“What a beautiful photo of that stretch of abandoned railway included with your Wonderful scenery pics email..
Though not as beautiful as the photo you displayed, I found quite an unusual line of track fairly close to my home on Long Island. It was abandoned some years back however it was recently cleared and now serves as a path for freight service.
I love to sign on and find your wonderful emails.
No words from Bill, but he sent these in:
“Hi, I have an good tip; if you want to fill up your/a wagon with coal and you don’t want to use loads of it, you can fill your wagon up ¾ of the way with cardboard, then you can mix some coal with PVA glue until it makes a paste and the glue goes greyish, then you just put it on until you can’t see any cardboard and then leave it to dry. Once it has dried it will look realistic.
Here are some photos of my layout showing the progress so far.
Track has been ballasted, scenery still to build, wiring still in progress.
“Hi Al , love the tips keep em’ coming.
New to modeling and need all the help I can get. Just thought I would throw you some pics of my layout so far. All of the road bed is cork that was in a big roll my father gave me. Couldn’t see paying them high prices for roadbed cork from the store so I hand cut and fit each piece. I read and save all the great tips that I’m getting from you . Will email some more pics as progress continues.
And this in from Dave:
“Hi Al , just uploaded this video on youtube showing a new mini camera in a cam truck I have just bought , well pleased with the results …
Please do keep ’em coming. Enjoying the scenery pics – just beautiful.
