very very nicely done. looking forward to seeing more
Work goes on. I think, this segment is finished, for now.
Three more segments for this module are waiting for scenery.
BTW, the target is movable. :angel:
Wolfgang...beautiful modeling. Very impressive.
Hi Wolfgang, You make everything look so east, it is intimidating!
Wolfgang your work is very impressive.
One picture more from the stub switch, I like those details.
really nice looking track work. Thanks for the pics.
Silver Creek has a break.
I'm building two modules for the line. You can't have only stations, you need some line between.
Next step will be track laying.
Now I've covered these two modules with basic scenery. They're ready for operation. Later I will do more scenery.
Back to my Silver Creek module. I'm working at the second segment. I have to decide where to put rock molds. Here's a first idea.
Looking good Wolfgang. I have a friend that models 1/35n2 with stub turnouts and link and pin couplers. Now talk about fun (I use the term loosely as it applies to the couplers) during an op session. At least in that scale I can see the couplers but it is still a PITA.
Color to the rocks !
Only a few drops color into a cup of water, and painting the plaster.
Only a few days later :
There's still a lot to do. I have to conceal the gap between the two segments, There could be a rock slide with crib wall. And I need to finsish the river bed and details.
But at first comes the last segment.
More work with scenery.
And for a break I took a flight over Silver Creek:
After a safe landing I took a close up picture at the site of the water tower:
Wolfgang, it is amazing how well you did the scenery. I was deeply impressed by your urbane layout but you master scenery at the same high level. Very well done
Thank you, Reinhard.
I think, this is only "basic scenery". There's still a lot more to do. I hope to have it better for the meeting in June in Unna.
Wow!! It's been a pleasure following this thread... you do some impressive work. Thanks for sharing...
I participated with Silver Creek and other modules at the FREMO meeting in Daleiden.
Here're a few pictures.
A train approaches from the narrow gauge line to Silver Creek.
... and rumbles over the bridge.
Serving the mine
Turning the train
Silver Creek, dual gauge line to the left and right
and the narrow gauge line to Parlin and Fiddletown
Silver Creek depot
There's still a lot to do!
Silver Creek will get a stock yard for sheep loading.
Perhaps it's just my pereception- The windows on Silver Creek depot sure look low to the ground?
I followed the drawing from Harry Brunk's book "Up Clear Creek on The Narrow Gauge".
