Hi Mike :wave:



I always liked your 1:35 Brookville project very much ! :thumb:


I have been collecting some Brookville proto-photos for a while now. :old dude:

Just had a look through them recently ...

... & couldn't resist Posting these 2 !








Too  C :cool: :cool: L  for school ! :)



Indian mountain railways are OK ...

... but I can't help wondering if you've already got the basis of a neat lil' railroad, right here ! L:














What a GREAT lil' locie ! :)



Dunno about gloomy WWI trench-railways myself ... :f:

... but that Brooky would fit right into any small industrial theme, of many different eras !!



Just need a small handful of stock ...

... & maybe a SNOWPLOW ! ;)



Nice ! :pimp:



:moose: :moose: :moose: :moose: :moose:



Si.

Thanks Si.

Funny enough, I pulled it out and looked at it just the other day. It needs some more details on that base. Right now, building a railroad isn't a good idea. I think I'm going to be moving again soon but I could do some more work on it and maybe build a few cars. Hum...

Hi Mike :wave:



Great minds think alike ! :old dude:



The difference between building a layout & building a few cars + detailing ... is MASSIVE !

Layouts may well be nice ...

... but they are also commitments that time, space, money, moving etc. sometimes just won't allow at present.



Personally I don't think ones 'modelmaking spirit' should be dampened by such things.

Car building is FUN, time needed is minimal, so's the space & so's the dough.



I potter along at present, with not that much thought about the bigger picture ...

... but the Mysterious Moose Mountain carshop manages to knock out a new car every month or so.

No pressure whatsoever. :moose:

When I've made my rolling-stock ... THEN it's time to think about the BIG stuff !



Go on Mike, sniff some MEK ...

... and glue 'super-details' to your thumbnails ...

... you know you want to !



;)



Si.

I’ve got a couple competition planes to finish up before the season begins this spring. Once I have those done, I’ll get back on this project.

Thanks for the kick in the butt, Si.... and Woodie.
