    In the mail today...an A-B-A set of Monon F3 units by Intermountain. These will go well with the small collection of Monon diesels I already have.

    Did a little work on the layout to get the outer loop running, after one minor off on the first lap, the steam engine (J39) I used ran at least 8-10 with no issues, so I think I've fixed that. May...

    Been a busy month so far.

    Four boxcars, two Athearn (C&O) and two Atlas Trainman (ACL). I'm not trying to neglect the U.S. stuff even though most of what I've bought lately has been British!...

    From what I gather on my local line, when it was Louisville & Nashville and ran steam, the 185 miles between Louisville and Nashville were at first divided into three divisions....

    Second ridge/hill whatever you want to call it now in, with connections to both bridges. The bridges need a little paint touch up, as does the station platform. I was hesitant on painting it but...

    Hill covered (ran out of plaster strips at the right time I guess). I may need to cut into the plaster to get the bridge to fit as I wanted it to originally. Shouldn't be difficult. You can see how...

    One thing at a time. :)

    So I "added" a second color to the bridge, at points that I think would be a different color than the rest. I kinda like it, I think a bit of weathering powder might help...

    Looks like you're off to an excellent start! Don't be afraid to try things, and if they don't work, remove them and try again/something different.

    Bought some (cheap) paints this morning, at 50 cents a piece if they end up not working out I won't be out too much money. I bought "pewter gray", "granite gray" and "country gray"(whatever that...

    I cut the Peco stone wall linings down to size a bit and glued them together with the bridge portals to complete the first bridge. I think it's going to be a bit wide for a road bridge. How wide are...

    Yesterday I drove out to western Kentucky to CSX's Henderson Subdivision. A friend had told me that Wednesday was usually one of the busier days for the line, which sees up to 25 trains daily. The...

    Finished painting the backscene the other day. Nothing too complex. Did sneak in an extra spur so I can potentially park a train back there for staging purposes.

    After being disatisfied with my previous 2x4 layout iteration, I decided to turn it into a layout for all my UK related N gauge items. I saw a Peco Setrack layout I really liked, and decided to try a...

    Same... thinking about my old 2x4 layout, might make it into a British layout since these locomotives can handle tighter curves (or at least I think they can). Need to learn how to oil locomotives...
