The Imperial Sugar Company as rendered on NTRAK modules.
My SP-3 class 4-10-2 hard at work..
Test shot from a new and not completely finished section of the layout.
Last week I bought a 3D Printer. Here's some of the first results.
Tank Treads with open wheel gaps, for the Micro-Trains M1 Abrams.
And the most impressive prints so far....
N Scale People!
Wowsers, those turned out great!!
Hauling the black diamonds in WV.
Shrunk myself down to HO scale, donned my conductor's uniform with a Santa Fe hat, plunked down a Santa Fe step stool, and collected a train ticket from a boarding passenger in Davidsville.
My first foray into HO since childhood. I repaired a very used kato dd51 model and installed DCC. A local modeler very kindly invited some of us N scalers to run on his personal layout and I managed to sneak a run it after a full day of yard work. It's really tempting me to expand back into HO!
I love this scene !!!! But I don't think I'd like going down that fire escape
Great work everyone for one more week!
I managed to finish a small tree grove in the South Pasadena module. Here a foreman from the shipper is overseeing a local pickup of a loaded boxcar.
Sometimes it's nice when a pro crew can get video...local sac TV station promoting Railfair.

Well, here is a guy who had no issues with that. You can even see him wearing a yellow shirt in the model photo above.
I had to go back and look for the guy in the yellow shirt! Awesome bunch of modeling! Candy, it wouldn't be so bad up there, a bit breezy sometimes, but exhilarating fun!
my wife spent the hobby budget
he is 9 weeks old, 22.2 pounds of Great Dane puppy. we are learning that we need to put our shoes away...
Candy, that's a whole lot better than sliding down a four-foot diameter slanted totally enclosed tube onto a (hopefully) soft rubbish pile from four stories up. One of my school buildings had such, and the first apartment building we lived in.
I love Danes, especially Brindles. My best memory of a Dane was when I was sittiing on the sidewalk weeding the banquet, space between sidewalk and street for you non-New Orleanians. BTW, That's pronounced "Banket". 'Tanyrate I heard this "click, click, click" approaching. When it stopped I looked up into the lovely face of a Dane looking down at me, asking "Whacha Doin'?". Talk about intimidation.
I don't like high places ! I get petrified
I never heard of such a thing !!!! That's awful !
Notice how, in the backdrop, the blue sky changes to a gray haze near the horizon. That is a technique most modelers miss. Good work !
