      First trip around the RR in 3 years (cause life got in the way). The squeal is the lead units plow hitting the high and low spots. Need to re-ballast and rebuild a few areas. The camera must have hit the tunnel (dog containment door) coming out at about 1:45 causing the shift.

       

       

      This video helps me quite a, BIT forgot I loaded it (old hat Rooster)  ......I feel like Bart ....the rebuild has begun!

       

       

      Is an apostrophe even legal after a lowercase A ?

      It's good to see you running trains again instead of just working on your post count.

    • Had the perfect opportunity this morning. About an inch of wet snow and the day off.

       

      I opted to sit in front of my gas fireplace and work on M-11 instead!

       

      Sean V. was out there (no surprise) and posted a video to his RR page on Facebook.  I don't think he is posting here anymore due to his line of work. He doesn't post on FB under his personal name anymore either.

    • Sean, I think I left it at your house.  Rooster, always important to mark your territory.

       

      Don't forget to post a photo.

      Under the yellow snow .....he's gonna try and tell you they are the truck lites reflecting on the snow but I tend to differ.

      The roof is a coroplast campaign sign, and has not been painted yet, but that’s a great idea!!! He would like that, now to go looking for a 1/24 or close enough scale helicopter to go on top!

       

      Pete,

       I'm personally thinking a 1:32 scale chopper however it is your RR and ewer rules with no rulers!

      If it was me I would do the H145 but you might "prefer" the Huey yourself.

       

       

      Just saying

    • Exactly what I pictured in my mind David. Let’s see how well it winds up looking when I’m done! Thanks!

    • The stairway can just be a door size box in the corner of the roof to suggest an access.

      I was thinking something like above because fiddly details won't hold up in the outdoors Pete.

    • That big of a stairway would take a while to build! Not sure I want to do that, maybe I will add a small building for helicopter access .

      Neat. Don't forget the stairway to the roof access, you might need one of Tim's doors.

    • Pete,

       

      Looks great!  I'll have top add candle holders to my list or almost-ready-to-go buildings!

    • Looking good all gussied up Pete. I like the simulated modern helicopter landing pad on the center building, but you do realize they are usually just a circle with an H in the center, right ?
