Kit Building / Re: Tylick Tool Bar Mills My build Challenge 2018

Hi Guys:

Received new walls from Jim. Windows resized for the plastic windows. Color has been changed to CN gray per Jim's request. Corner trim is added. Walls are braced. Big sign is added, nail holes are done and A&I wash has been applied. On to the next step.


Wow - you have been busy.  Looks great - love the color.

And finally for tonight, the tracks were installed above the inspection pits. The second stall will have a track that extends out to the outside loading docks. A very useful feature for the big repairs and part shipments.

I continued with the roof sheds.  A few more braces and I will be painting these and mounting them to the roof card.

You can also see pieces of the overhead crane going together while I'm working on the windows in the picture above.

I made progress on three fronts with the Locomotive Works build today.  First, more windows. My next build is going to have less windows ;) .

John, thank you for your time and effort. The photos are all superb.


You are welcome.  I hope our forum members will find the photographs useful.  I have four more layouts to go to complete the 2017 tour. I'm playing with the idea of creating a thread for the past Narrow Gauge Conventions, if there is an interest. I'm sorting through the pictures and once I get them in directories by layout owner, it's possible to post them like I did the ones from this year, in this thread. I know that a few pictures from each layout were posted but I don't think anyone posted a layout tour.

Great to have you along on the challenge build. I will be following along.  I bought the kit and have a place picked out for it but it will be awhile before I get to build it.

Welcome to the forum. 

Looks terrific, John!

Cheers, Mark.

Thank you my friend.  I sure have a lot of details to add to this build. I hope it all looks good when I'm done.

Very nice and grimy John. What giddy you use to get that look?

Thanks Curt - The wood started out with a coat of earth paint, the cement with med. grey paint, and the brick as per above posts.  I then went to work on it with a few different gray pan pastels applied with a brush cut like chalks. It needs more work but we are started down the path I'm looking for.  I need to get the details in before I do the final weathering steps. I also want to get the wall and the wood flooring on the other side to this level and then work on all of it at the same time.  Next step, is the crane, which will setup all the dimensions.

That floor is looking great!  So glad Amy navigated the hospital experience well.


Thanks for stopping by the thread and the kind words. Amy is feeling a lot better - thanks.
