SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed and Boiler House - O Scale
« on: September 03, 2017, 02:35:04 PM »
Hey Gang,

    Here are the Final Pictures of my diorama that incorporated the SierraWest Tractor Repair Shed and Boiler-House Kits - O Scale. It won 2nd place in the Diorama Category at the 2017 Narrow Gauge Convention in Denver and I plan to bring it to Altoona, PA in November for the Fine Scale Model Railroader Expo. The size of the Diorama is 26 inches by 26 inches. It contains 15 LEDs with two Simulators - The first Simulator is a flickering Welding Light that runs for 30 seconds and then turns of for 90 seconds before repeating and the other Simulator is for burning coals that can be found in the Blacksmith Hearth. The Quad Nash Truck seen on the diorama has both front and rear working lights.

Thanks for Looking!
Alan

PS - A Special Thanks to Brett Gallant of SierraWest for adding his "Magic Touch" to my Diorama Photos by making them look like they are right out of 1929.

What's the big deal here?  All the pictures are old, dark and scratched up.  They don't show anything very well.  Everything is old, beat up and rusted.  So what's the big deal here?



 ;D For those who've stop reading and are looking to tear me a new one... Got'cha!  Alan like I say other another forum.  You Da Man!  You earned all the recognition you can carry in your O-scale dump truck.  Keep on, keepin' on...     Thanx Thom...

Great diorama, Alan, saw your model at the show. Spent some time looking it over. Beautiful. Even my wife loved it.
