Hi John.

Thanks for that.


Well, as a confirmed 'pencil & paper' track plan drawer...

...I took a leap into the unknown today & downloaded a couple of track plan drawing softwares to try out.

'SCARM' & 'AnyRail'

" One small step for a Moose & a giant leap for Moose kind "

I think that's a Neil Armstrong quote BTW, not John Armstrong. ;)


In drawing out slotcar tracks, I have to say that using software was a big step forward in trying out a lot of different ideas quickly.

Once you know how to use it of course !

Slotcar track planning is a very different ballgame to railroads though.



Doug might like this as an F1 fan.

Looking at those earlier photos, that's quite a wagon production line you've got going there Si. It'll be interesting to see a train in due course - and somewhere to run it on!

Hi Doug :wave:


Yeah ... Due course, is probably about right !


As for somewhere to run it on, don't anyone hold their breath on that one !


If I knew what I was after, it might make things a tad easier.

But creating acres of blank benchwork to stare at, seems likely to be a bit of a waste of time at the moment.


Perhaps I'm just not a layout kinda guy.

There are modelers out there who don't do 'layouts', so I'm told !

Perhaps I might be one of them.


The car building is fun though, no major plans with that, just making what seems OK on the day !

That session was meant to build a rickety 4-wheel boxcar.

But I ended up with the makings of four new 'disconnect style', truck based 4-wheelers...

...and an outside-braced boxcar & stockcar of about 16', on '60s diecast Tri-ang trucks.

Some building pix. to follow, no doubt.

No layout? You can't have all this equipment and not have anywhere to run it! That's un-natural! Or un-something...

That's like the dude who owns a restored 56' Chevy but keeps it in the garage. One day he goes out and tries to start it up. But because it never leaves the garage, it won't start. The moral is...don't have a restored 56' Chevy.

Get it?

The new ALL WELDED ! mooodern tankcar underframe, went together like a dream !

The DIY Plastruct construction jig has been added to the carshop stash for future builds.


No rivets on this car build, so I guess Michael won't be Posting much about it ! ;)


I don't have any specific 'plans' for this car, but do have a load of general tankcar drawings to refer to.

Next up, has been a bit more Plastruct 'welding' to support the main tank.




Slightly strange photo ! :shocked:

I often assemble my underframes & other stuff, on this old mirror.

Simply because it is flat, MEK or PVA doesn't stick to it, & I can put it to one side, somewhere warm to dry, off the work bench.

Yep ! ... Some Christmas lights in the background & the trusty green 'coffee kettle'.

Top quality steamers those colour match jugs from Argos ! ;)

Due to Christmas holiday 'pressure' on work bench space...

...Wolfgang seems to have 'craned' the new tankcar build, onto the roof of an adobe building ! :shocked:



Bottom-left, is the newly made M.M.M 1-35n2 'coupler height gauge', for the San Juan 'Evolution' knuckles.
