KIngfield, Maine Watercolouring

Always liked this view of Kingfield, Maine on the SR&RL Ry. Glad to have the print in my modeling workshop.
Back during the National Narrow Gauge Convention held in Maine a few years back I picked up this print for I think $5 or $10 at the structure housing the layout at Booth Bay Railway Village...I now have it mounted in a frame.

Lube Shed

This HO scale lube shed turned out well and can be set anywhere around a yard adding extra interest without taking up very little space.
One of my more recent upgrades. Check my White River Division blog for more photos and what I did to improve the look...George Dutka

An O Scale Creation

How's this for an O scale switcher.
My friend Terry I worked with on the CN has built an interesting creations using everything from model trucks and cars to engine parts. This model is DCC controlled with sounds such as an interesting sounding horn...George Dutka

It makes noises as interesting as it looks.
Not sure where this tiny compressor is from but Terry is one that can take apart and rebuild a real compressor in no time at all.

Albany Expo On30" Layout

An overall look at a FOS scale model on one of the door modules.
At the recent Albany Fine Scale Model Railroad Expo there was a nice On30" sectional layout built on doors. Each modeler did their own thing. These are a few photos that were on their Facebook page which gives one an overall view of a few of the sections. I took a few detailed views which I will share shortly, but I should have stood back and took an overall view...George Dutka


One can see the door underneath the contours.
