The Narrow-Gauge convention just ended and Chris Lane was one of the movers and shakers for that, so I bet he hasn't had any time for the annual over last month.
Quote from: Fred Klein on August 04, 2023, 01:05:24 AMLee, I've always admired your layout. I rank it right at the top of my favorite layouts along with Joseph Kreiss' Mosquito Creek Lumber, Model Railroader's Olympia and Dave Meek's Thunder Mesa.Thanks very much, Fred.
Quote from: Fred Klein on August 04, 2023, 01:05:24 AMAs a matter of fact, I was inspired to develop the "alternate universe" for my layout after reading what you created for the Stoney Creek. Thanks for sharing all of your hard work.I've gotten a few people over the past few years emailing me with the same sentiments.
Quote from: Fred Klein on August 03, 2023, 12:50:48 AMThanks for the update, Lee. I've been checking the WRP website every so often but have found nothing new. Oh well, they say patience is a virtue.It is indeed. When you write for magazines, you get used to the waiting.

I usually just stain them with an India-ink and alcohol wash and at the end of the project I give everything a light coat of flat finish to blend things together and cover up any glue spots. So far, I've been very pleased with the results.I essentially did the same on the front that is the biggest part of the back wall backdrop on my On30 layout:

I got a box of 1000 extra-long (about 7 inches) for around $10 US but that's been at least 3 years ago - who knows what they're going for now. These stirrers are a little wider and thicker than what I get with my coffee, so they work out really well for floors, roof eaves, etc. - basically any place where a little beefier lumber would normally be used. They make great platforms for stations (both freight and passenger) and I have also used them for exterior walls and been very pleased with the results.I bought the same thing you did. I think most modelers would never run out of these suckers. They're the best hobby value out there for us O scale types!

I'm convinced the man probably also fixes the roof when it leaks and takes out the trash at White River, as he seems to do everything else.
