Jeff’s been in touch with a ‘how to’ on his HO scale river:
“Hi Al… thought I would pass this along.
Maybe it not a new idea, but thought I would try it.. I’m happy with it.
I poured white glue over to top of the falls so it ran down the way water might take the same path.
Then after it was almost dry, tacky, I combed out some cotton wool and placed it over the edge.
I used some clear glue on the top and bottom to keep the cotton wool in place. Once dry, I sprayed it with hair spray.
It’s a bit of a sticky job but turned out ok for me. Thought I would pass it along. You can post it if you think it might be helpful to others.
Rob also has some good model train water effects.
And now on to Ronald, who needs some help identifying a train set:
I received several sets of trains as a kid from my cousin before he went off to the Korean war.
Most of the trains were Lionel 027 gauge pre world war 2 that he enjoyed as a kid.
One set had three passenger cars without markings to who manufactured them.
They have couplers I have never seen before.
The trains have been stored away for the last 60 years.
I would appreciate if you or your readers could give any information on who made them, and any website that I could get parts.
“Hi Al …
I look forward to your e-mail every day and enjoy it very much.
See the attached … Do you think California high speed rail is off to a bad start ?
I don’t think I’ll see it in my lifetime !!!
San Jose, California”
Next, Wayne’s been back in touch with a few more pics of his progress.
If you missed his last post, it’s here.
A big thanks to Wayne, Ronald and to Jeff for his HO scale river pics.
That’s all for today folks.
Please do keep ’em coming – it’s getting a bit thin on the ground this end, so now’s a great time to send anything in.
And please don’t forget the the Beginner’s Guide is here if you want to make that start on your layout.
