That looks very good , unfortunately shipping would make it very expensive for me , but for Americans that would be a much better choice then the MM one.

Kit Building / Rail Scale Models
« on: Today at 05:45:29 PM »
This is the build of Rail Scale Models Branchline Coalhouse. A new manufacturer for me so I am starting with one of the smaller simpler structures to get to know how Steve's kits build .
 I'll place all my Rail Scale Models builds in this thread.


The box.


Manual , contents list and a general manual how to work with lasercut kits. Very well done.


The contents, walls , lasercut doors , plastic glazing , roof material and even the bracing is provided.


There is a bracing diagram in the manual , I did some additional horizontal bracing , you can never have to much bracing.


Peel and stick doors , I like peel and stick in N-scale , makes life so much easier.


A wash of A&I , I did the extra bracing after I saw there was some slight warpage.

Happy Birthday Frank

John , I own the Proxxon KS 230, It's the same thing as the Microlux 50304. From the moment I used it for the first time I wished I  had bought the Proxxon Fet



The motor for the 50304 is only good for the thinnest of woods and is really hard to keep straight , yes the FET is 3x the price but if you can't afford that better to get none at all.

Jan, those Portugal courses look great. Another destination to put on my golf bucket of balls list.


I just finished  a great golf book by John Feinstein, "The First Major", story of the 2016 Ryder Cup and its history. Great background and anecdotes about all the players, and equal treatment given to the Euros. I highly recommend it.

Thanks for the recommendation Mike , on my wishlist at Amazon

Thanks again Tom , what a wonderful little structure and you make it look so simple. I absolutely love the screen doors.

Back from a week of golf in Portugal, you guys have not been sitting still, half a day just to catch up with the threads.

Oceanico Faldo Course Algarve Portugal




Onyria Palmares Praia Course , Lagos Portugal , and yes those are train tracks running through the course , and they are occupied by what I believe are a sort of RDC's

Sorry to hear that Jim, look at the bright side , your layout could have been in the garage, or even worse you or another could have been hurt.

From the warmest day ever in January to one of the coldest ever in February, I wonder if global warming or a politician gets the blame  ;)


Lime street station, saw this layout a few years back , it now has some major buildings on it , hope I can see it in a few years further.
