Yep, beautiful stuff. That railcar is described here on FR and was a feature in Garden RR magazine a few months back. Ray's layout looks real and of course it IS real! Outstanding work and beautiful photography. Our thanks to you Ray for posting the great pix.

Woodie

About the steps, would this set please your senses? :


At your service as usual, Jose.

I used .001" brass shim stock, which I cut into strips and then corrugated by embossing it against a piece of corrugated plastic that I had picked up online somewhere.

The corrugated strips were then glued to the structure, sprayed with a self-etching primer, and then sprayed with Rustoleum's "Cold Galvanizing Compound" for an authentic zinc finish. Then I weathered it slightly with latex paints.

Excellent work Ray, especially that Mineral Ridge Mill & boxcar photo.

How about some classy curly handrail steps like these (Holmfirth, Yorks. UK) :

Still haven't had time to do any modeling, but here are a few more recent photos…

Multiple crossings over Serenity Canyon:




The sorting house at the top of the Mineral Ridge Mill, with the Cliffside Mine visible in the background at upper right:




A train passes through the town of Mineral Ridge:




Enjoy!

I had a little time today to put up a few more pics...



Here's the ore bin at the Princess Shilo Mine:





A freight train pulled by a steam locomotive passes through the town of Dos Manos:





Here's a close up view of structures at the Cliffside Mine. On the left is the powder magazine, where explosives are kept. On the right is the wooden ore bin:





An old stone cabin at the ruins of the Monolith Mine:





And here's the interior of the cabin. A 55-gallon drum has been turned into a crude wood-burning stove:





Also, yesterday we finally replaced our flimsy, canvas-topped gazebo with a new, all-metal one. Made by Hampton Bay, it's attractive and very sturdy! I had to replace the canvas on the old one every two years, at least. This one should last a good long time:

Here are a couple new pics. In this first shot, a train is seen from below as it crosses the big trestle over Serenity Canyon:





Here's a shot from late in the day as a freight train crosses a stone arch bridge at the west end of the line. Above it is the Princess Shilo Mine. The Cliffside Mine can be seen in the distance at the top:





Enjoy!
