I appreciate your emails and all the information.
Over the past 35 years I have built almost 100 of these Buildings & accessories…..about 60 in this 4 x 8 layout.
Someday I hope to do a more detailed layout.
This is a small trash bin project for O scale layouts.
The first thing you need to find are the plunger caps from insulin syringes. I am insulin dependent and have an ample supply of them, too bad I am in HO scale.
Once you have the caps, paint them whatever color you want your trash bins to be.
Stuff some paper into the finished bins and top that off with scraps of stuff left over from your projects.
Put a drop or two of diluted white glue on the trash to hold it in place.
“All some very simple images.
The partial American flag image was from the American Flag Company that was destroyed when a pipe burst right over the layout.
I scratch built the depot station building as well as the loading dock. The cars and barrels have been rusted out.
“Hi Al … just wanted to add some further comments on my Dog-bone layout … it was constructed of 2 x 4 wood framing with 3/8″ plywood table top surface …
the entire surface was covered with 3/16 ‘ cork (roadbed material) and painted green …
all Gargraves track was used with 054 and 042 curves … all switches are 042 …
the layout not highly detailed but meant to give the visual illusion of detail …
refined detailing can be added but right now I am just into running the trains …
the most complete layout I have ever had and still a work in progress …
will further advise on this layout and follow up on a layout I started a few years ago but had to temporarily abandon to finish off some attic space …

I’m uploading a new video, duo of U 26 C Union Pacific from your little friend.
I hope you like it and share it.
A big thanks to John, Dennis, George, Bob and Cassio.
That’s all for today folks, please do keep em coming.
Don’t forget the Beginner’s Guide is here if you wan to get going on your very own layout.
