Super Elevating Track

Evan Cihlar ·
Hello everyone, Lots of people have asked me how I super elevated my track for my model railroad, so here is how I did it: Laid track and talked it down 50% of the way lifted track up slightly put toothpicks underneath the ties (the further in they are, the higher the elevation, and vise versa) pushed the track down over the toothpick nailed the track in 100% of the way balasted the track This is an awesome and cheap way to add some special effects to your trackwork!

A friend tried to get me interested in skiing. "No way," I told him, "After all it's a slippery slope!" * groan *

Hi Ann - Welcome to the OGR Forum, very cool layout. Like all your snow scenes. No Ski Resort on my layout, just a guy fishing. Skiing is popular in Michigan, this ski resort is about five miles from my train room. http://www.skialpinevalley.com/ Check it out.

MTH passenger cars - place people inside

paul4653 ·
I want to place people sitting inside the " railking" passenger cars. Will the brand MTH sitting passenger people ... fit properly for the passenger cars? Or are there other brands of sitting people I need to purchase? Any suggestions? Much appreciated.

ISO: People Skiing and other Ski Resort type people for S-Scale train layout

Ann ·
I have the Bachmann On30 Scale North Pole & Southern train running on a Christmas/Winter layout with Heartland Valley Village and Lemax buildings. On my layout I have a ski resort with a downhill ski slope. I am in search of appropriate size skiers and other winter type people for this area of my layout. The only people I have been able to find are the 2 Model Power Winter packs (6051 & 5712) and the Arttista man and woman skiing (1396 & 1397). Does anyone know of any other...

Re: Union Pacific Pullman Sleeper Interior Upgrade, K-Line Passenger Car 1305, K4690

Hancock52 ·
First of all, I am amazed at your commitment to prototypical accuracy and at the speed with which you are getting through a whole series of cars. Excellent job all around. Second, I have been there - I don't mean doing a 3rail sleeping car but starting over when the result of detailing an interior is not what you want. FWIW, my theory is that 3rail passenger cars, even the 21" versions, are really only a representation of the real thing, not a true scale model, so everything we do with them...

Thanks Hancock, I have 6 passenger cars in this K-Line set. In the beginning I only planned on posting the RPO car. But after all the positive comments from this O-Gauge forum on the RPO car it gave me the encouragement to post the rest of the cars on the forum. I have been an unregistered guest on this forum for over 2-years but only joined last month because I wanted to give back to the O-gauge community. I have seen posts from beginners like me to 1/48 scale master builders in this forum.

Does anyone else have an O Gauge baseball team my guys can play a game with? Better hurry up and show me before we all disappear into the cornfield. Shoeless Joe

Here we have some real hard working little guys: I'm particularly pleased about the background. Beyond the track is my feeble attempt at making a water stream, consisting of mere light blue paper. However, in this picture the fluorescent light above is reflected on that light blue paper giving it a hint of rapids (with a little imagination).

Back to baseball: Notice the fans are sitting in the left field stands at Yankee Stadium (again with a little imagination). The yellow left field foul pole involved very advanced modeling: a soda straw painted yellow with acrylic paint and glued in place using a dab of Elmers Glue. Those are the correct dimensions of Yankee stadium down the left field line (301 feet) and straight away left field (402 feet) when Don Larsen pitched a perfect game in the World Series in 1956. I was 5 years old...

Yes, little people do add life to a layout. Good point, one I ascribe to enthusiastically. When they are present, it makes a statement. When they are absent, a statement is made as well. FrankM

Sometimes a scene with not to many LPs tell a story. Here it is Saturday morning, most are sleeping in late, a few people driving on a humid summer morning to work, pick up supplies, or just a morning drive in their convertibles. The corner Ice Cream shop is open and already has a customer who is enjoying the morning and watching the cars go by. At the Sinclair Gas Station, full service, Joe Oaks is filling the tank of my dads new 56 Ford. Joe has an antique he's been working on for months,...

Yes. There may need to be some surgery to feet and legs to get them to fit at the tables and such, but you would need to do that on any brand. Gene Anstine

Re: MTH passenger cars - place people inside

gunrunnerjohn ·
I've tried multiple brands, and most require a litt'e "surgery" to fit, and it's highly dependent on the exact car configuration. FWIW, the RailKing painted figures are among the more expensive figures, the Golden Gate Little People are around half the price per passenger. The Lionel 21" passenger car figures are in the middle between the RailKing and the GG Little People in price. I tend to use the cheap Chinese figures where they're not as visible and reserve the more expensive figures for...

I'm in Michigan and it's 70°. Which means in three hours I could have a foot of snow outside.... but I see your point The site or google has had "composer madness" the last date or so. I don't think I've typed a whole sentence for two days where the "smart composer" didn't change what was typed; sometimes more than once on the same word, but waiting till I'm a paragraph away of course. I used to think phones were teen toys for those who didn't know any better. But I caved to peer pressure...

I was thinking to ask the same thing. Not just the western riders, but all of Frank's figures are interesting and often appear unique. My guess is that Frank has a very good eye for finding his little people at train shows.
