I like the rail glint and dead flat roadway . Reminds me of the way I did my roadways and rails in the diesel house when I was doing HO . I can't remember if I used leveling compound or plaster . What did you use ?

Finally got around to building this.  It is an MLW M420B remote control locomotive that was built specifically for the British Columbia Railway in July, 1975. It's a Briggs Models resin kit that's been languishing on the shelf for a few years along with umpteen other kits.  It's DCC, with a TCS AMD4 decoder, and runs on an Atlas B36-7 chassis.

Expansion has begun on the Seaboard Central.  Here's an overall perspective of the layout, where you can see the original HCD, the recently relocated cassette, and the new HCD.  More details over on my thread in the Layout Engineering forum.

After trying a On30 porter locomotive and not being happy with the details, I bought a LGB porter and some coal cars to mess with.

With the On30 model and my scratchbuilt HOn30 model, sitting on N scale track  :facepalm:

That...   Is....   AWESOME.   That's the first completed kit I've seen. I too have four languishing on the shelf. Well done.

Back to working on the layout.. which has been languishing all summer.

Currently working to extend the upper deck Fort Nelson photo backdrop around the corner into the industrial yard.   Lots and lots of Photoshop layering and editing fun ahead.



Attempting Canadian prototype modelling in New Zealand.
