That trestle looks great. Love that dry creek bed. Very realistic.

It looks like Bruce's bears are running loose on your layout, Jeff.

That's a nice looking trestle and the stone work is very well done.

Lookin' good Dave. The underside got any detail to it?

Working on a TT scale caboose in brass.

Not much underneath, but apparently the prototype didn't have much, either. (Scaled to 30" from the 3' prototype, Tionesta Valley logging RR). No truss rods, and presumably minimal brake rodding for manual brakes only.

Dave (Deemery) tell me more about your clamping system.

It's just those 1-handed clamps, and the tails are held in place with my shop vise.

Those are the cheapo clamps, I do NOT recommend buying them. They don't work anywhere near as well as the brand name (Irwin) blue and yellow 1-hand clamps.

A bit more progress on the caboose. The end handrails are laser-cut from thin laserboard. I wasn't sure about that idea, but they worked out fine.



HOn30 is alive and well :-)

Nice progress, Dave. Aren't the handrails fragile?

Yes, very nice looking. I like the curvature of the roof. It's very even. Is that a solid piece milled out to fit or a thin piece of wood curved? Inquiring minds.

And a partial assembly to get an idea for the feel of the place:
