Working on my E7 for the Gopher/Badger.  I decided I didn't want to deal with the cookie-cutters on the LL mechanism, so I'm using a Kato unit.

What are you going to do for the fuel tank?

Are you going to do the parlor observation car?

Yep, I had some custom car sides, but I blew on that one.. so I'm starting over with two cars that'll be sacrificed.

IF you have them 3D printed, I'm in for several if possible!

I wish  ;)    this'll be old fashioned cutting/sawing/gluing.

A nice, quiet weekend at home. Excited to tackle the 29" long Aliso Street bridge extension project for my "Downtown LA" yards. The bridge is too long to fit on my workbench, assembly on a table. Styrene, basswood, and 1/16" MDF laser cut railings. So far so good, concerned with warpage...

@Dave V   Holy Krap Dave!  I am astounded...really.  The track-level vista presented from 1:40 as we're pulling out of Placerville to about 2:15 is boggling.  Painting the entire wall sky-blue was a really wise idea, and confirms my plans to do the same in my train room.  Close-ups of trackside scenery are simply top-level.  I see you got the platform warpage taken care of and the Jays crossing crossbucks and road timbers finished.  :)   Just excellent!

Cheerio!

Thanks Bob!  You know, part of why that works so well is that this neighborhood was built with 9' basement ceilings, so with the very limited viewing angle of the camera, the ceiling is out of view for most of the ride.  That same narrow camera angle unfortunately cuts things out on curves, so for example you never get to see the Ophir depot as you pass it.

I ended up rebuilding the Placerville platform from styrene.

Using only junk I had laying around, and my two left hands, I made a complete mess.



Yup.  Nothing like a scrap of c55 track to add some life to your passenger consist.



But it works!



And it looks nice and twinkly following that nice smooth K-4 thanks to @Lemosteam and the Rivarossi pick up wipers from George @nickelplate759

@wm3798,

Holy crap, that C55 track trick is freakin' hilarious.  I love it!!!  Were you out of C80 or wouldn't it fit?  ;)

Well...  I think "resourceful" might be too weak a word to describe that!

Love the shot coming into Placerville, Jay's Crossing. The oil depot reminds me of El Portal on the YVRR.
