Good morning! I'm on Grandpa duty this morning so I'm working on some F&SM pictures before the grandkids get up. Our tour train is making another run through Dovertown.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning!  I'm on Grandpa duty this morning.  This weeks topic for me is to revisit my mountain scenery pictures in preparation for some more scenery work on my layout. Here is a picture of a small mountain lake in BC.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / News Flash: George is back working on the F&SM
« on: January 27, 2020, 12:29:52 PM »
George Sellios just gave me a call to let me know that he is back at the shop. Moving kinda slow, but back.  He told me last night was the first good nights sleep he has had since the surgery.

He has been viewing the photographs of the F&SM I'm posting from the train mounted camera videos that Frank Baker made. He called to thank me for posting them.

He asked me to thank everyone for the well wishes. He has been following along on our challenge builds - I always know he is watching because he comments on where I'm at with my layout build. He is watching but chooses not to post comments - I think he hates typing after typing all those kit directions for all those years. ;)   

So in addition to George's health news he also asked me to let you know that Stromboli's is gone.  He removed it just before his surgery - he will be replacing it with smaller structures.  George said "it will be a run down part of town". He plans on building all the structures on his workbench and then adding them to the layout after he has fully recovered.

When I try to add a picture in the gallery everything works as expected until I click on the picture to view it.  I want to copy and paste the BB code into a post.  The screen doesn't completely load only get the top 1/3 of what I'm expecting to get. Help again please.

Kit Building / 2020 Build Challenge - FSM kit 145 Coal Tower
« on: January 01, 2020, 01:32:44 PM »
For this years challenge I will be building the FSM kit number 145 Coal tower.  This will probably not be a straight kit build because I plan on making some changes for the structure to fit better on my Superior & Seattle Railroad.

Baggage Car - Daily Chat / I need some help finding a replacement tool
« on: November 01, 2019, 07:53:32 PM »
I spent about an hour today looking for my nail head tool - it was under my workbench. :-[  It is the pounce wheel shown in the picture below. I like it because it makes very small - 2 per board on HO scale clapboard nail holes.  Having it missing made me realize that I should buy another one. I took this picture which shows the manufacturer as RB Productions - I believe this is company is in Ireland. Someone was selling this tool here in the States but I can't remember who I bought it from. I found one European Hobby shop that sold them but they are out of stock. Can anyone help me find one to purchase or remember who sold these?   The tool fits in an exacto knife handle and comes with more than one size wheel.  I found the .75 mm wheel to be the right size for HO.

Good morning! I was surprised that we didn't have a thread going yet this morning.  I'm up and working on the railroad.  It was time for a coffee break.  I hope everyone has a great day.

How many visitors have seen this view of the F&SM. Make sure you use the slide bar to view the whole picture this is a wide angle lens.
