showin' some more of my layout.  Just completed more rock work and installing some signals (B&O CPLs of course).  Nothing like taking a few pics to help you find your mistakes.  Smiley

The signals are NJ International.  They came silver, but I painted them grimy black.  Just looks better to me.

On the rocks, I ran out of hydrocal halfway through, so I substituted with some sort of gypsum based stuff I got at the hardware store.  It mixed-up, and looked, like joint compound.  It was 2.97 a half gallon container.  So significantly cheaper than the hydrocal.  Worked just fine for my meager skills.

Regards,

Jonathan

i'm glad somebody has finally come out with accurate models of the b&o signals.
they were one of the things that told you that you were on the b&o and not some other railroad. unique railroads had unique physical plant.
will you be modelling one of the b&o towers with the yellow and red train order boards?

Jonathan, I finely took the time to look at all of your layout pictures.
The city looks really good. The night scenes are awesome.
Since my layout gets so much dust on it I'm glade I picked a dry landscape area to model.

The only thing I have to ask, (with tongue in cheek) Tongue is why so many photos of an out of focus  yellow caboose on the turn table? Grin

Jward,

Yes.  Eventually I will get around to a tower and other B&O type structures.  So many projects, so little time.

Ken, 

I know what you mean.  Dust is my nemesis, having a garage layout.  There lots of bad photos in my album, like the yellow caboose group.  I should just delete them.  I was experimenting with the camera.  Sometimes things don't go as planned.  Smiley

Regards,

Jonathan

 Smiley I have made 400 trees for my layout--from those WS armatures and clump foliage.  Most of them are in that photo. That was too much work.  Next time I'm doing the rolled up polyfiber trees; like the area above the new rocks.  Grin

Thanks for looking.

Regards,

Jonathan

Balrog, As you state, there are many talented people as well as very helpful if an other member has a problem.

Now, since you brought this post back to life, lets see if we can get some more layout photos.
I will start with these from my layout.
South Valley yard with a Bachmann depressed flatcar in the foreground.

Some more Bachmann flats with 20' containers. I bought 3 of these. Wished I had bought a few more. Sad

A scratch built warehouse with one of four trailers I decaled and added the refrigeration unit to.


Any one else got some pictures that they have not shown here before?

Thanks. 

That is a very old Atlas kit I've had for a while.  Finally found a spot for it. It was designed with code 100 track in mind.  I used EZ track up to the bridge, but switched to code 100 flex track across the span.  Half of the mainline, on this loop, is EZ track.  The other half includes various pieces of flex track and sectional snap track.

Regards,

Jonathan

Jonathan, Nice bridge. I like the lights.I have never thought of lights on a bridge. So the question is, are there such a thing in real life?
