I'll just keep throwing down the odd images.

This one has a couple things that catch my eye.

Most interesting is the signage that juts out onto the street.

The railway has taken delivery of cut lumber for a static model.


More when the crew decides to bolt this crapbuilt model together.

I should be working. My company has the hugest deadline.
But I also need some relaxation time and a feeling of ease.

So about that yard crane in Alamosa...


A full sized version wouldn't fit on my imaginary railway,
but a smaller one to help move loads is still needed.

I didn't have all the lumber widths I needed,
so I laminated some pieces to get bigger beams.

I could have gone to the store and gotten more lumber,
but I had fun playing with using what I've got on hand.


These trestles are pretty sloppy.
If I make a bridge I will assemble with a plan and cut more accurately.
But for now I have something to mess around with.

Need to get creative in making my own detail parts next.
Lots of wheels and cables and a hook.

Just 1 tip,

paint (or stain) the wood first,

before you are gluing it.
