Layout Tours / Re: Superior & Seattle Railroad Build

Here are a few photographs of the area above the bench work to get this thread started. The current status of the layout is that the plaster mountains have been completed and painted. They still need the detailing which will be completed for each area as I complete the scenery. This will consist of dry brushing the highlights and adding some detail color with chalks. The trees and structures you see in these pictures are sitting on the layout waiting for final placement . I like to play with tree size to maximize the depth of each scene. At least this will give you a feel for what I want to accomplish.

Good morning! Finding lots of good stuff here this week. The F&SM photographs are great thanks again to John Sullivan. I can't help but wonder what George is going to do on that layout when he really does retire. Have a great day.

Supposedly, this place was set up because Kitforums was having technical problem (among other reasons.)  But I have to log into this site -every time I come here-, despite what I set on the login page for "how long to remain logged in."

Graphically, the website design is better than Railroad-Line, and posting photos is a lot easier (not saying much...)   But for example there's no way to 'vote up'/"like" a post here (as there is on's forum software.) The functionality here pretty much matches what's on Kitforums.

So have we made progress?  How many competing model RR forums become too many?

Not sure if there's another place to frame this discussion.



I'm not having a problem with logins - I have remained logged in for weeks on both my IPad and home PC as they say it just worked??

Posting pictures has been an easy transition.

Send me an email if I can help with settings.

Progress for me means I see the time spent here as enjoyable!

So far-so-good

Thanks John.
Downloaded app.
Here is a photo

Looking good! It all starts with the first photo and the bench work.  Take a look at the layout tours threads. You may want to document your progress there.

Glad i found the forum.  I know you love pictures!  I need to figure out easy way to resize photos from ipad.  I have just started building my layout and will start a thread in the next few days.



Welcome - I use an app called autoresize. Works fine for me. Jaime showed it to me at the a EXPO.
If you haven't met Jaime yet you will. He loves pictures most of all - he started the we love pictures thing.

Good morning and WOW. Great F&SM pictures!  Sure is nice to have such a nice reference library of George's work. Thank you John Sullivan.

Happy Birthday Hal. Hope your having a good one.


Sorry about your sad news!  The train room is a healing place.

Morning guys, and those to follow....calling for some decent weather today I'll get some outside stuff done and then head to the shop and get onto some projects....I miss the old "forum days".....have a good day everyone....

Amen to that Jeff!

The problem is the old forum died when it lost it's editor.  Jimmy spent his time going in and cleaning up the place.  I pulled my build threads when they became a mess from so many people leaving kit forms and taking their pictures and posts with them. I tried to read the first three pages and could not get through them. I actually had someone tell me my threads had been hacked.  I did not like contributing to the mess so I cleaned mine up the best I could. If they had an editor they could go in and delete what's left!  I went over lurking this morning and was amazed at some of the BS posted. The only value in posting is for someone to enjoy following the thread.  I left, like so many others, because there is no way of controlling the quality of the threads. And no way to get help if there is an issue of any kind. I hope that doesn't happen here, but it will if we don't have an editor.  Where I grew up people respected others hard work and I started threads on the other forum because Jimmy worked hard at making it a place I wanted to spend some time. I hope that will happen here - just have to see how it goes.  I enjoy model building and hanging around with "most" good model builders and this forum can serve that purpose or go the way of so many others into the bit bucket.  At this point, I may decide to just get out of this forum business all together - I'm going to take a few weeks to decide. My 30 minutes of forum time are up. Time to go do some more modeling. Have a good day.

Great to see you here John!

Is it just me or did something change here today?  I don't have the advertisements on the right of my screen.  When did that change?

I'm with you Bob - I put in 10 hours working on wiring the layout and testing the mainline today on the S&S RR. It was real nice to see an engine running. The block wiring is working great for testing.  It is amazing how fast I can isolate a problem. Real nice to see some good friends making the move.

The attached layout drawing is a test.  When you click on the attachment do you get a nice big picture of my layout diagram? 
Got it - that's an awesome layout drawing!

Thanks David - that's one.
