Great job on that bash, I love those little Ozark hand winch booms. I have one mounted in one of my rail trucks.
Here is a couple of shots of the tran/diff sitting on the 1:24 model.
I have found that I have had to partially assemble the kit model in order to get the
right measurements and proportions to build from.
Thanks Gary, that explains it for me.

I think that the top and bottom plate that sandwiches the rail as it feeds through the rolls
is what eliminates the possible twist.
Unlike the single rail benders I have used in "large scale" that have no in or out feed support, nothing but the rolls themselves.
Are ya stayin dry?

I am located in the city of Chatham, Ontario, Canada. My wife and I are getting ready to move into an apartment and due to my health, will be stepping away from the large scale hobby.
I am looking for someone close by to sell my trains to, and at a very reasonable price. As we are all aware, shipping can be hard on the wallet. I have no intention of recovering the money I have spent on this hobby which has given me great joy. My goal over the last 20 years has been to promote the hobby.
If you are located nearby I will be happy to send you a rough list as to what I have for sale. My web site, www.ckgrs.com, has photos of my layout. My email is email@example.com. This includes everything, even the ballast, die cast cars and figures.
Regards, Dennis Brown less

Cool! Have fun with it (and wear a mask--the fumes are nasty)

If there is no interest by March 1st, I'll list it on e-bay.

That Searails docksider with the cast brass shell would be the cat's meow for these layouts.

Have fun and welcome to the forum!

I've already tapered and assembled the 2nd set of arched quarry stones for the other side and have nearly complete imagineered plans for the inner arch. I need to do something else for the solution to come to me. It's skewed and I need to 'see' the fit. I'm also seeing the upper inner finish, but haven't the TaylorStones to complete the job, oh woe.

When I was looking for online information on large scale I found them, and read 2 threads that turned into flame wars, name calling and insult throwing messes. Then I found LSOL. I was a happy LSOL member for many many years. But Jon lost interest and eventually pulled the plug. That's when Larry Otis and Dave Bodner told me to come over here. This is a first class site, thanks to Bob's stewardship and Bob will boot those who refuse to play nice. But if MLS does fail, and since the Aristo forum is now nearly devoid of new posts, and other sites have gone away (like the A.W.N.U.T.S.again site) that would leave LSC almost alone as an online forum for large scale. That cannot be good for the continued growth and health of the hobby. LSC is a great site, but the more sites the more exposure people can have to large scale, and the more exposure the more possibility for growth in the hobby. I hope MLS does get... less

I don't worry about whether the car is loaded or not, only that one needs to be picked up or dropped off at a certain industry. I do have loads for gons, hoppers and flat cars, but as far as I'm concerned, I just know a certain industry needs a certain car. I look at it this way,if they need a flat car, they'll load it. If I have to pick up a flat car, they've unloaded it.
Same here. Most of my flats, gondolas and hoppers are empty. Box cars all have closed doors and tanks, who can tell?. I just don't worry about it. less

The story goes is we is cheep and cheap. We buy the ends of various runs. Uniformity of stone is all we want.
To paint them they were placed randomly and blasts of primary colors were sprayed on in blotches. Then all the other colors were misted on in varying patterns, as well as spinning the low sided box so the paint wasn't directional. They tie together even when they seem opposites. They went back face down when applying, so I couldn't influence Randomness.
Funny thing about the Mik Challenge, it usually arrives during my first project of the year, on the pike. At Johnny P's prodding, I'm making my track appear real(ish). My goal is to make toy train components appear real. Hence the clothespins on the march.... there will be more coats over water features ...
