Ive finally got all the benchwork in place and all the track laid. The latest post on my blog shows the progress.
I recently purchased the following products from walthers through a hobby shop in south africa
Glacier gravel co. 933-3062
Valley cement plant. 933-3098
I wish to know what era these buildings where built in as I wish to purchase shops and houses in the same period to make the scenery and future buildings people and vehicles
More realistic to that time period
I have looked up these items on the walthers website and the do not state a specific time period can any body help me in this matter
It was recently suggested that I break down my blog entries by topic or location to make them easier to find, since my original blog on the Iowa Interstate's West End at http://model-railroad-hobbyist.com/node/9031 is getting a bit large and cumbersome. This post marks the beginning of my move in that direction.
Having trouble laying out that gi-normous outside curve on the new layout? Do what the prototype civil engineers did. Use degree of curvature instead of radius. You don’t need the center point of the arc.
The second part of this project was an Atlas AEM-7 factory painted for Septa that needed to have details added/corrected. I was also simultaneously working on my own NJ Transit ALP44 correcting some of the detail discrepancies.
Over the past couple of months I've been working on and off on a few detailing projects for myself and a friend of mine. First up is a Walthers Horizon cab car factory painted for Septa that I detailed for my friend.
My continuing blog about building a small switching layout in a condo/loft space, this entry I begin with the production/construction process of my Ontario South Central Railroad. Previous entries including great help and responses from other MRH readers can be found here:

I have just purchased a used N scale Kato Mikado but the box is missing the parts sheet. I am about to install a decoder and would like to see the exploded view. It appears that Kato does not put them on line. If anyone could provide me with a copy, I would be grateful.
Thanks C P Doug
