My life is quite a jumble right now and no time allowed for fun or creativity. I’ve spent each late evening reviewing the OGR.  As I opened your post Alan I couldn’t help but wonder just how large Shell Oil might be.  

from a Google inquiry:
“We are a global group of energy and petrochemical companies with more than 90,000 employees in more than 70 countries. We use advanced technologies and take an innovative approach to help build a sustainable energy future.” ☺️

Thanks all for the help in making this 2006 dream come true!

Your work is amazing, I was looking at  as you suggested in another tread, and you nailed it.

Having some fun with interior detailing. Forgive my “quick and dirty” photos and video.

Locomotive Joe hanging lamps were used along with an Evan Designs fire LED for the pot belly stove. The roof and back wall are a single piece that can be lifted for staging the interior (photo 2.) The video shows the through the window effect I was going for.

Enjoy the rest of your weekends everyone!

Some Great looking work this week.

Alex, the interior looks great. Question on the Pot Belly stove. Most that I’ve seen a cast metal. Is this a 3D printed item ?  It really looks good.

Hi Dave,

That stove is actually part of Atlas O’s kits. Two come in their crossing shanty kit but I believe it’s used in a few others. The stove is made up of 3-4 plastic pieces and is easy to modify. Evan Designs Pico LEDs fit great.

Here’s a better photo of Atlas version:IMG_0693

Great Craftsmanship here, however, I’ve learned the hard way.

All the nice internal details will never be noticed again once the layout is completed. Many visitors including the builder will most likely not take the time to study them, they are too busy watching & running trains. Those are more of a personal satisfaction, not really prominent in the overall layout.

Does anyone ever lift the roofs off the structures and notice the details? Unlikely as years pass on. It's all good, J.M.O.
