Stu Gralnik's Model Building Services

Those of you that have been here for TrainOps might remember my friend Stu, he was here for a few TrainOps over the years. Anyway, he builds highly accurate HO, S, and O scale buildings as a business. His website is a treasure trove of fantastic buildings. I particularly love this one

An incredible model of a coal tower that I have never seen before.

A great looking model!

That is impressive. Not just good but truly impressive. I have built what i think are some pretty nice models but I don’t think I have ever made a truly impressive building. I really admire people who can and do produce finely detailed model buildings like this coaling tower.

Stu has an O Scale layout in his basement, and its FULL of high-quality buildings like this. Plus its fun to see what’s on his workbench.

Freaking awesome model but the 3rd rail don’t blow my dress up unlike Neil Young.

The bain of O scale. I get why back in the day they did it. It did make for a more user friendly track arraignment by being able to do dog bones and what not without having polarity issues, buttttttt its just wrong. I am hoping to do a 32mm outdoor run for both Fn2 and running O gauge stuff I got from Steve Featherkyles wife. While the Fn2 stuff will most likely be RC/Battery I am undecided on the O gauge and one of the reasons for that is the dang 3rd rail. If I make all the O gauge stuff R/C battery then I can do dead rail and only have two rails. But that is a lot of conversion just to get rid of the third rail.

I’m with you Rooster. The third rail to me is just glaring.
