Scratchbuilt Gantry Crane/Yard Lights

As Joe F has been saying their aren't enough scratch build articles, so I figured I would document my last little project. 

I have been slowly developing a little diorama on one of my sidings using Walthers Central Gas & Supply. One of the things that I wanted to add was some working yard lights.  Having perused what was available on the interweb, I could find nothing suitable and decided to make something myself.

N&W Pokey District, Sub 1 3/4 New Update

It's been a long time since I posted an update on the construction of my HO layout, so I thought it was time to let my fellow MRH readers know what's been happening lately on the N&W Pokey District, Sub 1 3/4!

Update on BNML Layout Progress - Golden Spike!

Tonight, April 19, 2014, at 8:34pm, the Golden Spike was laid on the BNML. The last spike was appropriately located at the junction of all 3 railroads; the CP, CN/BNML, and the BNSF, at Noyes MN.

Ok, actually there are no spikes on my layout. Golden caulking? Maybe not.

Anyway... Progress has been made!

Photo shows the last section to be laid.

The tree-eating Lynn Valley

It's been a busy week of twisting and gooping armatures. But I now have about 50 trees in place in the Lynn Valley area of my layout. And at a guess, I'm only half done.

But, it's looking better all the time...

More on my blog: Enjoy if you visit!

Pembroke II: Mutant Bullfrogs

I decided to use Fast Tracks Bullfrog Manual Turnout Controls for controlling the turnouts on Pembroke. I tested these out at a show a couple of years ago, and liked the positive clunk compared to some other systems. I also liked the price (you're getting to know me by now), and finally I like the fact that they're wood.
