Dave,
You can just cut the trim so the engines can fit in, like CNE did for their West Winsted round house. The round house was built in the 1870s, and the later bigger engines didn't fit.

I got the roof framed, and then styrene removable roof. The framing on the roof includes the hole for the smokestack, and the roof itself will slide over the smokestack and the outside walls.


With the doors open, you can't tell that they're really not long enough :-) But the loco itself fits appropriately.

Looks good Dave. Will really be a nice scene when finished.
I don't think anyone will notice the doors, once all the scenery is built up around the shed & tracks.


Regards Rob

My current build.

Shingles and smokestack. Roof is still removable, I'll add lighting. Plus both roof and walls, particularly the front, need weathering. The ground is done, I filled in with ballast and then a layer of fine dirt, and then applied Deluxe Materials liquid ballast cement. That works great for this kind of application.

That is a nice picture, Dave. The engine house looks very good.

Work-in-progress, "planting" the switcher shed. If the Sculptamold is dry/cured, I'll paint and apply some dirt.

Nice looking Dave.

Is that turn table a kit or scratch built? Looks great.

Turntable is from Kitwood Hills. It's a great model, it goes together well and has a good power transmission mechanism. The problem is that Simon does these in 'batches' and you have to get an order in when he has this particular model available. (http://www.kitwoodhillsmodels.com )

Dave,

Do you have to water? And what type of soil do you use?
