Current project: restoring a 3' x 6' layout that we got from ConducTTor years ago. Following one of the turnouts coming apart, we opted to put it in long-term storage, which was not good for the plasterwork. The layout sat in storage in Georgia for almost 3 years, which I feel was not a good idea, but at the time, I was wanting to go "bigger" with a TT layout, so this layout got put on the wayside.

The plan is to restore it in time for a train show that we plan on going to in St. Cloud, MN in November, 2019. (Imagine, FOUR North American Proto TT Scale trains running at once...)

Paint has been applied to the damaged plaster areas to help provide an undercoating for new applications of model grass and rocks.

Here is the section where the turnout has had to be removed, as the outer rail had come out of the sleepers and would not go back in:

Very nice. I got my "TT Start" in 3mm TT, so I will always have a soft spot for 3mm TT.

Gorgeous buildings, but please tell him that model truck by Zvezda is not GAZ-AA, but ZIS-5. So it is not copy of the Ford AA, but Autocar Dispatch.

I recently finished scratchbuilding a group of three Ammendorf wagons.

Image

They were made in the late 1940's to the early 50's in East Germany for the use on Russian narrow gauge lines. The workshop and steam generator set used for getting power in remote locations. The passenger freight car is just that, a wagon used for dual purposes on the developing narrow gauge network.

The chimneys and vents are my first attempt at 3D printing.
