And here is the other side:
I also added numbers to the rear of the tender.
Next is some final weathering and the switcher should be done until I see something else.
Nice work Tom. :thumb:
SWEET :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
I took a few photos of the HO layout.
I've been adding the base coat of paint and some dirt.
Here's a photo of the yard.
This is an N scale Life/Like GP38-2 chassis I am modifying to fit under an old Atlas (Yugoslavia) GP40 shell.
Nice work, Ray!
Busy foks here. Great looking loco and tender Tom. The scenery is excellent.
Ray, nice to see yor progress too. Well done.
Nice work Ray. :thumb: :thumb: :thumb:
I made a little more progress. I extended the mountains in two of the corners and started working on the tunnel.
I already have these painted, I'll take some photos in the morning..
This is the retaining wall and tunnel liner before I painted the roadbed and put the top on the mountain.
One week left
I thought that I was finished for the layout party but an order that was going to get here next week came in a week earlier. I got more buildings for the city on Friday night. I finished 7 more building for the city. I still have seven more to paint and build. Here are pictures of what I was able to get done this weekend.
This picture show how much more i have to go until I have the whole city done.
This picture show the first passenger train to make a stop at the new station.
Great!! Glad to see you're back at the layout!!
This is the first layout party that I seen and have a few questions. What happens after it is over? Does everyone post like before and after pictures or just what they got done? When does the next layout party begin? I have a long way to go on the city that I started and there is no way I could get it all done in a week. I want to at least get the buildings weathered, wire put on the pole, and maybe the other seven kits painted and built by the end.
We basically just compair notes & work, really informally... Then we take a break for a month & then post a poll for the beginning of the next one. So figure in a month or 2 - Due to the holidays - we will most likly start the next one in January
You can keep working until then - just take pics & keep everyone informed of your work
Well, it's been a loooooooong while since I've updated, so here goes.
The trackwork I'd hoped to accomplish is done!!
While the whole circuit isn't yet handlaid, it is all in place and trains run through the whole existing layout. This was completed a day before my model railroading uncle swung through town. It sure is nice to have a chance to stand back, and watch (and listen to) trains make their way around the layout. :thumb:
Nice progress Ray!
Trains I can't believe how many buildings you have gotten done. Looks great!
