Done as much as I care to on the crane. 

At least for the time being. 

Added some gears for interest,
quick paint job to tone down the plastic sheen,
a little weathering,
re-built the cab,
and a ladder to climb into the thing.

Hi Michael  :mex:


AWESOME lookin' yard-crane from your $2 Buck swap-meet find !  :thumb:





Both the photos are really nice, to see The Yard as a busy part of the N.I.& E.R.R.  :cb:

The weathering is highlighting the RIVETs enough, so you could almost count them !!  ;)

Gotta be worth ... 5 Big Hats ! ! ! ! !     (& $2 Bucks !!)  :doh:

Haven't done much modeling lately.
 
Took a trip through Death Valley, Rhyolite, Goldfield, Tonopah, Bodie and Mono Mills.
Lots of old mining history out there, and lots of inspiration.

Trying to get back into working on some projects and running some trains.

Trying to get back into making some progress on a long list of projects.

Wife just had knee surgery so I have to play nurse. 
Cuts into the modeling time.










The NI&E is in bad need of some additional passenger equipment. 
First on the list is a mail/baggage/express car. 
This will be about 18' over the buffers. 

I made my own rendition of radial couplers,
so that the car will go around the tight curves at Whiskey Flats. 

It will have a bit of an interurban flavor to it,
maybe because I've been reading a book on the CCT
(Central California Traction).

Couplers are installed and tested on the sharp curves at Whiskey Flats. 

I tried several ways to install the couplers,
and ended up just gluing them into the brass channel. 

When was the last time you heard the shop foreman tell his crew to "just glue it on."


Now on to building the body.
I have no real plans, just some photos and an idea in my head.

Hi Michael,

If you are after fast and "cheap" passenger accommodation,
just bolt some park benches to the flat car deck.

Yes I know of at least 2 outfits that have done that.
No photos to protect the guilty.

;)

Oz,

The Baby Gauge (two-footer) in Death Valley did just that. 

Bolt some benches to some flat cars and you're in business.

Here is a barn in Bodie that stores a couple of horse-drawn wagons. 

It has good possibilities for modeling.

I took just this past October.
