Shelf layout beginnings

I finished revamping the room, making it into a home office with the intentions of one wall being a shelf layout. A lot of holes patched and all the walls repainted and I am ready to proceed. I decided to go with track shelving for several reasons, mainly for the versatility of shelf heights as …

And then there was nothing

A little progress this week/weekend, the train room is officially empty. Every car is back in their original cases and organized in tubs. It was good to go thru this process, it really made me clean house and dump a bunch of junk. It was also cool as I found a bunch of surprises I …

Getting excited again

Unfortunately no one makes an actual SD60MAC in N scale. Atlas does an SD60M three window cab that should be close enough for the N scale eye. The biggest differences …

BN C30-7 whiteface

In my quest to find C30-7s a while back I came across this guy. Everything looked great except the front logo looked off, it seemed too small. So this morning I removed it and placed a bigger one on. I think it looks much better now.
