Terrell,

I am fascinated by your pump house. Was it built from plans? What a neat building.

Mike

Thanks, Ray. Yes, Mike it was built from Southern Railway plans published in a Mainline Modeler magazine.

Phase 7 .

In the summer of '09 I picked up this Galloping Goose from Broadway Limited Imports. Didn't notice until I got home that it was On3, not On30 but it didn't take much to re-gauge the wheels.




Then I turned it into the black Goose.



That got me to thinking it needed a house. So the engine house was born...





...with an interior.

In October of '09 I built this wheel crane using a Walthers HO MOW work crane.

Fred', That electrical outlet with the grinder plugged into it is just too much'...
Talk about details. That is clearly an outstanding detail'. Not often seen in
ON30,or in 1/48 scale. Also, what a nice piece of property in the background of the
beginning shots'..The before and after,{keep this area clean}, is quite amusing.

BTW. I have some Vinegar and steel wool fermenting'...

Thanks, Ted. Good luck with the steel wool soup.

The next step was building this critter and caboose.







She runs like a dream. That is she only runs in my dreams. She does run but not real well even after reworking the drive on it recently. I may try again later, or maybe not.






The bobber has a detailed interior.








At this point, late 2009, the shops builds were completed and packed away on a shelf in the spare bedroom.

And I moved on to other things until early this year.

Terrell,
I really enjoy my visits here. I love your blacksmith shop. And you have the best looking goose I've seen.
Keep up the good work.

Thanks, Bob and Mark !

Taking a giant step forward from '09, late last year or early this year I decided to pull the shops modules off the shelf and put them together into one large module. It measures 7' x 30". The 30 was so I could get it out through the door if I ever needed to. Here's a bare-bones shot of the early stage.




I later added casters to it so I could roll it around a little, mainly pulling it away from the window to work on that end.

This picture shows all the open spaces filled in. And how much added real estate I have for future builds.




Next I start filling in the blanks.

In November of 2009 I built this sawmill. It had On30 track but wasn't intended to be part of the shops, just a destination for somewhere down the line.










After finishing the sawmill I tucked it away on a high bookcase in the living room. Well, that was a dumb move. One of the cats knocked it off, six feet down to a hardwood floor in February of 2010.




But I rebuilt it and put it in the spare bedroom where no cats are allowed by April 2010.

The reason behind this rambling is that when I started putting the shops together I decided to make the sawmill part of the shops. I wanted it to blend in with the other buildings and look more like a permanent structure, so the Wood shop was born.

The Carpenter shop was added next, to compliment the Wood shop. No interior, as of yet.
