Modeling Wiscasset, Maine - WW&F in O Scale

One of the Wiscasset waterfront structures offered by Deerfield River Laser.

If you are planning on modeling WW&F you likely will want to included the waterfront scene in Wiscasset, Maine. Deerfield River Laser kits offer all the structures one would need as flats or full structures. I took a few photos of these offerings last year. Some other views will be seen in upcoming Wordless Wednesdays...George Dutka

SR&RL Structure

The Maplewood flag stop is in really good condition located in Philips, Maine.
On my visit during the 2016 fall NNGC I visited the site of the SR&RL museum. Many of the structures are placed along the line. Here is one near the roundhouse...George Dutka

B&SR Tank Car - On30"

The finished On30 model.

A few years back Peter and I painted and lettered two Bachmann On30 tank cars. I believe we also lowered the trucks as per Bob Hayden's article in the Narrow Gauge Gazette some years ago.
My tank was undecorated so it was painted silver. We built a wood frame around the tank such as on the prototype and following Bob's article. I weathered mine using Bragdon powders.

The B&SR letter is from a set made for a flat car project years ago by Trevor Marshall. Kind of a neat model once all done...George Dutka

The flat is painted boxcar red with a deck which is painted with Floquil grime and wash's by Hunterline.
