Any chance of a picture with the structure and boiler together to get a better sense of the colors? I know that there is a open shed for the boiler, but I'd sure like to see what the combo currently looks like. The subtle and controlled knot holes on the walls are great.

Looking great Joe, the knots and nail holes are perfectly subtley defined. All four walls are really looking good indeed.
The next steps are 'fun', I'm looking forward to following your progress on them.

"weather has been terrific the last few days- 65-70*F in the middle of winter." My bags are packed and I'll see you in a day or two.

In all seriousness, the walls look great.
Nice job on the nail holes.
Not too big.

Boiler looks terrific too.

Starting to really take shape Joe.

I agree with the others. You really pulled the nail holes off perfectly.

Hi everyone: Thank you for your kind words and continued encouragement. I probably won't make a lot of progress this week as the On30 Modular Group I belong to is doing a show. It's a 3 day event. I will definately take a picture for you Kris and get it posted.

I'm going to jump ahead to the boiler shed as I have material on order for the base. I wanted to try some Gatorboard; it's similar to foamboard but supposedly stronger? I couldn't find any local so I ordered some from Micro-Mark. Take care, Joe CCCModOn30

Hi: Kris requested a photo showing the boiler and the structure which is attached. The structure is a lot more grayish in natural light than the photo shows?? Comments are welcomed.... Joe CCCModOn30

Hello: As suspected, I didn't accomplish much with the O Scale West train show. The On30 Modular group I'm part of participated and it was a terrific layout and show. I did manage to build the boiler shed parts and have attached a photo. I also received the material that will allow me to start the diorama base so I'm very excited about that.

I've attached 2 photos from the show layout for your purasal. If I'm posting too many photos, please let me know. Thanks... Joe in Morgan Hill, CA

You can never post too many pictures from my point of view.

The shots of the shed and boiler are really helpful in obtaining an idea on how the overall coloring is going. It looks great!. Look forward to more of the build and lots more pictures.

Thanks for the reply Kris. I'll keep the photos coming. I've got the diorama engine house flooring done and will start on the boiler shed concrete foundation today. Joe in Morgan Hill, CA

The concrete is great, Joe. Indeed, simply assembling a few walls gives a totally different look to everything.
