I was just discussing the future of my shelf layout, and was asked if there was an ongoing build thread on the Railwire. Well, there is. http://www.therailwire.net/forum/index.php?topic=26704.0 It’s been a long time since I’ve updated it, but I wanted to link it up here for posterity.
Creating a yard office for Windsor St has been a long undertaking, but now I’m in the construction phase, and things are starting to look good.
Converting the engine terminal from its original use when it was Hagerstown to its current use as Windsor St is one of the bigger scenicing jobs on the layout. This weekend, I made a big step forward on it.
My parents and I spent a lot of time at Strasburg Rail Road when I was a kid. So it was only natural that I’d want a model of it. It was a tall order, but my dad made it happen when I was a kid.
Eastern Seaboard Models makes some really great cars (including an X58 boxcar that I STILL laud over my HO modeler friends). They also have a yearly photo contest, and for the third year in a row, I got a spot on the podium.
