Larry, you're doing a bang up job on this project.


As you think, so will you be.

Frank,
Nothing that big until I move to FL and negotiate some space in the Museum. If I started that project I have a feeling that Dave would want it to fire live rounds.

Great job, Larry!

Thanks to all who are following and posting replies. I see lots of reads so there is interest in the subject.

I was able to acquire some scale lumber today.
Next Car to build is:






The prcess to build the car will be slow as I will make jigs to build a few of them.

I will try to be patient and take pictures to describe the build process. I have been on a roll with this layout and really want to try not get distracted.

You got that right. OMG those open wagons look worse to ride in than a 40/8 car!

Tarrel. I missed the show so I will have to set the DVR to find it.

I went for a different variant of the Wagon in my scratch build than the plans in my earlier posting. They are the same wagon just different sides.

The Wagon is scratch built with wood, paper, tape, Grandt line NBW and Microscale rivet decals. The Bogies (trucks) are 3 d printed.






This one passes the 3 foot test but not so much on close ups.

I will be making a second attempt in plastic.

This stuff is out of my wheelhouse Larry, but the topic is fascinating, and rarely modeled.

And you're doing a great job!

Jeff,
Thank you.
There is no layout yet. Some pitures are taken on my current layout hiding the gold rush structures. Some are on a five foot moduleIamepulding.
The plan is to make this a traveiling exibit layout. It will be 15 to 20 feet long of exposed layout then staging areas.

Carl B - Thanks.

Thanks Jerry,

Time to move the track forward.

I found a picture of a temporary bridge that appears to be made from ties.




I made a core for the piers from a plastic outhouse wrapped in tape to get the required size.



I finished 12 piers in a few hours.




I know someone is going to comment why did I not stain the ties before building the structure so here is my reason. The bridge would have been built in the last six months with new fresh cut lumber. There would be very little staining, any I do will beat the water lever when I figure that out.
