  • Well, Foreman George got tired of the crew spending so much time at the creek filling up buckets with water. So he ordered a water tank and pumphouse to supply the needs.

    Phase 6.





    Still a work in progress.

      • Terrell, it just keeps getting better looking all the time. The tank and pump house look great.

        In the previous set of pictures you posted, in the second picture, is that a padlock on the door? If it is, did you make it or was it bought?

        • Thanks, guys. Rick, it's not a padlock but similar to this, which I knew what you called this type of latch. Easier to make.



          Though I did make this one a while back. Out of styrene tubing/rod.

          • Nice photos, once again, Terrell. The pumphouse in front of the water tank is an interesting model, with a nice, not plain, shape.

            These doors are great models, too. The padlock is impressive.

            • Thanks, Frederic. The pump house is made from Southern Railway ( USA version) plans. I changed the type of siding to match the rest of my shops. I also decreased the overall dimensions slightly but the overall design is from the plans. The doors are as shown on the plans and a photocopy of a real one I have.

                Very nice like the way you explain how things were done. I'll be referring back to this thread for ideas.

                  • I'm back after a, longer than I thought, vacation from the shop builds. I decided to rust up the Porter a little more to make it look more like it belongs in the weeds.

                    • Terrell, it's good to see you back at the machine shop. Your rusting of the Porter is outstanding. On behalf of the last picture, I'm afraid she may never see the road again...

                      • Terrell - just beautiful ! You've covered an appropriate area with most genuine looking texture and color. Thanks, again for showing us some of your remarkable work. Bob C.

                          • Thanks, guys! I don't know that I'm really back on the shop builds yet. But this one project has been beckoning me for awhile...so I had to answer the call.

                            You know what I mean.

                            • I'm glad you answered! I like that junk pile! The stacked rails are a great detail.

                              • Terrell, I dont know how I missed this thread, but I must say, everything you show is jaw dropping, not least of all the scratchbuilt machines.

                                How exactly did you make the rust on the porter?
