    Not much new for this week so went digging in the files to retrieve these old ones of the cotton gin on one of my NTRAK modules. I had an interesting discussion with a guy who visited our club layout a few weeks ago. He actually had worked there once and gave me a tour of the place telling me the process that went on in each structure. I modeled it from photos so did not really know much about what all went on there.

    Been a while since I posted anything new. Here is one. This is a Kato N-scale NW-2 which I painted and modified. I opened the cab doors and windows, added walkway railings and grab irons, spark arrestors, crew, firecracker antenna, cab awnings, canvas radiator cover and weathered it. The Digitrax decoder makes a difference in the performance of the engine. I did a few things beforehand and then added the decoder. It is extremely smooth at slow speeds for a Kato NW2. The NW2 is just nosing out from under the main and crossing Front Street.

    Lovely work all. That NW2 and surrounds - terrific.

    I've been pouring my resin for the river, doing it in layers. So far I have a brown layer beneath a green layer. Planning one more layer - maybe a hint of blue-green in that one. Not sure.
    First pic shows just the brown layer

    Now with green over it

    This is where the polluted drain meets the river

    mikelhh, I never thought of pouring water in different colored layers to create a realistic stream. Most of the books say to paint the bottom then pour clear liquid. What you've done looks great! :thumbs_up:
