Re: interchange between standard gauge and narrow gauge

 

Bill,

If your friend models in HO, Rio Grande Models makes a HO kit for this car. It is their kit #3026. Here is their picture of it:

Kit is $25.
Here is a prototype photo of two of the cars:

Hope this helps.

Subject: [HOn3] interchange between standard gauge and narrow gauge

A gentleman on another list is looking for info on a standard gauge car
used, I believe on the D&RGW to move narrow gauge cars on the dual gauge
portions of the system. Are there photos or drawings available that I
could pass on to him?

Thanks

Re: drywal

FWIW 
Use a 4"knife in your corners to tape and a 6" on the bed seams.....let dry completly (condtions dictate) do not try to build on your tape coat........Then 6" knife on corners and start building your bed seams......less is more as thinner coats dry faster and keep you from disturbing what is down.......bed seams should be about 12" wide when your read to sand....screw/nail holes two coats scrap flat between coats and the tie all together in rows with a thin wipe again less is more....

There are four levels to dry wall mud for average results......level five work the whole area is rolled with thinned mud and then sanded lightly but it is an art at that point.....

the rock work looks good btw....if you have any large gaps ceiling to wall wall to wall etc fill with glue liquid nail caulk gun let dry before you tape......filling gaps like that with mud can cause things not to dry and make job more frustrating....

Hope this helps....

Very nice work.

I do think the windows are a little oversize for HOn3.  🤔

I am finishing up the scenery on the McKelvey Brothers logging operation in southern Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania.  McKelvey was the only narrow gauge railroad to connect with the East Broad Top (at Rockhill Furnace) in the 1920's.  This site is well logged over.  I got a lot of ideas from the logging modules at the Sacramento convention.  The Shay is an MDC model redone by David Hoffman.  I still have to ballast the tracks, but otherwise I am pleased with the result so far.

Really nice scenery, Jeff.  You got the "middle of nowhere" effect just right.  At first glance I thought I was looking at a  photo of the real thing ... until I saw the window in the background.  Great job!

For anyone attending the FEBT Fall Reunion at the Bricktown Model Railroader's club in Mount Union, PA this weekend (November 8, 9, 10) I will be there Saturday the 9th and giving a presentation on my business and plans for it after the dinner at 7pm. I look forward to seeing you all there and discussing this kit, and plans for future kits, there. This kit, when completed will be the centerpiece of your layouts! Unfortunately I will not have a completed model to show for another 2-3 weeks but as soon as I do I will post picture on my website; www.broadtopmountainmodels.com. Thank you all for your interest and thank you for the shoutout Bruce!

Great photos, Russ!

Here are a couple of shots of the prototype.  The aerial view (courtesy of Lance Myers) is the best overall shot.  The kit would incorporate, as I understand it, all the buildings in the center of the photo -- the car shop, the locomotive and machine shop and the boiler and power plant.

Geez that's a big floor plan. I don't think I could squeeze that model on to my layout design without running the mainline through the middle bay of the car shop. Would that look weird? =)

So the group is aware, I have placed a pre-order.  These guys make great kits and I have to believe this one will add to their reputation.  Can't wait for my "Xmas"  present!  Now I just have to let my bride know I am good to go for the holidays.

PS - I am reading Kyper's newest book.  One picture (copy attached) of the south wall of the car shop shows rails running up to the small door between the west and middle doors.  Does anyone know what gauge the rails were and how far south away from the car shop they ran?  Reviewing the car shop floor plan (copy also attached) they appear narrower than 3'.  Maybe 24"??

Thanks.

HD or Lowes rent drywall lifts for about $37 a day. Or you can buy one on amazon for $130 and resell it.....

Hi Ric,

No pictures yet; I'm expecting pictures of the assembled model in 3-4 weeks. I can tell you that it will have a floor, wall framing, and roof rafters. I can send a picture, or pictures, as soon as I get them.
