    • It's a weird thing on this site, if you log in with https (to protect yourself and password), then pictures posted without https don't show...

      Switching to always logging without https can product the opposite problem.

       

      I know this can be fixed, I don't have this issue on my site..

      Got in my third run of the season in tonight. Running an Aristo Rogers 2-4-2 with Aristo GN stock car, CNW flat car (phone set on this car) and MDC Soo Line hopper at the rear. My FA is still having issues at the points and pulling cars off the track.

    • Brought home some more of my old equipment. And now that I have all the track home from my school’s train club, I can run a larger L loop and a smaller circle loop in the lower portion of the flower bed.

    • RV Repairs haven't ruined my spring, but nearly daily rain has.  Today being no exception I turned my attention back to the indoor expansion.

       

      Talk about great timing; just after I finished the temporary trestle, the FEBT Timber Transfer magazine arrived with a construction article on Puckey's Coal and Wood.  They were a retail fuel dealer located within the EBT wye at Rockhill Furnace. A feature of the dealership was an elevated coal delivery trestle for loading trucks. Since much of my RR is EBT inspired it's only natural that I use this as my trestle bent design!

       

      The build article included some basic sketches and sizes which I translated to 1:20.3 in Visio and came up with this basic plan. Component and End view...

      Side view. Bents are spaced every 6 feet with no lateral members EXCEPT the 12x12 stringers under the rail.  This will work for me as I can attach the bottoms to the plywood bench, but outdoors I might need to modify with some bracing...

      Since this is a delivery trestle, men need to access the dump controls, so there is a deck for access..

      If it ever stops raining I can set up the table saw outside and mill up a couple of thousand scale feet of 12x12 timbers!  That will give me something to do on rainy days and evenings while Arvy dries out inside.

       And yes, a few of you on FB know that I'm deep it trying to salvage my RV to travel another day.  It has some major floor issues I am trying to fix. That will keep me away from trains for most of the spring, if not all of it.

       

       

      Rooster purchases a new toilet wax seal and bolts for Jon so this will never happen again wrecking his spring!

      That's why we call this stuff we fiddle with a "Hobby".  You work on it and enjoy it when you want to.  No deadlines, no boss or customer breathing down your neck.  

      Should be that way, but s soon as I put the name out there for the new industry Sean has been relentless

    • Here is a door casting. It is a set of engine house doors that I carry.. had to make a new casting for the structure hinge.

    • Iain,

       Yes I have them for sale I just have not added them to my website. I am now casting them in black or brown. They are hollow so the wiring can be added. If they were to be used outside they would need a brass tube for the center to keep them rigid. (it is just too hot in some places) I am not sure if you can see it or not but the pole is  cast with an external "fake " wire and staples . Each one comes with the lamp fixture and tube. They are $12 each.

       

      Thanks Ty
