Good morning! I hope to finish the castings for the 4 builds I have going on my workbench, today - talk about a messy workbench. I hope everyone has a great day.

A very nice job on the machine castings. I am working on a few as well. They are tiny little buggers and a challenge to paint. Yours look very clean. Again, nice job.

Thanks for stopping by and the kind words.  The castings will be taking on a very used look once I get them in place.  I have been saving HO size chips, and I plan on having some work in the machines when it's all said and done. I would like to make the scene look like a snap shot of a day in the life of a working Locomotive Works.

Good morning! One more cup of coffee and I'll be back working on the railroad. More castings to paint. I hope everyone has great day. Here's another Narrow Gauge Convention Layout Tour photograph.

Here's another source of machine tools:  http://www.riograndemodels.com/HO.htm


And hopefully we'll get the Western Scale Models stuff again, including their belt drive set.

Thanks for adding these sources.



I also have a number of the rio grande models casting. Very nice castings. I have been trying for years to get the Western Scale Models HO machine tools.  They only have the lathe in HO at this time.

I bought mine from MicroMart and I'm very happy with it. It has the digital readout for the rip fence but I very rarely use this feature and wouldn't recommend paying extra for it. I always setup my cuts with a feeler gauge. If your going to cut your own strip wood you will need a fine tooth blade.  The 40 tooth carbide blade is my go to blade for most of my work.

John were did you get those machines for the machine shop?  They really look nice.

Even though I do O-Scale you don't see many HO scale machines that look that good.

The wheel grinder, drill presses, and band saw are from Scale Structures Limited, the lathes are from Crow River Products. I will be adding additional machines that I have picked up at shows over the years. I will also be adding some details that do not come with the stock kits. Many of the details will be added as I install the belt drive system.

Good morning! It has rained hard here for 24 hours. All I can say is I'm sure glad it isn't snow or we would be shoveling for days. This is the second time this winter that a major snow storm became a rain storm. I'm heading into the train room for the day  ;D ;D . I hope everyone has a great day.  Here is another Narrow Gauge Convention Layout Tour picture.
