just large enough to allow for almost board-by-board construction. Here's part of the first wall that will have a door. I have the door made with a cut out for the window, but have to complete the interior side before putting it in place. I'll get some more work done on it tomorrow night.

Nice, Russ.
Indeed it's easy to do board on board in S scale, be it on structures or on cars. This caboose wall is nicely framed.

Here are some progress shots of my Sn3 yard caboose. The tool box is an HO Cal Scale loco tender tool box that I had in my parts department. The glazing is in, just need to frame out the sliding door and then start adding hardware. The roof will be removable.

Pleasant model, Russ.
As soon as I get my usual computer back, I'll post a photo of a PFM brass RGS business car which I purchased from one of my friends this weekend in Paris.

Very nicely done. The yard caboose sure looks good.

Thanks, Guys. See the red spots on the unpainted sliding door? It's blood from where I poked myself with my Xacto blade! True story! What we go through to build these things, eh?

Russ, why do you bother weathering the inside?

Here are the two most recent pieces of motive power on the Lake Itasca RR & Nav. Co. The RGS Rico business car is a PFM brass model, which I bought last weekend from my friend Michel Foissy (another french Sn3er).



The coal car is a gift from my friend Alex Zelkine.



I'll take shots of the cars in situ on the layout as soon as I have some time and post them in the topic dedicated to the layout.

Alex also gave me back the C19 that he had accepted to improve last summer (you may remember that I had had lots of problems last year with the building of this loco). While there remains some important work, the major mechanical issues have been solved and I should now be able to complete the project. It's a bless to have good friends like this.
