      Very nice looking equipment, Frederic. Your railroad must be very prosperous to make such a large acquisition.

      That’s a beautiful layout that Alex built. I can see why it’s been featured in many magazines. Thanks for the link.

        It's always great to be able to put a 'real' face with a avatar... Cool that you know Alex as he has done some wonderful work, but your work and layout appear to be right up there with the 'Greats'. Beauty to behold in the too few pics displayed here. You Sn3 gauge guys never cease to amaze me!!

          Frederic,

          Spectacular layout and very nice new acquisitions! I especially like your new Class 60...wish those were more readily available for us HOn3 types.

              I started this little project as a way of getting my modeling back in gear after moving into our apartment last August. I set up shop on a card table in the basement (of course [:-dopey])got out the tools and scrap 'n parts boxes, and needed something to work on. I decided to start making whatever I could out of parts, scrap wood, styrene, and whatever else I had. It's going to be a one-truck yard caboose along the lines of Kadee's famous single truck logging caboose. Here's the truck, frame, and floor:



              Next come the walls, wall framing, doors, and windows.

                  Peter, thanks for the appreciation about the roster.

                  Nice work, Russ. That should make a pretty caboose for your Sn3 display.

                    Thanks, Frederic. What I like about Sn3 is that it is just large enough to allow for almost board-by-board construction. Here's part of the first wall that will have a door. I have the door made with a cut out for the window, but have to complete the interior side before putting it in place. I'll get some more work done on it tomorrow night.

                      Nice, Russ.

                      Indeed it's easy to do board on board in S scale, be it on structures or on cars. This caboose wall is nicely framed.

                        Here are some progress shots of my Sn3 yard caboose. The tool box is an HO Cal Scale loco tender tool box that I had in my parts department. The glazing is in, just need to frame out the sliding door and then start adding hardware. The roof will be removable.id="Comic Sans MS">id="navy">

                          Pleasant model, Russ.

                          As soon as I get my usual computer back, I'll post a photo of a PFM brass RGS business car which I purchased from one of my friends this weekend in Paris.

                            Very nicely done. The yard caboose sure looks good.

                              Thanks, Guys. See the red spots on the unpainted sliding door? It's blood from where I poked myself with my Xacto blade! [:-scared] True story! What we go through to build these things, eh?

                                Russ, why do you bother weathering the inside?
