Improving Plasticville

Richard E ·
These are Plasticville Store fronts that I scratch built 2 story additions. They will mate up with Ameritown sides. The one on the left ia a Plasticville 5 & 10, The other is the Pharmacy/Hardware. The upper floors were built with Evergreen styrene, the upper windows were printed on overhead projector film and the signs were printed on photo paper. They were inspired by buildings that were one time in Rochester.

A "Grander" Central Station

Mike Wyatt ·
I kit-bashed two Plasticville Union Stations into one long one, cut the result lengthwise, and mounted the Plasticville section to the back of a Lionel Grand Central Station - notably plain, and (dare I say) ugly. The Plasticville building(s) are mounted to a painted styrene piece that covers the back of the Lionel Station, and the styrene is attached using doublefaced tape. So the "collectible" is not ruined. Then, I glued a printed station interior to the styrene background, and lit the...

Plasticville “O” & “S” Scale “An illustrated price guide” 1981 $30

Waverly 5 Yard ·
This is a Softcover book that is in exceptionally good condition for its age. I used this as a reference guide for many years until all of my Plasticville was destroyed in a basement flood. No use for it now. Thankfully this book wasn’t down there too. Since I did use it, there are pages with the description highlighted and checked off. Can’t change that, so the price reflects that. These are normally not seen for sale very often. I was at a recent, large show and only saw 1 for sale and...

Show us your Homemade or Kit-bashed Layout Buildings you have Made or Modified

Choo Choo Charlie ·
Post a write up and pictures of Homemade or Kit-bashed Layout Buildings you have made or modified or scratch built. I will start with one of my first kit-bashed Plasticville buildings , the Bachmann Coal Station, number 1975. The project was to make a raised roof, (which had a conveyor to spread coal), on the the Coal Station to replace the 1975 flat roof. I always liked the looks of that style coal station. I used 1/8 inch tempered Masonite with one smooth side. The smooth sides were scored...

Plasticville/Bachmann O coaling tower help

dobermann ·
Today the Amazon truck delivered my coaling tower. It was plastic wrapped so I assumed it was new. I put a coat of primer on some of the parts then started cutting off the tops to install the topper from Mount Blue Models. If you've cut the tops off this stuff by hand you know what a pain is is. Anyway after a couple of attempts to put it together I find I have 2 identical sides. If you bashed one of these and have a leftover side marked A/B I'll be glad to buy it off you. thanks

Yay Switcher Saturday! Here is a New Haven MTH RS3 Roadswitcher shell riding on a Lionel Mechanisim and a Williams B&O NW2 weaving through some columns that weren't there a minute ago. Sometimes Combining hobbies is fun, other times it leads to some Devastating results. Just an added bit of fun this week. I'm sure it is hard to switch let alone stay on the rails when the ground is shaking.

SWSAT Time!!! (Disclaimer: For the foreseeable future, you're just going to have to use your imagination to view my model pics... on account of there ain't no scenery and the recently acquired new engines still lack weathering!) Scale: HO "The Q's NW2 #9245 sits in the West Bottoms waiting for a signal to clear before trundling off into the West Bottoms to do some switching."

I use to walk the RR tracks to grade school. The little 0-6-0 would be shuffling cars to the various coal yards so I guess I have a soft spot in my heart for them. Nice pic's yes even the diesels.

Nice pics everybody! Rusty: You know how I feel about your new Mop RS-11's!! All: Need to clarify something I typed. I typed this: "I have just ordered an Atlas HO scale ALCo HH660 (looks almost identical to the above) to become my Kansas City & Gulf's first ever diesel..." Reading that, it reads as if my Atlas engine I ordered will look like the KCT unit pictured. Not exactly. I ordered an UNDECORATED unit. What I meant was: There are minor differences between an HH1000 and an HH660.

Badly beaten then cleaned to within an inch of its life. Some previous owner removed the fuel tank/battery cover and horn from this poor thing. Typically, it needed only minor maintenance to get it running like new again. Bruce

Made some progress at the workbench! Thought I'd share it and in the process add some more pics to SWSAT! What I did: Took the bone-stock BLI HO scale in the "as delivered" KCS NW2 #1222 and brought it up to the early 60s by adding the missing shield heralds on the cab sides, the white striping on the foot board edges, and extending the side sill white stripe to the inside of the step wells. Still to go: Paint most of the handrails white, but that will wait until after I've masked off the...

Richard, would you consider making those for sale? I'd sure like two of the Woolworth uppers and one of the Scranton uppers. Those would certainly make my PV kit bashes look better. Thank for letting us look at them. You really polished up the plain PV buildings. Tom
