Baggage Car - Daily Chat / Happy Thursday
« on: February 15, 2018, 06:32:46 AM »
Enjoying the warm-up. 45F in Chicago yesterday.

I'm looking for commercial HO scale signals. Kits or pre-assembled OK. I saw the thread on scratchbuit thread in the Lighting forum but I'm not looking to do that. Does anyone have a recommendation or maybe there's a more appropriate forum for that sort of topic?

Good morning --

More snow and single digit temps in Chicago this am. Just another day at work and hopefully some railroad work this evening.

Good morning everyone! (Does anyone get to start a daily thread?)

Up early to go to the airport to go to Miami for the day. Bye Bye snow....


Finished Kits & Dioramas / FSM Duffy's Coal Yard

I have never posted a pic before. Thought I would try to start sharing. I can see I have some work to do to get my image sizes skinnied down. I did this diorama a few years ago. Can't even recall how long...five years at least, I reckon. Since then I have been on a long hiatus (aka, "job") and only recently are things lightening up to the point where I can get back to the hobby. I still have a lot of wiring and some track work to do before I can actually start placing some structures, but am hoping 2018 will see some of that work. One thing I think I realize now is that the "diorama" approach, while fun to look at, seems to be impractical for using a large collection of buildings on the layout. I am expecting that going forward I will be better off building the structures and siting them directly on the layout...combining kits for more sizable, realistic industrial businesses. Anyway, a discussion for a later day (although I would love to get comments on the topic...I have zillions of FSM and SRMW kits waiting for attention). Here are a few pics. (Clearly need to get better at picture composition as well.)


1. Posting on Modelers Forum / How to post pictures?

Sorry -- I checked everywhere I could think of and could not find a tutorial on how to post a topic with embedded pictures. Could someone please point me to a reference to read?
