Must have been one hell of an accident.

Playa Desnuda’s Shell Oil’s office is now complete, and next up is ground cover, fencing, and signage. I am hoping to find a Shell tank truck for a good price…but first on the list is the ground cover between the tracks.

Good chance to get a good colour match for wheel rust.

They must use No-Ox on those wheels, right @peteski?  I'd guess they have been freshly removed/replaced.

Alwyn:  That would be my guess as well, judging by the truck frame(s) in the pile.  They probably haven't been there long enough to rust.

This is one thing we need - scale wheelsets for scenery or loads.  Pointed axles are great for operating small models, but look very out of place as wheelsets.

I continued my foray into Seaboard this week.  A shadow lined 10-1-2.

Well, I think I'm done with mine.   Or that's my story and I'm sticking to it.



Thanks to David Cutting for doing the Shapeways shell, and to Ron Beardon for raising the bar here.

I don't have a slick cab interior, but he did shame me into LED headlights, wipers, and this morning, painting the fuel gauge and putting on the HTC struts.
But she does pull like a little son of a gun, I'm finally done with tinkering with that Roco E-truck concept.

I'm really digging your Seaboard work here lately.  The E you did went over well with some friends of mine.

The CMR lift bridge project was finished just in time for 20 members of the Once-A-Month Model Railroad Club (Springfield, IL) to see it in use on Thursday night.  Nothing like finishing at the last minute to get the old BP elevated.  All the HO and larger scale members were amazed by the fidelity of Lok Sound decoders and sugar cube speakers which were in all three trains run on DCC that night.  Together with three independent loops of DC there were six trains in action at all times for two hours with only two minor derailments.  The running club joke is that Murphy always pays a visit on the night that you host.











Best regards,

Roger
