That makes sense. The Brits seem to do things different than everyone else.

Woodie,
Your bulldozer forray reminds me of geometry - you've gone off a tangent, again, haven't you?! You've just gotta love this hobby!

OK, here's the last (maybe) that you'll hear or see about this subject. May I present to you:



The infamous dozer as she appears today! It's always harder to "unbuild" something, especially something with somewhat delicate parts. But I thought about it and obsessed about it all last night...I really wanted something "older" than what I built...and after looking at Si's comment about "yeller dozers", I decided to get out the Exacto #1 and some yellow Floquil (reefer yellow) and get after it. So after a gloomy, rainy day, cold day in Big D...I am DONE...again.
Backdated to an older bulldozer with a winch to raise the blade and the overhead structure to handle it, and a coat of yellow paint, I hope I am done with this thing!

Now all I need to do is paint and mess with about 200 pieces of "shop equipment" to inhabit the new building. AND build the last Lindberg Model T kit I have with it being worked on inside. Geez, I build one stinkin' thing and it "morphs" and then I have to build a whole bunch of other things...and on and on.
Yes, Mark, I am on a tangent but not the type of track (hmmm) that I am usually on.
Come to think of it, there ain't much tangent trackage on the layout, so never mind.


***Jim and Comet the dog are getting tired of all this upheaval!***

Woodie,

Nicely done!! I've always had a soft spot for construction equipment. Saw alot of highway construction around my hometown while growing up and it was fun to watch.

See you couldn't resist the beam and cable lift version. Nicely done and very much in keeping with the era.

A SHOP TOO FAR.....so far.
Things just keep growing or maybe just getting more complicated. Here are 3 new photos of what's happening at the mechanic's shop. None of this stuff is glued down...yet. This structure is located on the lift-out that crosses the kitchen door so everything here will have to be glued down with massive amounts of glue because sometimes this piece is hung up sideways while not in use (when trains aren't running).



some of the "stuff" is set in place, probably not where it will be glued, but so I can check it out. The Model T is having it's motor pulled out for an overhaul. The stash of 1:35 field tool kits and other junk is barely affected, so far.



This "old timey" photo shows more tools, etc. that are to be fixed in place.

THE LAST PICTURE SHOW...well, not the last pictures but the LAST (maybe) one of the repair shop. This one was taken around dark just before "beer 30" begins.



I got around to installing lights, all I need is to build the roof now. My friend Daniel Caso is sending me a mould for Spanish tile roofing that is not only made from individual tiles but is 1:35 scale! So however long it takes to ship from the other side of the world to Texas, that's how long it will be till the roof is built. In the mean time, I believe that I will run a train tonight.
BTW, everything is glued down in the shop, the section can be stood on it's side. Ahhh, progress.
