Additional rails arrived, Will position them and level everything this weekend.
Hmmmmmm wonder if ATLAS does rail connectors for this size? :Crazy:

Wonder if I need white glue to set the ballast? :Crazy:

Oh, oh.... the mile-long loop is going to materialize...No bonding agent needed for that sort of gravel - they just cling together and become concrete-hard with time. OK, next year the loco will be there - excelsior style maybe?
Who cares for N scale any longer?:glad:

Time to put the caboose ontop the new chassis. Back up with the tractor and get a good alignment. Next jack it up so that the wheels sit on top of extra ties. Carfully back it over the track.

Yesterday was time to build a full size model of an ore car.  Welded up the frame and attached the small wheels.

Detail: the bumps that look like rivets or bolt heads are domed thumb tack. Enough paint and they look authentic.

Time to weather using what ever spray paint cans I have laying around. What do you think?

Later I will fill it with dirt and use it as a planter box :Crazy:
