Do you have a track plan you could post?  It would be nice to see how everything fits together.

Sid,

BTW I really like how you built supports away from layout for the fascia.  You're giving me inspiration for my fascia, when it's time to install it.

Thanks!

Regards,

Jonathan

No, I just meant basic model railroading repairs in general.

Does anyone know where I can get drawing of the C-19 road pilot with dimensions to build one like the Bachmann C-19 one.                                                                                       How about you Mr Bachmann, any suggestions please.

I did a ABBA set some years ago pulling about forty 40 foot HO cars and a forty foot brass caboose.. It was fun setting up the CV's with my Power Cab. Not too bad a challenge.

Made some more progress in the past bit. Finally got the fascia finished. There is about a foot in the opposite corner of the room still to fill, but everything else is nice white fascia board. Here you can see the light framing under it and then the final result down one aisle.





Then it was time for for more scenery. I have been focused on filling in the back, hardest to reach corners and working my way out to the aisles. I have lift outs in place, but once sceniced, they will be a bit of a chore to pop out.

This tunnel portal at the end of the aisle is a Woodlands plaster piece with the wing walls made from Chooch foam stone sheet on 3/16ths foam board. A little foam and plaster cloth to make the basic landform.



The cat house on the hill over looks the tunnel and has had it"s basic land shape roughed in with chunks of foam.



Then the foam gets shaped with a hot wire tool.



Here's the back wall after some dirt and green stuff get sprinkled around............



I try to blend the scenery into the background as creatively as I can.





And the tunnel portal is looking better, and ready to blend into the "Possum Hollow" scene.





That's all for now. Enjoy!

Sid

Put the slightly slower one behind.  You think the prototype ones are all perfectly together?  Think of the steam days, when double headed and triple headed trains had a separate crew in each one.  No notching MU there!  Each steam crew trying not to jerk out a drawbar.  One of the most fun things Iíve ever done in model railroading is run steam freights with helpers and separate engineers. Gotta communicate! Try it with whistle signals only , like it really was , and appreciate todayís MU with air conditioned cabs.  Railroading used to be tough as hell!
