Current Project:
Jan. 15, 2017
: Installing couplers on the SAL B7 box car. The other big news is that I have decided to start over again on my sectional diorama. Everything will be same, except that I am going to start by rebuilding the sectional framework. The insulation foam board I used is buckling like crazy, and it is also out-gassing. I am unable to get nice flat track, so that is just not a good way to start a major project. From now on it will be 3/4" plywood all the way! I am in the process of revising the section of this web site that covers that diorama.
