    Depth of field is a mess on this one.

    MC and all, great shots!

    For me, using Randgust's tips:

    http://www.trainboard.com/grapevine/showthread.php?106256-Brass-Wire-Handrails-N-Scale-randgust

    Here's my first attempt at wire handrails.

    This is the original N scale Minitrix U30CG ugly plastic handrails:

    Here's the work in progress:

    And after some more cleanup:

    I'm amazed that I, too, can do this! Thx to Randgust and all the model railroading
    forum posters who have, over the internet, given me the instructions and tips.

    I have five more handrail / stanchion sets to do on the three N scale U30CG's I'm working
    on, so I trust that the skills will get better with more practice.

    More details on this N scale Santa Fe U30CG kitbash over at this thread: http://www.trainboard.com/grapevine/showthread.php?92144-Trix-U30CG/page6

    If I can do it, anyone can! Thx for the instructions above that got me started. :)

    Thanks John.

    I've been watching the U30CG build with interest. A couple of the Modutrak guys were dicsussing that very model a few weeks ago.

    Finally! A realy brdge in N Scale

    This may a bit belated, but I just have to say that I am utterly blown away by Mark's bridge construction. The unrealistic appearance of bridge models in N scale has long been a HUGE pet peeve of mine. Especially, when, if the bridge itself doesn't already look questionable enough, someone will decide to make an engineering impossibility out of by building a bridge without piers or any other visible means of support.

    This is excellent work! It looks almost exactly like the one picture I have seen of the Lemon Creek bridge in the Rodger Burrows book. I always thought that was a classic view of railroading in Southern BC, where pony truss bridges abounded in a literal herd wherever the CPR went. The rivet detail is particular good, as well as the individual truss members with their very plausible open lattice work, just like the real bridge.
