Hi Joe  :wave:



Great to see you here at Freerails & your pics. of those wonderful models !  :thumb:



Now who was it ? that was saying to me, you need loads of space ...  L:

... for modeling those great BIG narrow gauge locos, the D.& R.G.W. ran !  ;)





Your 1:160 sack-barrows look like a challenge  :shocked:  ... Nice Mexican hats as well !  :mex:





As a former N-scale structure modeler, way back when ... I gotta say, luv the 'rot & rust'.  :P



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



Si.

Thanks!

There is an article about the K-37,
that will be in the January 2020 issue of N Scale Magazine,
all the details are there.

I have a video of it on YouTube, if you’d like to see it:

https://youtu.be/Ct9Qt8Hig8U


The Pinos Altos layout will be a bit smaller, and I’m building it as a shadow box.
The box is finished, the Shay #2 is almost there.

I’m very much anti 3D-printing, but I am having the arch at trucks 3D-printed,
as casting them in resin was going to be difficult,
and building them as multiple pieces is possible, but doesn’t lend to durability.

For the train, I’m building the corrugated boxcar they had,
to my own design, the caboose, and 4 ore cars.

Hey Joe, if you are interested in all things SCPA&M,
be aware that the author of the ONLY book about the RR hangs out here on Freerails.

Duane Ericson dug up all the photos and material he could find for the book...
if there's an expert, he certainly is and his modeling is most excellent to boot.

And since the SC's first Shays were from the Gilpin Tram,
Keith Pashina, also here, is the expert on that line also.

It is an honor to be friends with them.

Woodie

Joe,

It goes without saying that this is remarkable.

Never thought I'd see woodgrain detailing in N scale!
And the engine, wow.

Your weathering and run down buildings are beautiful.
Love your ship models also.

I can't wait to see when you model the entire state D&RGW system,
in a full size basement.

Just think about it, seriously.

And for that I officially certify you crazy and nuts. 

:doh:

Kevin
