Si,

I picked up a bunch of brass track (nobody wants brass rail) so I figured I'd put it to use.

I'm even making my own ties to give handlaying a try.

I've been wanting to incorporate some alkali scenery kinda like Duane's SPNG.

Roundhouse Gang Swap Meet at the Santa Fe Station in San Bernardino.







Picked up some brass rail, some switches, a HO fuel tank, and a crane car.  Brass rail is cheap (nobody wants it) and I think it's easier to solder.  The rest of the stuff is for parts and scratch building.

Si,

Yes, A CRANE!

I remembered your posts about building your own crane, and so I've been on the lookout for something I could use.  Sure, it's HO scale, but it still has its hook and rigging.  The car frame can still be used although probably widen a little, along with some kind of new cab.  Would probably replace the six-wheel trucks with four-wheeled ones.  But, for five bucks how could I go wrong?





I also like the Bachmann Bobber caboose.  The frame works out nicely for a small four-wheeled car.  Get the one with metal wheels...it rolls better.  This one only cost me two bucks. 

One just needs to look outside their chosen scale.

Ken,

Where's the fun in that coming home empty handed? :bg:

I think most of us have way more 'stuff' than we can ever use.  I know I have a long list of projects and 'stuff' to go with it.  I think we're all part pack rat.  Besides, when the urge strikes to start a new project it's nice to have everything you need on hand.

I've been picking up small plastic storage bins in a hopeless attempt to get myself organized.

I did talk with a few people at the swap meet about 1/35 scale and FreeRails.  Just spreading the good word.  Maybe we'll get a few new members?

Howdy Michael, the 3/16 tie material is OK, the ties "should be" probably 5" by 5' in scale but whatever you like is fine. I use my bandsaw to cut tie strip from sheets but also use a balsa stripper when I don't feel like messing with the saw. Cutting to length...if cutting boards with the stripper, I cut the sheets into tie length pieces and then cut the ties. If cutting long strips, I bundle the strips together wrapped in masking tape and cut them at one time with the bandsaw. Either way works the same anyway.

Woodie
