     That is it,  I'm putting a spotted deer on my layout to show my solidarity to Robert's most excellent layout!


Great idea - my layout is a fall layout - there will be a spotted fawn on it somewhere for the rivet counter that happens to visit.  I will also have an albino deer like the one we were seeing this year deer hunting. That poor deer really needed some snow cover.

John just getting caught up again on this thread.  Beautiful work all the around.



Thanks for stopping by the thread and for the kind words. We are getting into modeling season so I hope to be able to make more progress in the coming months.

Good morning! We woke up to a fresh cover of snow this morning. I love the changing seasons. January 1st I will be ready for it to change back to spring.  ;)   Get well soon to all those that are under the weather - we have a lot of modeling to do. I hope everyone has a great day.

Happy Birthday Jerry!

Thank you to all the forum members that have sent me emails, txt, PM's, and called with sources for detail castings. I have orders out to 4 different suppliers for the detail castings for the Locomotive Works build. I also leaned that Rusty Rails and Rusty Stumps are two different companies, each with their own unique castings.

I thought I saw alot of National Guard vehicles on the road yesterday. Probably security for Jimmy's ride.

Did they have the Brinks truck in the convoy this time?

Thanks again Leo! Very nice.

Hi John:

Very interesting project. I shall be following along. Can't wait to see how it come out.



Thanks -- I have a picture in my head of what this build is going to look like but at our age that keeps changing. ;)   Thanks for following along, we will see where this takes us, together.

I'm just catching up with this build.  Holy Cow!  This is great John!  Your walls are looking fantastic and Frank's concept really works well with the building. Looking forward to watching your progress.


Thanks for stopping by - I'm really having fun with this build.  I have been collecting detail castings for this for years. Lots of belt driven machinery.  Frank's roof design really helped - now it will become my big winter project.  I usually have three builds going at the same time and rotate between them.

Good morning.  Thank you - to all of you that posted, sent me emails, and txt messages with ideas on where to buy the shelf castings for my Locomotive Works build. I have orders in to three different suppliers that had shelf castings that I think will work. I have been sitting in my deer blind designing this build in my head, while I'm watching for deer. ;)   This is a fun time of the year because I get together with family members that are all spread out all over the country, trying to make a living, for some quality time. We meet and stay at my cabin and hunt on the family farm that has been in the family for six generations, now. The sun is coming up so I'm off to my deer blind - I hope everyone has a great day.

Good morning from Northern Michigan.  Raining here again. We had frozen rain last night. I think summer might be over. I have been on the internet looking for some detail castings for my Locomotive Works. I'm looking for shelving for along the wall - so far the only thing I found was at Rusty Stumps. I want lots of tools, oil cans, and machine shop related stuff on them. Does anyone have a lead for me? I know Brett Gallant has them in a couple of his kits but I will need them when I build the kits. I may have to scratch build them.  I hope everyone has a great day.

Very interesting build. The only resin I have worked with is some F&C car kits.


I typically use hydrocal for stone work but it is very sensitive to chipping and damage and this building is going to be right near the edge of the layout. The resin is much more durable and when I paint and weather it I can't tell the difference. The only down side of resin is the cost.

That is a fantastic looking build.

I like the concept of being in the process of construction.



Thanks for the kind words.  If I'm going to put all the work into detailing the interior I want to be able to see it. This is going to be my big build for the winter. We will see how it comes out.
