Next to the dirt road is a drain pipe with a little water draining out.

I'll fast forward here and you can see the scenery is now in place.

I painted white glue on the cork and added Scenic Express dirt.




I added some base scenery material and stained the rock side with A&I.





More in a few.

I needed to have a road from the yard area to the lower level where I planned a coal dump.



I used cork roadbed to get the basic slope for the road.



I liked the look so I glued it in place. I then added some scenery paper and hand carved the rock side.

More in a few.

Our local paper has a throwback Thursday photo every Thursday. I got the idea from the paper which I never read.

All that straight track.....just made for Greg Speed.....although I seem to remember someone making me slow down on the mainline when passing the yards.  ;D


Greg,

You still try to sneak in some "Greg Speed" at times.

Tom ;D


Tis true.....but there's always a cop around to catch me.  ;D ;D ;D


Greg,

Just remember, I'm everywhere you don't want me to be. In the train room that is.

Tom ;D

It looks like the crew in that yard tower kept busy.


John,

This was a busy crossing for sure. Lots of action occurred here. The tower had a full time staff off four. ;D ;D

You are really cranking out some excellent work here Tom.  Thanks, as usual, for all of your photos and explanations.....very helpful.


Mark,

I'm glad you are enjoying the build thread. I get on a roll once in a while and find it hard to stop.

You are welcome also.

Tom ;D

A few months ago I purchased some LEDs from Slim and promptly misplaced them. I knew if I ordered more, I'd find the missing lot of LEDs and other goodies.

I placed a reorder with Slim and yep, a week later I found the old lot. I told Slim to go ahead and fill the second order as I would then have twice as many to loose.

However, this time I put them where I can easily find them.



Here is a look at some Raymo vehicles I'm saving to the layout later.

Good stuff...when Tom gets rolling, it's fun to watch. 


John


John,

Thank you for checking in.  At times I wish I had two more of me.

Tom ;D


If you start eating the fried chicken & fries at Smoky Bones.....there will be two more of you!  ;D ;D ;D


Greg,

Funny man, those aren't the two I'm looking for or wish I had.

Wow!  Lots and lots of progress being made on the Atlantic and Southern.   :o  I'd better wrap up the Radio Station soon.  Looks like it'll have a wonderful home.   :D

The pictures are great but the layout is even better when viewed in person.   ;)


Bob,

It has certainly been a progress filled week. Take your time on the Radio Station. I won't need it anytime soon.

Thank you for the very kind compliment on the layout, much appreciated.

Tom ;D

Rolling Stock / Minitrains redo for Cuse
« on: January 17, 2018, 07:16:57 PM »
I'm kinda like Bilbo Baggins as I'm off on another journey.

John Mancuso has asked me to repaint if necessary, redecal and weather his new Mintrain loco and four passenger cars..

I'll remove the old decals on the loco, renumber it and change the tender decal to read C&DR RY. The Carrabasset & Dead River Ry. Obviously the tender will only hold the diamond with C&DR in the center.

We don't have enough decals to redo the passenger cars. Here is the loco and cars.
