Ok Guys Over the weekend I got the rest of the track laid all except to two section going into the Engine house. I will do those when I come to the point of building the House/Shop. The turntable is fully functional. On the far end you may be able to see the two tracks leading into a future car shop. Each spur has its own switch so something can be parked there if needed and not running all the time...

Thanks Guys,
Been really busy the past week but did get a little done. I am planning on using a couple buildings from My Modular layout since I have them.One is the Train Station. I was going to build another but this one already has lights sound and an interior. So why not use it...

I needed to make a new base for it so it will have a new resting place in the layout.I started with a piece of 1/2" blue foam cut to the size footprint I was needing. I then sheeted the top of that with 1/8" balsa. Helps it stay straight and gives me a good surface to glue planking to.

I then made cut outs for the steps. I used 1/2 by 3/8" balsa for the steps.I then cut a whoe bunch of planking. Once cut and roughed up I cut it to 10' scale length. I then ran it through the alcohol and shoe polish to darken it up. Once dry I lightly sanded it. I then planked the whole Station Base with the station in place. This makes a exact outline of the station base so it can be set in place.

Once the whole thing was planked I when back over the planking with a coat of Floquil Concrete and thinner. This gives me a grey color with the darker color showing through...

I am still trying to get the wood weathering down. I'll learn one of these days...
Here are a couple pic's...

Very nice! The color of the planks looks pretty good to me, like they're just beginning to weather.

Thanks again...

I have been thinking of some buildings I would like to add to the layout. I was doing a search for a Freight depot and came across that I really liked.





It was scratch build by Mark Paulson. I found some good photos on his website...

I took the pictures and printed them off and figure out the dimensions for the building. I drew a set of plans for the building. Once I had it drawn I then transferred the drawings to 1/8" foam board.
I am using doors and windows from http://scaleartparts.com/ . Once it was all drawn out I cut everything out and temporarily put it together with tape..

Thanks Bill,
Now that I am going I wish I could go bigger but the only way to go bigger.

Anyway I have been working on my small Depot. I have the whole thing planked and almost ready to install the windows and doors...
