Great lookin loco, Ken!

How come the sound misses a beat now and then? Reed switch too far from magnet?

Too much side play between the axle and the side of the truck. I have to put a bushing in there to correct it.

This past week was beautiful, so I had to get the K out and put a few laps on it. As you can hear in the video, I managed to get the chuff worked out and got the white LED's installed in the front class lights, and the back up light on the tender.

Glad to see you are posting again, Ken

For some reason, I cant get the video to work, but I know the problem is on my end, 'puter doesn't want to play any vid's today--have to get my guru son to look at it.

I was never real happy with the station  in  Mancos, so over this past winter I scratch built a new station for Mancos. I finally found a picture of Mancos Depot in one of my books.

This is the current set up in Mancos.


This is what I want it to look like, so over the winter I started the build. The freight end is a Colorado Scale Models freight building and the rest will be a coroplast skeleton with Precision products veneer.

The basic shell:








The track in Mancos will be rearranged to allow more switch possibilities.


2of the the 3 new switches are built. The third will be built once I have an idea of how it should be laid out.


Hopefully this should make it a bit more interesting when switching Mancos.

Hi Ken

Been wondering what you've been up to.

I just wouldn't be able to bring myself to subject such a nice structure to the elements if I had built it!

Very nice--and it's always good to have more sidings---

Let me know when you have the next "do" out there--I couldn't make the last one.

Hey Herb,

That coroplast and Precision Products veneer is pretty hardy stuff and light weight and easy to work with. It's almost the same kind of structure as the Delores Depot, but quite a bit bigger. Should have been the other way around, but I was limited with space in Delores.

The next to-do will probably be at the end of March, following the East Coast LS train show. Some of the guys usually stop by before they mosey on home. I'll send ya the details since I'm not sure of the date just yet.

Don't feel bad about not makin the last one, nobody else could either. It was kinda spur of the moment anyways..........

Here's another building I put together when I finished the Depot. Haven't figgered out yet where I'll put it, but I have an idea..........
