Nice one! I guess scarfs and knits were very popular during both wars. Interesting piece!

Hi Larry
I recently bought a special issue of FineScale Modeller magazine, specifically dealing with WW1 topics. Maybe you have it, otherwise I would suggest you buy it.

Regards Rob

Despite the cost of living, it's still popular.

Thanks to all that are following along.

Thanks for the heads up on the magazine Rob.

I have been slowly acquiring parts to move forward.

First up are drives to get my S&D Models Dick Kerr moving on the rails.

The locomotive with the dummy drive



I will be working on fitting the drive and adding DCC and sound next. I have had it running in DCC mode with the White metal engine just resting on the drive. It was able to push a proper number of wagons.

Hmm, I thought I had posted this already but maybe hit the wrong site? Anyway, I thought it would be fitting for you Larry. Found it on the "Canada Remembers" website

Jerry,

Thanks for checking, I have been traveling a lot.

I have done some work, a lot of small set up work for the next phase.

I have learned a new skill in soldering white metal kits, which I need to move forward.

Here is a picture of 4 practice cars I soldered together.




I have a couple of more kits inbound from the UK and Germany that I hope to post details on the builds.

Hi Larry, Mike and I will be in Dortmund showing our layout next week (its a bit of a big show if any body wants to come and say hello just ask for me), we will look around for anything that may be of interest for your layout.

Thanks Neil, I hope you and Mike have a great time. Ask him if he needs an article, and on what. I can start working on something.

What'd you do call a cease fire? Get the war back on.

Frank, The troops are getting ready for the summer offensive.
New inbound locomotive to help pull supplies to the front.
I hope this locomotive gets here in one piece from Germany. It has been in the mail for 3 weeks.



It is a Baldwin 4-6-0 built in the US for British WW1 use.

I continue to follow along, Larry. Neil, the one time I visited Dortmund, it was as an exhibitor at Inermodellbau. The Hub Division layout only had 14 to staff it so I barely got to see a couple of the halls.

The cars look good. What's the secret to soldering white metal?

George
