Martin G. Jones Enginehouse/Machineshop
« on: February 09, 2018, 09:54:53 AM »
This is dedicated to my friend Marty Jones who has helped me over the last 10 years.

I have the plans for the Eureka Springs Enginehouse.  Using them and doing some modifications along the way.
This is being done in O-Scale.
I hope you follow along and comments are always welcome.

I don't think I posted the pictures of machines I'm using but will as progress goes on.  There the ones that Sierra West Scale Models sells.

So here is the first wall I did and I'm working on the 2nd one now.

Jerry,

Count me in on the build. It looks like a great project.

If you hate plan A, you are certainly not going to like plan B!

Glad to have you on board Donato.

Right now I'm trying to decide whether I want to do the tracks in ON30 or ON3.  Either way it makes no difference in the build.
