C&S Landscape Shots

Really great photo's on Check out the now and then section - C&S Landscape Shots.

Thanks Cameron

New Kit - looks like fun

Just picked up - O'Douls Flop House - from Bar Mills. Looks pretty cool. Will build it more "new looking" since modeling 1907.

Two brass C&S passenger cars - if anyone interested

Don't like evil bay and wanted to give you cobbers first crack.  Have 2 brass C&S passenger cars:
1. Overland coach 70-73 - top condition paid 200 - make an offer
2. Soho coach 70 - good condition paid 120 - a little tarnish - make an offer

Neither are painted and I don't see any broken parts, in original boxes.  Let me know if interested.

2016 Plans

Thought it might be fun to share my goals for 2016.

The layout has not seen much progress as we spent several months working on the house, including new flooring and adding a Florida room (mostly done, some cosmetic work still to be done).

The biggest accomplishment was completing the Gilpin engine house and preparing 2 articles for the HON3 Annual.  Also completed hours for my NMRA Volunteer AP.

This year will be hopefully spent on Super detailing the engine house and building a coaling dock for Pitkin.  Based on plans form The Western Structures book.

Also plan to begin a module.  With retirement approaching I want to begin building these modules as movable sections that we can relocate easily.  Some ideas are: a Pitkin module, others include North Black Hawk (using the engine house) or the Alpine tunnel.

Now just hoping these can be begun with something to show for it by the end of the year.  Will post pictures as we proceed.

Thanks Cameron
