Just testing out the new digital camera.

Spent a little too much on e-bay the last couple weeks, but this was a bargain (I think). Not a runner yet, but the motor looks pretty simple, so I should be able to bring it back.

Sorry about the terrible pictures, I am looking around for a better digital camera, Just a couple of kitchen table in-progress shots of the terminal station. I'm building the terminal on a 12" X48" 1/4" plywood board, it will drop into a space on the benchwork when it's ready. The pla...

Not much progress to report, I'm hunting for a better digital camera, so I can take some in-progress pictures. Might end up just digging out my old Minolta SLR. I did start test fitting the track layout for the passenger terminal. Might be able to get something done there this weekend Aaron, From a ...

Chris, Well, not for me unfortunately. Only place I could find them in North America is on the far side of Canada, and then it's $25 plus shipping and the cost of a international money order (I don't do the credit card thing, too easy to get into trouble). So for me anything Metcalfe is a pretty goo...

Thev and Chris,
Thanks for the links! went into my saved file. 8)

George,
Not going digital. I looked into it before, But I'm going to stay with analog for now. I'll have to have insulated sections and electrical switches to control the reversing section.

Here is the roof. Still have details and stairs and stuff to do. http://i29.photobucket.com/albums/c263/cubtime100/signalshedroof1.jpg Feel free to print them up and use it or do whatever you want with it. It might take a little adjustment in the printer setup to get the scale close.

It's cold here in Ohio in the winter, my OO equipment has only just started to arrive, so I had some time to play with this. We did have paper buildings here in the US when I was a kid, but I have not seen any in years. Metcalfe kits look pretty neat, but I'd have to order them from Canada. So..I th...
