    The major hacking is done, and now begins the tedious "plastic surgery" to make this look like a passenger/freight depot.

    No,,, I model HO, but this.... maybe my brain shrunk:D :D ...really is Nscale.

    This is two Atlas passenger station kits, one has been "mirror imaged" and attached to the other.

    Yes, the new freight engine and rolling stock I previously posted is also Nscale, in preparation for an out of state trip, and visit.

    I thought for some reason it was On30 you were working in, I guess form all the posts you and Catt have going back and forth. That makes your paint and decal job even more impressive!

    Tyson,
    I am also into On30. "Variety is the spice of life", and lately I've had a taste for spice.
    The station project is one that I've wanted to try for a long time, and didn't have any place for an HO scale station. Dabbling in N gave me the opportunity to finally build the station.
    A while back I posted pics of the Atlas station in HO, built as a two story,(the shipchandler's, and shipwrights shed).
    While I "blamed" Catt for tempting me into On30, I was considering that for some time beforehand.

    Pete,
    That's a great looking bash!:cool:
    What brand of engine is the steamer?
    Be carful what you "dabble" in, it can lead to addiction!:D
    I dabbled in N scale too, & I'm still there!
    And it doesn't help any to have guys like Tyson & Catt, showing off their handywork, & egging you on!
    But this is great seeing you work your brand of magic in all these different scales!
    (btw...I'm officially "egging you on" now! :D)

    Charlie,
    The loco is the Bachmann Spectrum 2-8-0. I modified it to match my two HO scale Spectrums. Egg all you want!, Catt had a chance with On30, N...............I don't think so. The one benefit of working in N scale is that I might be able to do some finer work in the larger scales.
