Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

All modules are required to have a track diagram on them, showing the locations of industries: https://farm6.staticflickr.com/5610/15163507824_7d0104a8b1_b.jpg Quisling Depot by bxmoore , on Flickr Finally, two videos from the November meet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBhh1U40pv4 https://www.yo...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Here's a view of the complete module, with Pete Saunders' Rocklin module next to it, followed by Western Union's Lipson Junction crossing module. The Quisling Citrus Association's packing house still requires a decent roof, and the Quisling Propane track is in front: https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

Quisling visited the Western Union's November meet with much more scenery on it and a few changes, looked OK and performed reliably. The modified cardboard Auhagen model at left (made more "3D", and with added styrene roofs, a loading dock and awnings) looks good, and the Kingmill flats (again with ...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

I slapped on a base coat of Vallejo Brown Earth paste, which comes in a biggish pot, and is a grainy, red-brown colour. I've had a few jars of various sands and stuff lying around for years, so just dipped into them freely - a little goes a long way. Kids' sandpit sand is the best to use, but mine h...

Coast Daylight, October 1954

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QCa3uQc7riY I picked up the final articulated pair of cars yesterday, and am a happy bunny with my pleasingly accurate 14-car off-peak Coast Daylight. Here's a test run on my home layout. I've already been informed that the second-last car should be running the other ...

Re: Quisling: constructing 16 feet of modular railroad

I finally brought my 16' of modular HO to the monthly club meet at the weekend, and am happy to report that it all went very well. To clarify once more: four 47x20" rectangles of pink foam, wrapped in ply with integral legs, a low backscene on one side to facilitate picture-taking, and using Conrad ...

Thanks to Mel, Martyn, Neil et al for the great day in Exeter last Saturday, 6th September.

Re: Share your videos

OK, I'll bite.

Here's a video I made a couple of years ago on my home layout, of a locomotive switching some cars, hopefully reasonably accurately. The engine is a repainted and detailed Atlas RS11, into which I installed a Tsunami decoder.

Re: Weathering another boxcar

I agree with Martyn. Always paint (best to spray) the trucks, wheels and underside bits and bobs with a basic "grime" colour, ad then add powders on top if wished.

Personally, I wouldn't use it because of the American spelling of the word "colour".

Re: Help needed - Branchline figures

A quick Google search seems to indicate that they also made figures for military modelling; a chatroom thread I found suggested that they had gone out of business at least a few years ago, and that a particular dealer was selling the last of their military stock in 2013 at cut-price. Another chatroo...
