After some painting and weathering.










I used rattle can Ace Hardware orange (what I call traction orange).

Some acrylics for weathering.


A day later the finished product.  Good enough for a background model.

This will probably get parked behind Si's Engineering (under construction).

With distractions from other projects getting in the way,
I've slowly been making some progress on San Miguel. 

I would like to get the yard mostly done,
before I start on the westward expansion to Sundance.

This has been a long time in coming,
but I've been working on Si's Engineering. 

A modest wood structure with its own siding.





I haven't laid the rails yet until I get an exact location of the building. 
The spur will be code 80 compared to code 100 most everywhere else.





A sign will go over the main door on the right. 
There will also be a loading dock, and some simple lighting will get installed.

Of course lots of junk and parts will be strewn all over.

Hi Michael  :mex:


There's just one thing that I don't like about  ' Si's Engineering ' ...  :f:





... That it's not here on my bench ...

... So I can lay a track next to it & put some of my trains on it !  ;)


:java: :bg:


Si.

I think that part of the fun in modeling is naming buildings, places, or things
after people you know or places you like, without getting too whimsical or silly.


I've got the Bloated Goat from the original in Mogollon, New Mexico. 
There's Woodie's Cantina after Woodie Greene.
MJ Mining Company after my son.
Morrison Borax after Marion Morrison (aka John Wayne).
Washington Street after General and President George Washington.
And Eastwood Ravine from Back To The Future III.


Sometimes you can use history as a beginning point for a name. 
Virginia City, Nevada got its name from:

"When a miner named James Finney,
who was more often called “Old Virginny” from his birthplace,
dropped a bottle of whiskey on the ground,
he christened the newly founded tent-and-dugout town,
“Old Virginny Town” in honor of himself.

It was later changed to Virginia City.
By 1862, the population had soared to some 4,000,
and would continue to increase over the next decade and a half."       


I have a grave marker for Joe "Hooch" Simpson,
who was hung in Skidoo in 1908. 

I always liked that story on how Hooch was hung, buried,
dug up and re-hung, so that a reporter could take a picture.


Enough rambling for now.

Log car 567 pressed into general service,

to haul some repaired machinery from Si's Engineering,

back to one of the mines.

Trying for some night time shots. 

Need to work on my technique.

Number 8 getting ready to depart San Miguel with a boxcar of less-than-carload and mail.










Stopping at Manly Siding to drop off some freight and what little mail there may be for the mines.
Here #8 will run around its' train and head back to San Miguel after stopping off at Whiskey Flats.





After dropping off the boxcar on the main at Whiskey Junction,
#8 shoves the mail car to Whiskey Flats where express and mail will be unloaded.





Back in San Miguel the train pauses at the transfer dock.





#8 pulls its' train into the yard, runs around the cars, and waits for its' next assignment.

Well, I'm working on a backdrop and trying to make the road curve to the right.

I'm kind of getting there.  Need to add another coat of paint to the road.

Beats having the road drop off to nowhere.


Michelangelo I'm not.
