Some of my old HO scale buildings I built years ago are up for sale on eBay. They're not perfect and I'm really just looking to free up some space in the closet. Look up user dn5992 for them! #hoscale #187scale #modelrailroading #modelbuilding #walthers

MOST RECENT

Today was a surgical day on the layout, during a recent visit from a good railroader friend, he suggested I improve my yard by adding a second exit to the east end of the yard via the engine service track. Basically I've added a runaround track to the top of the yard. I can already see the benifit and love it but boy, do I hate trackwork.
Taking my time, I cut out the spaces where the new turnouts would be placed one at a time, cleaning off dried glue and feeding power wires through holes where needed, I do not solder directly to switches, rather to the rail joiners, nor do I glue them down in the odd case I decide to change the track plan.
Installing the extra turnout on the yard ladder was easy, the turnout install on the engine service track was a bit different, considering I layed the track there with no set radius, but removing glue and getting the existing flextrack to "flex" again, every thing lined up fine. After testing the track with a runthrough of some motive power and happy with the setup I glued down the new section of track down to fresh roadbed and placed weights on it.
Configuring existing trackwork is (in my eyes) a difficult thing to do for the average modeler, I still struggle with it, and I was not looking forward to doing this. The most important thing I can stress to you is to take your time. Plan your list of operation, aquire all the tools you need and go slow.

Taking a break from the layout today, so I thought I'd share another photo from the old layout.
At the time I sold it it was about halfway done (to me) but the scenery was about 90% completed. An Alco SW4 has moved it's way around a string of loaded hoppers for a short pull to the power plant located out of the photo, I plan on recreating small coal operations on the new layout. The switcher is a bachmann model that I repainted and weathered for the MKT.

From one end to the other of the newly painted faces, I'm glad I finished these, more in part because of the photographers curve in the start of the video. They will definitely be a major centerpiece of the layout.

The 2 big rock faces spanning nearly 1/3rd of the layout took me the better part of 3 hours to paint, blend and wash this morning. But taking my time going through the same process I've been using yielded consistent results compared to the previously completed faces.
Blending is my own little technique I've come up with to get a good even saturation of color and highlights before the last step of washing. I take a 1" sponge brush with a grey of my choice and wipe most of the paint off it. I then dry brush the most outer parts of the face, immediately coming back with a paintbrush semi wet with water and wash out the area. (Video) it works very well and I can repeat this process as many times as I want until I'm happy with it. In the picture with the paintbrush, the left is and un blended area, the right is the side I've completed.

A hair under 4 months into construction and it's really starting to look like something!

The backdrop is finished... for now at least, there is a good chance I will go through it again and touch up spots or add smaller details.

#walthers stack car ...thought I'd do something different for me...way out of my era but maybe a modern train for me...now I just need 50 more just like it...lol.

A happy 100 followers post is in order! With the rate the layout is taking shape I will hopefully be ready to start scenery by the new year. Being my favorite part I am itching to get back into it.
A shot from the previous layout, FM #160 sits on track one of the diamond corp mine, I heavily weathered this locomotive with an airbrush and paints. While airbrushing it, I inadvertently mixed in too much thinner, the effect came out to simulate a wet look on the locomotive, almost as if it looks likes it's drying out in the sun after a sudden early summer rain shower.

Today I had about an hour or so to work on putting down the base color for the 2 biggest rock faces on the layout. I will be glad when this is all done because it kills my wrist trying to get good coverage.

Application of the last coat of thin black wash, it's a 30/70 mix of black paint and water, I would rather it be too thin than heavy so I can go over it again quickly to get the exact results I wish.

Coming back around for the final bout on the east end rockfaces, I went over the 2 existing ones I completed earlier to get rid of the yellow, there was too much of it, other than that, I used the same techniques and they came out just the way I imagined. All of these photos were taken after applying 2 coats of a thin black wash.

