    Nice shot Kurt, great camera angle. Enjoy the summer ( that's what we do here in Canada because we know that winter will be very looooong ).

    Jeffrey , EngineerKyle nice subtle weathering
    EngineerKyle, are you using weathering powder for the rust on the hopper car ?

    Thanks for the info EngineerKyle.
    I googled "tempura powder" but all I got back was a bazillion links to ... Japanese sushi recipes lol.
    Is it like a pigment ? who makes it ?
    If it's a pigment it shoild be very interesting to make N scale dirt roads ( mix it with spackling compound )

    Jacques is right, Les. Usually, the yellow/orange cast is caused by tungsten lighting, while fluorescent tubes will give everything a greenish hue. Your camera should have settings that will compensate for either.

    Sure. I still have lots of equipment with them. It's a gradual process of transition to magnetic couplers and I'm lazy. :)

    Here is that turnout I was building last week. It is about done now, I just need to cut some electricla gaps, and it is ready to put on the layout.

    Just been doing a little mr work today. The rolling stock from my newly acquired Athearn set looked too clean, so I weathered them a bit with alcohol and black acrylic treatment.

    I am writing an article abut handlaying for the nex e-mag. I don't intend on going into too much detail-just some basic tracklaying overview techniques, what I found to work, what doesn't work, what I learned, etc. Reason being is that I am basically using ideas developed by others, and I don't want anyone to confuse them as my own ideas. My turnouts are made using the techniques of Stephen Hatch:

    In the case of the 3-rail turnout, the methods are the same, just a whole lot more rails.

    It's quite normal for a train set to be released in several roadnames, but only one version of the box.

    Who said anything about collecting. I buy them to use. I don't give 2 cents about what's on the box other than the manufacturer's name. The rolling stock will be added to what's on my layout and the loco will be repainted for MGRy and added to my fleet of F7's. I believe that's ten of them now.
