  • Excellent looking buildings, James. There are a lot of nice details on the houses.

    • What George said! Kudos to Nid for building, and to you for the rest of the process to show us the results!

      • 181 and 183 High St. foundations in progress

        Thanks, George and Pete. Last night I began foundations for 181 and 183 High St. I think I need to adjust the ground elevation behind 183. And I also need to paint both so I don't have to work around Nid's masking.

        • James,

          I love the architecture; you and Nid are doing an excellent job of replicating NE houses in miniature.

            • Inbound RDC train passes High St. Newburyport

              My wife has finished detailing her High St. structures, and I've airbrushed them. She's done the cleanup, Rapido built the Phase II RDCs, I weathered them and took the photo. I'll post some street level photos in her thread Monday morning.

                  • Thanks, Louis and Scott. My wife has been doing detail painting and fixing little things while I cleaned up the layout for convention tours and op sessions.

                    • As I noted on the Kanthima House thread, these structures are elegant. Very well done indeed! Brava!!

                      • Thanks, Pete. It's been two weeks since Mill City 21 and I've done some railroad work in the past few days. Mostly, I figured out the two turnout electrical problems. One was a switch machine operating wire pulled out of a terminal strip: A 3 minute fix during the Convention if I'd diagnosed beyond shorting the push button with a clip lead. Second was a frog power lead I'd never soldered to the slide switch. But having moved the stuff out from under the staging ladder in the process, I'm resolved to overhaul the staging throat. First I'll adjust the balky switch mechanisms for equal spring force and throw, then I'll reduce electrical resistance on the ground side of the circuit, then I'll take apart anything that' s still balky and make it operate smoothly. All to be done this week.

                        • I like that last picture.
                          Good modeling and composition.

                          • Rick, the model work here really has to be seen in person to get the full Gestalt of the town. "Elegant" doesn't seem strong enough. These are very well done models indeed.

                            James, when you get the yard sorted out, I have a switch on the upper deck that wants to have its "fix" be rendered a "Fix," as in "permanent," so it no longer impacts my main line and Op Session Two, which after about eighteen months will (I hope) follow Op Session One on the railroad. It's only about a seventeen hour drive each way, too, as the border is not open yet, so....

                            • Thanks, Rick. Pete, it looks like that trip gets shorter on Nov. 8;: the shots, a test, then bureaucratic footwork to satisfy les douaniers that traveler, toolbox and auto are fit to pass and repass.
