Re: Bigelov's projects

Re: Bigelov's projects

Ah, the age old question of pale or red bricks? This link shows a pic of an actual narrow gauge shed (for a Latvian peat line), which I have also used for inspiration for this project. It is from the Russian Narrow Paravoz website https://narrow.parovoz.com/newgallery/pg_view.php?ID=137948&LNG=R...

Re: Bigelov's projects

I have fun making and photographing, so here is a daytime shot. The shed was based on, but modified from, the truck garage in the computer game Spintires/Mud Runner. I have added a background from an in-game screenshot. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52050441412_3fe843361d_c.jpg Here is a scree...

Re: Nanaimo Spring Meet

Bill, As ConducTTor said, the centre frogs should connect electrically to the outer rail. Here is a pic of a 2mm finescale double slip switch I made (in 10.5mm broad gauge, and still on the Templot plan). You can see the cut in the PC board dividing the two halves nicely.

Re: Bigelov's projects

Hi Ian, My interest and energy for doing the hobby also waxes and wanes. Hence months of quietness from me on the forum here :) But I do try to keep up with what is posted. I progress on a project and get to a point where I am unsure how to proceed on some aspect (I am very much a builder!), so work...

Re: Bigelov's projects

Hi Ian, The question is, are you showing anything at the Albury show this year?? I am not planning on showing the module. I actually don't know the first thing about putting something in a model rail show! But I will be attending. I heard you were at the show last year (from Phil) but our paths did ...

Re: Bigelov's projects

I have been working on my narrow gauge engine shed recently and finally finished the lighting and laying down the first waves of grass. So here is a night shot of it hard at work. https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/52044086149_f03f8949cf_c.jpg This module is made to be a drop in/removable section f...
