I have been slowly working on an assortment of upgrades to my Canadian. Up first, fix the tilted missprinted drumhead by replacing it with a new custom printed decal. Although the white Canadian drumhead did exist, the red one seemed to be more common. I have seen a number of photos of the real Yoho Park with the red drumhead, so thats the route I went. A new detailing thread will follow shortly.

For reference, here is the red Canadian drumhead:

Looks really good, and it is not crooked like the original one.

Most of the pictures I have seen is there is no rear light on the roof until VIA...Is that correct?

Thanks! First time playing with homemade decals, pretty happy with the results.

That is correct, and this one will eventually be removed and filled in once I have a good paint match recipe sorted out. So far its looking like a mix of Tamiya titanium silver and flat aluminum, but the exact proportions are still being tweaked a bit.

Milwaukee Road homebuilt oddball diesel #5900. There were two built and they were often called "Bulldogs". The shell is a 3D print and the mechanism was scratchbuilt by my partner in crime Jim Starbuck. It also has ESU sound.

Wow that is a weird one , maybe with all that room in there you could find a chip that you can record of a barking dog instead of the bell or whatever . Sure to win the " beast in show award " at the next N Scale hoe-down .

This came in the mail this week. The absolute best application for clouds.

I’ve been working on the group of Malahat modules a bit lately. The Arbutus canyon module is living along. I installed a bunch of rocks castings, added a fill, worked on the river bed, and added various bits of fallen rock at the base of cliffs and such.

I couldn’t resist.

Fall/Autum is finally HERE!!  :D :P

I like this time of year..(The same season the FCN is modeled in..)
Cooler weather, trees turning color and watching my college football games while working on my railway projects..
(Badgers lost today!!  :facepalm:)

This saturday, I am finishing my revised trackside signals and railway crossing signage.



These sigs (which on the FCN are switch position indicators, for the three passing siding) will replace the single light units.  These are made from the leftover pieces from my Grade Crossing structures, that I had completed some months ago. The LEDs (anode) are soldered to the masts, which is the (+) and a section of DCC wire runs up through the center of the brass tube and is the (cathode) (-) to complete the electrical circuit.  The attached signs, give the location.  (FC - Ford City, North - which end of the siding). and the number "2" is the Accessory Address to operate the switch.
The Crossing/Stop signs were cutout from the set of signage, that I had printed on photo paper.  Took a while to find the darn thing.  Hadn't seen it in so many years, thought I had thrown it away...  :o
The posts are .030 square styrene stock, painted Rail Tie BROWN...

Working on a water tower -- first attempt .. will end up redoing it or making this one a background model ..

Converted to Nscale, printed on a Photon .. created the cross braces from .015x.020 styrene .. If I do it again, will not print the ladder - but use commercial ladder stock or brass

In N scale, it might make sense to print the support and the tank as one piece ..  you can use tinkercad to merge the parts ..

Good model . fills a hole in the layout
