" I can now get back to building a two stall engine house for the K&S " 

" Laying out window opening's on the side walls, windows on order.

Lucky I had 3 windows on hand for layout and fitting "


Hi    Ken  :wave:


Thanks for sending me your 'K&S' plan book PDF.  :)


The engine house was one of my favourite drawings.  :thumb:

Just how the doors should look on a future M.M.M.M.M.& M.Co. one !


All the cribbing, culvert & trestle drawings were cool to see as well.  :cool:

I hope you don't run out of coffee-stirrers !  :java: :java: :java: :java: :java:


:moose: :dt:

Managed to build a couple of the culverts shown in the plans.  :2t:


Not likely to run out of stir sticks any time soon 4000-5000 on hand,  

plus skewers to model cribbing as shown in the plan book.

:us:

If I build the engine house, need to stock up on Evergreen drop siding,

I know I do not have enough on hand.


Still short a few windows,

for the engine house I am currently working on,  :bang:

more then enough on hand to finish the visible sides.  :2t:

Hi    Ken  :wave:


Sounds like you could open a coffee bar !  :java: ;)


The culvert building, I'm sure will look great on the layout ...

... a sometimes under-modelled feature.  :us:

Downside of modelling the culverts,

you can make 3 or 4 in an evening,

then the hard part is figuring out where to use them.

:bang: :bang: :bang:

Need to sort out water drainage to plan installation.

Engine house on hold waiting for parts (hinges),

will Post a few photos soon of the build.


I need to make up 3 sets of doors, 2 for the engine house,

with the third for the shop addition, if I add it.

:us:

No good photos of the engine house have shown up,

so I will make the best of the shop addition.


It was built of rough lumber,

versus the drop siding used on the engine house.

Mind you I do have a few stir sticks to use up. :moose:

Hi    Ken  :wave:

After you've opened the NEW  'Kens Coffee Caf.' ...  :java::old dude:

... you'll still have enough stir-siding, for the entire 'K.& S.Rly.' !  :shocked:


Probably do 250,000  1/4 Mil. shingles EASY ...  :mex:

... could start a 'run' on Chopper S.S.R.B.s in Canada !


The blackmarket price would ROCKET ! ...

... with beards the latest Canadian fashion this summer !!  ;)


:java::moose: :dt:


Si.

I'm still making my way to doomsday I see ...  :mex::moose: :moose:

... with mules & sweaty-DYNAMITE cases, on your scenery !

Si.


Been going through my collection of trestle plans,

which would use up a bunch of the stir sticks.


Or do I build a steel trestle,

and use up my Central Valley stockpile ?


It would mean removing a bench section,

and building a new one, to give the trestle some depth.

:bang:  :bang:  :bang: 

Have a couple of plans for logging railway trestles,

either too long or too high. L:


The section would be between Norquinco bridge,

and the current yard under construction.


Hopefully I will complete a running loop,

within the month.

:us:
