Bar Mills New Offering


Bar Mills has a new offering out this week. A REA express building in O scale. When I checked their website it is also offered in HO scale. I think this might be a great addition to my On30" modeling. If you order it directly from them they are throwing in Woodland Scenic figures package free as a bonus...George Dutka

SR&RL HOn30" Boxcar

This kit was my entrance into the world of HOn30"

I found these views in my files that I took of my first build in HOn30". I had ordered the car by mail sometime in the early 1980's. I got back into model railroading in December 1979 following the MR cover article of the C&DR Ry. Hard to believe that I entered modeling in a scale that one has to scratch-build or kit build. I think the car turned out well considering the era. About a year later I ordered Sloan brass etchings building a Forney. Not long after I did get into HO scale standard gauge joining a local modular railroad club....George Dutka

O Scale Moose

A view on my one foot wide diorama attached to my module. The moose that kind of makes the scene is a 3D printed model I picked up at the National Narrow Gauge Convention in Maine a few years back. It was an offering Gary of PLW.

Altering HO Scale Trucks

Here are four different views of trucks all made from the same model. One is cut down to a pickup truck while two others are flat beds. They find their way into my HOn30" dioramas from time to time...George Dutka

A Look Across the Bridge

The conductor must be waving at me taking the photo as there is no one else around. The bridge is a Hunterline kit built at a hands-on WOD-NMRA clinic.

 An add-on diorama to my module. I took a group of photos of the caboose on it some time ago...George Dutka
