    J. Forist Produce by Bill Eubanks

    This structure is entirely scratchbuilt. It curves along the edge of a siding. Great job by Bill Eubanks.

    Man, Flash it looks like you and your club are enjoying yourselves.

    Can you try to duplicate the photo with J. Forest Produce Products when the scenery behind it is somewhat finished. I can see it in my mind and can't wait to see more.

    I'm sure I can. This is the area Al Boos is going to do. Al has been the NMRA Achievement Program chairman in years past and is also one of the Modeling with the Masters' guys. When you ask him a question you get a solid answer.

    My Berkshire finally has reason for being ! I've been wanting to acquire some C&O passenger cars so I can portray the local chapter of the C&O Historical Society chartering out the locomotive for some summer excursion trips. I went to the Great Train Expo in Columbus today & found these ....

    Even the cabooses caught my attention ......

    On another note, six axel power has been piling up at Sand Patch Yard, so it's time for a light move down to Cumberland ! ......

    A large part was moved out of the "Mouse Wheel Power Turbin Works" plant today, to be shipping off to the Nuclear power plant going in onthe other side of the "Wall".

    Wow, that's a lot of timber going into that trestle. Looks good.

    I have been playing around with lighting Tomar drumheads with small LEDs instead of the micro light bulbs they supply.

    Some day I will have to find a layout that models some Santa Fe tracks between some place like Oakland and Stocton, California, to run it on.;)

    Sorry, Wolfgang, I'm a bit behind.....

    It was easy with what I had before. Wet a clean paper towel and gently wipe, turning the towel so that a clean surface was presented to the surface with each contact. The two part epoxy was standing up very well, although I had only cleaned it perhaps seven or eight times by then. It has been in place only two years.

    I will do the same thing, but I will vacuum this new stippled surface first to reduce the chances of marring it with grit and fibers rubbing on it. I will attempt to clean it with the wet paper towel only once or twice a year. When I say wet, I mean run for a brief instant under a dribbling tap, not a soaked and dripping towel. I would probably want to dab it, and not wipe.

    With this approach, I am sure to have many more years of good looks than I am likely to have the layout. I suspect I'll be building within 24 months. The lessons learned on this, my second, are burning holes in my pockets. :tb-biggrin:

    I use a soft, one inch wide paint brush to clean the dust off my water surfaces.

    Wolfgang; This doesn't clean the water, but I keep mine covered with soft cotton rags (old T-shirts). I remove the rags whenever I am operating or showing that section of the layout.

    That gas-turbine must be the Athearn model coming out. Almost makes me want to model UP.

    Nice pics, all!!

    This afternoon I went to my club layout for the Fun-Run. I had both of my decoder equipped H0 Stewart F7s up and running for the first time. It was a really Fun-Run after all. I was the newbie so only fouled up the minimum number of times. When you are running DCC you still must set those turnouts correctly, you know? :D

    Some of the guys had those olde timey smokey steam engines:

    Guess I'd best look into weathering these engines of mine.

    Hey Russ....I've started my Texas Special. Not as good as yours but close enough for me. I used a sray bomb. I didn't want to dig out the airbrush and clean-up......
