    Musical Trains :)

    Moose used to play this piece on piano. After awhile, hooves just couldn't take all of the rapid note changes towards the end...

    What are you buying this month? (December 2019)

    Next rake of five open gondolas arrived, but hang on ... the top one is wrong for the box and not what I want.
    Contacted the seller and he excused

    Oh, Moose should revel in beautiful music. There's joy, albeit subdued, in Pachelbel's "Canon." It's one of the most played pieces of music

  • Barn build

    Nine years ago I made this sketch set (https://www.nscale.net/forums/downlo...?do=file&id=36), but never got around to building it. I know why I didn't, I knew the doors were gonna be tricky. Thats an understatement (they were a real bear, and took me a full week to do just the doors). Lower main doors are the sliding type with an upper door rail and bottom retainer, while the upper loft doors are inward swinging utilizing duct tape hinges.

    Eight doors total meant 40 pieces of .015 x .030 trim that always seemed to find the floor instead of my work table. Persevereance won though, and the completed project looks pretty good.

    Footprint is 2 3/4 by 4, and if you have a farm on your layout with no barn, this may work for you. I don't have a layout anymore (downsized to a condo) so this barn is for sale. PM me if interested.
