Aka my Ash Valley Rairoad (Currently indoors) named after my sister. So a quick backstory I have my original LGB Starter Set from 1986 whe nI was 2 and my Generation 2 Bachman Big hauler from 1992. Both are being upgraded and modified to fit a late 1800s-1900ss style layout that fits more in line with the time period of Red Dead Redepmption 2. So I repainted m y stainz/tender and big hauler shell with this baby blue and they will be sporting red and gold on them. I have my decal sheet mocked up for them just waiting to have them made by G-Scale Graphics. The LGB set has had their european brake hoses and bumpers cut off because link and pin couplers from LGB are expensive and kadee's are cheaper. The motorized tender is using my big haulers old pilot buffer as it's own rear buffer which will be installed when the kadees come. My big hauler shell is going to go on an annie gen 6 chassis with a matching tender. Both bachmann and lgb bobber cabooses will be sporting interiors. I stripped down my old Aristocraft BN Caboose that was broke, parted it out to repair my other aristo bn caboose and stole the interior parts for the bachmann caboose. I'm also detailing the engine inteiors with figures, mics details like lunch boxes, oil cans shovels throttle levers etc. The LGB Stainz is gonig to retain mosto f it's german charm as i love how lgb tried to americanize it. But than again the real Stainz model is a combination of the 2 surviving stainz units 2 and 4 I believe. Massoth sound/decoders will be added later with led upgrades on the units.The stainz will also get a modern stainz/tender jumper plug upgrade as finding the old cables is hard enough. So now onto what I jsut ordered today, I ordered replacement end platforms for my lgb bobber caboose, boiler grabs for the stainz, and a new backhead interior for the stainz with gold valve wheels on it. I'm also painting the roof of the lgb bobber caboose brown to chagne up the accents and I will be photographing and updating this thread as parts coem in and get installed. I started in G-Scale as a kid and It looks like I'm finishing in it. For anyone who knows my HO Scale thread, it's on hold as im still waiting on parts to show up. i guess anything worth waiting for is worth waiting for. But anyawys. All aboard.
