I painted the Highlander Brewery this week and started adding more details.  I also included in the picture the Missoula Mercantile warehouse, kit bashed from the Middlesex Manufacturing kit.  Both need signs, basic interiors, and window glazing as well as many other bits and pieces.  They will not be next to each other on the layout.

No, that was another deal from Lowes at Christmas.  2-piece tool box.  Some drawers have tools, others have trains :D

That's something I never thought to do when I was working. Ahh, the things I missed out on because of my manic depression.


Hmm... Kiz did often take
his baseball game to
work with him...


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!"

That would make a great MTL graffiti car (assuming MTL has a body style that's close enough).

These Atlas Trainman TOFC flats may not be 100% prototypical, but I like how they look after a little dressing-up. The decks are painted to look like aged wood planks, the wheel hubs have been painted to tie-in with the trailer's paint scheme, the visible mounting pins on the trailers have been removed and the corresponding holes in the deck have been filled, body-mounted couplers have been installed, the cars and trailers have been weathered, and tie-downs added. I would never have considered these had I not done a few for a friend. I liked his so well that I wanted to work up a few for myself!

This is the first HO scale structure I've completed in 15 years.  This is the combination coal shed and section car shed at Rico, CO on the RGS.

The prototype shed is seen below in an even more weathered state:

What are the colors used? I'm looking for a depot color for my HOn30 rig.

It's craft paint.  Americana Yellow Ochre and Americana Deco Art Espresso.  I used the same yellow ochre with my Colorado Midland stuff but there I used roof brown for the trim.  The RGS's trim color is a softer brown.

I use craft paints now for most of my hobby work; it's available almost anywhere,fairly inexpensive and the range of colors is quite extraordinary.

Track has been ordered for the Seaboard Central 3.0.  Sadly, though, the weather here this weekend will likely prohibit a run to the home center for benchwork materials.  :(

It was also offered by AHM and IHC.  Here's my plastic kit under construction and modified to match the World War II era prototype:
