Just curious, that's all. I purchased the Walthers pack of 12 for approx $11.00 US ($14.00 AU), whereas the Peco ones are a tad more expensive at $4.60 (AU) for two....

Cheers, Gary.

Hi Ron,
looks very neat. Maybe some diagonal bracing on the end section would just give it that extra rigidity.
neat work as always.:thumbs:
cheers toto

The diagonal brace is not necessarily needed. If the top bolts where it fits the baseboard are quite rigid and there are two screws on each leg of the lower cross piece of timber, there will be very little movement. :thumbup:

Cheers, Gary.

There are 2 screws on each leg of the cross brace and the top bolts can be done up tightly, I've planned to do the same the other end and a trestle type support for the middle joint area. :)
Did some more graffiti on a couple of boxcars as well! 




Top one is a transfer but I drew the lower one with white and silver pens!
Cheers
Ron

Soon you'll be down the local railway museum graffiti-ing their rolling stock ! :mutley2::mutley2:

Looks great Ron, nice work. You must slowly be collecting some US rolling stock now...

Cheers, Gary.

That is a nice idea. Plenty of Short Haul branch line railroads ran through forested areas as such, just google/youtube short haul railroads ! Another idea is shipping containers stacked up three or four high... Downloadable shipping containers are available quite cheaply too..

Maybe even Peter (PC163) can supply you with some of his own... :scratchchin:

That's a handy container site Gary thanks, have just put some existing tree's around the exit to get an idea of what it could be like..
