Ramp being installed

The ramp is actually a S scale model built by Doug Rochefort. The cardboard is for the roadway alongside.

 Digging through my photos the other day and came up with a few views of my module being upgraded. Here they are two views of my ramp being installed on my On30" module about 8 years ago....George Dutka

The cardboard and area around the ramp is covered with Woodland Scenic plaster cloth. Lou Sassi's goop formula was then applied. followed by some earth colored paint. I will take a photo of how it looks today shortly.

What's in the Box!

 


Here is a view of what came in my Sandy River Car Shops boxcar kit. Plans, parts and the basic frame already assembled. Now to find time to continue the project. This actually is a SR&RL dairy products car...George Dutka

Spring Update

Two of the On2 kits I picked up a few years back second hand that need to be built...maybe I will look at them again this coming winter. I also have a part built flat car to finish.

There has been a lot going on in my life this year, none of it modeling related. We have had a lot of health issues in our family which needs all my attention so I have not been able to do any modeling since early in January. My posts probably reflect that point as when I have time I search my photo files for material to post. I have a good amount of prototype photos to scan once I get back at that but that may not happen till later this summer or fall. 

Although the contents of this blog will be thin for a bit I will keep posts coming as best I can...George Dutka

Tank Car on the turntable


The only reason for the tank car partly on the turntable is the yard is full at the moment and the hose to the storage tank will still reach to this location. You can see the end of the storage tank in the right end of the photo...George Dutka
