Curious about the 2 lines in the prototype.
One with the troops, the sleepers are clearly exposed. The other one they're buried. Or is that not a railway line ?



There is a passing siding in the picture. Two tracks. Ballast was not readily available and if the track had to be re-laid for some reason; such as expulsions or replacing lighter set track to allow steam engine access. The new track might not get ballast right away. Often they had to use chalk as ballast for a nice white look.

When I say set track I believe the track for the first train sets found a prototype in WW1. The track cam in prebuilt pieces to quickly lay. The pieces actually slid together

Today’s adventure. Every bogie (20) eventually will have 17 parts added, need 10 holes drilled, 9 cuts, all parts straightened and many bad words. This is my beach seclusion project this week. Glad the sound of the ocean calms me down. Building these assembly line style. I included a picture of the instructions. I skip a few things.
More to follow.





In case you are wondering - these will go on some upcoming scratch build projects.

Philip,
These are what we call trucks. 2 per car (Wagon) They are almost impossible to find, but needed for all the scratch built equipment I need. I acquired this batch from Australia. Yes I have had a drink or two already.

Here is a sample of a finished set. They were multi purpose and were placed under freight cars or used as disconnects.

You certainly don’t do anything by half, Larry. When built the bogies make beautiful models.

Thanks Mike, Philip. Mike and Tyson and all the others on the previous page I missed.

Thanks Yannis,
I have a stack of WW1 plane kits. I want one crashed, one being moved in parts back to the rear and one in the air. I just need more modeling time to get it all done.

Thanks Ted.

Beach isolation project for tonight. Starting to bash a possible field modification WW1 Track repair car. The Canadians rail crews did custom one off cars that were seldom photographed. Parts from three kits so far. It is the one on the right side. of the photo.



Some parts before cuts.

Your search for authenticity is impressive, Larry.

Being a hearty Canadian, why are you building models when you can be laying on the beach working on your tan.

Larry you have an amazing amount of insider information to these WWI bits. Are you getting first hand knowledge?

Frank
