It’s time for Weekend Photo Fun!!

Last week I started to prep the room next to my Tinplate layout at the club. We  will be going through the wall into the next room.

The floor tiles are nasty and may have asbestos backed. So I grabbed 20 year old left over tiles at home and did this. Since it will be under the table no one will see them after the table is finished94D331DA-5BC8-42DC-9019-508575748AE3

The room is directly behind these locomotives. The black locomotive track will go through the wall once it is finished.

Scott, If the tile on the floor measure 9"x9", you are correct. They are hot. Same with the adhesive, if it black in color, it is hot also.  Just for future reference.

 

 

With the age of the building, 101 years, that was my assumption. The basement was the Signaling Office for N&W's Shenandoah Division. I mopped the floor which may have been the first mopping in 20 plus years and still every time I knelt down my pants legs were black. Since I will end up under the table to do wiring and on the floor to build the table it was better to just cover it now.

Alex also upgraded my two Weaver PRR K4 steamers so I can double head them, with the K4 Steamlined in the front.

Surprise!  Surprise!  611 is here in Spencer, NC at the NCTM.  All morning was hearing a big steam Whistle coming from the direction of the NCTM about a mile and a quarter    away as the crow fly.  So just went over there.  Today she is in service doing at the throttle driving at $611.00 a pop.  Unfortunately they are doing this on the back-side so could not see it from street.  Hear she may be here to or through February.

Had no clue she was to be here.  Apparently steamed in last Wednesday evening.

I didn't make it to the Black Hall. I'm sorry I missed it.  I stayed mostly in the Orange and Purple Halls. I did take a shuttle to the Blue and Silver Halls. After walking through those halls I was pretty tired.

My son took some photos with his new smartphone.  When I looked at them, I flashed back to the many photos I've seen taken in the 30's and 40's...he's a talented fellow, with a great eye for composition.  IMHO.

Those are really great photos Ed.

Thanks, Dave. I’ll pass on your compliments to my son. 

All you need now is one of those detective figures from those novels that take place around the 30's & 40's to make a new scene. That is if you needed one. B&W is such a great medium to use in anything. My sister took a picture when her two daughters were 8 & 4 or there abouts in B&W and it was an amazing set of photos.

Dave, you are so right. I was sorting old photos to scan and ran across photos of my dad building our first train layout, well actually the bench work. They were taken in the late 40's early 50's and what amazing photos they are.  You gave me a great idea...the detective theme....here's a pic of a Cadillac parked in front of the Lionel Hobby Shop....could be a big diner..all I need is a few figures....one with a fedora and trenchcoat...and of course a beautiful "dame"...

Ed, make sure to get some crime boss figures as well as the cars to go with them. I believe in 1:43 they have Al Capone's car somewhere out there. I saw one at 2018's October York but didn't buy it(was a little pricey I thought and had limited funds since it was day 3).

I think it is cool to tell a story without really telling it. I have liked some of the layouts features in the magazine that sort of touch on a story with your mind guessing what's going on. Of course it also helps with a little background. I think one of the articles had the local drunk(figure was laying down in the alley) and the author had said something about his figure being down on his luck. You just got to love the feel of it.
