My goal of building 30 of the two truck cars is looking attainable. 

I have 22 done now and rolling chassis for the rest.  Still need to add decking and details. 

I made a steel boxcar today to add variety to the fleet.

Insulated coffee cup wrap from the coffee shop. 

You will find some are kinda narrow and others wide. 

Work great for roofing and many other things. 

The window blinds and awning on right side of this building are an example. 

Also the trash cans.

You can make your own from cookie pan aluminum. 

Two sheets for a buck from the discount store. 

Just takes a little time scoring it over some corrugated styrene.

I was just taking a break from work and reread the first 40 pages on this discussion.

I think what you said back on about page 3...


"I am just an average modeler at best. Anyone can achieve this level of modeling.
I have little patience so I like quick / short projects.
That is why I choose such simple methods and materials.
If a model takes more than a few hours over a couple days, I kinda give up on it.
Throw it together fast and cover it with paint quickly."


That is a good philosophy.

I find myself being very much the same.

I need to post that over my work bench,
except the work bench is often the dining table
and I think my lady friend wouldn't appreciate extra signage.


As I went through I kept looking at your track.
I have a pile of beat to hell flex track that needs to be turned into hand laid track.
I also like your technique of just gluing the track down.

Some time when you have a moment,
a tutorial on making track would be greatly appreciated.

I am really curious about those little stub switches you have.
