BLAST FURNACE, WALTHERS CORNERSTONE PROF. BUILT MODEL, HO SCALE / NICE O SCALE BACKGROUND INDUSTRY

Sam ·
No longer in production here is a Walthers Cornerstone series Blast furnace. A spectacular, professionally built model. NOTE: this is an HO scale model. I think it would fit well into an O scale scene as part of an industrial area. This was removed from a scale model rr that was dismantled. As such there are a few blemishes that are minor. The main structure on the right is lighted. YORK DELIVERY OR LOCAL PICKUP IN THE BALTIMORE- DC- No. VA AREA. To fragile to attempt shipping by a carrier.

First Korber Models Kit Build

TrainWizard5972 ·
While at York I bought a #707 O Scale Background Grocery Building Kit from Korber Models. I am happy to report that I have finished building the kit. This was my first Korber Kit but not my first kit building experience. While I could of used the included sign for the Wilson Grocery Company I made the kit my own by creating the Laurel & Hardy Manufacturing Company. A homage to my previous layout, the Lake Laurel & Hardyville, and to my love of the classic comedy duo. I added on a...

Final touches on Erie Built

Steven Michael ·
Just a quick update, I cut the mounts of the air hose that came with the original boxing glove and glued it to the side of the draft gear box, also cut off the coupler's magnetic trip pin. I may also apply some of the "primer" that comes with Super Glue's "Plastics Bonding Kit" to the end of the air hose so I can paint it silver. I will also apologize for not having a picture of it. : /

Fixed Pilot and Scale Coupler installed on FM Erie Built

Steven Michael ·
I just finished installing a scale coupler and fix pilot on my Atlas O Erie Built. Yesterday I put on the included pilot as it came with the cover over the coupler hole, but I realized it stuck out way too far, and we run them in freight service so it shouldn't be on there anyway. Today my dad ran up to the hobby store and got a pack of Kadees to put on it. I removed the screw that holds the cover onto the pilot. I then built up the mounting pad with three sheets of styrene, not sure how...

It'd be great for Lionel to use these toolings once again

Peter Araujo ·
1992 Mikado tooling: I think they should use a 2-Axle tender truck on this one like when it was originally used.  Also they should add the handrails on the front like this: Maybe even a whistle recording of Southern 4501, along with the same chuff sound as the LEGACY Built to Order 4-6-0.  They should also make the drivers lighter like before. 1. Southern Railway 4501 (black) 2. Southern Railway 4501 (green) 3. Maybe even some other roadnames, but remove the handrails...

layout buildings tour

Stu Gralnik ·
Over the last 16 years of model building I have had the honor to do the majority of buildings on some great layouts.   Here is a layout that features models based on actual buildings from the 50'.  to do this I pick the major architectural details from photos, then design the building to fit the layout.  All postcards are from the collection of Stu Gralnik.  All final scenery was done by the client.

Looks much better. Go a step further by cutting the trip pin off and add a nice air hose with glad hand to the pilot.

That's the plan! Where is the best place could I order one? I was just going to look at the exploded parts diagram of my new ES44s and order one from Lionel, but I am sure there are better ones out there.

I usually grab one from my parts bin. When I convert cars to Kadees I save all those air hoses. I like the MTH air hoses because they are much thinner and have a nicer glad hand than the Atlas part. I also use PSC air hoses and glad hands with real rubber hose... but usually its the MTH air hose.

Thanks for the information. You have a part number for the MTH ones?

Awesome! Since my Erie-built was a cob job, I had to fab the Kadee shim for the rear of my unit, but luckily the donor had sent me the 2-rail pilot with the coupler cover door.

No I dont have an MTH part #. Whatever air hose they put on all the trucks for their 3 rail cars. It just pops off the truck, and then I cut the mount off.

Uh oh, looks like they did use the covers in freight service! Oh well, I still like the look of the knuckle better. I'll think about it...

Gene, Your buildings look great. All I would add would be some roof gravel or tar paper and some weathering. Feel free to send me an email from the link on my post and we can set up a time to talk on the phone. Stu

Hi Train Wizard and Rich at Korber Models, the sheet metal chute on the outside of the building, is that it extra part sold separately or is the sheet metal chute a custom part? What's the story? Thanks - Gary

Ditto on the roof! ALL? the walls are of foam, even those that look like "wood"? Is that modeled on an existing structure? Looks like a Tom Yorke effort...

Very nice! I love buildings with character and if only this one could talk, lol. Your idea of filling that spot with run down delapitated structures sounds more fun than a coaling station.

Thank You . The wood is coffee stir sticks. The walls are blue foam. I have room for three or four more buildings. I made the roof twice, because I didn't like the first one. The original is still underneath.

Thank You All. I built this building and not sure what I am going to do with it or call it. I have a small layout 12 x 12, space is limited. I have one large space left, and was going to do a coal mine. Now I may fill it with old run down structures.
