I'm thinking of adding small details to my layout such as these
Automatic switch mechanism
Nicely weathered rails
I love those little details. I know that they are made as castings from a variety of sources. I'd make the grease box myself as it would be any easy scratch build. As for the rails, I just use Testor's Rust straight from the bottle. Cool shots, I've bookmarked them. :thumb:
Heyyyyyyyy! Nicely done Bob :thumb:
Here's a view down the track in St-Hubert. Pretty quiet.
.....and here's the other side. Passenger (Commuter) platform.
It wasn’t very nice outside at that time, but overall the
pictures are turning out OK.
Hey? Do you hear that? Sounds like……….
..A fast freight COMING DOWN THE TRACKS!!
That was CLOSE!
It’s a fast CN fuel manifest from St-Romuald Qc, going to Montreal.
The more details the better. Nice photos CN1 and Bob
Nice shots. Those little details is what makes the difference. Even when a layout is complete (if layouts ever are), one can keep adding details like this.
Another view of the Flange Greaser
I thought that my "ballast" job left much to be desired.
But now, I feel much better. Thanks CN
CN1, is that remote-operated switch a double slip??
I'm puzzlin' over it ...
I like that ballast pic, too! Yer right,
makes one feel better
Great shots. There is so much there that one can overlook in a simple trackside detail like a flange oiler. Is that roofing felt between and around the rails? No doubt for some kind of contaminate control from the oiler. :thumb:
Yes, that's exactly right
Yes, medium thickness felt. I guess its to catch the "over spray" . I don't
know how often they change it, it's pretty thick with grease/oil.
Lots of traffic on that spot: Via Rail, Amtrack, CN...
Many of us modelers forget that track is a model to and therefore should be detailed like the rest of our layout.These pictures prove that point.
Thanks for sharing.
