Hey everyone, nice work as usual!  Here's my little contribution this weekend:

Branch line station structure coming along. Ready to shingle.

In the spare time waiting for glue to dry on the structure, I used some scrap polystyrene to build some battery wells and flange greasers (with Lionel example at right) to add some ROW details on the layout.

TW TrainWorx.......just click on the rotating ad they have above......it's call the Cameron Freight Transfer Co.......it is an absolute blast to build!

Before you build, watch their You Tube video on building their Rock Island Frieght House kit.....it's done by Mike Reagan and is a valuable resource on how to build the kit.....

Really nice! You did a great job!

I didn't even know that Trainworx sold building kits. I thought they just built custom layouts. Wow, they have nice stuff. Their industrial background buildings fit my need. They cost a few dollars ... but so nicely done.

So, these are made out of MDF? Not, plastic? And, they go together pretty well? I'm not a super experienced model builder.

You're lucky to always have such an enthusiastic helper around.

Thanks, Jim

What did you use to cap the top of the silos?

Ricky

Hello Ricky. I used 6mm MDF but 0.25” hard board works too. I am an old draftsman and laid out what I wanted with my CAD program. Then I plotted the file full size and used as a template. A decent compass and some straight edges will work too. I made the outside around 6mm proud of the silo walls.

You can cut with a jig saw or a band saw. Sand smooth. Just take your time and it will come out great. Hope that helps.

Donald
