I found this interesting bit of info:

http://www.history.com/news/chemist-solves-lincoln-funeral-train-mystery


Hmm... it should have
been orangutan orange...


Two scientists create a teleportation ray, and they try it out on a cricket. They put the cricket on one of the two teleportation pads in the room, and they turn the ray on.
The cricket jumps across the room onto the other pad.
"It works! It works!"

More "wood color" for me. Scratchbuilt a small water tower for my HOn30 based on one the Huntsville & Lake of Bays used. The tank is a Walther's N scale roof top tank, rest is home made.
Raw:

Sprayed with Rustoleoum Khaki camo paint.

2 washes of ink/alcohol:

Wash of burnt umber and washer fluid.

Picked out various boards with 5 different colors. Rubbed the bands with a graphite stick for color.

I drew an Appalachian logging railroad track plan.  There's a lumber mill and a coal tipple along with a logging area and a town.  It has the usual sharp curves and steep grades you'd expect, grades denoted with arrows.  It's difficult to draw, but the logging and coal tipple areas are well below the rest of the layout.    The one thing I might add is an interchange with a mainline on the right.  I'll probably never build this but it was fun to create!

My sister and I saw the replica in 2015 at the Bluegrass Railroad Museum, along with the Leviathan 4-4-0, itself a replica of a typical 1860s loco.   The funeral car was parked and could be toured, Leviathan was running on their train rides - with a diesel on the other end providing most of the power.

I've spent the past several weeks working on my lumber mill at Kinzua.  I've always been a little apprehensive about scratchbuilding but I decided to dive head on into it with the main mill, the lumber shed, and the dry kiln. 

This lumber shed is very loosely based on the Hines Lumber mill shed at Hines, Oregon.  The actual structure was an amazing 1/2 mile long http://www.senecakids.org/SenecaProject/Hines/Plant.html, but I was able to allocate about 200' worth of space (15" actual inches) or enough to fit four 50' boxcars inside.  I did not attempt to model the interior other than a few lumber stacks next to the doors.

One of my summer jobs during college was pulling green chain at a mill, although it was actually a veneer mill (we made paper covered veneer primarily used for grape boxes in the 60's-80's).  Pulling green chain is a very physically demanding job usually held by the lowest seniority workers in a mill.  No way I was going to build a lumber mill without this feature!  I've started using sanded grout for my gravel areas (thanks @SSW7771).

Thanks!  I shouldn't misrepresent myself - I have done a few smaller scratchbuild projects - but this is by far the most ambitious...
