Beautiful Frank.  I can't wait to see it on the Layout.

Jim


Jim,


Thanks for stopping by. Building one is nearing completion and building two is just starting. I told Tom that I am considering adding a third building because of the grove that he has built. Still in the planning stages. I might just have to hand deliver it so I can see it first hand on the layout.


Frank / Erieman

Frank,
If you hand deliver them, let me know and I will meet you there. (we can all have some BBQ)

Jim


Good Evening Jim,


Awaiting to hear from Cuse about possibly going to the Narrow Gauge Convention. I could give him Yakima Apples I back to Florida and give it to Tom.  I am probably going to wait until all the structures are complete, which will be later in the year. Thank you for stopping by.

Good evening all,


Yes, it is still hot outside. Spent most of the day working on the building. All the rafter tails have been installed, painted, etc.. Now I am onto working on the decking. Lots of decking. Progress has been coming along with one deck almost done and a second deck well under way. The second deck also has supports for the cover roof. Lots of small pieces of lumber to fit together. Some of the decks also provide support to the roof overhang on two sides. Progress is going smoothly. Stay tuned to the progress. Here are a coupple of pics of todays progress.

Tommy,


Thank you for your kind words. Yes, I have been busy with two, possibly three buildings for Tom aka ACL1504. The main building is close to completion. Spent a good portion of the day working on the decks that are around the building. Ran out of the decking lumber tonight and will have to get on the phone tomorrow to see if any hobby shop here in Phoenix has what I need. Otherwise, I am in for a slight delay of at least a week or more. The posts that support the rear overhang is done. I also dusted the roof with a rust chalk to simulate rust. There are still a few other steps, railings, etc. to complete tomorrow.  Here is a pic of the rear side of the building.

Good Morning All,


Progress on building one is coming along nicely. I thought you might want to see my work space at the build continues. YUP, quite a mess. Next photo is the back of building one. All the decks are done and installed. The roof support on the main building overhang is done and installed ( see pic). All the steps from the decks to the ground are done and installed. All the railings around the steps are on the "to do" list. The roof overhang support on the front end of the shipping building is drying and will be installed in a bit. On the same deck end will be two ladders at either end.


The water tank and its support structure will be on the build list next week. This build is getting close to completion. WHEW. One almost done, one or two more to go.


Stay tuned.

Hey Frank, I don't know whose workspace looks worse right now, yours or mine,  but out of the mess rises a great looking structure.

I'm curious how Frank got a picture of my workdesk up there?  ???

Good Afternoon Steve,


What a wonderful day to stay indoors and work on a building. I was outside very briefly this morning and the rest of the time was spent at the workbench. Progress has been very good today as you will see in the following two photos. All the railing work has been done on the right end of the building. Additionally, all the decking and ladders on the other end of the building is complete. All the railings are small, delicate parts. Slow to build and assemble. I have noticed that the small piece of roofing on the main building was not fastened real well, so I have removed it and will using 5 minute epoxy to bond the small piece of roofing better momentarily. I also have found that there is another small deck and step assembly that I have note yet built, so that is on the list. A little bit of railing along a step on the back of the main building also needs to be completed.


Only major element to finish is the water tank and that will happen over the next couple of days. Then it will be onto building #2. How time flies when you are having fun. I'll probably clean the work surface before I resume the build of #2 structure.

The build is looking great.  It's sunny and in the 70 's here today - perfect.  I have never seen this much rain in the summer in Michigan. I hope you don't use up all the AZ heat this summer - save some for us to enjoy this winter.  Stay cool my friend.

Jan,


Thank you for the wonderful score. Glad you like it. Building one is almost done, then on to the building two of this complex. Still deciding if there will be a building three. The most important thing is that Tom, aka ACL 1504, like these buildings on his layout.

Good Evening John,


I'm staying cool working in the train room. We will be in the 70's soon as well - Like maybe November or December. Only kidding. Our summer is like your winter. We stay inside now, but come winter, it is outside time. Oh well, its always time to be in the train room. Thanks for your kind words. Talk to you soon.

Well if he doesn't like it ( stupid assumption ) put it in a sturdy box and send it over the big puddle called Atlantic, the perfect 10 barely tells how much I like this building.

Are you kidding me? I love them and will definitely use them. In fact, the A&S RR has already purchased property for the structures.

Very very nice progress. I've been following along with great interest.
