  • The Sn3 Lakegrove -and- Northern

    Since I'm just getting started in Sn3, I thought that I would start a thread showing my adventures.

    Here are a couple of photos showing my PBL Idler flatcar and my Downtown Deco Fallberg Station-





    Since I am a little diesel kind of guy, I have a few conversions in mind and hope to get started on something within the next week.

    I'll post more later!

              I'm going to the not-so-local LHS this afternoon to pick up a few things to start on the first critter bash. I've given this a lot of thought and the mechanism I've chosen can be converted to Sn3 - I've done the gauge conversion before. The identity will be a secret until I get started on it!

              First though, I want to finish the idler flat. I should be able to get it done this weekend. Man, I love PBL kits!

                It's nice to see one more Sn3er show off his models on the forum, Chuck.

                Despite its rather simple appearance, this PBL flat has a lot of features (such as the structural rails below the outside sills and there pesky brass holders) that make it a 'non-instantly build'. Your model looks very nice.

                  Well - I didn't get the flat painted; sometimes other things pop up! I did get a bit more benchwork finished and I built an OMI C&S boxcar kit. I figured I'll paint them both at the same time!

                  I'll post a pic of the undec boxcar tonight. I WILL get the two cars painted this weekend!

                  The little diesel project should also begin sometime within the next week.

                    Thanks Frederic! Yes, there was quite a bit of work that went into building that flatcar. Now I feel like I need to build another and a pipe gon to go with it!

                      OK...here are two photos of my OMI C&S boxcar. I received a couple of OMI Sn3 kits in trade for my HOn3 ventilated boxcar. This was also a fun build.





                      While taking these photos, I noticed that I forgot the grabs on the walkway. I'll take care of that before painting!

                        Nice work, Chuck. What trucks do you use?

                          Thanks Frederic! The trucks came with the kit. Since the OMI kits were made by Grandt Line, I would guess they are Grandt trucks.

                            Hey, Chuck...That looks like a C&S prototype car judging from the trucks, door, etc. Great looking build and I particularly like the detailing. Hmmmm....I should consider tracking a few of these down.