This #hoscalediorama is a blend of real landscape photos and the constructed #hoscale scene. The car is by #walthers and weathered by me. The shack is all #scratchbuilt using #northeasternscalelumber and the roof is made out tin foil shaped by using old, flat computer harddrive cables. The chair is by #vectorcuts and was really difficult to put together. The rest of the scene is all real. I blended it all together in #photoshop and then added an old tintype layer for effect. .

My good friend @rockinmike.mccune making good use of the "photographers curve" on the upper level of the layout. #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

More and more painting, in regards to my comment of this taking 2 to 3 weeks to complete, I finished a 3rd of the back drop in a few hours, now I am no artist in any sense but I am very happy with the outcome. #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

It's time to do my best impersonation of Bob Ross, various shades of green and a 1" sponge brush are what I used to put down to first layer of tree canopy onto the backdrop. Being I have never really painted anything before, I will try my best using photos and my imagination to recreate distant trees and foliage outcroppings on the backdrop. #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

Tonight I was able to finish up the blue base on the backdrop in prep for the final painting of clouds and lower treetop scenery. Keeping budget in mind, I picked up the color from my local walmart for around 8 bucks. #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

A look back a mere few week to a local coal drag, the MKT owned 5 FM locomotives total, being this is my favorite, I hope to aquire 3 more in the near future.

Anniversary trip finds! Colleen wanted me to get the pink one, I wanted it because it’s DM&E. #hoscale #walthers #Athearn #Accurail

New projects already in the pipeline!!
3 more row houses to create a nice looking New York street diorama. 5 row houses, a sidewalk, trees along the street and some parked cars.

Couldn’t help my self! I had to order this after seeing a video with this kit on YouTube. It’s a magnificent building! I’m thinking of making it into a natural history museum. Buy some plastic toy dinosaur or a whale and put in the great hall.

Today began the long process of rock painting! With my cheap craft store acrylic paints I began after giving the entire face a base coat of "steel grey" from folkart, the next step was self explanatory. Following pictures and also putting my own touch on it, I layered on the paints in order (pictured) using the dry brush method with a small paintbrush. When all the colors where done I came back with a 1" sponge brush to highlight the surface of the rocks using a grey and a warm white color.
After I complete all the rocks on the layout I will come back and apply a black wash.

I figured with the milestone of sealing the layout reached I would share a quick over view of the layout. It is 9.5'x11.5' and occupies my only spare room in the house. #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

The sealing is complete! As I let the last hill dry on the west end I masked off the turnout points and frogs and painted the last bit of track on the upper level, I'm happy with the way everything has come out so far. After waiting an hour, I used my bright boy track cleaner and refreshed the rails to run a test train, I'm happy to report there were no glitches.

The next process will be painting the backdrop and all existing rock faces as well as tunnel portals, retaining walls and erosion spots, I have no doubt this will take me 2 weeks at minimum.

Sand train is in the works. Waiting for more model releases. Cement building being repurposed for the frac sand industry. #wsor #model #walthers #americanlimited #athearn #hoscale #hobby

An old photo of my previous layout, the running rock valley. Scenery wise I will use the same process but on the new one I will be trying static flock grass in many places.

This morning I finished sealing all the layout but for one small hill as the sculptimold is still setting from being applied 3 days ago. The west end hatch is still drying. I started on cleaning up the line around the base of the backdrop, spots where sculptimold had dried to it were sanded off with sander block and course pad from a rotating sander. I then used my dust buster with a brush tip to vaccum away the debris and repainted the area, also focusing on the lines of the hills that will soon have foliage painted on them #modelrailroading #trains #nscale #ngauge #trains #hobby #hobbyist #nscaletrains #modeltrains #mkt #layout #atlas #microtrains #walthers  #MRA #bachmann #toytrains

Late November. I'm still sealing parts of the layout, in a span of 2 hours this morning I made it to the the 2/3rd completed mark, hopefully by the weekend I will be done. I will then clean the loose bits of plaster off the back drop in preparation to paint it (another big task)
