    I finished up another exciting round of house detailing this week -













    And as if all that wasn't excitement enough, I also built a couple of sheds -



    My gosh, model railroading is exciting!

    Well I ran out of the color of choice for the tree leaf material that I was never sure I liked. I ordered some Superleaf material and look forward to knocking some of the old product off to replace with something better. At least I hope its better. I would post a photo but everything fails all of a sudden.

    Just completed the lateral secondary bracing:



    Just needs a coat of "Grey Stain" to fully finish it. In the meantime, the 1/16 X 1/32 wood wont be here till Tuesday so that is when it will be completed I think.

    Got started on rehabbing another section of the Slate Fork's scenery, and then I dug out the ol' Canon Rebel XT DSLR. The Google phone's depth of field sucks sour limes, so despite its ease of use, I think I'll be going back to the DSLR from now on. Here's a shot:

    207 coming on.jpg

    The signal is a fixed aspect (yellow) distant signal in approach to the swing gate where the Southern (formerly the Slate Fork Railway shortline prior to the 1960s) crosses the Norfolk & Western mainline.

    It's long past time to get that SD-9 detailed and weathered. Anyone have a spare BLMA EMD pilot retrofit kit? Will they work for Atlas EMD SD-9s? I cannot find any available online, but I'd like to hide that MT coupler insert.

    Renumbering a pair of German class 151 electrics.

    Old road numbers on the fronts and sides have been removed with very fine sanding paper (silicon carbide), but the black needs patching here and there as the green shows.
    So, I'm masking and painting before applying the new decals.

    License plates removed ...

    Only thing I accomplished this weekend was learning a lesson...LOL Had a couple switches acting up and when troubleshooting I held power on too long and smoked them both. Bad switches torn out and replacements ordered. Oh well
