  • Waterfront Louie's aka Willy's

    For our "2022 Forum Renewal Challenge" I will be constructing my build here, and posting progress pictures to https://railroad-line.com/node/978279#post978959
    As always, I won’t pass up a good RR-L Forum Challenge, or build a structure from Bar Mills. I’ve had this HO scale Waterfront Willy’s kit from Bar Mills for some years now. So, it is a good reason to build it now, after placing my recent fireworks wagon and shack build, at the waterfront area. So, now I’ll add this build to my waterfront as well when it is completed. First and foremost is to change the sign from “Waterfront Willy’s” to “Waterfront Louie’s”. Why? Well, because I can.
    Below is the new Sign picture I made-up, and printed on plain copy paper, and I will be using this for my project. Pictured below, is also the ITT Ocean sound effect unit; HQ520 Ocean, Seagulls- Foghorn I installed, and use at my waterfront area. For years the only thing missing has been structures for this waterfront.

        I don't know about having the sound of squawking sea gulls on my layout.

          This looks like another fun build so I'll be following along on this one.

                Louis,

                      I like the sign that you've made, Lou. Bound to be a great build once again. Your sound module is indeed more relaxing than the one I have that simulates crushed rocks being loaded into hopper cars in my rock crusher.

                          Bruce I'm sure that rock crusher must be used only when needed. A constant sound like that will get to you real quick.

                            Ok, to explain the sign, and how it was made. The sign had to be made first to see how it would look, and fit on the structure front wall.
                            The picture below on the left shows the signs that came with the kit. The center sign shows a picture that was on the Bar Mills website. I took the center website sign and captured it, and placed it into Adobe Photoshop, then I changed Willy’s to Louie’s. The picture on the right was what I came up with for my project. Next I need to start constructing the building.
