(You have to imagine all the hand waving and deep mutterings as things get built and rebuilt.)

      Oh, what a dilemma!

      You could do an entire magazine article just on a tiny stretch of this layout and at this rate you might just be up and running along the entire length by Christmas. Looking forward to that.


      Ian, there's absolutely no dilemma. This peninsula was the first I ever planned. The very center of the layout, and the terminal too. A wharf of this size was a must, and will be the first thing that catches the eye when entering the room. There are enough sawmills already modeled, with all that fancy interior machinery, log ponds etc, but very few big wharves... I get a chance to model a couple of decent sized ships, and all the trimmings... no dilemma!!

      And man, will this take time to complete and detail

      • Thanks Troels!

        I have to admire not only the speed at which you work but the level of detail - and you work ON YOUR OWN!!!!!! In in this first 'rough' draft which is just to get the major parts placed and spaced, you are working at a fantastic pace. Most people would not achieve what you have in the last eighteen months and I really look forward to each update on the new stuff as it is built.

        Now, off to find suitable brass bits for my new steam punk diesel loco (now, where to put the raygun, hmmm.)

        • Hi Troels:

          Just finished going through all 63 pages of the build on your RR. It's absolutely georgeous. You have a great imagination and sense of design. I just love your structures. I especially like the light house. What did you use for the core of the light tower? I also like the Wool Company. Keep up the great work and let us see some more progress photos as soon as possible.

          Thanks for sharing:

            Karl, I used a cardboard cone inside the tower. If you have the guts, there is a lot about the lighthouse build in the beginning of the 100 page vol. one of this thread...

            • Troels,

              I can't wait to see how you do the harbor and the waves crashing against the wharf or pier.

              Karl,

              This thread is actually two, (163 pages). It started here: http://www.railroad-line.com/forum/t...TOPIC_ID=23577 for 100 pages before the 63 in this thread.

              • Yesterday I promised Mike a shot of the tables and chairs from Scalelink... here they are:




                Today I have been evaluating different speaker setups for the wave sounds for the Teal lighthouse. I'm corresponding intensely with Jim at Fantasonics, who is a perfectionist in the best sense, and am amazed how much control one can have over sound placement and illusion of space. Should be a fine sounding area in the end!!

                • Very nice, Troels. I'm looking forward to see and watch a video of this area with sound.

                  • It's photos like this that make me want to dump all my HO stuff for On30 (along with the fact that the small locos actually run.)

                      Thanks Frederic... this lobster joint will be in the sound mix of the Cranberry Wharf sounds, with ship's creaking hemp mooring lines, and that of the Dave's Corner, with the occasional plane, saw and hammer sounds (all depending of course on a certain mr. Testard getting around to providing me with the outline tracing of the diorama to prepare the spot for the installation [:-devil][)] ) Hmhm...

                          I hear you, Dave. I'm thinking along those same lines.

                              • Leo, the Coast Line RR and my house is always open to members of this forum! You are most welcome!!

                                Tonight I've done some valance testing... I bought a bunch of wide blackout roller blinds today. Black on one side and silver on the back. Cut into three strips lenghtwise I get a good height. First I installed the speakers for the lighthouse waves. A very unusual place behind the valance, but in this case it works... the sound bounces up from the cliffs and watersurface, and the illusion makes the sound seem to rise up to you. Then I hung the valance to hide the mess (I'll tidy the wiring when the dream player is in place too of course).
