    Hey, thanks for the kudos. Truth be told, I would've been happier with my original plan: large photographic transparencies (similar to Translites) mounted onto backlit lightboxes (such as those used...

    Growing up in the Los Angeles area I saw plenty of Southern Pacific which of course became my favorite livery to model. In the late 1960s there was a shortline that ran through the Los Angeles County...
  4. Which size talus/ballast for N-scale masonry-/brick-debris?

    Hey all! As you may know, I'm back trying to model my destroyed city using mostly with second-hand, partially destructed Faller and other 160:1 structures. I noticed the effect is far more complete...

    As others have commented, an amazingly high-caliber of modeling work here—very impressive, suitable for a layout in any model railroading publication. And, finally, a warehouse modeled with a...

    Great idea, guys—thanks! I don't mind painting the bezels at all, but I plan to change the backgrounds periodically from desert to city to oil refinery. However, I could tape the bezels with the...

    Update [couldn't include any more photos in prior post]:

    Got all four 43" displays up on the layout. Note that the monitors' bezels do detract from the experience quite a bit. Being...

    My layout is about the same size as yours: 12' x 13'. Keep it simple. The main thing you want is for your trains to operates smoothly. I am making my trackwork dead-flat—no elevations (I have a...

    Backgrounds:

    My four-year-long indecision over what to do with my backgrounds has really taken its toll. I want to move on, but this part of the project has paralyzed my progress. So, I'm throwing...

    Thanks! It feels great to be back in the hobby!



    Not sure. I guess the kind of damage an alien spaceship easy would produce (or, sure, Godzilla). Some excellent tips, there—thanks! I have...

    Destroyed City:

    Working on improving my "damaged structures," dappling them with black acrylic paint to simulate fire damage, attempting to better randomize the damage with dykes, and deleting...

    Thanks, Moose! Good to see you again, too! Feels great to be back. My interests are so enigmatically fickle—how and why I pick-up/discard new or old hobbies at a drop of a hat is a complete mystery...

    Containers:

    Also ordering two Kato freight depot structures, plus their extensions, to finally have a place to put my containers. I never planned on building a container-consist since the real...

    Thank you! But I have to tell you, I'm the slowest, least-skilled "modeler" on the forum (i.e., I'm more of a buy-stuff-already-built kind of guy).



    Thanks! Agreed. I used that precise...

    Two years later . . .

    Finally . . . I'm back. I've since gone through three more hobbies (modular synthesis, video art, airsoft), before eventually returning to model railroading. Not to mention,...

    Your foliage looks particularly awesome! Nicely done! Your foam-work/Sculptamold is also praiseworthy! Layout starting to look amazing! I'm also a big fan of the polyfiber. Add leaves and instant...

    Flat-top with 2" iso. For a while I had built a hybrid. Wish I would've stuck with the hybrid (don't know why I didn't). A hybrid/open-grid inherently inspires more varied terrain-height. Now I'm...

    Hi! Are you referring to CRC QD Contact Cleaner? An Amazon customer stated, "[The] can says it contains isohexane, difluorethane, N-hexane, and ethanol. No isopropyl alcohol." I only chose the...

    The CRC stuff works fine. That's what I've been using. Get a bottle of Flitz metal polish (I think AutoZone carries it), and try polishing your track with that first, then just perform a...

    Try the Flitz + WD-40 contact cleaner or CRC contact cleaner combo. I swear, you'll never look back!

    At a dielectric constant of 2.1, mineral spirits is pretty good stuff and a lot cheaper than the aerosol products. I have a can of it I bought to remove paint but thought the canned stuff would just...

    Ooops!!! Corrected! Now, after everyone at MRH and some here went ga-ga over the WD-40 contact cleaner, I just ran out to Home Depot to get two cans of it, then I read the SDS sheet, after I got...
