  • Nice job Larry. I think you have an idea there setting it between the two pine trees. It will look right at home.

    If your done with buildings what will be next on the RR??

    • Jerry thank you. Yes I'm pretty sure the Office is going to end up between the pine trees. The coal bin will be made narrower
      so that it will fit the area as well.

      Probably the next steps will be finishing up what little bit of scenery that still needs to be done; then move on to making up six
      or so On30 scale flat and box cars. After that maybe updating a few of the early made buildings.

      I do have a small diorama in mind that I would like to build sometime in the near future just for a break from the layout; we'll see.

    • Interesting choice for the roof.
      Nice colors on the roof.
      Only concern is that it doesn't look water tight.
      Removing one of the trees and moving the office back sounds like a good idea,

      • Rick thanks. I have already removed the one pine tree, which I will use some place else on the layout, and the Office
        fits nicely. I may have to run some 1x4's over the joints to make it look water tight like an engine shed.

            • I like what you’ve been doing, Larry. I’m a bit behind in perusing the treasures found in so many place on the RR-L. Quite a log that boy’s fixin to split. I saw a young fellow trying to get ahold of on that relative size with a Bobcat this morning. It was almost as big as the machine…

              I like the look of the roof but wonder if some battens between the boards might keep the rain out. But then, it never does rain on the layout. I’m sure it says so in your Artistic License somewhere in or around subsection 3.6.8a

              • Larry,

                Fine looking office.

                I like the idea of situating it among the trees. If you remove a tree, I suggest that you snuggle it next to the office, out of line with the rest of the trees.

                • Philip and Dave thank you.

                  Karl thanks. Yes the Artistic License is in full force on the CC&W; although I'm going back and
                  add battens to the Office roof just for arguments sake. About the only time it rains is when I
                  spray a 50/50 mixture fo glue and water doing the scenery.Lol.

                  Michael thanks for the tree suggestion; hopefully there's enough room with the coal bin going in; we'll see.

                  • Larry,

                    The office really looks good! Nice scratch build. I like the look of the plank roof and the roofing varieties.

                    • Scott thank you so much. I figured as in the real world, different roofs on buildings would not all
                      be the same; plus I get to learn something new to boot.
