Tidying up... finally. After years of neglect, I have tonight vacuumed the Kotcha river mouth and along the right side of the big wharf, cleaned and preserved the rails on the same wharf side plus the two cars on the tracks there. Finally the bay by the river has received a fresh coat of super gloss varnish...

The plan is to continue all around the layout in this way. The process will also include a close inspection and reveal what things need to be done before the railroad can be declared finished.

"Finished" is surely subjective...
But your work is magnificent, Tröels!!

I've shot a little video while test running one of my inside frame Americans around the layout... the thing ran just fine after four years of total neglect, but the gearbox needs lubrication, the sound needs equalizing, and the chuff rate must be quicker... and I forgot to turn on the headlight in one sequence

Very nice Troels, but you still need to get and engineer in that cab. Or was he ducking down when the window view came by?

Love the surrealistic quality of this shot!

I see the world before me ...

A giant plastic (yogurt or ice cream?) cup of tools floating, yay hovering on the water ...

Wait a minute!

Oh no, don't tell me ... the yogurt cup is real and the rest of the world is an illusion? Zoinks!


Cheers,

You are beginning to sound like my wife


Well, in my defense the locomotive spends 99.999 percent of its life at rest, so statistically the cab should be empty Actually I have had trouble finding small engineers and firemen for these americans... the cabs are very tiny.

Somehow the yoghurt container reminds me of this:

(This was moored in Pittsburgh for a couple weeks before migrating south.)

Sounds like a good project for a 3d printer, hmmmmmm! Russ

No, I am no where near as understanding as she is and even much less beautiful.
But your layout is still as stunning as ever.

Thanks Dave!
Russ, there is a possibility that I might get my own 3D printer early next year.... I'll print some crew then :)

And yes, the train shed has been neglected a little again, but not forgotten. I'm resuming track cleaning and general inspection/tidying next week! And I have been setting up a work table again for figure/detail painting and the remaining structure!

OK... If you are going to declare this a completed RR, then when does the next one start and what will be the theme? A mountain railroad?? Logging?? I'm really interested to 'see' what you may have in that creative mind of yours.

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

Thanks Kevin! Sorry for the standstill... I was a little too optimistic in my last posting! Have had a visit from my recurring foot troubles the last few months, so very little painting and no modeling has been done. On the mend now, walking with a cane and painting full steam again. Modeling should begin again soon too ;)

Kris, I haven't declared the Coast Line completed yet... If there will be a successor (with the current modeling tempo I'll be dead before the room is made ready ;) I have several ideas, including a possible non-railroad modeling theme... I have actually begun sketching a little on a possible railroad too, and even been looking at some second hand motive power...but it is way to early to disclose :)
