Hi,

This is my first post here so let me introduce myself, I'm Tim Warris and am currently building a portable HO layout of the CNJ Bronx Terminal as it existed in New York in the 1940's

I recently finished the front edge of the layout to look like an old rusty piece of riveted scrap iron.  Thought I would post a few pictures here.









Larger versions of these and other images are on my site at the link below...

Cheers!

Tim W.

Welcome Tim,

 

I’ve been watching your site for quite awhile. Great stuff. The base looks great. Can’t wait to see it complete.

The fascia is just the tip of the iceberg. Check out the track work.

Man, the more I look at that wonderful edging, the more I become convinced that I will do something similar for my layout. My railroad probably wouldn't have nice rusty edges, but worn-out nasty rusty edges. Maybe weathered wood or something funky like that. Anyway, thanks for the inspiration, that makes a model railroad look finished like a piece of artwork....which it is.

Woodie :-   what about some copper sheeting fixed in place with small copper nails the some staining and patina finish.   From looking at your work I am sure you could make something of it.  As a bonus the copper won't rust, as you are getting older and older, one day the rain is going to beat you.
