I’ve made great progress on some freight car kits in the last month. Consider this post as an update from my workbench.Continue reading “Workbench update – April 2020”
I can’t believe it is almost mid-October. It seemed like August was just a week ago. The last several weeks have flown right by as several projects have kept me busy.Continue reading “Time out!”
A couple blog features have been updated with new information. This happens periodically and it’s important to keep these resources up to date.Continue reading “Housecleaning”
It’s been hot and humid in middle Tennessee, plus I’ve been in and out of town. I haven’t done much modeling but a couple of tasks were completed. The lead photo shows the M-15 boxcar trucks. Of course, the B&O couldn’t use the same type of trucks on different car sub-classes. It’s just another detail to work through as the models await a decent day for the spray booth.Continue reading “Tidbits”
If you are a regular visitor here, you have probably noticed a format change. I started this blog in May of 2009 just after moving to Chagrin Falls, Ohio. The earliest posts were lost after a hiccup at the ISP host so the archives do not extend back to the beginning. The same template had been used for nearly ten years and some elements were not functioning well anymore. A refresh had been on my mind for a few years but I was uncertain how different templates would affect the presentation. Every now and then this past year, I’ve played around testing various templates with the content and finally found one I like. I hope you do, too.
I found a statement or purpose among the text of the very first post May 27, 2009. Reviewing it nearly ten years later, I think it’s a bit wordy but the sentiment remains the same.
This website is dedicated to documenting model railroad projects with a focus on building, designing and operating model railroads. The target audience consists of other model railroad enthusiasts who are eager to learn and expand their skills and knowledge. I will work towards weekly posts to update current personal projects. On occasion, there may be more than one post per week. I enjoy this hobby on many diverse levels and want to share my experiences with others. It is a great reward to pass along techniques and knowledge so others may find similar enjoyment of a great hobby.
Onward we go into the next decade!
