  • The Gallery: August 2022 "Doors"

    I want to thank Rick for suggesting that we devote a Gallery to pictures of doors: "People Doors", Freight Doors, Barn Doors, Garage Doors, Boxcar Doors, you get the idea. If you have a picture that includes a door (either model or prototype), post away.

            Single engine 'switcher house' using Walt Gillespie's "Rusty Stumps" doors:

            I couldn't find a photo of the custom run doors Walt did for my large roundhouse project (that I documented on another, now extinct, forum.) He made them longer to fit the enlarged opening, when I added additional foundation parts to fit a taller locomotive. I'm sure I have some photos somewhere, but photo cataloging/metadata is not one of my strong points. A nice thing about using the same doors is it gives a bit of a 'family look' even though the roundhouse is a (cast plaster) stone structure.

            Here's the enginehouse and (Kitwood Hills) turntable.

                I was tempted to post this, but found something a bit more topical, instead....

                I always loved their version of "Light My Fire" and "Riders on the Storm"

              I wanted an Automobile box car loading autos for my layout. At the time I could not find any with rear doors that opened, so I made my own.
              I took a Bowser HO Scale Freight Car X31 series PRR #59503 and cut open, with a hobby knife, the rear doors, and made them so they could open up. Then glued another set of doors to the inside of the car doors for visual effect. I used HO scale Classic Metal Works Mini Metals 1959 Ford Fairlane loading into the Box Car for my scene.

                      My photo attachment uploaded but I don’t see any text. What I said was these are scratch built doors for Karker Lumber (Foss Scale Models). I avoid using plastic doors and windows whenever possible.
